New stat from Advance stuck & truck heated up. Bought another Advance 195 degree stat. Advance can't get (or even order) a stat lower in temp. than 195 degrees for my 4.3L 2003 Chevy S-10. Second stat bought from Advance is supposed to be 195 degrees but runs at 220-235 degrees (with new water pump, radiator, cylinder heads, correct timing, etc. on truck). Ordered a 185 degree stat else where that now runs 190-195 degrees in my truck, & that fixed the higher engine temp. my truck was running. 185 degree stat DID lower engine running temp. & DID NOT effect fuel mileage, heater, or truck's computer. Less engine heat = longer oil & engine life. If I can get a 185 degree thermastat, surely you can get & stock one Advance????

                      A:

                      Hi Fozzie, glad to help! Follow the top radiator hose on your GMC Safari back to the engine. The radiator hose connects directly to the thermostat housing. Pull the two bolts that hold the housing then you'll need to work at it to get the housing off since it would be stuck on with gasket sealer.

                      A:

                      Hi Rod, glad to assist you! Location and instructions of thermostat: Locate the thermostat intake housing by following the top radiator hose from the radiator to the point where it connects to the intake manifold of the Sonoma. The part that the hose is clamped onto is called the thermostat intake housing. To remove it, unbolt the two bolts that hold it onto the manifold and then lift up on the housing to pop it off of the manifold. Drain the radiator hose into a small clean bucket to prevent the loss of any radiator fluid and to prevent getting the fluid all over the engine. The fluid will be replaced once the job is completed. Pull the old thermostat out of the intake manifold. The thermostat is not bolted into place so it can be pulled out using your fingers. Place the new thermostat into place with the correct end facing out of the engine. The top of the thermostat will be marked. Pull the old gasket off of the intake manifold. You may need to use a razor blade to scrape it off. Place a bead of RTV silicone maker onto the bottom edge of the thermostat intake housing. This will act as the new seal/gasket for the Sonoma. Place the thermostat intake housing back onto the engine and bolt it into place. Place the radiator fluid back into the radiator via the radiator filler cap.

                  • Q:

                    I have a 2003 GMC Sonoma crewcab with the Vortec 4.3L V6 (195HP) engine. Trying to find thermostat and coolant temperature sensor locations. I followed the upper radiator hose to the engine. The radiator hose connects to a plastic tube then proceeds to a metal plate with two screws holding it to the engine. I don't see a housing as explained to me many times. Is the thermostat under the metal triangular plate with the two screws? Also then where would the coolant temp. sensor be? I think there are two different 4.3-liter engines. Mine I believe is the 195 HP engine. Hope someone can help! Thanks!

                      Your thermostat should be located right there in the front of the motor where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. A standard set of tools should contain everything you need to complete this job.
