The thermostat is located in the water pump next to the 2 heater hoses. I think you have to buy the housing to get a thermostat. Not serviced seperately.

SOURCE: Radiator Cooling fans pull or push air (93 Chevy Lumina 3.1 L) ?

A radiator fan is designed to pull air to pull air through the radiator to help cool it, while blowing the air on back across the engine to try to assist once again at keeping the unit running cool as to not over heat.

SOURCE: 1999 chevy cavalier keeps overheating,

these cars are notorious for that.It needs to be "burped" when your car is cold then open the resivoir(coolant).Start the car .As it warms you will notice the tank level will rise.Do not let it boil over!! when it starts to get warm then turn the car off and watch for bubbles in the resivior.add more coolant as the bubbles come out .repeat until no more bubbles come up.The problem with these cars is that an air pocket forms in the water pump.

SOURCE: My 1997 Chevy Lumina Runs Hot, replaced thermostat

like snownbird33 said, first you need to make sure the cooling system is burped. if all the air is'nt removed it will run hot.second make sure your cooling fans are operating, they useually want come on until it reaches around 227 degrees,or the a/c is turned on.third make sure the water pump is'nt leaking if it's a 3.1 liter or 3100 (same engine ) they are bad about the water pump leaking or the blades on the pump are corroded off or propellas are slipping on the shaft.

1998 Chevy Lumina 3.1 overheating - top radiator hose collapses on throttle, then opens up when you let off.


With the engine cold remove the radiator cap. Start the engine. Watch the coolant. If you see bubbles constantly perkulating out of the coolant than you most likely have a head gasket that has failed. If you don't see a constant perkulation of air bubbles it probably wouldn't hurt to replace the upper hose and see if the problem is resolved.

Trying to find thermostat can you help


Not Familiar with vehicle but can give you some basic info.The Thermostat could be on top or bottom of engine.It is in a bell shaped housing,follow the Hoses from the Radiator.If you get heat when the Engine shows warm and you don't overheat it's not the Thermostat.If your not getting heat check the level of coolant first.If coolant is low you wont get heat or low heat.If your overheating it could be other problems,Blown Head Gasket.Clogged Radiator,insufficient coolant.Good Luck.

Grab top radiator hose, and follow back to engine. The part the hose is clamped to is the thermostat housing.
