Its located under the throttle body or follow the upper radiator hose til it hits a semi round housing. There is 2 bolts to remove it. First you have to drain the radiator fluid of course.

I am changing the thermostat right now on my 2001 Chevy Lumina and I see I will have to also remove the throttle body to get to the thermostat housing

Drain the coolant. Follow the top radiator hose to the engine and this is usually where the thermostat is housed. Usually 2 bolts hold the housing on. Pull them and take note of the position of the thermostat, the spring should be engine side. Clean all mating surfaces good or leaking may occur. Reassemble and fill with coolant. Run and check coolant again.
