It should be on the intake manifold, should also have a water hose running into it coming from the radiator, remove the hose from intake manifold and the thermostat should be right there

My 2002 buick park avenue ultra supercharged is overheating. Replaced water pump and radiator. The thermostat seems to open up. Tested spark plugs so I dont think its a head gasket issue. Any ideas?

I don't know what else would cause this overheat with the new parts you have installed other than a leaking (combustion gases getting into cooling system) head gasket

What would make a 2000 buick park avenue over heat and shut off

over heating is from ---low coolant level--blocked radiator cores--fins missing from radiator cores--thermostat not opening--coolant temperature sensor not operating the cooling fan-- driving to fast and not engaging over drive ---if the fan is mechanical and there is a viscous fan hub then the hub is faulty ( overheating at lights but cools down on moving)-- faulty radiator cap--- air in cooling system--run fault codes to check for problems with mixture and timing---low tyre pressures at speed ---over loading--pulling a heavy trailer ---hilly conditions

Perhaps some where in that list you will find an answer to your question

How to change a voltage regulator for 95 Buick Park Avenue

The voltage regulator is built in to the alternator. It's better to replace the whole alternator then to just replace the regulator. The regulator and other parts like the bearing all have about the same amount of life time, unless the battery is weak which can put extra taxes on the regulator. Good luck and hope this helps.

1997 buick park avenue does the odometer turn over

you can reset these odometers and it will go back to 0 after 999,999 miles but if you find a car running after that many miles id be highly surprised anywy the procedure isnt easy and it carries high penalties , most individual car sellers cant do it and most large dealers wont because of the illegalities involved
