The one in the center is referred to the center engine mount in my book.. they list a left, right, and center engine mount . it calls for 2.7 hours replacement time and does not give me a price or procedure. unfortunately I haven't replaced one of these myself yet, or I might have more info for you. Autozone carries an inexpensive one part #8830 for around $25, or a premium mount #A6919 for around $35

2002 Volkswagen passat 6 cyl replace thermostat

This is a time consuming process, that should not be done, unless you are sure of your mechanical skills, the thermostat is behind the timing belt (why VW ever did that I do not know). You will have to remove the front bumper, and put the front of vehicle into what is called service position, meaning the front end of the car, radiator and mounting moves forward a few inches. It sounds complicated but its not really to bad.
Then you will need to removed the serpentine belt and power steering pulley. Remove timing belt covers. Then either removed the top portion of timing belt and then remove thermostat housing, or if you are really patient, you can try to squeeze the thermostat out from behind, but it is not easy at all.

All in all, this job for a DIY is probably around 5-8 hours of work and I would not attempt unless you have done something like this before.

Misfire in #2 Cylinder, how do I find # 2 cyl on my V6

The number 2 cylinder is nearest the firewall under the windshield and centre. From the front of the engine where the belt is, it goes 1, 2, 3 at the back when the hood is open and the front nearest the radiator will be 4, 5, 6. Let me know if you need anything else.
