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

Should be in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose

In the connection at the radiatorhose and waterpump Follow the upper radiator hose out of the radiator. When that hose connects to your engine, the thermostat is in there.

Look where the top radiator hose connects to the engine(water pump).
