Where is the thermostat located on a 2001 Chevy Cavalier?

Oddly enough, the housing for the thermostat is on the lower radiator hose. Follow the hose to a black housing attached to a cast aluminum housing! The front of this housing seperates by two 8mm bolts revealing the thermostat! The cast housing is easy to spot... it is directly underneath the alternator and to the right of the exhaust manifold. some models have a heat shield over the manifold that must be removed for easy access! The cast housing routes directly to the motor and has several bypass hoses routed thru it!
