where is the thermostat and how do you replace it on a 1997 Ford explorer?

I don't know why this is listed as an answer. Its in the front top of the engine. in the middle, underneath that plastic cover that says SOHC. You'll probably need a universal joint on your extention to remove the 3 bolts holding it in place. (10 mm) One of the big hoses from the radiator connects directly to the plastic housing that surrounds it. Can't miss it.

How do you replace the thermostat on a 99 model Pontiac grand am?

On the 2000 models with the 3400 engine in it you must first remove the throttle body. Removing the throttle body makes access to the thermostat housing very easy. Simply take 2 bolts out of the housing and remove the thermostat. After replacing thermostat you must bleed the air out of the system because it is pressurized. Not bleeding out the air can cause severe engine damage if allowed to run. overheatin of the engine is the first sign.
