Just follow the upper radiator hose to the housing that it is connected to. Remove the radiator hose, and then the housing itself. The thermostat is under the housing. be sure to remove all the old gasket and install a new one when you put it back together.
Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the other end. Where the other end attaches is the thermostat housing. It is generally fastened with two bolts. The thermostat is located under the housing.
Follow you upper radiator hose and the hose will be attached to the thermostat housing. Its usually bolted down with 2 Screws. Once you unscrew those 2 screws lift it up and the thermostat should be in plain view. Make sure to replace the gaskets with the thermostat too.
Thermostats almost always reside in a housing at the engine side end of the upper radiator hose. Drain coolant first, then loosen radiator hose to access thermostat housing. If you can't find the housing, consult your vehicle service manual for location.
Loosen the bolts that hold down the thermostat housing. Remove the housing to reveal the thermostat.
Note the location and orientation of thermostat relative to the engine. Remove thermostat.
Use a scraper to remove old gasket material from all mounting surfaces.
Place new gasket on housing. Use a small amount of grease or adhesive to hold it in place during reassembly.
Make sure new thermostat is oriented properly and reinstall the housing.
Reconnect all hoses. Close radiator petcock. Refill cooling system with recommended 50/50 blend of water and coolant. Run engine and heater to purge air from cooling system. Recheck the coolant level once engine is cool. found info on web site listed Good luck
Follow upper radiator hose from top of radiator to engine. It attaches to thermostat/water outlet housing. Remove hose clamp. Remove two bolts beneath hose that attach housing to intake manifold. Under this housing is your thermostat.
the thermostant is behind the exhaust crossover pipe, this is the pipe that connects the front exhaust manifold to the rear, the housing is behind that, its a tight fit,also if you follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to engine the housing that the hose goes to is where the thermostant goes,heres a diagram, hope this helps,
The thermostat will be located either at the upper radiator hose inlet to the engine, or it will be located at the lower radiator hose inlet to the engine.
Remember that the spring end of the thermostat should always go towards the engine, and not towards the hose.
Also with a lower mounted thermostat, when it comes time to add coolant you should dis-connect the upper radiator hose at the radiator and fill the engine through the radiator hose, if you do not then there will be very little coolant in the engine block until the thermostat opens up, and by then your engine could be toast.
Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine. The thermostat is located in the housing where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. There are 2 14mm bolts that hold the housing down, remove the bolts and housing and replace the thermostat.
