I am looking for the spot to put the thermostate


You will have to disconnect the radiator hose where the radiator cap is located. The radiator cap housing is connected to the engine by 2 10mil bolts. Take those bolts off and the thermostat is right there. I would reciommend a failsafe thermostat.

I cant find where the thermostat goes to replace it on a 2.4L engine. For a buick skylark


Very odd arrangement. You have to reach thru the exhaust manifold. I will paste instructions from Autozone.com below.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Properly drain and recover the coolant to a level below the thermostat.
  3. Unfasten the coolant inlet housing bolt, which is accessible through the exhaust manifold.

d8f2a03.jpg

Fig. Fig. 5: View of the thermostat and related components-2.4L engine

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the radiator outlet pipe stud.
  3. Remove the second coolant inlet housing bolt, then remove the coolant inlet housing.
  4. Remove the thermostat, then clean the old gasket material from the mating surfaces.

To install:
  1. Position the thermostat in its correct location, then install the coolant inlet housing using a new gasket. Tighten the retaining bolt to 19 ft. lbs. (26 Nm) on the 2.3L and 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm) on the 2.4L engine.
  2. Install the radiator outlet pipe stud.
  3. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  4. Install the coolant inlet housing bolt through the exhaust manifold.
  5. Properly fill the cooling system.
  6. 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.
  7. Install the radiator cap, making sure the arrows line up with the overflow tube.

Bad radiator


actually just unlpug all the hoses and take any thing than is on the way to remove it, then afer you replace it, some over flow bottles for the cooling systems have, a little plastic bolt by the cooling system cap have the bolt loose while you fill it with coolant and then it will remove any air trap on the cooling system then tie the bolt when system is full and place the cap on.
