How to replace thermostat on a 99 pontiac montana van


The thermostat is located at the driver side of the engine, under the air intake piping. All the intake stuff must be removed to get to the housing which has two bolts holding it in place. The lower bolt, located under the exhaust pipe, is a Bear to get at! Replace with an OEM part, Generic parts may not align properly for you.

THE 3 BACK PLUGS, HOW DO U CHANGE THEM


You have to take air manifold off. First disconnect battery. Remove air intake. Open throttle and take slack in cables to to slide the cables out. Remove bracket. Remove two bolts on the EGR line. There are two bolts in the back( one on each side) holding the manifold. The can be tricky to get to, not much room. A swivel socket and some extensions help. Seven bolts on top of manifold. Disconnect two sensors on left side and sensors to throttle body. Vacuum hose on right side in the back. Buy a air intake gasket and one EGR gasket. I recommend replace valve cover and oil tube seals also. You will probably find oil in the tubes. Spark plugs and wires really helped mine. The wires are tricky to get off the distributor, but I managed without removing it. I don't have big hands. Plan on a all day job.

    Need Tune up


    To access the three sparkplugs in back, the intake manifold needs to be removed. All the bolts are easily accessable. First disconnect all the sensors, label them if you like but they are all different. Next remove the air intake pipe between the air box and throttle body and other vacuum hoses attached to the intake. Now remove the throttle cable. There are 2 10mm bolts holding it on the back, firewall side. Once the bolts are out it is a simple matter to remove the cable from the throttle body by just bringing the now slack cable in line with the slot on the semi circular cable guide and out it comes. There are 7 bolts in the middle and 5 or 6 bolts on the firewall side, 2 hold on the EGR pipe and the 3 or 4 others hold the intake, a small rachet or box end wrench works well for these. Once all the bolts are out, the intake should be loose and once the vacuum lines for the egr valve are disconnected the intake should lift off easily allowing easy access to the 3 spark plugs on the rear bank of cylinders. Once changed, just reverse the process to reinstall the intake. The gasket between the 2 halves should ideally be replaced.

    Need detailed how-to--but only for replacing rear 3 plugs on V6 hyundai sonata 2001. There are lots things connected to intake manifold, which cannot be lifted high enough to prop it high enough to place...


    I just did this today. This is how I did it and by no means I am a professional. You will find two 12 mm black bolts along with 3 12 mm zinc bolts on top of manifold these need to be taken out. Next on the left hand backside you will see a ground wire that needs disconnect. Right by this connection you will see another 12mm black bolt on the back side this bolts need taken out. there are two more of these bolts going across the back that holds a wire harness as well as the intake manifold. Next, I took of the flex pipe from air filter and disconnected the wire harness (gray and black) I believe go the air flow meter. this will help you get to the left side back bolt. the middle back bolt is right under the trottle cable brackets. I moved my cables being carefully not to move the 12 mm nuts to much. Next I took the bracket off which gave me room to get to the bolt. The manifold should be free to move now. be carefull and gentle when moving to look for any connection that might impede moving the manifold to the right side(brake fluid tank side) this will give you enough room to change all three plugs. Took me a couple of hours to do.
