Ihave the 2.7. andI finnaly figured it out. You have to remove the passenger tire and inner fender, drive belt, accessory belts, alternator, alternator bracket, ac hook ups and a few other things. Just so everyone knows on the 2.7 and only the 2.7is the thermostat on the side of themotor (or front how everyou look at it) not were the top radiator hose meets the block.Thank you for your timeeveryone and good luck.

Does anybody here know wether the location of the Thermostat on the 2.7 (on the intake side of waterpump ) is realkly strictly exclusive to the 2.7???

Or are there other vehicles in this confusing day and age that use the same backward setup?

Seems to me that with this location .......in the event a Thermostat Sticks Closed it would boil the water out of the Waterjacket in no time and cause engine failure.

Yes and No.....The cooling system is a "SEMI-Reverse Flow" design, But that doesnt entirely eliminate what youre thinking. As far as I can Think....3.5 does this also.

Would you agree that in the event of a Locked up Thermostat that the conventional system where the thermostat is at the high end of the system (Waterpump Discharge) would allow more time before overheating?

In that case i believe the entire radiator would be heated from the bottom up before it finally overheats. Make sense?

I am so terrified of a locked up thermostat and since I use the car in summer only am seriously considering leaving it out altogether. There is no shortage of heat in a 2.7 to worry about excessive cooling I would think.
