Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5929960-s_thermostat . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

On the 3 liter engine, the thermostat is at the end of the upper radiator hose.

On the DOHC engines, it is at the end of the lower radiator hose.

If you have the 3.4 liter DOCH engine, you have to take the battery, power box, and battery tray out to get at it.

see pictures

Hi im trying to find out if my grand prix has a thermostat .not sure if it does i thought maybe it might be built in


all vehicles have thermostats, the location differs from vehicle to vehicle, looking up the information specific to your car will help, using the internet or shop manuals to find the year of car, engine, transmission, and then finding an exploded diagram of your motor will help you find the thermostat on your car, but be careful, some thermostats are very hard to replace

Please tell me where locate the theromostat in


The thermostat is located inside the thermostat housing. To find it follow the upper radiator hose to the engine block.
Depending what size of engine you have the location is different.
The thermostat on this vehicle's (the Envoy & Trailblazer are essentially the same vehicle) In-line 6 cylinder engine is on the driver's side of the engine, below & behind the alternator.
If you have a V8 cylinder engine is in front of engine see the picture. Item 303 thermostat housing, 305 thermostat, and 304 thermostat gasket.

Where is the thermostat for 1995 toyota camry v6 located


the thermostat is located driver's side of the vehicle. Follow the upper radiator hose to its end to a water outlet housing. the thermostat is in the outlet. take off the air flter lid and hose and it is easier to get to. take the hose off and the metal line to the housing. the other part of the housing is holding the thermostat. it is held with two 10 mm bolts. good luck.
