Follow your upper radiator hose from the radiator to the top of your engine, there where it clamps on is the thermostat housing, remove hose and two or three small bolt's that hold thermostat housing under that is where the thermostat is at. Remmeber that the spring side of the thermostat is what goes into the engine side, facing down.
The thermostat is located in the thermostat housing at the engine side end of the upper radiator hose.
You have to drain the engine coolant from the radiator until it is below the level of where the thermostat is.
Your thermostat is located under the thermostat housing, which is what the upper radiator hose clamps to on the top of your engine. Basically, you need to start with a cold engine, drain your radiator, then unclamp the upper radiator hose from the engine. Remove the bolts from the thermostat housing, and gently tap on it to remove it. clean up the mounting surfaces on both the engine and the housing, and install a new thermostat, and new gasket. tighten to proper torque, reconnect the radiator hose, then refill up the radiator and cooling system.
well if you pull the thermostat and it has a guewy residue on it you need to flush the cooland system but most of the time if your engine is overheating its 1 of 2 things... the water pump is shot or the thermostat is sticking closed. that is where i would start though the thermostat is the cheaper of the 2 and easer to get at
well it depends on your mechanical abilities on the difficulty scale i wouldnt consider it to hard it is under the throttle body you can get to it with out taking that off but trust me you want to take it off and if i were you replace the sensor as well your right there mine went about 2000 miles later its cheap or just follow the line that comes off your radiator on the drivers side it is in the aluminum housing right at the end of that line that bolts to the block
