WHERE IS THE THERMOSTAT?

2006 Pontiac G6

Engine Cooling problem
2006 Pontiac G6 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 80000 miles

Where do I find the thermostat on the 2.4L engine? I disconnected the upper radiator hose and it was not there. I read somewhere it's on the lower hose, but want to verify this before I go wasting any more time.

My info showed the above location for thermostat housing. If that is wrong, blame the database.

Ok I'm blaming the database then I suppose, because that does not look like a diagram of my engine at all. The upper radiator hose connects the to the front of my engine, not the top rear like it shows there. Are you sure thats for the 4 cyl? Thanks for trying, but any other ideas?

That's what MOD showed for the 2.4. I'll keep looking.

There are three G6s listed for that year. The GPT thermostat housing is shown below. I can't guarantee the database is correct. I thought MOD was one of the better ones.

That one looks more like it. If this diagram is right it's actually connected to the lower hose which will be a bitch to reach without pulling the radiator. I hope it's wrong again tho haha

Yeah, it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong, probably won't be the last. Goodluck
