If its 2.7L the thermostat is at the lower radiator hose and not at the upper
u need to raise the car remove the alternator

remove thermostat housing remove and replace thermostat
if not 2.7L

What if the coolant is also getting hot would it be the thermostat? Or could it be something else before I take the alternator off and un-do everything

So its 2.7L
Coolant getting hot is a sign of overheating
as a 1st step coolant level should be checked & check fan operations (fuses and relays ), if all OK

then go for the thermostat
