Believe it or not, just remove the intake tube. Take a long boxed end wrench to reach back bolt and a wobble socket to reach front bolt. With a little luck, few swear words, and a cramped up hand, you should be able to change your thermostat.

Changing thermostat


Follow your top radiator hose to the engine and where it clamps to the housing you will see two small bolts on either side. Remove the bolts and under the housing is the thermostat. You may need a screw drive to assist lifting it out. Place the new one in the same way as the old one and re-install the housing...........pay attention to the housing mounting area during removal because there may be a gasket in between, if so you will need to clean all the old one off and put a new one on. If no gasket the thermostat should have a rubber o-ring around it.

Location of thermostat in 1997 chevy luminia 3.1 liter engine


The thermostat is located in the thermostat housing which is on the intake manifold under the throttle body (drivers side) to replace it, your going to have to remove the heat shield to the exhaust crossover and you can remove the two bolts that hold the thermostat in place with the right extension and swivel.
Note you only have to remove one bolt and looses the other one, the housing has a slot cutout to slide it out. Good luck and be safe.
Thank you for suing fixya and here are two links to the type of engine used in your Lumina.

Is there a freeze plug located behind the thermostat housing on a 96 lumina


There is not a freeze plug in the area but if you have antifreeze from there it could be the intake gaskets leaking.You may have to let a repair shop pressure test the cooling system to locate the leak.

Thermostat location


The thermostat is in a difficult position. Follow the upper radiator hose and it leads into the block under the throttle body. 
Remove the air filter assembly and you'll c what is the exhaust manifold crossover pipe right in front of the thermostat housing.
 NICE, it gives you very little room to remove the 2 bolts to the housing and once u remove those then you'll find you have the thermostat housing loose but because of that darn exhaust manifold crossover pipe u don't have enough room to take the thermostat housing out to change the stinking thermostat. 
So from what you can see, you have to remove the heat shield which is cased around the exhaust manifold crossover pipe and if you still can't get enough room to remove the thermostat, (which you amy find out)then you'll have to remove the crossover pipe as well just to change the thermostat. 
If you have to remove the crossover pipe then their are 2 bolts on both ends of the pipe leading into the manifolds. But then the tough parts done and once u switch the thermostat over and ATTENTION:remove any old gasket material and put a new gasket in it's place then installation is reverse of removal. 
Good luck and hope this helps,
