If I am not mistaken, certain GM 4 cyl engines used a two piece thermostat housing. one side is the adapter for the engine, then the thermostat sits in the adapter, then the thermostat housing sits on top of it followed by the hose? If I am not mistaken!

Is the gentleman said before I got the same car no thermostat in my car and we're the last gentleman said it goes right there so too poor thing he's right but that that thermostat Falls up in that house and just like my buddy said first of all
