    I looked where you said it "should" be and that's also what I thought, but we are both wrong. On a 2000 Olds. Intrigue 3.5l - the thermostat is located on the front of motor on right side just above drive belt. Also, the lower radiator hose is the one to follow to the motor. I'm an old backyard mechanic from way back myself. I miss the old engines - that's technology for you.

    Thx, Duane

Usually just follow the upper radiator hose. it should be at the end of it.

Drill a 1/8" to 3/16" hole in the thermostat. this will let the coolant flow both way when you want heat inside the cabin. It works. I think when you ask for heat in the inside the water will take the path of the least resistant. the water will flow the the heater core and not the radiator. take out the thermostat from the housing, drill a hole in the large disk, put the thermostat back in the housing and reinstall and wala it will not over heat. note start with a 1/8" hole, if the hole is too big that will reduce the temp the water will get.

Where is the thermostat located on the 2000 olds intrigue 3.5 liter?

Follow your LOWER radiator hose to where it connects to the engine and remove and replace the housing which it connects to. The thermostat is an integral part of that housing and so you will need to replace the housing. The water inlet housing and thermostat assembly looks like this:

Thermostat is stuck shut - replace
Radiator clogged - clean fins of radiator. Have the radiator flushed.

Where is the thermostat located

Look at the large rubber hose that connects to the radiator at the top. Follow this hose to the point where it attaches to the engine. There should be a metal housing that this hose attaches to with a clamp. The thermostat should be inside this housing. A couple of bolts usually hold the housing in place.

My 2000 intrigue olsmobile star ok but after 20 minutes looks like overheating

Make sure the coolant is full, and your fans are coming on. Besides that, could be a bad thermostat, or radiator.

I'm trying to change the thermostat in my 1998 intrigue. i cant find the housing. (ps i'm a girl)

girl or not these newer cars are a pain. i have a 2000 intrigue and the thermostat is located on the front of the motor. it has to be attached to one of the radiator hoses - usually the top one - but on my car it was the lower one. good luck.
