Trace the upper radiator hose to the mounting area on the intake manifold. Loosen the hose clamp on the manifold end of the hose and remove the hose. Pull the thermostat out of the intake manifold.

SOURCE: thermostat

Usually the replacement thermostat.

Some sockets in the rights size to remove the thermostat from the car should be on one of the big hoses going into the engine. Some come with gaskets some don't need them. You usually get one with the thermostat when you purchase it from the store. Usually a very cheap part. 15 -20 dollars max.

SOURCE: Need to replace tail light bulb on 1996 Buick Century

Inside the trunk, under the carpet behind the tail lights will be a whole bunch of small plastic nuts, running from one side of the car to the other. Take all of these plastic nuts off, and the whole tail light assembly will come off in one large piece. Find the bulb you need to replace, and reassemble

SOURCE: Need to know roughly how long it would take to

Depends on your level of experience, quality of your tools and whether or not you have any frozen head bolts. The valve assembly and head come off as one unit on those. To clear the wires, emmision controls ect off of the top of the valve cover 30 minutes. remove valve cover 5 minutes (too scrape off excess gasket material. to remove exhaust manifold from side of head, (assuming no broken/stuck/stripped bolts 15 minutes with good hydraulic tools. To remove head (assuming all goes well and hydraulic tools, 15 minutes. To reassemble, double all times as surfaces need to be prepped and gaskets applied and proper torque on all bolts. It's an afternoon job if you ahve everything you need and nothing goes wrong. Typically add at least two or three hours of drilling and cursing to a head gasket replacement. and a trip for new drill bits and a tap (not beer) for the new hole you drilled.

SOURCE: i need to replace the thermostat on my 01 buick

Drain about 1/4 of your radiator fluid into pan with petcock under radiator. Then follow upper radiator hose and it will lead directly to the thermostat housing. It should have about 3 bolts on it. Just pull off hose, then housing. Thermostat will pull right out. You may or may not get a gasket with new one. If not, you can use RTV silicone for $3-4 and spread a thin layer of silicone around between housing and surface, then reconnect everything. Let dry for couple hours, refill radiator while veheicle is running and make sure thermostat opens. When open, coolant level will drop and you should add more til full. Then your done.
