For 2002 Buick Century 3.1L SFI OHV 6cyl

Fig. The thermostat on this 3.1L is mounted horizontally and uses an offset housing/water outlet

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system into a suitable container, to a level below the thermostat.
  3. It is usually possible to leave the radiator hose attached and simply remove the thermostat housing (also called a water outlet) and flex the radiator hose enough to service the thermostat. It is good practice, however, to remove the radiator hose so the thermostat housing can be given a thorough cleaning. Debris on the thermostat housing sealing surface can cause leaks.
  4. Some applications may have electrical connections to sensors which mount in the thermostat housing. Use care when detaching these connectors.
  5. Unfasten the thermostat housing bolts and remove the housing.
  6. Remove the thermostat by simply pulling out. Discard the gasket.
To install:
  1. Clean all parts well. Make sure the sealing surfaces on both the thermostat housing gasket flange and the intake manifold are clean and free of corrosion damage. It is good practice to run a thread cutting tap or a clean bolt into the threaded holes in the manifold to clean out old sealer and dirt. The threads should be clean so the thermostat cover clamps the gasket evenly at assembly.
  2. Position the thermostat in the intake manifold. Make sure it is seated.
  3. Position a new gasket over the thermostat. If no gasket is used, apply a 0.125 in. (3mm) bead of RTV sealer to the thermostat housing and install the housing. Lightly lubricate the bolts with clean engine oil. Torque to 18-20 ft. lbs. (23-27 Nm).
  4. If removed, attach the radiator hose to the thermostat housing.
  5. Refill the engine with the proper mix of DEX-COOL®and water. Connect the negative battery cable, start the engine and check for leaks.

Good luck (remember to rate this answer).

SOURCE: need to replace the thermostat on my 2002 buick la

The thermostat is normally located in the aluminium elbow that the top radiator hose connects to. The elbow is usually held down by two bolts and it is only necessary to remove these to replace the thermostat. It may not be necessary to remove any hoses. Take care that the new thermostat is correctly located in its recess and the old gasketing has been completely removed and that the new gasket has a smear of gasket cement on it. While tightening the bolts, make sure that the elbow is seating evenly and not catching on the edge of the thermostat or you could crack the elbow.

I have a 2003 buick redevous 3.4 the tensionor went out and had to replace the idler pulleys,since i have done that my belt keeps tracking half way off the crank pulley any sugestions


This sounds like a bad crank pulley or the wrong pulley was installed or installed incorrect, you will need to remove the belt and check the alignment of the pulleys, check the tensioner also. most times a bad tensioner will cause this problem. the alignment will be of a little, it doesnt take much to have belt ride off the pulley, take a good look and double check pulleys that were replaced. good day.

Locate the thermostat


The thermostat is in the metal housing of the upper radiator hose, bolted onto the intake plenum in front of the throttle body. Commonly referred to as the "coolant elbow" on this engine. There is a bleed valve on top of it.
