Question about 1997 Honda Odyssey
Follow the lower radiator hose from the radiator up to the thermostat cover. Remove the electrical connector that is on the cover (to the radiator fan switch) and then remove the 2 bolts holding the cover to get to the thermostat.
How to install thermostate:
CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
See Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4
Fig. 1: A thermostat can be tested by placing it in a suitable container filled with water, and heating the water with a hot plate while monitoring the temperature with a thermometer Fig. 2: The thermostat should open when the water reaches the correct temperature Fig. 3: The coolant bleed screw is located near the thermostat housing on Odysseys with 4-Hello! Where is the thermostat - 0900c152800b0b88.jpgan> Fig. 4: Always install the thermostat with the small pin at the top. The rubber thermostat seal is installed around the thermostat

Ronnie is dead wrong... on the Odyssey, it is the LOWER hose you follow. The upper hose only goes to a sensor housing.

Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the other end and youll find the housing for the thermostat.you have to take the hose loose and take the housing off to put in a new one
