Question about 2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Follow the bottom pipe of the radiator to the engine block. the thermostat is close to that.
a good idea would be to flush your system (get a bottle radiotor flush from a motor spares shop and follow instructions. It makes sense since you are going to be draining the system anyways and clearly you have an overheating problem so you are killing two birds with one stone
make sure the engine is off and cooled down. Hot radiator fluid is higher than boiling point.
remove the cooling system cap to ensure there is no pressure in the system.
loosen the hose clamps of the above mentioned pipe. remove pipe, from engine block and radiator.
Look for bolts on and close to where the radiator hose connects. there should be two ir three.
Loosen and remove. gently remove the housing. Be careful when removing the old thermostat and new thermostats do not come with the rubber seal you see around the thermo.
Replace with identical thermo. when replacing the housing remember to apply gasket sealant. this takes 8 to 12 hours to harden / cure.
replace the radiator hose to be one the safe side. tighten clamps, fill up radiator with anti-freeze/summer coolant and water.
You should be up and running in a day or two

Trace the upper radiator hose to the mounting area on the intake manifold. Loosen the hose clamp on the manifold end of the hose and remove the hose. Pull the thermostat out of the intake manifold.
