You can test to see if it is the thermostat by running the vehicle allowing the coolant in the engine to become hot. Then squeeze the top radiator hose. You may want to use gloves to protect your hands. If you feel a lot of resistance in the hose in the direction of the engine then it is likely that the thermostat is stuck. To replace the thermostat remove the two bolts that secure the thermostat cover. They are located where the top radiator hose connects to the engine block. You can also verify if it is defective after removal by dropping it in boiling water and seeing if it opens. The correct temperature for it to open is usually written on it. They are not that expensive so it is best to use one from the dealer. Regardless, make sure it is designed to open at the same temperature. The assembly (thermostat/gasket) is number 5 in the image below. Just google part#19301-P8E-A10
