Remove the air filter and the air intake hose. remove the throttle body from the intake manifold. then take the two bolts loose that hold the thermostat housing to the engine block. then remove the thermostat.NOTE: make sure the engine is cool because you'll be working around the exhaust crossover pipe.

check the coolant level fiirst...if that is low it wont give you any heat.....to change the thermostat you have to follow the top radiator hose to the engine.at the send of it you will see a clamp take it loose...then you will see the thermostat housing its held in place by 2 bolts . once you remove them you have the thermostat....make sure you clean all the old gasket material off both the housing and mount.also make sure you get a new gasket.

Yes, it can be removed and run without the thermostat. However, your gas mileage will suffer and the heater may not work very well.

I believe the Montana has a 3.4 Liter V6 Engine.
This thermostat is located under the exhaust "crossover" pipe that runs between both the front and rear cylinder heads. Divers side.
Remove the heat shields (10mm bolts) and then the nuts on the exhaust studs. (6 total)
Two bolts hold the T stat housing to the intake.

My 2002 Pontiac Montana gets to hot in a short distance. I don't know what it is I have an idea it's either the thermostat or a blown head gasket not sure which one. So which one is it?


You would need to figure out if the thermostat is stuck closed, or not.
Most mechanics would either replace it or take it out and run the engine without it as a test. If the engine still overheats with the thermostat out, it could be a faulty water pump, restriction in the radiator, or other problems.
A blown head gasket should leak coolant out on the ground or into the engine.

2002 pontiac montana overheats


i would 1st check the thermostat, most overheating problems result from the thermostat sticking closed, and not allowing the coolant to circulate, while you are doing this, check the upper and lower radiator and heater hoses, to make sure that they are not collasping, also check the coolant temperature switch. this switch is normally located on the top of the intake manifold, most of the time, not too far from where the top radiator hose is connected. hope that this information has helped you.

2002 Pontiac Montana, No Heat, I put the temp control on


the cabel from the heat dial to the heater box behind the dash could be snaped or jamed thus not opperating the lever which operates the flap which open and closes the heat box next to the matrix. or if your coolant is brown in colour it could be your matrix is clogged with sedament and needs flushing out. or it could be your water pump not pumping coolant round your engine or it could be a knackerd thermostat i hope these will help you id start with the easyest first thermostat

I need to replace the thermostat on a 2002 pontiac montana. I have a Haynes repair manual for 2001 pontiac montana with picture location of thermostat housing but I cannot visually find it even using a...


Where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine you will find the thermostat under that housing. You must drain the radiator and remove the upper hose. Then remove the 2 bolts holding the housing in place. Make sure to pay attention to which way the thermostat is mounted, spring up or spring down.
