The plastic housing on the driver side top of the engine that bolts to the head is the water outlet housing. The thermostat is under the car where the metal cooling pipe bolts to the water pump housing.

The metal tube that goes into the housing has an o-ring that seals it into the housing. The tube is held in place with a couple of bolts. Remove them and remove the tube. There should be signs of an o-ring on the tube. Sometimes you have to replace the housing in order to get them to seal up

Where is the thermostat on 1990 buick skylark 3.3

On your cooling system you are going to have 2 hoses the upper hose on the top of the radiator and a return hose that's on the bottom of the radiator.If you follow the upper hose it should be connected to a small housing that the hose is connected to.Remove the hose and housing which will expose the thermostat.

Cant find thermastac

If you cant find the thermostat I am assuming this is a 4cylinder, which is down in the back of the engine where that metal tube runs under the engine up the back if you were to be able to look down past the exhaust manifold it would be straight down and more towards the passenger side below the water pump. If its a v6 you will see the housing where the exhaust crossover pipe goes from the front to the back right down from the throttlebody.

Wife,s 97 buick skylark, 2.4 L., leaking water. need help!!!

I had the same problem a month ago. I thought it was the thermostat, which sits inside the lower water feed tube that runs from the radiator, under the car and up between the engine and trans axle to the thermostat housing and water-inlet housing attached to the water pump. I replaced it and it kept leaking. So I got under the car with a mirror and a light and found that it was leaking from a weep hole in the water pump. This happens when the water pump seal is bad. to replace the water pump you nearly have to take apart the back of the engine and the timing chain cover. The waterpump is mounted at the bottom of the back of the engine and is turned by the timimng chain. It took me two days to fix, and it was not easy. There are a couple of sites that have info, which helped me. It's about a $600 - $900 job if you take it to a repair shop.
