If I remember correctly, that is a chain driven water pump. You'll have to take the timing cover off and remove the timing chain to get to the pump. I've done the timing on a Quad4 engine before and I think I would rater set fire to the car than to do that again.

Follow the lower hose from the radiator to the metal pipe that runs under the engine and connects to the back side of the engine to the water pump housing. Remove that metal pipe from the water pump housing and the t-stat will be right there.

96' Pontiac Grand AM, Won't start, has fuel, no spark.

We have a 1996 Grand am SE 6 cyl with similar problem. If yours is a 6 cyl check your crank sensors. There are 2 of them, one behind the Vibration damper and one on the back of the block that has a yellow / purple wire to the Ignition Control Module. Haynes manual electrical diagram call this one an Ignition Timing Sensor, but it is a Crank Sensor at the parts stores. I would check this one first. You should also check your coils and Ignition Switch and Knock Sensor. You can get a Haynes repair manual from Advanced auto that will explain how to test these items. Good Luck.
