Question about 1991 Nissan Stanza
Get the gasket and the thermostat ... winter temp thermostat ... tho summer should be fine.... two bolts hold the housing on to the engine block... remove them .... clean off any of the old gasket... make sure you put the thermostat in the proper way... i believe the part that heats up goes toward the motor but check on that.... some do and some don't but i would apply some gasket goo and then bolt it back up. start it up.... check the level of the antifreeze and add if necessary... check for leaks..... put the rad cap back on after it's heated enough that water is flowing.... as it builds up pressure ... check for leaks again.... i've left this for last but it should be first.... drain some of the antifreeze before you start the job.... doesn't have to be all of it.
after a few cycles of heating up... check that the bolts are still tight and that there are no leaks... remember one thing... antifreeze will leak where water wouldn't.

Disconnect the negative battery cable. Using a syringe, turkey baster or similar tool, drain two third of the brake fluid from the master cylinder. Raise the Grand AM up and secure it on jackstands. Remove the wheel assembly.
Remove the caliper from the steering knuckle. Using mechanic's wire suspend the caliper from the frame of the vehicle. Avoid having the caliper dangle or hang from the brake hose or it will result in the brake line being damaged. Remove both the inboard and outboard brake pads. To unseat the clip tilt the inboard pad out at the top.
Remove the outboard pad. Release the mounting dowel from the hole in the caliper by pushing the outside pad in an inward motion. Pull the inboard pad outward to remove it from the caliper.
Install the inboard pad. Make sure that the spring clip engages in the caliper position. Install the outboard pad over the caliper end. Make sure that the mounting dowels snap into the mounting holes in the caliper. Install the caliper over the rotor onto steering knuckle.
Insert the caliper mounting bolts and sleeves. Torque the bolts to 23-ft. lbs. Reconnect the wheel assembly. Add brake fluid. Reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery.
Start the engine and pump the brakes 3 to 4 times to seat the brake pads. Test drive the vehicle at slow to moderate speeds to ensure that the maintenance was performed correctly.
