Thermostat replacement is easy and takes about one hour. Not all thermostats are located in the same place, so check with your local parts store for the exact location in your car.

How hard is it to change the thermostat on a 2002 grand am v6?

Not hard at all. Looking at the vehicle on the right side you should see the upper radiator hose, connected to it you should have what they call the "thermostat housing" remove it and the thermostat should be there. Replace it and the seal. A 6 min fix

Hose get hard then overheat

Sounds like you have a bad thermostat which is stuck closed. This does not allow cooler antifreeze into the engine. Replacing the thermostat should solve your problem. Thermostats are generally cheap and can be easy to replace on most vehicles.

Changing the thermostat

It's not hard, just a bit messy. Follow the top hose that runs from the radiator to the engine. Where it stops is the location of the thermostat. You will need to drain the coolant out of the radiator before you begin taking things apart. Be prepared to replace the coolant with new coolant mixed 50-50 with water when you are done.
Go to the parts store and get a new thermostat for that year/engine/model combination. Remove the hose from the thermostat housing, remove the housing and pull the thermostat out. Note how the spring on the thermostat faces. Clear out any gasket material that remains with a soft scraper -don't damage the area where the housing goes or it will leak. Put the gasket and thermostat in, put the housing back on and remember not to over-torque the bolts or when the engine gets hot bad things will happen. Replace the hose (is it time for a new one anyway?) and then refill the cooling system with antifreeze. Start the car and check for leaks.
