Re: Where & how to install thermostat in honda accord...
Found this on a forum:
The thermostat in a 1992 HONDA accord is in the housing where the lower coolant hose meets the engine block. You may have to move the air intake hose to get access. The housing is on the passenger side top rear of the engine, behind the valve cover. I have an F22A1 motor in my car, yours may be different, but I doubt it. Hope this helps.

Under your thermostat housing but on the transmission. Two 10mm bolts hold it on and there is a plug on it. If you don't know where the therm housing is, follow the lower radiator hose from the the bottom of your radiator to where it goes into the engine.
Replacement it when engine cold is better by steps below.
- Remove Air filter
- Remove intake duct
- Remove thermostat housing.
- Pull-out metal coolant. end-of pipe has not bolt or nut. Some Ex. photo More info. Honda Accord 1992 Repair Manual
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Drain the cooling system (petcock bottom of radiator)
Follow the top radiator hose back to where it connects to the engine.
The part with the two bolts in it that the hose connects to is the thermostat housing.
You may have to remove the hose in order to remove the housing.
When you have removed the housing, note the position of the thermostat before you remove it.
When installing, use new gasket, etc.
(you might be able to get away with not removing the radiator hose, but it is recommended)
Be prepared for a bit of spillage when you remove the housing.
Hope this, being a bit late, helps.
the thermostat is located at the end of your upper radiator in a housing .there are 2 ten mm. bolts that hold the housing on. loosen going counter clockwise .make sure engine is cold .take housing off the t-stat is there.hope this helps!!!!!!!!
Hi there ... I'm not sure if you've pulled the old thermostat out yet. If you haven't pulled it out look at the way it's in. Normally the but end is towards the engine. (**** end is the end with the spring in it)
you need to follow the upper hose that lead from the radiator to the engine, there is two bolt that connect the thermostat housing to the block loosen the bolt using a 10 mm socket with ra-chet. Make sure that the engine is cool off before attempt to do this you will lose coolant but that's ok you will add the coolant when you finish replacing the thermostat. start the engine with the radiator cap off then add coolant slowly and cap it, then fill the reservoir up.
note the way you remove the thermostat that's the same way you will put the new one so pay attention when you remove the old one good luck.
