Question about Chevrolet Venture
Remove cap radiator when cold
Drain radiator well below thermostat level.
Disconnect rubberhose from thermostat housing to radiator. Do this at radiator side first cautious to prevent blocked fluid to run over engine . Undo radiator housing cover. Be sure to have new spare gasket. And right type new thermostat with corresponding temperature opening rating.
Take out thermostat. Put new one in in the good position not reversed down (it opens at temperaturing pupping upwards. Check for presence of de-airation hole with little valve.
Put gasket and cover . Tighten the bolts without killing them. Fill radiator to level. Leave a while do de-air leveling over that little hole valve in thermostat I mentioned. I necessarry fill again.
Whilst doing this job be sure the seizure of old thermostat was not due to broken down cooling pump, broken radior fan with activating switch on engine block. At times they go together.
Don't fill with pure water unless for backflushing system. Otherwise vapor bellows in th system will crack the engine block. Some hotspots exceed water vapor point!!
