CHEVY THERMOSTAT

2002 Chevrolet Cavalier

Engine Cooling problem
2002 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

How do I change the thermostat on a 2002 cavalier? The car is overheating, smoking, the air conditioner does not work when in idle, leaking coolant.

Engine size ????
Pressure test the coolant system and the cap for leaks
repair any leaks before proceeding
check coolant fan operation

thermostat is under manifold in the back by the water pump
