if you are in the right area the thermostat will come out of the housing
make sure on reassembly that the body of the thermostat faces the head water or block water

My 2000 chevy 3500 6.5 turbo diesel isn't throwing out heat. where are the thermostat(s) located?

The thermostat housing is located on top and front of the engine. You will see a large radiator housing coming from it. There are 4 bolts to open the housing (15mm) and hose clamp(s) to loosen on the radiator hose. Once removed just pull out the 2 thermostats. When you are replacing the thermostat(s)-the gasket(s) for the housing are on the attached to the new thermostats- As you probably noticed when pulling out the old ones.

2000 chevy silverado normal operating temp 210 , recently temp rises to 250. water pumps no leaks therm. appears OK .

With the truck running at operating temperature, squeeze your upper radiator hose. You may have to check it a couple times allowing time for your thermostat to open. Are you able to compress the hose a little when you squeeze it or does it remain stiff/solid? Your thermostat may be stuck open or even stuck closed.

I also need to find my thermostat on my 2000 silverado p/u.

The thermostat on V6 engines is under the thermostat housing at the engine side of the top radiator hose. The thermostat on V8 models is found by tracing the bottom radiator hose back to the thermostat housing on the engine. The housing, thermostat, and O-ring on the V8 models is built as an assembly and will have to be replaced as such.
