Question about 2004 Chevrolet Impala
Had car shop change thermostat and now have leak from upper coolant hose where thermostat is housed. What to do. Is shop responsible? Or could something unrelated be happening?
If it did not leak before they change thermostat, take it back, if its any kind of shop they should stand behind there work.

Should be located in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
Drain about 1 gallon of coolant from the radiator
Remove this housing
Note how thermostat is installed
Clean both surfaces
Replace thermostat and gasket
Re-fill coolant slowly to prevent an airlock
Start engine and look for leaks
Run engine to normal operating temperature with heater on
Re-check coolant level
