How do you replace the thermostat located on a 1985 Buick Electra?
It is at the engine end of the upper rad hose. Remove the housing and there it is. When replacing it make sure the spring goes toward the engine/
U unbolt the Housing where the upper Radiator hose Mountes 2 the engine.MAKE SURE U get the CORRECT Degree thermostat 4 that model.Clean the gasket surfaces (if a O-Ring isn't used) get a NEW gasket & make SURE U PUT the NEW Thermostat in the CORRECT way-IF U don't U WILL FRY the ENGINE bcause of a REVERSED thermostat.
I have a 93 buick skylark and i cant find the thermostat on the da*n thing.. can anyone explain to me on how to change it??? Follow the hose to the top of the engine where it ends. The thermostat is under the thing where the hose is attached. There are two bolts holding it down. Also, get a Chilton's or Haynes manual from Amazon. They have the procedure and the books are cheap.
Should be located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose housing. Drain about 1 gallon of coolant Remove housing Make note how thermostat is installed Clean surfaces well Replace thermostat and gasket Re-fill radiator Start engine and check for leaks Run engine to normal operating temperature with heater on Check coolant level
It is located under the thermostat housing. Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. This is the thermostat housing. Remove the 2 bolts and pull housing off motor (motor should be cold when doing this). clean off gasket surfaces & replace thermostat. Bolt housing back on, open radiator, top off with coolant.
there are 2 large black hoses that come off of your radiator. the one located higher on the radiator (upper radiator hose) goes from your radiator to the thermostat housing. the thermostat housing is a metal tube that is bolted to the engine. the thermostat is located inside of the housing and can be accessed by removing the bolts
