does your key have a chip on it ? if it does , the problem is going to be that ,key chip only works with the original computer , until you have it reprogrammed by the dealer . this is an anti theft function to keep someone from stealing your car . there fore your car will not start until the chip matches the ecm.

if you follow the top radiator hose to the engine you will see where it connects to the engine...you will want to drain some of the coolant from the radiattor but once you loosen the clamp holding the hose on you will need to pull the hose off and push it to the side out of the way. there are two bolts that hold the housing on that you need to remove where the hose was hooked up. once you take those bolts out you should be able to pull the housing out and the thermostat is right there.
i do wish to offer you an opinion on the thermostat i dont think its the problem..i think maybe your heater core is partially clogged and not letting the coolant get into the interior of the car as you are driving.if its blowing warm when you start it up and let it run and it gets warm and then get cooler as you drive thats going to be in the heater core since the thermostat is opening to let the heat in when you first start the car up to warm it up.

The radiator is in the front of the car under the hood behind the grille. It will be rectangular shaped and have a fan set to blow against it. It will have a cap on the top. DO NOT REMOVE THE CAP WHILE THE ENGINE IS HOT. Beside the radiator is another rectangular shaped item that looks like the radiator but is the condensor for the air conditioner. It does not have a cap on top and is in front of the radiator.
The drain for the radiator is on the lower part. After draining be sure to close the drain before refilling.
Refill the overflow bottle as well.
AFTER you refill, let the engine run for about a minute while topping off the radiator so any air will work out of the system.
Then install and tighten radiator cap.
When you drain the radiator, dispose of the fluid according to local regulations or recycling center. Do not allow animals to drink any of it. It's poisonous.
You can get an auto repair manual from library, auto parts stores or the internet.
