This does not look like my car set up. 97 Buick LeSabre Custom, 6 cyl, transverse mounted engine.
3.8 engine?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Yes
This is the correct procedure, verified by 2 sources. You should be able to follow the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing. The thermostat will be under the housing. The picture shows the throttle body removed, that is maybe why it does not look the same as yours.

I'm not to swift on this car. Think engine cover messing me up with looking at your diagram. How do you remove engine cover?

Ok, that would make it look different. Depending on the year, that cover was not there, but since you have it, grab hold of the oil filler neck and turn it left to remove it. The whole thing will come off including the cap. If there is a nut on the top, remove it. Pull the front of the cover up and pull out towards you to remove it.
