What is a thermostat light?
Hi. I replaced my thermostat twice - here is a word of caution: only use the thermostat from the Chevy dealership. I bought one from Autozone and it kept giving me the check engine light because the temp did not get high enough. I replaced it with the Chevy one and it worked perfectly from that point on - no more check engine light.As for the labor time, I'd suggest investing in a Chilton book that shows you how to do it. You have to remove the alternator in order to get to the thermostat (why did they put the thermostat on the bottom of the engine!?!?!) All in all it took me about 3 hours the first time and about 2 1/2 the second time - and I am just your average guy that doesn't mind getting his hands dirty in my garage.Hope that helps!
Many vehicles will trigger a check engine code if the engine never reaches its designated operating temperature (Such as if a thermostat was stuck open). However, there are hundreds of other reasons a check engine light can come on. Putting in a thermostat solely because the check engine light came on is a very bad idea. Any time that light comes on you should have the vehicle scanned by a trained proffessional (The guy at Napa doesn't count). A good service technician can use the information given by the engine computer to determine what is wrong with the vehicle.
This is too cool if the engine had been running for awhile. Thermostat is stuck open which causes the system to stay in closed loop, thus setting the check engine light. Drain and flush the radiator, and replace the thermostat. You may have the have the Check Engine Light reset with an OBD2 scan tool. Ask an auto parts store to reset it after selling you the thermostat and antifreeze for the repair.
