Default P0128, clunking noise on cold start, whistle noise from front right

2002 Saturn Vue AWD V6
Temperature ~20-30 Fahrenheit

I had the p0128 code come on today after driving for ~10 minutes. I have found lots of p0128 related issues online that mention to replace the thermostat. When I do a cold start, I hear a clunking noise. I also ocassionally here a whistling noise/airy noise coming from the front right of the car. Are these related?

Also, can anyone access the service bulleting for the following?

2004 Saturn Vue Engine And Engine Cooling Service Bulletin 174536

NHTSA: Action Number: 10009360 Service Bulletin Number: 174536
Report Date:
Jul 01, 2004Component:
Engine And Engine Cooling
Summary: Service information regarding a pop/clunk noise from the rear of the vehicle on initial cold start and/or during the warm-up drive cycle. *tt

That service bulletin seems to tie at least the p0128 and clunking noise together since it is filed under Engine Cooling, but I cannot find the actual contents to the bulletin on google.

Thank you
