Location of thermostat in 1997 chevy luminia 3.1 liter engine


The thermostat is located in the thermostat housing which is on the intake manifold under the throttle body (drivers side) to replace it, your going to have to remove the heat shield to the exhaust crossover and you can remove the two bolts that hold the thermostat in place with the right extension and swivel.
Note you only have to remove one bolt and looses the other one, the housing has a slot cutout to slide it out. Good luck and be safe.
Thank you for suing fixya and here are two links to the type of engine used in your Lumina.

Where is the location of the thermostat on a 1997 Nissan XE 2.4 Liter engine? Is it top or bottom hose? It sure would be nice to find a free download of the engine's diagrahm without me having to buy a...


It's the bottom hose. I just changed mine this past weekend. Take the power steering pump bracket loose and fold the power steering pump back. Can get to the lower hose and thermostat housing then. Make sure to bleed the air out of the system when starting the truck after replacement of thermostat. The bleeder valve is a bolt on the housing where the upper hose attaches.

Need to replace thermostat on 2005 Chevy 2500HD 4x4


The thermostat is located in the water pump next to the 2 heater hoses. I think you have to buy the housing to get a thermostat. Not serviced seperately.

Remove fan from water pump on a 1997 Ford F150 4.2 Liter


There is a special tool that is required to hold the fan clutch. Then the fan screws out of the clutch. The tool can be bought or rented at your friendly parts store like autozone, etc. It will look something like this:  http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Clutch-Water-Pulley-Holding/dp/B000RT924E

Thermostat


If it's a 3.1 liter V-6, the thermostat is located under the air intake where the water hose enters the intake manifold. That would be the driver's side or backside of the transversely mounted engine.
