i need to replace a thermostat in a 2005 chevy colbalt,but i cant find where its located.can you plese help me.
Year : 2005
Make : Chevrolet
Make (other) : colbalt
i took the top of the motor off,which all i took off was the plastic parts on top,but still cant find it.i dont have a owners manual.
Can you give me engine size? If you are unsure, I can use the 8th digit of your VIN# XXXXX identify.
its my friends car,its at her house .i am on the phone with her ,she says its a 4 cyclinder.she says her vin number is XXXXX
Can you re-check that VIN#? The 8th digit should either be and "F" or a "P" - you have an "S" there, and there is no "S" engine code for a 2005 Cobalt.
you are right she says its 1g1ak52f857550888
Ok. Now we're good...
is the thermostat near the front of the motor or back.if i lift the hood up where do i need to start looking for it,also i got to change the coolant sensor also
It's at the rear of the motor. Follow the radiator hose from the radiator to the engine.
