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).

depends on what motor you have, it'll either be on the bottom of radiator (you might have to move the cover to get at it) or in the rear of the engine block. if you get at them i'd simply just remove the lower hose from the radiator. just make sure car is compleatly cooled down first.

I have kept my cars running for a long time (250k+) by changing fluids as u are doing, and fixing things right away, not letting them develop into bigger problems, so u are destined to have your car for a long time! Many of the maintenance items u list are typically NEVER done by anyone, but they should be. Here's what I recommend from many years of maintaining my cars:
ps flush-50k or 5 yrs
brake fluid flush- every time u have brakes replaced.
Rad.drain, flush, fill -new coolant is said to be good for life of car, I would flush and refill 50/50 coolant water mix every 4 years.
Fuel Injection- I'll get flak over this, but I never do anything to the system, just change your fuel filter every 2 years, or 20k
Trans Flush-don't have it done if they '**** out' the fluid from the dipstick tube. I consider that method a waste. Have the pan removed to drain it, and replace the trans filter if equipped w/ one (u can't change the filter if u **** the fluid out of the dipstick.) Also, some vehicles have a magnet on the bottom of the trans. pan, which collects fine shavings from normal wear and tear (and pieces of metal from a trans. about to go bad). U need to drop the pan to clean this crud off the magnet.
oil and filter (good quality filter-cheap junky ones are much lighter than a quality one) every 3k or twice a year whichever comes 1st
I'll add: air filter- every 20k or once a year
check tire air pressure once a month, rotate tires for even wear (every 5k miles) Can I buy your well maintained car when u r ready to sell it?

SOURCE: Overheating Toyota Camry 2004
Check the Tension on your Belt and the Waterpump. I have never Heard of someone Needing to Replace the Entire Motor just for an Overheating Issue unless it has been Driven too far while Hot or Someone Puts Cold Water in a Hot Motor. Check these things first and get a Second Mechanic to check it out Before you Proceed with an Unneccessary Replacement. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

have you had the undercarriage inspected for white stains from coolant, rust stains if your system is corroded? How many miles? has the water pump ever been replaced, that would be my guess, water pumps leak while the eng is running and the hot engine evaporates the coolant, so in many cases none on the ground. Also have the system pressure tested by a shop and put on a rack to check for signs of leaking under the car.
