Follow your Upper Radiator Hose to the Motor. It will attach to a Bell Housing. Remove this Bellhousing and the Hose. The Thermostat is Underneath the Bell Housing. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

It's inside the timing cover. Change the housing (with sensor) when you change thermostat.

I just purchased a 92 honda prelude. the car temp for the most part was fine until u step on it a little bit then she starts to over heat. i guy told me to replace the cooling fan sensor and i did. didnt...

Is the thermostat installed correctly? There is a bleed hole on the thermostat with a rivet in it. That should be up. Is the coolant level topped off? There should be a bleed screw on the manifold if I remember correctly. Honda's are very sensitive to coolant level. Check the cooling fans to see if they are running. The left one should be for cooling and the right fan for when a/c is turned on. You can jumper the plug for the coolant temp sensor ( where the lower radiator hose attaches to the block) and the fan should run when the car is running. If all else fails, you should have your cooling system pressure tested as this could be a blown head gasket.
