How to change a thermostat on a GM 3800, the fastest way
This is the way I like to change the thermostats on the 3.8 liter engines.
The main difference is how I manage getting the cooling system "drained" to
swap it out. It saves quite a bit of time.
This applies to any GM 3.8 L / 3800 Series I II III (One, Two, or Three) 1,
2, or 3.
L36, L26, L67, L32
Common vehicles with the 3800:
Pontiac: Grand Prix, Bonneville, Firebird
Chevy/Chevrolet: Impala, Monte Carlo, Camaro
Buick: Regal, LeSabre, Park Ave, Century, Riviera, Reatta

Talking about the Buick 231/3.8L
Most everyone is familiar with the Buick 3800 and it's 3300 and 3.0L
But before it was a modern FWD engine, it was a RWD engine that was
developed way back in 1962 using the same architecture as the aluminum 215
V8 but in iron and with a different bore/stroke.
The rest, as they say, is history.
