Where is the thermostat?

I was changing the oil and just checking things out in the engine bay yesterday. I followed the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the motor and was unable to find a removable water neck. The hose just connects to a large metal section on the front of the block. Where is the thermostat located at on this motor? I dont need to replace it, just wondering where it is for future reference.

This is for a 2002, but still a 3.7L. It looks as though it is actually where the lower hose connects to the engine block to the left of the pulley. Start on page 21.

towards the bottom on the passengers side, just look for a good sized hose coming off the motor and thats probably going to be it.

if you need to change the thermostat, they are a little bit of a pain and you need something under it to catch the fluid thats going to come out

That kind of sucks. Thanks though, at least now I know.

Be very careful with the 2 housing bolts. If you're lucky you wont break any of them. Use BP blaster if they are hard to get out and take your time. The aluminum side of the housing loves to bond with the steel bolt. I had an easy radiator and T-stat change that went to hell.
