Follow the upper radiator hose to where it hooks on the engine. The hose is hooked to the thermostat housing and the thermostat is inside. One precaution to take when replacing the housing is not to overtighten the retaining bolts. Overtightening can crack the housing and cause it to leak coolant. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Engine should be cool

Catch leaking anti-freeze from thermostat housing hose when disconnected (if any)

Good idea to always disconnect negative battery cable anytime working under hood for extended period

Clean old gasket of block

These come to mind.

Hi James:
The hose (or line) will be threaded on at each end. Just unscrew the couplings and install the replacement. Then top up the fluid.

Where is the thermastat in a 2004 Pontiac grandprix


On the 3.4 and 3.8 liter engines follow the upper hose to the metal housing bolted to the engine. The thermostat will be under that housing. The 3.8 is pretty simple to replace. Remove the two bolts that hold the housing to the engine and remove the housing. The 3.4 is a little more involved. I can post some tips if needed. Just let me know.

How to change a thermostat in a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix


You may need to drain a little of the antifreeze to get level below the thermostat level. Make sure you have something to catch the antifreeze and discard it properly.
Follow the water outlet from the radiator and where it goes into the intake manifold. Remove the two bolts one on each side to remove the thermostat housing. It is not necessary to take the hose off of the the housing. Remove the thermostat and make sure that both surfaces that meet when you put back together are clean and free of debris. You should get the gasket along with a new thermostat and replace both. Make sure you only use DEXCOOL to replace any antifreeze that was lost.

How hard is it to replace thermostat on 3.4 liter pontiac grand am gt


it is a little bit tricky, but certainly do-able. you need to remove the throttle body to gain access to the thermostat housing, so make sure you buy a new throttle body gasket. to take this job on, you will need a few flex sockets and some extensions. make sure you are well equipped before starting this job. good luck!

I need to know where the thermostat is located in a 2000 pontiac grand am. 6 cyl. my heater no longer works and the car registers hot


I am not familar with your engine but follow your upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine block. This is usually the thermostat housing. Another option is to buy a Haynes manual for your vehicle. cost about $20 at autozone

Sounds like you have a slight bit of air still left in the system.There are 2 bleeders 1 on the t-stat housing and 1 over the water pump housing.Try bleeding again.
