SOURCE: 1996 Corsica - how to remove alternator

you have to undo the belt by lifting on the tensioner which located on the below the power steering pump you may have to remove the motor mount bolts (make sure you suport the motor use a piece of wood so you dont crack oil pan) once you remove the belt look behind the alternator, mine had a hood connected to the cowl that comes of easy unhook the two wires (one is a plug with alittle clip the other is on a bolt held on by the nut) find the bolt on the alternator towards the front of the car remove that bolt and the brace it goes into there is another little black brace that comes off the back and goes to the manifold the next bolt is towards the back it is a long bolt that goes all the way though this one is a pain to remove and put back once you have them out is should come out i had to wiggle mine some then just do it backwards to reinstall

if your having trouble seeing the drain plug, you can still drain your radiator by taking off the bottom radiator hose and let it drain into your pan.

I need to replace the old oil pump on a 1996 Corsica Chevrolet 3.1 liter engine V6 front wheel drive fuel injected Code M engine. Any surprises to replacing the oil pump?

One issue you may run into, when you go to pull down the oil pan, you need to remove the starter, there are 3 bolts directly above it. Another is you may need to improvise like I did to replace the oil pump on my 89'. The oil won't come down very easily because of the transmission pan, the a/c compressor, and the frame connecting to the radiator support. So what I did was put you car up on ramps, take down the starter, the plastic flywheel cover, and unbolt the 2 17mm bolts to the radiator support on the passenger side, then gently pry the beam down and the oil pan should be able to be removed easily.

Need to see where thermostate is located have an idea but am not sure where it is the year is 1996 corsica 2.2liter v4

GM Corsica/Beretta 1988-1996 Repair Guide
The thermostat is located inside a housing on the back of the cylinder head. It is not necessary to remove the radiator hose from the thermostat housing when removing the thermostat.

CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.


Fig. 1: Exploded view of the thermostat and housing assemblies - 2.0L and 2.2L engines


Fig. 3: On 1994 2.3L engines, the thermostat is located in the radiator outlet pipe


Fig. 4: Exploded view of the thermostat and water outlet - 2.2L and 3.1L (VIN T) engines


Fig. 5: Thermostat and coolant outlet mounting - 3.1L (VIN M) engine

I hope help you (remember rated this) Good luck.

I am looking for the heater core on a 1996 chevy corsica. Is it behind the firewall and can i access it from under the vehicle?

It is inside the vehicle towards the centre front of the floor, against the firewall and floor. If you want to remove it you will need to drain the coolant from the radiator and disconnect the 2 hoses going through the firewall. Remove the side panels from the centre console.Then comes the heater ducting and the core cover. You have very little space to work in so lots of patience is called for. And begging, followed by swearing and pleading. Once done you will have saved yourself upwards of $500 in labour costs.

1996 chevy corsica 2.2 liter engine. Coolant temp never reaches above one-quarter hot, therefore no heat. I've put in four thermostats, installed new radiator, disconnected the cooling fan, still no heat....

You may have a stopped-up heater core. It's a little radiator inside your dash; it's where the heat comes from. I don't understand why the temp gauge isn't reading any higher than that...
