Question about 1998 Saturn SL
Should be in the housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose.
Drain the coolant, remove the upper hose, then look for a couple of bolts that hold the housing onto the engine. Remove those bolts and the housing should come off. There may be a small bypass hose (about one inch diameter, three to six inches long) that is also attached to the housing, if so, remove it also.
Remove the old thermostat and gasket, install the new one, put everything back together and refill the coolant.
You might want to drain all the coolant and replace it, if it is time for new coolant, otherwise save the old coolant and put it back in, unless it looks rusty or otherwise bad.
Coolant should be disposed of properly, do not pour it down a storm drain. Some cities allow it in sanitary sewer, some don't. Call your city's waste services.
