All you need is a ratchet and socket that will fit the bolts and you should be good to go

    It's a 13 mm and it's not as easy as just removing the bolts since you should have the crossover manifold in the way. Top bolt you can get to with a socket, the bottom one you can see but the crossover blocks the use of a socket and unless it's been loosen already even a stubby 13mm box wrench dosn't have the room to swing

Where thersmostat on malibu 2000


Follow the radiator hose back to the engine on the top side. Where the hose connects to the engine is the thermostat housing. Remove the hose clamp and hose (when vehicle is cool). remove the housing itself and the thermostat will be right in front of you.

How difficult is is to change the water pump on a 2000 Chevy Silverado and are there special tools needed?


Hi, my name is Ben. I wouldn't call this a difficult repair, but it is time consuming. You may need a special tool to help you remove the water pump pulley.
Remove the air intake duct, remove the upper radiator shroud,remove the fan assembly, loosen the bolts on the water pump pulley a few turns before removing the serpentine belt, then remove the serpentine belt, now remove the water pump pulley, if it's a V-8 remove the lower radiator hose and thermostat housing,unbolt the water pump, if it's tight lightly tap it with a RUBBER mallet. Important, clean the gasket surfaces very well. apply a thin coat of RTV on both gasket surfaces and install a new gasket. On V-6 engines use a small amount of the RTV on the bolt threads. The rest in the reverse of removal. Once completed, refill with coolant and check for leaks, bring the engine to notmal operating temperature and turn the heat on high

Power window switch


You will need a special tool to remove the door panel, get some extra plastic bolts while at the parts store, because they invariably break during removal, keep careful track of positions of screw and attaching hardware during disassembly. Carefuly rmove every screw that you can find some are hidden under caps that will have to be removed with a small screwdriver. then pull door panel until you feel where plastic inserts are and use special tool to pry door panel off, if the switch can be accessed the entire door panel may not need to be taken off, match the wires to the switch and remove and install.
