Beneath the lower Rad hose. But you shouldn't need to drain the Rad to change your thermostat. At least I don't think.

Where is the radiator drain valve located on 2007 GMC Acadia SLT FWD?


No More Radiator Drain Valves in GM vehicles

0

Starting in 2003, GM discontinued the use of a drain hose attached to the radiator drain valve. Later, GM discontinued the use of a radiator drain valve altogether. Some models continued to include a drain valve, but the valve was permanently sealed during production. Do NOT try and operate these sealed valves-they will break. GM warns that if you try to remove and replace the valve, debris from the breakage may circulate throughout the system and damage water pump, heater core, and thermostat components.
The bottom line is that you must now either remove the lower radiator hose or use a siphon to remove coolant from the radiator. This bulletin applies to all 1998-04 GM cars and trucks.

How to change thermostat


The Termostat fit inside the Termostat Housing. It normally links to one of the radiator hoses leading from the engine block or radiator. Depending on the model you have, the termostat housing needs to be opened, the old termostat removed and the new termostat inserted. It's quiet simple. Before closing up, make sure that the both surfaces on the housing are clean and free from dirt and old sealant. If you remove a gasket, then replace with new gasket. If the housing takes a rubber O ring, then it is advisable to replace this.

Good Luck

My heat stop working,i was told it is the termostat can not find the termostat


the t-stat is located on the front side of the engine underneath. you actually have better visibilty underneath the vehicle. i would perform a flush prior to replacing any parts. if it was the t-stat, you would also have over heat issues. a t-stat is nothing more then a temperature sensitive, mechanical restriction in the cooling system. wax pellets heat up during the warm up process allowing the engine to heat more rapidly during cold start and push the valve open allowing for flow to the radiator. go to your local parts store and for about $10 you can get a flush chemical which will help flush your system of contaminants and corrosion and then refill the system with fresh coolant and distilled water. be sure that the system is totally full and bled or you will know the first time you take it out and it over heat due to lack of fluid.

Replace thermostate


Trace the water hose back towards the engine. When it stops you have located the thermostat. Remove and place in some boiling eater. If it opens the thermostat is not defective.

Location of the jiggle vavle on the termostat on a 1997 intrepid?


The jiggle valve must be placed in the recess provided at one side of the t-stat housing. The side of the t-stat that looks like an erect nipple, must point up.
