Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
Take the 2 bolts on the thermostat housing out, pull up on the housing, antifreeze will go everywhere, pull the thermostat out, put the new one in, in the same position you pulled the old one out. replace gasket, put the housing back on, put bolts in, fill radiator, start the car warm it up looking for leaks and monitoring coolant level until car is up to temp. you will be able to see current in the coolant with the radiator cap off when the thermostat opens. A couple things to keep in mind. 1 coolant will expand and slowly rise out of the filler neck between open cycles of the thermostat, 2. VERY important keep the cap off the radiator while warming up the car and monitoring coolant levels.

Trace the upper radiator hose to the mounting area on the intake manifold. Loosen the hose clamp on the manifold end of the hose and remove the hose. Pull the thermostat out of the intake manifold.
