The thermostat is located on the driver's side of the engine directly below the throttle body. It is inside the aluminum housing that the upper radiator hose attaches to. There are two 13 mm bolts holding the housing on. Both bolts must be removed using a 13mm wrench, there is not enough clearance to use a socket. Be patient it is difficult. Make sure you use a new thermostat gasket.

generally located where the upper radiator hose meets the block, under the throttle body Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine, there should be the thermostat housing. And there is no drain plug on an 2002 Monte Carlo 3.8 v6 , so you will lose less antifreeze if you just disconnect the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing then hold that hose up. I only lost maybe a quart of antifreeze.
How do you get the Engine coolant sensor off of a 2001 Monte Carlo SS Ive tried about everything you can think of the exhaust and engine mount are in the way?
You are so in luck as I just finished that exact procedure... First, remove the radiator cap, assuming the engine is cooled down, and then the plastic engine cover by unscrewing the oil filler cap. Next, make sure you have some appropriate anti-freeze. Disconnect the posiitve terminal of the battery. Now, you will need to remove the thermostat housing using a 10 mm socket and move to the side. With a 3/4", 12 point wrench…
