Follow the top radiator hose back to where it ends and that will be the thermostat housing.Remove the 2 bolts on the housing and the thermostat will be underneath it.Notice which is the top and bottom of thermostat and put back in the same direction.

Over heating. I want to check thermostat, how do I take it out?

What is the model, year and engine size of the engine you are trying to remove the thermostat on. If it is a 350 cid chev. then if you follow the top radiator hose down to the intake you should see the thermostat housing and it should have two bolts that attach it to the engine. Remove the bolts and the thermostat will be inside. Be sure to clean the old gasket off before installing the new stat.

Cooling system how does it operate

The cooling system in necessary to deal with waste heat produced by the internal combustion engine. Each size and type of engine and vehicle will have a unique set of parameters. Of course there is a rather small amount of radiant heat from the external components of the engine and also from the exhaust system. The most common cooling system is liquid to air. The coolant, which is moved about internally by a centrifugal pump in the engine, absorbs heat up to a predetermined point and then is able to transfer the heat out to the atmosphere via the heat exchanger. Coolant is commonly water based. Certain additives are used to both increase density and prevent galvanic action (corrosion). The thermostat is a variable orifice used to restrict the coolant flow into the heat exchanger (radiator) until a pre-set temperature is reached. At that time the thermostat starts to crack open to allow some coolant into the radiator for heat removal. If not enough heat is removed the thermostat opens wider allowing ever more heat removal at the radiator until the thermostat is wide open. This is the point where the radiator must be correctly sized to be able to dispose of all excess heat. Usually a fan is used to force air through the radiator which increases the amount of heat removed.

Car overheats antifreez comming fromside of engine to firewall

You say you "have antifreeze coming from side of engine to firewall is that correct?
If so look for a small rubber hose(might be encased in ribbed aluiumin) This hose would be part of the collants systems cabin heat sysytem.Most likely it will be about 1 inch in size. and as short as 3" and can be as long as 21". I've seen this ocurr only when the engine warms up and thermostat opens.

I have no heat

I would assume that the thermostat has stuck open and is not allowing the engine to build up to temperature.
This will have adverse effects on engine performance, including accelerated wear and increased fuel consumption. You should remove the thermostat and check the size of the gap in the valve body. If it's even open the slightest amount, then it's allowing the water to constantly flow in and out of the engine block.

No AC in the summer, no heat in the winter. Although air blows out, its just air. Engine light comes on. Heat gauge is all the way at the bottom...doesn't move upward. What do I do and how much would it...

your thermostat is likely stuck open. Recommend you replace the thermostat. The thermostat is usually at the end of the upper radiator hose in a housing you have to unbolt from the engine. If you need instructions, please reply with your model, year, and engine size.
