This is a 97 Chev Malibu. I thought most thermostats were by the radiator – why should it take 2 hours worth of labor plus the cost of the part to replace this? I remember older cars growing up that my Dad would pop a thermostat in within 15-20 minutes. I can’t believe that even on the newer model cars that you could move a thermostat that much that it would be so damn hard to get to? Or is my mechanic full of crap?
