Thermostat housing is connected on the block itself. Just get one at scrapyard for 20$

    ...or you could just remove the alternator to have easy acces and you drill the hole of broken bolt then you fit a bigger bolt inside. Dont forget to not drill too big so it wont inferfere the gasket when the elbow is back on.

Check your battery terminals and clean them with a wire brush if they are corroded and make sure they are tight. If this doesn't work check the following: Fuel tank empty?, spark plugs incorrectly gapped if they are new, if old- maybe replace them, possibly faulty ignition coils, then maybe the crankshaft sensor is bad or timing chain is broken. I got the latter of information from the Haynes Repair Manual. Check this stuff in order. Good luck.

The auto tensioneris down low and dificult to get to.
If it has not been changed in a while you will need a long thin push stick and a serpentine tool.
Push on the belt hard at the auto adjuster and pop the belt off the smooth pully (located top).
hook up the serpentine belt tool and then mount the new belt

SOURCE: 1996 Chevy cavalier is stuck in neutral

There are no easy fixes with automatic transmission but you could have the shift linkage checked to see if it can be adjusted. The neutral adjust switch may be out of adjustment or malfunctioning. It could be a number of problems but I would take it to an expert you trust because it may be something simple and they will tell you that you need your transmission rebuilt.

How hard is it to take out the transmission on a 1996 chevy cavalier

It can be very time consuming even for a proficient mechanic. And I believe that's a front wheel it's quite complex. It's not like rear wheel drive where you jack up the car, remove the drive shaft, pull the linkage, disconnect the fluid lines, remove the bolts on the bell housing and converter, drop the cross member and out it comes.

Where socket goes on the bolt is stripped. need to remove?

You can try this if you're brave enough.........find a socket smaller then the one you used originally to strip the head....using a hammer...pound the new socket down on the bolt head.....or you can go to yoru favorite parts store, and buy a set of EZ OUTS, or EZ OFFS....they do about the smae thing but you won't destroy the socket taking hte bolt out.

Hope this helps you
