What will it cost to fix the thermostat on a 2003 Pontiac grand prix?
just do it yourself...takes about 7 mins no joke. all you have to do is remove the t-stat housing and its right in there. you have 4 bolts to take off (max)

Follow the large hose on the top right of the radiator back under the plastic engine cover. Thermostat is inside the metal cover at the end of the hose. Remove cover with 10mm… socket.
If you follow the top radiator hose to the top of the engine, the place it bolts up to should be your themostat. remove the hose, take the bolts out (usually two) put the new …one in with a new gasket and bolt it back together.

Mine is a 6cyl. It's located beneath the exhaust maifold(don't mess with) and throttle body(again don't mess with).Remove air transfer tube.Disconnect 2 small hoses from… black water pipe(metal) andhose at the end of black tube. From driver's side of car pull on black metal tube until it is about 4-6" away from work area. you will need 2-13mm wrenches, 4"and 7or8" and 13mm socket. This is tedious,time consuming and a cussable repair(lower bolt is tough). GM helped here by slotting this hole in thermostat housing,so when reinstalling start the bolt about 1/2 thread before installing housing. Use a GM thermostat only cause you only want to do this once. Good luck.
I had a 1998 GP which is almost identical in every respect to your 2003. The front driver's side bearing went bad and the dealer charged me about $500 total for the repair. …I wanted to do it myself but the bearing is actually an entire assembly, not the inner/outer roller bearings held in with a simple snap ring like older cars. The part alone was about $200, so I figured saving my knuckles was worth it.
Thermostat replacementI received a quote for my 2000 Grand Prix 3.6 from the Chevrolet Dealer and it was around $300.00, for drain/fill antifreeze and removal/replacement of t…hermostat. I did my own for around $25.00, cost of thermostat, gasket and antifreeze. I took some short cuts and works fine just remember you have to bleed the air from the cooling system with the little screw on the top of the thermostat housing. If not the engine will over heat and you will have an air lock in the engine cooling system and it will lock-up.
Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine. It should be in the metal housing the hose is clamped to.
The ABS light comes on when there is a problem in the system. Bad sensor, pump, etc. As far as I know the ABS uses it's own computer and is difficult or impossible (in most ca…ses) to pull codes from to find out what the exact problem is. About the only option you have is to take it to a shop to have it put on a scanner. That or start replacing parts at random. It should be fixed as soon as you can, however, when the ABS stops working you WILL NOT lose your brakes. It simply operates like a pre-ABS system.
FOLLOW THE UPPER RADIATOR HOSE TO WHERE IT MEETS THE ENGINE..GOOD LUCK ITS A PAIN TO DO!! The thermostat is located just under the exhaust manifold you will see that a metal …pipe leads from the water pump to the thermostat housing is, you have to remove two screws from where this pipe meets the housing and it is a pain to do unless you remove the exhaust manifold or have small hands.
Located in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
Answer There is none in a 97 gtp. But if u have a different model look at the D.I.C. (driver info center near the ac vents in the dash) Answer … There is a thermostat in the 97 grand prix I just changed mine! Remove the engine cover then look right in front and below the throttle body. Hint- follow the hose from the radiator. It inserts into the engine block right in front of the throttle body. There is a brass screw right on top in the middle. BG passenger side rear of the engine below the exhaust manifold.about a 3.8 hour job at the shop.
on the top, driver side of the engine. find the hose coming off the radiator and follow it to the engine. it is right where the hose connects.
You will have to replace the regulator assembly.
Where is the thermostat located on a 2004 Pontiac grand prix gt and what is needed to change out the thermostat?
just foolow the upper radiator hose as this should lead you to the thermostat . this should be located on the driver side of car on top of engine. you might have to take… plastic engine cover off. hope this helps.
INSIDE A HOUSING ON THE ENGINE END OF THE TOP RADIATOR HOSE.
Answer Follow the upper radiator hose back to the engine. It should be connected to the thermostat housing. The thermostat is under there. Take Car…e, Greg
I have a 1997 GTP and my shift lock went out. I fixed it. I pulled off the plastic shroud by my shifter. If just snaps on. I then took a rubber bumper ( thinks thick washer bu…t made of rubber) and cut it so it would open like the letter C. Then i used a big standard screw driver to open the shift lock solenoid and I jammed that bumper in there so it can not close. Was a very cheep fix. Better than the 300 bucks GM wanted. And it has lasted over a year now.
Answer if you take the cap off of the radiator it is in there Answer actually no its not. follow the top radiator hose to the engin…e. that is where your thermostat is. you will have to drain the radiator, remove the engine side of the hose and remove the thermostat housing to access it.
