Follow the hose that runs down from the fill tank and you will see it turn and run it a medal peace and that is where it is located. 2 bolts and removing a clamp is all it takes to remove it

Drain some of the coolant until you are sure it will not spill over when you remove the hose.
Remove the hose from the radiator .(Top) Hose. follow the hose to the thermostat housing. Remove the hose by removing the clamps.the thermostat is located in the housing. remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing. remove the housing. be careful to notice the position of the thermostat. Make sure you get the proper degree thermostat . Ask the vendor. give as much info as possible. mainly the size of the engine. remove the thermostat. You will get a new gasket with your new thermostat. Clean off the sufaces of the thermostat housing before installing the gasket.use a little grease to hold the gasket in place. and reinstall the new thermostat. replace housing and hose and refill with antifreeze/coolant. i hope this works for you and you vote for my answer.

SOURCE: pontiac sunfire

I had that problem last year. I bought a new starter but it was not the correct one for my car. For the 98 there are two different starters. I bought the wrong one the first time. My step father started to put it one and realized it was not the same as the one he just pulled off. Ending up taking it with us when we returned the orginial one I bought. The orginial one I bought was about $70 the correct one was $400. The auto store did not have the correct one listed as a replacement part. Until the number off of the part was keyed into the system and found out that it was just not the common replacement part.

SOURCE: Were is the thermostat located in a Pontiac Sunfire 2000?

Hi:
Your thermostat is located under the thermostat housing, which is what the upper radiator hose clamps to on the top of your engine. Basically, you need to start with a cold engine, drain your radiator, then unclamp the upper radiator hose from the engine. Remove the bolts from the thermostat housing, and gently tap on it to remove it. clean up the mounting surfaces on both the engine and the housing, and install a new thermostat, and new gasket. tighten to proper torque, reconnect the radiator hose, then refill up the radiator and cooling system.

SOURCE: 1998 pontiac sunfire, where is te turn signal fuse

When you open up the drivers side door there should be a panel right on the end of the dashboard. Pull it open and look there. I generally have the fuse diagrams but can't seem to find it for your car. It might be written on the inside of the panel you pull off. You should also have the diagram inside of your book you got with the car unless someone took it out. Look in your glove box it might be there.

Thermostat installed correctly? in backwards? low on coolent? Clogged coolent passageways, might want to flush system and refill. Too much antifreeze/not enough water will cause this also.
