Just did one last week on my 95 Lumina.It is not for the faint hearted! If you follow the upper radiator hose back to the block you will find the thermostat housing. It is held in place by two bolts. The one is difficult to remove ........the other is very difficult! Remove the hose clamp and upper hose and do your mormal drain down of the radiator. The petcock is on the driver side of radiator.The housing is very tight to the exhaust crossover pipe but you CAN remove the housing without removing the pipe if you are patient. To reinstall you will probably have to loosen the fuel injection box which is right above the housing. I also removed the air filter lid and intake hose. Hope this is helpful........... good luck and be patient!
Behind the dang motor
i wnt to know how to dis-assemble a transmission in a 1996 chevy lumina
Its located under the throttle body or follow the upper radiator hose til it hits a semi round housing. There is 2 bolts to remove it. First you have to drain the radiator fluid of course. I am changing the thermostat right now on my 2001 Chevy lumina and I see I will have to also remove the throttle body to get to the thermostat housing
get your mama to do it
it doesn't have one
follow the top radiator hose to locate the thermostat housing, remove the hose from the housing then unbolt the housing. remove and replace the thermostat and rebolt the housing to the motor, replace the hose The housing is made of cheap metal and should be replaced. It is important to "seat" the thermostat properly. Also, it is much easier to replace and remove the thermostat housing if you first remove the timing belt housing.
remove the 2 bolts andharness
Take off the thermostat housing which is located right where the top radiator hose clamps to the motor. thermostat will come right out. be sure to install the new one in the same way you take the old one out.
Unless the housing is damaged, there is no reason to replace it. Just replace the gasket.
what is the spark plug gap for a 98 Chevy lumina sedan 3.1Liter engine
place the thermostat with the pointed facing out-ward away for the motor.
replace anti-freeze, replace thermostat
follow the top radiator hose to the engine, remove it then remove the thermostat housing, remove the thermostat and replace it
Replacing the thermostat on a 1996 Grand Marquis is not very hard. First, follow the upper radiator hose to find the thermostat. Then disconnect the hose and drain it. After the hose is drained, remove the bolts holing the thermostat housing in place. Take the old thermostat out and replace with a new one.
I would start with checking your thermostat and thermostat housing. See if its regulating. If it is not replace the thermostat.
The fuse box is on the passenger side of the dash board open the passenger side door and you will see it on the side
i do believe that the camshaft sensor on the 3100 v6 motor is on the passeger side of the motor underneath the intake manifold and under the powersteering pump. i needed to replace the one on my 1996 lumina with that same motor and that's where i fould it. hope this helps.
Follow the top radator hose to where it connects to the motor. On my 97 stratus you follow the top hose which leads to peice where the radiator cap turns on, take out the 2 bolts and underneath is your thermostat.
1) located right above the battery. 2)on the passenager side when you open the door its on the side of the dash
yes as long as it is the same size 3.1 or so on and you will have to change the one exhaust manifold i know that for sure because i just put a 96 3.1 liter into a 97 lumina.
No , there is a rubber ring that goes around the edge of the thermostat
