The thermostat is under the neck where the top radiator hose hooks to the engine. Take out the 2 bolts, then remove the neck. The thermostate is right there, just pull it out. When you go to replace it, make sure you clean both surfaces of the neck and engine first. Put in the new gasket and thermostat. Use a little silicon. Not alot. Just a little bit. Usually the thermostat is marked as this side up. If you put it in upside down, it won't work.

The ease way to locate the thermostat,fallow the upper radiator hose to the engine,where it connect,inside of that housing is the thermostat,if you notice it1s just down the exaust tube,when the engine is cold,take the hose off,there is going to come a lot of water out,remember to have somthing beneat under the car to catch the water,then take the housing off,then you are going to see the thermostat,take it off,when you are going to put the new one,notice that there is a little hole whit a pin,this one has to go on the top,and for securyti you can put a little of glue on the thermostat to holded in to the housing,that way wont fell at the moment you are instaling it,onece you are finish installig it,there is a purge in that same thermostast huosing or on a tubing just on top of the water pump,open it,so all the air comes out when you are filling the water in to the engine,close it when you see water come out at the moment that you are filling the water.

SOURCE: 1992 lumina just changed thermostat but temp gauge

that would be a problem Heater core leaks because the stupid plastic nozzles they use and hoses can crack to. Then you would have low pressure. Or if new thermostat is stuck open.

How do you change 1992 chev lumina heater core


if the coolant level is at the proper level and the thermostat is good then before you pull the heater core out you can try disconnecting the heater hoses and drain or blow out as much coolant out of the heater core then connect separate hoses to the spigots and fill the heater core with CLR and let it sit for an hour before draining then flush out with water and repeat if necessary this sometimes works and you won`t have to remove the heater core.

Engine sometimes runs very hot


did u check the radiator fluid? if its full then u might have a sticky thermostat. i had a 97 lumina and it had a plastic wheel on the water pump that broke inside. warm up the engine with the radiator cap off and see after it warms up if you have fluid movement. if you dont it could be either the thermostat or the pump. thermostat is the cheapest so try it first

Where is the thermostat on a 1992 chevelette lumina


Look towards the front of the engine compartment to where you see about a 2" black hose coming from the top on the radiator. Follow that hose to where it takes you to the top of the engine towards the front of the engine(front being the side where the belts & pulleys are. The hose goes to the top of the intake manifold. Take that hose off, take the two bolts off that hold the part the hose goes onto and between that hose barb and the engine block is your thermostat.
