I have a Toyota Camry 1992 i would like to know how to put the thermostat.
The other thing is I had to change the radiator and I've got a problem, I have to keep a close eye on the water because if I go far it starts heating. I checked for any leak and all the hoses are fine. I have no idea of what is happening. Can someone help me.

This is better done when your engine is cold.
Park the car on a level fround.
Open the hood and remove the radiator cap.
Put a sizable container under the radiator and open its drain-plug.
(the drain-plug is by the radiator lower back wall).
Thermostat is in the inlet pipe held by three 10mm bolts that's attached to the engine block. (please note how it sitted)
Installation is reverse of removal. (replace o-ring around thermostat with a new one)
well is the thremostat is stuck yes it will cause problems if its stuck closed you will overheat and not have heat inside, and if its open you will never warm up, and if the thing is closed it will also take out a water pump after a bit of time. I would change it...
good luck hope this helps
should be a 14mm drain plug on the oil pan. you remove that until no more oil comes out. then put drain plug back in. it should be the only 14mm bolt on the bottom of the pan. then you will have a oil filter below the exhaust manifolds than needs to unscrew. replace with a new one. then fill your engine with 1 gallon or 4 quarts of oil.(same thing) thats all you should need.
i dont know but if you learngin how to work on cars thats a nice car to learn on. it pays off to repair your own car in the long run. you save so much money. :) GOOD LUCK!
The thermostat housing is on the passenger side of the engine, under the alternator area. You cannot see it with the alternator installed. Not easy to change, but, if you do, buy a Toyota thermostat. The factory 'stats have an air-purge valve, and it is very important. The aftermarket 'stats do not have this valve. Note that when you replace the 'stat the air purge valve should be at the top of the hole in the housing (pointing straight up).
