Sustainable Poetry: xcellent vid... helps a lot...
Ira Dutary-Audia (Papo): I had flashes of Kermit the frog's face throughout the whole video.
Josh Kern: While I appreciate the effort this is by far the worst how to video on a YouTube.
Chris Krech: the dude says be careful when you "unloosen". Yes you should, because if yo unlossen the screw, you are tightening it. it night brake.
okisaru: yup , thank you for this vid. as it was the way to go. i look at a few other vid's, yet yours was the best way to go. wayyyy more room to work with. yet i didnt have to remove as much as you did. which was a plus. so thanks a lot cya
Richy Hicken: Thanks! What a pain, but the instructions helped. FYI, I had to take the bottom bolt for the thermostat housing all the way off. Otherwise, the housing would not slide off the bottom bolt while the thermostat was still in.
p3x744: Thanks for the info. Had no idea idea I'd have to take off half the damn engine to get to it so thanks for the heads up! And GM-NO thanks for you.
Jorge Lopez: thanks for the video and all the talking and explain the size of every bolt and location but you never did explain or show exactly where the thermostat is located
john smith: 3350cc V6.
BIG DADDY: you dont have to remove the throttle body at all, just remove the intake, and exhaust covers, (the aluminum heat shields) and you can get to both bolts.
Hector Sanchez: Replacing the engine expansion plug near water pump
Hector Sanchez: Tried everything on coolant line and the tower will not budge free and suggestion.....

dee jay: Great great post will be doing this as soon as I get home
Del Ferdinand: Thanks for the info. It dosn't matter what accent you have it's the invormation thats important and that you took your time to share that information!!!!!!!
meTimetraveler: make sure to have the ignition off when you disconnect/reconnect the sensors. Do not reuse gaskets. Do not remove the throttle body, remove the exhaust cross over. Squirt the studs/bolts for the cross over with liquid wrench an hour or so before you remove them.
chris credit: Man that's nuts! The engine designers should have to work on their designs. I recently heard these motors are built to last over 400k. Apparently this was achieved by allowing a little 'piston slap', which acts to minimize wear during cold starts; this explains the noise they make. Well done Canuks! (I genuinely mean that; since I myself have Canuk roots; my last name is 'Credit', as in Port Credit, just south of Toronto.
UGotMalk: great video..thanks 4 uploading
