Look at the radiator and follow the top hose into where in meets the engine and the thermostate is in the piece that is connected to the engine. easy enough to do.

Can I use a 97 GMC Jimmy brake booster to replace a 98 GMC Jimmy brake booster? I'm buying a vehicle and need this part but found a 97 way cheaper than the 98 and they look the same! TIA

I don't if that differs between manufacturers? I looked at for your brake booster, cardone part for your vehicle lists 97--2005 for your vehicle, brake booster.
If all the hook-ups are the same as the one your looking at, I don't know why it wouldn't work?
You know how it is, I see nothing from here.

Heater not working from my 97 GMC jimmy. Change

Do you feel heat on both heater core hoses? If not then it might have a blocked heater core, low coolant level, defective heater control valve or a blend door issue.

Check to make sure both hoses are getting hot. A significant amount of temperature differential could indicate a bad or incorrectly installed thermostat, air in the system or a plugged radiator. I would also put a block tester especially if it overheated badly as it could have blown the head gasket. The block tester will indicate if exhaust gasses have found their way into the cooling system by way of a blown head gasket which may cause vehicle to overheat.

Where is the bcm located on a 1997 gmc jimmy?

Hi. A '97 jimmy does not have a body control module (bcm), it does, however, have an engine control module (ecm) located on top of the coolant reservoir.

Where can i find the thermostat on 1986 gmc jimmy

Follow the upper radiator hose to the outlet elbow (the waterneck!) and it is located under it:

Removal & Installation
  1. Drain the radiator until the coolant level is below the thermostat level (below the level of the intake manifold).
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

  1. Remove the water outlet elbow assembly from the engine. Remove the thermostat from inside the elbow.
  2. Install new thermostat in the reverse order of removal, making sure the spring side is inserted into the elbow. Clean the gasket surfaces on the water outlet elbow and the intake manifold. Use a new gasket when installing the elbow to the manifold. On later models the thermostat housing may have been sealed with RTV sealant. If so, place a 1/8 inch bead of RTV sealer all around the thermostat housing sealing surface on the intake manifold and install the housing while it is still wet. Refill the radiator to approximately 21/2 inch below the filler neck.
If the thermostat is equipped with a pin hole, be sure to install pin side facing upwards.

Need to replace passenger side view mirror 200 GMC Jimmy Diamond

On my '97, there was a triangular shaped piece of plastic on the inside trim that had to be removed. I think all three mounting screws were under that. It's been a few years, but I think that was how it was done.
I remember it was pretty easy though.
