Top center behind the top pulley. Follow the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine. I've always called that piece that the hose connects to, the gooseneck. So you take the hose off, then you take the gooseneck off and there sits the thermostat. Make sure you scrape off the old gasket and replace it with a new one. Also, don't try to run your van without a thermostat, your gas mileage will drop off the charts. We used to do that back in the day before all the computer controlled stuff when I lived in Florida. If I've helpped you, please remember to rate me. Thanks.

I have a 2005 grand prix gt temp guage reads normal and heat is on and warm when start driving heat gets colder or if i change to defrost its cold air doeasnt stay hot car doesnt over heat though changed...


The heating coil is probably getting plugged up. You may have heat at idle or slow speeds, but once you get going, there is not enough coolant going through it to stay warm. Get the system flushed or replace the heating coil.

Break light stayed on after changing break pads GMC safari van


You may just need to have the code cleared. If you have a reader that will erase or reset dtc codes thats all it will take. some codes will reset just by doing a few drive cycles but other codes need to be cleared. There are a lot of places that will read or reset the codes for free if you don;t have a reader. That would also give you a chance to see if there are other problems such as brake pad sensors that are also part of the problem.

I have a 2005 GMC Safari. Oil pressure usually around 40. I just changed oil 5w/30 and filter and now pressure is running at 60+. Should I be concerned?


Heavier oil will increase the oil pressure. keep your eye on the gauge for the next few days & take notice of any change. If so have it checked out. Hopefully it will stay where its at for now. At 1200 miles the pressure should decrease some after the oil impurities are broke down

Engine temp


try skewing the engine coolant temperature sensor with a multi-meter and a temp vs resistance or voltage chart. the ect could be out of range and not set a code. also check actual engine temp with an infrared thermometer. hope this helps

My heater will not turn to high in my 2005 GMC Safari


I'm facing the same problem. I am part way finished replacing the motor. Here's what I know so far. Disconnect wiring for blower motor (located up against the firewall on the passenger side). Unbolt the front face from the fan housing (5 7mm bolts). Here's where I get stuck - remove the squirrel cage from the motor, there is some kind of a clip holding the cage onto the motor - how does it come off? Once it is off, replace the old motor with a new one and put things back together.

How do I get access to the heating system on a 2005 gmc safari van. The fan is not blowing on all speeds and I think I need to change the switch.


Like most GMC Vans, remove the dashboard, then the heat core cover....

Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

Transmission stays in 2nd gear when i stop 1997 gmc safari


what that means is that you have a solenoid in the transmission that is either sticking or is no longer any good. you don't have to replace the wholetransmission but need a replacement solenoid/and or pump.
