98 Lumina LTZ Thermostat
i just talked with my mechanic (dropped off the engine for my 93 SSEi) about my current issue with my LTZ. It hasn't been heating up correctly later, only getting to about 120-140 (guessing) on the temp guage. It also has been taking longer for the interior of the car to heat up. The car is the L36, and I was wondering what would be needed to replace this myself. The mechanic stated that I needed to remove an exhaust pipe to get at it properly.
Questions I have are, is this an easy, do-it-yourself job, or should I let my mechanic do it? and would a lower thermostat help and on a completely stock L36 as far as gas mileage goes? i'm not looking for performance out of it yet. And what would the cost for the Thermostat be and could I get it at a local parts store? Thanks.
