Question about 1996 Pontiac Sunfire
Follow the upper radiator hose to the top of the engine. There should be a cast housing with two bolts at the end where the hose is attached. Remove the two bolts and gently pry up the housing off the engine. Once removed, you will see the thermostat and this can easily be removed with a needle nosed pliers. Clean the housing and intake manifold of all old gasket material as this is necessary for proper sealing of new gasket. Next, insert new thermostat. Now you will be ready to put the gasket on after you have coated both sides with a gasket sealent. Any kind of heat treated rtv will work. Tighten both bolts equally being careful not to crank down too hard on these bolts as the housing is generally made of an aluminum cast alloy and will crack under extreme tightening.
