Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
My husband replaced the radiator (had a crack in it) and the fan motor but the car is still overheating. He wants to check and replace the thermostat but isn't exactly sure where it is located. Is there somewhere I can search to find a picture?
The thermostat is located at the end of the top radiator hose where it connects to the engine. There is a thermostat housing there.
1. drain enough coolant to make the water level below the thermostat height.
2, Remove the two bolts that hold the housing to the engine.
3. remove the thermostat and scrape off the old gasket and sealant from the housing and manifold.
4. install new thermostat (point side UP)
5, use Permatex #2 non-hardening gasket sealant ($3 AutoZone)
More info to follow in my comments...
