Drain about 1/4 of your radiator fluid into pan with petcock under radiator. Then follow upper radiator hose and it will lead directly to the thermostat housing. It should have about 3 bolts on it. Just pull off hose, then housing. Thermostat will pull right out. You may or may not get a gasket with new one. If not, you can use RTV silicone for $3-4 and spread a thin layer of silicone around between housing and surface, then reconnect everything. Let dry for couple hours, refill radiator while veheicle is running and make sure thermostat opens. When open, coolant level will drop and you should add more til full. Then your done.

I Can Not Find The Thermostat On My 1998 Buick Century. Any Suggestions?


Locate the upper radiator hose. Follow it to the engine. Before it meets the engine, you'll notice that its clamped to a metal housing, usually mounted with 3 ten-millimeter bolts. This is the thermostat housing. Remove when engine is cool. Thermostat is inside. Remove old thermostat and replace ensuring the rubber o-ring aroung the outside of the thermostat if equipped. Good luck.

Buick is overheating


Follow the radiator hoses from the radiator to the block. Check the upper radiator hose first. At the end of one of these hoses will be a housing to which the hose is connected. The housing is bolted to the block. The thermostat is in that housing.


Remove termostat housing bolts. Note orientation of old thermostat. Clean gasket material off housing and block. Put on new gasket, install thermostat. Replace housing, etc.

You may have to disconnect/remove other parts to get to the housing botls, maybe not.

Thermostat


Usually the replacement thermostat.

Some sockets in the rights size to remove the thermostat from the car should be on one of the big hoses going into the engine. Some come with gaskets some don't need them. You usually get one with the thermostat when you purchase it from the store. Usually a very cheap part. 15 -20 dollars max.

How hard is it to replace the thermostat on a 04 buick 3.1 V6???


Very Easy actually. All you need to do is find the water pump outlet. Should look like a cast metal elbow. Remove this elbow and the Thermostat is located inside this elbow. Replace thermostat and seal. replace and you are all done. Most work will likely be preformed under vehicle so be ready for fluids to drain. Refill to appropriate levels and your done!
