Go to the rear of the engine and follow the lower radiator house it'll lead you to the Thermostat.

There is also a fan switch in the housing held on by two head bolts,be ever so careful not to break these bolts as well. There may be a wire to a 10 mm headed bolt that is the main ground to the PGM-Fi computer. Double check that it is connected when you are done ! Good luck

Location of the engine diagram for a 2000 Buick Century. The engine has overheated when the coolant reservoir has water still in it.

On a cold engine, remove radiator cap, where applicable, is there coolant in the radiator? Usually the reservoir has cold and hot coolant levels marked on it. If it got too hot that reservoir would fill up in a hurry. When it got hot, what was the temp reading in degrees F? When it got hot, was the radiator fan running?
If your thinking thermostat, the engine side of upper radiator hose, should go to thermostat housing. Have to remove thermostat housing to get at thermostat.
Any applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check po codes for free or use an obd2 code reader to check codes, yourself. There could be other issues, coolant temp sensor, gasket problem--if combustion gases in the coolant.

I have a 2001 monte carlo and the coolant fan is only working on the passenger side and my car is running hot I changed the thermostat but it still runs hot

I have found the staff of your local Auto Zone, Napa, Auto Parts stores may know who with in their location has knowledge/back ground in such issues, and if not are usually familiar with the local repair shops that do; hence repair shops usually allocate their parts from local suppliers.

Location of thermostat in Dodge Dakota 2000 4x4, 6cylinder, 3.9

The thermostat is located on the rightside of the truck as viewed from the drivers seat. Follow the upper rad hose it connects to the thermostat housing. A good way to check if the thermostat is stuck is when the motor running and fully warmed up squeeze the hoses if it is hard then the thermostat is stuck. Another way is with the motor hot feel if the upper rad hose is hot; if it's not then your thermostat is stuck. Hope this helps.

Where is the thermostat located


Your engine must be cold before removing the thermostat.

Find the location of your thermostat by following the rubber hose located on bottom of your radiator (passenger side) to the point where it attaches to the engine. Remove the two bolts at that location and you'll find your thermostat nestled in there.

Be sure to place a pail under the car to contain the coolant.

Thermostat Operation:

00047_thermostat.jpgThe automotive thermostat is a temperature controlled on and off valve. When the temperature rises to a predetermined temperature, the thermostat opens up to allow the engine coolant to flow through the cylinder block and the radiator. This flow is crucial to maintain optimum operating temperature for fuel efficiency, enhanced driveability, and engine protection. The coolant flow is reduced when the engine is cold, and the flow is increased when the engine is hot. Contrary to popular opinion, operating the vehicle without the thermostat doesn't make the engine run cooler. It will actually run hotter because there isn't a thermostat to slow the coolant flow. This means the coolant doesn't stay in the radiator long enough to dissipate its heat.

All the best

Thermostat location on 3.2

Follow the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the top of the motor...this connection is called the thermostat housing...remove the 2 bolts on the housing...the thermostat is in this sure to use proper gaskets when not service while hot...expect antifreeze to run out a little when disconnecting:)
