We just bought my daughter a 2000 Buick Century and the low coolant light comes on, and it overheats.....even when it has coolant.  We want to replace the thermostat WHERE IS IT?

Thanks!

the engine size would help... but most likely it is a 3.1L... if it is a 3.1 it is where the exhaust manifold from the front of the engine goes over the transmission to meet up with the back... it can be very hard to spot... but its there... just fallow the rad hose... i added a very vague diagram... but it may help...

I'd look for the leak first before replacing any parts,that thermostat is not easy to change..

It sounds like the cooling system needs to be bled.
