Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am
The thermostat is located inside the upper radiator hose where it attaches to the front/top of the motor. Undo the clamp on the large hose at that point using a screwdriver. Pull the hose off and you will see the round thermostat sitting in the "neck" that the hose was wrapped around. Take out the thermostat using a screwdriver by prying it out. Take note how the thermostat was sitting because when installing the new thermostat you must make sure the same side is facing outward or you will get it in backwards. Put the new thermostat back in the same way and then replace the hose and clamp and tighten.
