Sounds like either a motor mount is out or got play in the drivetrain. pop the hood and while in park push and pull the car to see how much movement you get with the engine. if it is a motor mount youll see alot of movement if it is tight and still hear a bang it is in the drivetrain.

The thermostat is located in a housing, mounted on your engine with the top radiator hose attached. It is relatively easy to replace.
Be sure to put the new thermostat in the correct direction (notice direction of old one before taking it out). Also, be sure to clean the old gasket from the housing and be careful not to break the housing... many are cast aluminum and overtightening a bolt can easily create a headache. :o)
Hope this helps... Good luck!
