If it's similar to the '99 that I'm working on, this may help. I followed the upper (large) hose from the radiator back to the block. After clearing cables I saw an imprinted message on the housing that read 'Thermostat is located near water pump'. I got the car on ramps, crawled under, and followed the lower radiator hose back, and I can see the thermostat in between the block and the transaxle. It's about 8 inches up, & it looks like I need to get to it from the top, but it's under the exhaust and exhaust shield. I can't see it from the top yet, will update when I find more...
