remove fuel pump fuse and start car when it dies try to start again, no more spluttering just cranking, the fuel system is now depressurised. you can now disconnect both of the quick disconnect fuel lines at rear lower section of inlet manifold this is hard to get to some access this by removing the EGR valve so you can get your arms down there watch out for sharp edges of manifold. you dont need to take the top section of the inlet manifold off but will need new lower inlet manifold gaskets to haed.once manifold is off block all intake ports with rag or put tape over ports to stop dirt and stuff falling into ports while continuing to work on the coolant pipes below to get to thermostat.undo only 4 long centre bolts and the 4 nuts, one in each corner(no.3 in picture).
you dont need to remove throttle body but some people do.

1. Locate the thermostat housing by following the radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block. The metal cover that the hose attaches to is the Tahoe's thermostat housing.
Remove the radiator hose retention clip by manually squeezing the clip tabs together. With the tabs together, pull the hose off the thermostat housing. Drain the fluid from the hose by holding the hose in the air. The fluid will drain back into the radiator.
Remove the thermostat housing by taking off the two bolts with a boxed wrench. Lift the hosing off the engine to expose the thermostat.
Pull the old thermostat out of the Tahoe's intake manifold. Place the new one into the intake manifold with the spring-loaded end inside of the intake.
Replace the old thermostat gasket with a new one. The gasket must remain dry during the installation process.
Place the thermostat housing on top of the thermostat gasket and bolt it into place.
Squeeze the radiator hose retention clip tabs together and slide the hose back onto the thermostat housing. Let go of the tabs to secure the hose into place.
