yas you can, drain the cooling system,disconnect the radiator hose at the thermostat housing cover , undo the two bolts and lift off the thermostat housing cover and gasket, withdraw the thermostat from housing, ri-fitting is the reverse sequence to removal , but use a new cover gasket and ensure that the thermostat is fitted with the jiggle pin uppermost . fill the cooling system .

A car can overheat for a lot of reasons.First make sure this is the problem by checking the radiator hose or water level. Open the radiator cap when the car is cold, crank it, and then watch the water level. If it drops when the car warms up this is not the problem.
The tools you will need will depend on what you have to take off to get to it. If you can access the thermostat you should only need a ratchet or wrench to remove it and something to scrape off old gasket with.
Location:The thermostat should be inside the thermostat housing on the motor. Follow your top radiator hose to the place where it goes into the motor. There should be a sort of dome shaped housing there with probably a bolt on either side of it.The thermostat is inside that.
This is a reasonably easy job, but shouldn't be done carelessly. It's also kind of messy.
When the car is cold remove the bolts from the housing with a ratchet. Lots of coolant and water will drain out. But the thermostat will be visible.Pay attention to which side of the thermostat is up.It should just lift up. Remove all the old gasket from around the area and clean it up well. Replace the thermostat and gasket then the bolts. Be very careful not to over tighten the bolts or the housing will be ruined.

The ECM or computer needs a reflash done to it. The code is for the EVAP system. Takes over a hour to check the EVAP system and to reprogram the computer. Then the idle speeds need to be relearn. I know, I work on them. Don
