Question about 1997 Honda CR-V
I took out the hose top one from the radatior and there was no thermo in there please help
Follow bottom radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block, thermostat is there, it takes a short 10 mm 3/8 drive socket to remove the bottom bolt, and a 10 mm wrench to remove the top bolt. Drain the radiator first in a clean bucket, so you can reuse the coolant, then take the breather hose off the fuel injection body, then once you have removed the two bolts off the goose neck, you may be able to pry it apart at the top between the two cast pieces, you will also need to remove the ground screw on the housing, and the radiator hose attached to it, make sure you put the thermostat in the same way you took it out, the thermostat goes between the gasket, take very little gasket compound and put it on the goose neck , this will help keep the thermostat in place when putting back together, be sure you have all the hoses hooked back up and its snug, also the hose going to the injection body, put your antifreeze back in the radiator first them fill the coolant jug just past max run the car till the radiator fan turns on then turn it off and let cool for a bit and repeat until you have all the air out of the system and the coolant jug it filled to max as it runs to operating temperature! you will have to buy an extra 2 gallons of prestone antifreeze, because you'll have lost some from taking the goose neck off the thermostat housing! Good Luck!

it should be located right outside the engine block. follow the black rubber hose going from the radiator to the engine. the peice it connects to on the engine should be where it is. if you buy a hanes repair manual from autozone for your car it will walk you through it

Remove the nuts/bolts securing the thermostat housing ...
... then remove the thermostat housing
Once the housing is removed, the thermostat can be removed from the engine
Hope helps (remember comment and rated this).
