SOURCE: replacing thermostat on 3100 sfi v6

1. drain coolant from radiator
2. unbolt and remove the water neck from the engine block (it's attached to the upper radiator hose) and scrape any leftover gasket material off of the mating surface w/ a razor or gasket scraper, being careful not to actually gouge the metal
3. pull thermostat out of engine block (it's easy to see w/ the water neck off)
4. scrape any gasket material off mating surface on engine side, being even more careful not to gouge the metal here
5. place new t-stat on engine side opening
6. place gasket over the thermostat (you can put a thin bead of RTV sealant on both sides of the gasket if you wish, some people think it's overkill, but i hate doing things twice)
7. replace water neck
8. refill cooling system, use the little brass bleeder screw on top of the motor to bleed out the air until a steady stream of coolant is coming out after the engine is warmed up. close the screw.

Will a 2002 Pontiac 3100 interchange with a 2000 Buick 3800?

Not really.
The 3100 is a Chevy 2.8 and the 3800 is a Buick engine.
Most everything is different including exhaust manifolds, engine brackets, and wiring.

3100 sfi v6 idleing to high

This can be pretty easy to fix. Spray the engine seams on the intake manifold with water from a spray bottle while the engine is running. If you have a manifold leak, the engine RPM will drop or the engine will stall when you find the air leak.

Think of this as having the throttle open. When you press down on the throttle, you give the engine more gas and more air. An air leak on the motor will also let it speed up without your foot being on the gas pedal.

If you find no leaks, check the fuel pressure. There can be a fuel pressure regulator problem if it no longer restricts the flow of fuel.

Another part called a throttle position sensor can cause problems if it is shorted and fails to regulate the throttle.

Where is located tps in altima 97

1997 Nissan/Datsun Altima 2.4L SFI DOHC 4cyl: the Throttle Position (TP) sensor is a potentiometer. It is mounted on the side of the throttle body and is connected to the throttle plate shaft. The sensor monitors throttle plate movement and position, and transmits an appropriate electrical signal to the ECM. These signals are used by the ECM to adjust the air/fuel mixture and spark timing according to engine load. The TP sensor is adjustable on some models.
Automatic transaxle/transmission TP sensors contain position switches. These switches provide a signal to the ECM when the engine is at idle and wide open throttle.

Hope helps (remmeber to rate and comment this).
