Question about 1996-2002 Chevy Cavalier Thermostat Housing for L4 2.4L
You will need a socket or wrench set to take the small bolts out of the thermostat, You need to have something to catch any antifreeze in the heater hose as you remove usually the top heater hose. You will need a new thermostat and some gasket sealer. You might need to remove the old gasket sometimes they stick BUT BE CAREFUL do not grove the gasket area. Use a gasket scraper to remove old gasket, if you don't have one you can use a straight blade to remove it JUST BE CAREFUL not to grove housing. Put gasket sealer on one side of gasket and place on thermostat housing let dry 5 minutes. Then use sealer on the top of gasket and place thermostat on gasket let dry 20 min. Replace bolts in thermostat and replace heater hose then start car and check to see if you need to add antifreeze if you lost any. Hope that helps
