With motor cold, follow the top radiator hose to motor,there will be housing at that end of hose close to motor.remove the 2 bolts @ remove the thermostat housing. remember which way you remove the thermostat from that housing, replace with your new one and reverse these directions to put back together. i would also recommend a new gasket with new thremostat.a little rtv or some people call it blue glue might also be needed.when removing the thermostat from housing you may have to remove the top hose also.befor you start, remember fluid will come out of hose and the housing, be prepared with something to catch that fluid.

as you face the engine the thermostat bell is on the right (drivers side) Follow the radiatoe hose. Remove the two bolts and raise the bell still attatched to the hose. the thermostat is there with the rubber seal. You can gently pry the thermostat out with a screwdriver or something similar. Put in new thermostat be sure it is the same as the old one, and then replace or change the seal (be sure it is the smae size and thickness as the old one as I got the wrong size from Napa) Then replace the bell, and tighten, but not over tighten. I hope this helps!

follow the upper rad. hose from the rad. to the other end. It should be under the throttle body. I'm a certified Master Tec and these are not easy to do.

check the coolant level fiirst...if that is low it wont give you any heat.....to change the thermostat you have to follow the top radiator hose to the engine.at the send of it you will see a clamp take it loose...then you will see the thermostat housing its held in place by 2 bolts . once you remove them you have the thermostat....make sure you clean all the old gasket material off both the housing and mount.also make sure you get a new gasket.

SOURCE: i ran a scanner on my 2002 pontiac grand prix 3100

A code “multiple misfire” may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

•Faulty spark plugs or wires
•Faulty coil (pack)
•Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
•Faulty fuel injector(s)
•Burned exhaust valve
•Faulty catalytic converter(s)
•Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages
•Faulty camshaft position sensor
•Defective computer

If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

How hard is it to change the thermostat on a 2002 grand am v6?


Not hard at all. Looking at the vehicle on the right side you should see the upper radiator hose, connected to it you should have what they call the "thermostat housing" remove it and the thermostat should be there. Replace it and the seal. A 6 min fix
