Not fimiliar with commodore engineering (im from the US, we dont have those!) but follow the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine, theres the thermostat. Remove everything thats in the way of removal, swap the thermostat then reassemble. Sorry if this is to vague to help, but for some people, this would be the only clue they need to just hop into it!

Go to www.audidiy.com or www.audiworld.com (look in their Tech area), and there are full procedures on how to do it (it's the timing belt service). It's not a difficult job really, but you may need to get some specialty tools such as Torx bits to do the job.

Make sure that you get G12 coolant from VW/Audi (the pink kind) and if you have some other color in there now, flush it fully before adding the G12. You can order everything you need, including coolant, from www.ecstuning.com (I've used them many times with full satisfaction). Don't waste your money on the advertised cam locking tool - it's very expensive and wholly unnecessary. Its intent is to keep the cams from spinning, but if you position the #3 cylinder (rear passenger side) to top-dead-center on its compression stroke, the cams would have to be hit with a hammer to turn them.

The job is not difficult really. I've done many timing belts on many cars before, so I know what I'm doing overall, but the first time I did an Audi 2.8L V6, it took me a total of 5.5 hours start to finish. Many other cars (like my 300ZX) take that long just to reach the timing belt. As for how these kinds of jobs go, this is a very easy one.

Buzz me back on here or in email at dizellow@yahoo.com if you have any questions you'd like answered related to this or the rest of your car and I'll do what I can to help you out.

SOURCE: How do I replace the thermostat in a 95 chevy Beretta 3.1 v6

you need a socket and a swivel to reach it, the bottom hole in housing is slotted so you won't need to take the bolt all the way out.

What petrol can i use for 2006 VZ? ULP or E10. Please advise thanks.


Do not use E10 or any other ethanol blends in your VZ Commodore.

Use only any of the 3 other unleaded fuels available which do not contain any ethanol - regular unleaded, the 95/96 octane or the 98 octane Premium.
