How to Change the Thermostat on a 1996 Monte Carlo

    • 1). Wait for the engine to cool down completely before proceeding.

    • 2). Open the hood and locate the large coolant return hose. The hose runs from the top forward area of the engine and is secured to the thermostat housing by a screw clamp.

    • 3). Loosen and slide the screw clamp away from the thermostat housing using a flat head screwdriver, turning it counterclockwise.

    • 4). Pull the coolant hose away from the housing so that the thermostat housing can be removed.

    • 5). Loosen and remove both bolts holding the thermostat housing in place using a 3/8-inch open-end box wrench. It is best to use the box end of the wrench.

    • 6). Remove the thermostat using the flat head screwdriver by hooking it under the bridge of the thermostat and pulling upward.

    • 7). Reinstall the new thermostat by hand, placing it flush against the thermostat seat.

    • 8). Reinstall the thermostat housing bolts using the 3/8-inch open-end box wrench and turning clockwise until tight.

    • 9). Reposition the coolant hose over the thermostat housing and slide the screw clamp back into place.
