Go to the parts store and get a thermostat and gasket-O-ring seal for your engine. Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. Where the hose is clamped to the housing (goose neck) there should be 2 bolts that hold the housing on. You need to drain the radiator (anti-freeze) so it's level is lower than this housing (into a pan so you can put it back in). Then clean both surfaces and install the new seal and thermostat and refill the system. Some of these cars have a bleeder screw on the housing or near it to get the air out while filling the radiator or after it is running.

I need a diagram showing me where the thermastat is on a 2000 chevy malibu

You should be able to follow the top radiator hose over from the radiator. There will be a cover that the hose goes to. It should have two bolts that hold it on and the thermostat is under that cover.

Coolant is leaking around intake manifold and temp gauge is not working on my 2000 chevy malibu 3.4 litre

the manifold gasket must be shot on the manifold. usually when the gasket goes bad it puts oil into the coolant, as far as the guage not working. it must be the thermostat is bad, it probably went bad because of the manifold gasket. I have a 3.1 and the gasket went bad, so I changed it and the thermostat at the time I had it torn down. check to see if the coolant has oil in it. the best thing to do is go to any auto parts store and buy a haynes manual for your specific vehicle, this is based on a complete teardown of vehicle, the book will describe the procedure to change manifold gasket. but if you change the gasket do not forget to replace thermostat and coolant when done. best of luck Toolman,
