Question about 2006 Pontiac Torrent
I see the two bolts i need to remove, but it looks like I have to remove an exhaust pipe that runs against the thermostat...Im not sure how to do that....Iam not overheating, but new engine light code says that thermostat or cooling system not heating up to correct temps...LOW Temperature....
If your motor is the 3.4 then you dont have to worry bout the exst pipe since the thermostat housing has a slotted hole were the pipe is, but beware that those two 10mm bolts are somtimz very tight so youll probly need little extra leverage, otherwise its simple

Had this problem once mine was 13mm bolt. I took an old wrench heated it with a torch and bent it just the right angle. worked perfect.

YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE UPPER INTAKE MANIFOLD. ALSO, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE LOWER INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKETS. THIS IS A MANUFACTURING FLAW. THE PLASTIC INTAKE CRACKS CAUSING AN INTERNAL COOLANT LEAK. YOU CAN RESEARCH THIS ON LINE.

Are your cooling fans working? that will definately be a problem if not working. if they are working shut car off and feel the radiator is it the same temp all over or is it hot in only top or one smaller area. if you do not have same temp feeling on all of radiator your radiator may be plugged.

i'm not being smart, but do you know for sure you are installing the thermostat correctly? the thermostat is there to slow the water flow down long enough for the water to obsorb the heat .also is the cooling fans operating ?do the fans come on at around 210 degrees?is the radiator grill clean? lower spoiler intact? does the engine over heat at highway speeds or while idling? are there any codes?is the engine running lean? possible fuel filter stopped up.fuel injectors dirty. let me know
