Where is the thermostat located in a 1996 buick skylark 3.1 L


Check this on 3.1L and 3.3L Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system to a level below the thermostat housing.
  3. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
  4. Disconnect the surge tank line from the thermostat housing.
  5. Remove thermostat housing-to-intake manifold attaching bolt and nut, then remove the housing.
  6. Remove the thermostat.

To install:
  1. Clean all gasket surfaces completely.
  2. Insert the thermostat in the intake manifold.
  3. Attach the thermostat housing to the intake manifold.
  4. Install the mounting bolt and nut. Tighten to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm) for the 3.1L engine. For the 3.3L engine, tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  5. Install the air cleaner assembly.
  6. Connect the surge tank line to thermostat housing.
  7. Refill the cooling system.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable, remove the radiator cap, then start the engine. Allow the engine to run with radiator cap removed, until the upper radiator hose becomes hot (thermostat open). With the engine idling, add coolant to the radiator until the level is up to the bottom of the filler neck.
  9. Install the radiator cap, making sure the arrows line up with the overflow tube.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Engine mount location for a 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera


This is a 4 cyl transverse mounted engine, and it has 3 engine mounts one in front and one on the subframe in the backside of the block and another holds the transaxel. If you have some poping sounds when starting or hard shifing of the gears, then one or more may need replacing.

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.

1995 Buick skylark overheating


there could be several resons for the overheating:


1. water pump doesn't circulate properly

2. Bad thermostst

3. fan clutch/radiator fan are non operative

4. relay is bad

5. clogged system

6. clogged radiator

to check on the the specific problem first power wash the radiator to remove bugs and road grime. they block the air from flowing over the fins and coil of the radiator thus not allowing the heat to disapate from the coolant. next install the good thermostat and make sure the spring part of the thermostat is facing down.next fill the radiator with coolant all the way up to the neck of the radiator and leave the cap off. next turn your heat setting to max fan and max heat temp. start the vehicle let the vehicle heat up and keep watch for the the flow of coolant soon as it goes down you should feel the upper radiator hose get real hot this indicates that the thermostat is working. now if you have a fan clutch for a conventional rear drive vehicle once the temp reaches 180 degrees the fan should no longer free spin it should start spinning faster if it is working like it should. if you have a transverse mounted engine for front wheel drive you will have a fan unit mounted to the radiator. these should be spinning when the engine reaches temp of 180 degrees. If they are not open the junction box and located the fan relay. switch out the relay with another one( I use the a/c clutch relay)if the fans kick on it's the relay that is bad, if it doesn't then either it's the fan unit itself or the temp sensor on the fan unit.now after you have done all these checks and everything is in order check the hoses going to the heater core at the fire wall they should be hot to the touch if they are not you have a clog at the by-pass of the water pump or manifold inlet.if the hoses are hot and you still have no heat then it's a bad valve inside the cab near the heatercore or a defective climate control module. check the fuse first to see that it is good.after the engine has been running a while the level of coolant should have gone down and then refill to proper level and replace cap after all of this if you still don't have heat and it overheats you have a bad water pump.... please rate this thanks
