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...

A lack of water in your cooling system will cause your 2002 Pontiac Sunfire to overheat. A malfunctioning thermostat can also cause it to overheat.

The 2002 Pontiac sunfire does not have a cabin filter. The air flows freely either in fresh air or recirculation modes.

The fuel filter on a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire is in the rear between the fuel tank and the rear axle. By the way its under the car and easy to change takes about 10 minutes.

The side of the driver's door on my 2002 Pontiac sunfire is a little hard to read, but I believe it says 30 PSI.
