The thermostat is just under the intake plenum.Drain the coolant then just have to lift it up enough to remove the thermostat housing and thermostat.Remove the radiator hose from the coolant pipe and the coolant pipe lift bracket bolt.Rotate the oil level indicator and tube away from pipe.Remove the thermostat extension pipe and make sure to replace the o-ring seals from the coolant pipe.You should be able to get to the thermostat to replace it now.Reverse procedure.Hope this helps.Good luck.Let me know if you need any more help.

We just changed the radiator water of a Saturn View 2003 and now the car is overheating. Is there a Bleeder Plug on this car?


I am not one hundred percent positive there is one but look near the thermostat housing and see if there is a metal tube coming off of it on the tube you will see a small bleeder screw possibly 8mm. Open the screw and start the car with the heater on high watch for solid water to come out of the screw.

My dad needs to change the thermostat in my 2003 saturn vue AWD


Check "maintenance" Or other headings that are similar. Using a Haynes manual? Sometimes their stuff is all over the book and not where you'd expect it to be. To relieve fuel pressure find if you have a schrade valve (looks like a tire valve) under a cap on the fuel rail. Put a rag under it and cover the top so it does not spray.
Generally to keep system from becoming air bound, fill with engine running and heater on high, allow for thermostat to open and top off when level drops.
