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...

Answerwhere is the thermostat on a 2000 Pontiac grand am Instructions on how to change a thermo..Hello, this page has instructions on how to install a new thermostat on a 99+ Grand Am. Also, not listed on the page as an instruction but something I did when changing the thermostat was to take off the throttle body which made getting to the inlet manifold bolts much easier. The bottom bolt was particulary hard to get too, the top bolt was not too bad. Good Luck. http://www.grandamgt.com/thermostat-pfyc.HTML
