when you lift up the car the thermostat is located on the right front bottom of the block you'll see a radiator hose by the compressor ,the thermostat goes inside a small housing and it is a little difficult to put back in because the gasket has to place properly

1996 3.1 litre ThermostatThe thermostat on a 3.1 litre is located under the throttle body where it connects to the intake manifold. I found it was easier to remove the throttle body when replacing the thermostat. You first have to remove the throttle cable bracket that is mounted on the throttle body. After that you will be able to see the thermostat housing. The bottom hole on the thermostat housing is slotted so you don't have to completely have to remove it. Good luck!
