I didn't mention it specifically, but my car is an LT v6. I was shocked when quoted so much labor. My experience with other cars is that the thermostat is front and center on top of the engine. Not so for the LLT. Apparently it is in the BACK on the passenger side and is pretty well covered. Also the hose that goes to it is a rigid pipe, I think. I suspect all you guys with the "it's real easy" comments have V8s with a more traditional setup for the cooling system. : )

No, the coolant has not been changed or flushed since the car was new. It was already on my to-do list to get it flushed. I don't see how air can have gotten into the system.

Can anyone who has done this work on an LLT chime in about this job? Thanks!
