I assume you have the 4.3 liter vortec V6 engine. If you have removed the housing all you have to do is pull the thermostat and gasket off and take note of how the thermostat faces up and down.

I know Auto Zone sells them. You can go to the Felpro website and look up the part number for you particular vehicle. They do not require and gasket cement and can be used more than once.
