That question would be a whole lot easier to answer if you were to mention YEAR, MAKE, MODEL and ENGINE SIZE of the vehicle you want to change the thermostat in.

What temp does a 96 camaro v6 run at?

That would depend on the thermostat. If it's an 180 degree'll run at 180. Since it's a '96 I'd venture a guess that it has probably been changed at least once. Maybe not. Soooo, It should probably run right around there if the thermostat is a factory equivalent. I hope that helps. You may be able to call an auto parts store and ask what the options are for the thermostat and base it on their answers. Thanks for using Fixya, and please rate any answers you receive and leave a testimonial.

Where does the thermostat belong? Please be

The upper radiator hose - follow it back to the engine block.
Where it connects is a housing.
Inside this housing (removing the bolts) is the thermostat.

Hello angelaschame: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. After opening the hood remove the top plastic engine shield. Follow the top radiator hose back to the engine. Remove the two bolts at the housing. Lift off the housing and you will see the thermostat. Reverse the procedure to install a new thermostat. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of your answer as this helps insure you received the information you asked for. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the three bolts and position the A/C compressor aside.
  4. Remove the radiator hose clamp from the thermostat housing.
  5. Remove the radiator hose from the thermostat housing.
  6. Remove the three bolts and the thermostat housing.
  7. Remove the thermostat and the O-ring from the thermostat housing.
  8. Clean any corrosion or debris from the thermostat housing.
  9. Clean the mating surfaces.
  10. Inspect the thermostat.

To install:

WARNING Position the air bleed valve on the thermostat toward the top of the engine.
  1. Install the thermostat in the described position to the cylinder head.
  2. Install a new thermostat O-ring.
  3. Install the thermostat housing.
  4. Secure the thermostat housing with three bolts and tighten to 12 ft. lbs. (16 Nm).
  5. Install the A/C compressor and secure with three bolts. Tighten the A/C compressor bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm).
  6. Install the radiator hose and clamp to the thermostat housing.
  7. Fill the radiator with approved coolant.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.
  9. Start the engine.
  10. Allow the coolant to attain operating temperature (both hoses feel warm and the coolant is flowing through the radiator).
  11. Check for leaks in the cooling system.
  12. Shut off the engine.
  13. Install the radiator cap.

Short answer is that it is located in the housing that the TOP radiator hose is attached to at the engine block.

Thermostat will not open

If the top radiator hose is not getting hot you know the coolant is not passing the thermostat. The last gentleman to answer you is probably correct. The thermostat must face the correct direction for the hot water to open the thermostat.
