SOURCE: I cracked the housing for the thermostat on a 2002

Shouldn't cost that much. I would try some autoparts stores in the area to see if any of them carry it as they will be cheaper then a dealer, but you could always get one from a dealer.

Good Luck

Were do I find the thermostat on my 1994 nissan altima to replace it?

Here is a diagram showing where the thermostat is located on a 1994 Nissan Altima. Most vehicles are fairly similar as well the main water hose that goes to the engine is usually right next to or attached to the thermostat housing. Also once you take this hose off to get the thermostat you are going to need the bleed the coolant system because there will be air in the system. A simple google search or wikihow will show you exactly how to bleed air out with pictures and simple instructions. Good luck.

P0118 code

Make sure you didn't accidentally unplug the ECT sensor or damage the wires. If visual inspection checks out ok clear the code and verify it comes back. If it does probably need a new sensor and or thermostat, pay attention to your temperature gauge. If it acts erratic or definitively different then normal, most likely need a thermostat. I usually just replace both and be done with it.
