One rad hose goes to the water pump the other goes to the thermostat on top of the motor. undo the hose clamp and take off the hose that goes to the thermo . DO THIS WHEN THE VEHICLE IS COLD. have a small container handy to catch any coolant that may leak out. be sure to keep the hose up so coolant doesnt leak all over the ground.Once you take off the hose the thermostat should be right there. 2 bolts to take it out. fairly simple actually. replace with the new one and put hose back on. replace any coolant that might have leaked into your container. Hope this helps you Crystal. let me know. Thanks, Mark.

On 3.7/4.7L engines follow the lower radiator hose to the engine block. it will be attached to the thermostat housing by the pulley. You may need to lift the truck and disassemble the splash guard to gain easy access. Make sure your system is cooled and not pressurized.
Follow the lower hose back behind the alternator and power steering pump. It will attach to a plastic housing that is bolted to the engine. The thermostat is behind that housing. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

The Termostat fit inside the Termostat Housing. It normally links to one of the radiator hoses leading from the engine block or radiator. Depending on the model you have, the termostat housing needs to be opened, the old termostat removed and the new termostat inserted. It's quiet simple. Before closing up, make sure that the both surfaces on the housing are clean and free from dirt and old sealant. If you remove a gasket, then replace with new gasket. If the housing takes a rubber O ring, then it is advisable to replace this.
Good Morning. Overheating could be caused by a few different things, and a few of them are the thermostat (which you did), the cooling fans coming on when the car gets up to temperature, the water pump, and even into some harder things like head gaskets. So I would say the next thing to do is make sure your fans are working properly and go from there cooling is the key. Hope this helps, and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
