WelcomeCustomer What size engine do you have in your car?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
2.4 L V6
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 8 years ago.
OK, there is a bit of an issue, the 2,4L is a 4 cylinder. Please verify. If need be, post your VIN and I can tell for sure.

3100 SVI V6, does that sound right?
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 8 years ago.

Yes. That is correct. The thermostat is under the upper rad hose fitting that goes to the lower intake manifold. They are a bit of a pain to get at, but I can usually get it with out removing the exhaust cross over pipe. Below is a picture.
