You can do it and save $$$ doing it yourself. Trace top radiator hose back to engine under aluminum housing is your thermostat. Go to any parts store buy your parts and they'll be more than happy to explain or show you how easy it is.

REMOVAL:

  • Remove the air cleaner and duct assembly.

The removal and installation of the thermostat... tunde007_2.jpg

INSTALLATION:
  • Install the thermostat.
  • Install the thermostat housing and gasket.


NOTE: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  • Install the thermostat housing bolts and tighten them to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  • Install the radiator hose to the thermostat housing.
  • Install the crossover exhaust pipe.
  • Install the air cleaner and duct assembly.
  • Fill the cooling system.

here is a pic of the thermostat housing in case you dont know what it looks like. its a very easy part to change although sometimes they are hard to get to. just make sure you do not put the thermostat in backwards the coil on the thermostat should go towards the hot side (coolant coming from the engine)

Where is the cross over exhaust pipe on a 2005 Buick rendezvous


It is the exhaust pipe that goes from the front to the back of the engine above the bellhousing. The thermostat should be where the top radiator hose connects to the engine.
