Check fuse box
Radiator lid ( shut for pressure)
Thermostat.( change to be sure)
Flush the cooling system( not just drain and refill)
Check engine oil for coollant or for possible gasket damage.
There is a drain on the bottom of the radiator on the passenger side of the radiator to drain the anti-freeze. Remove the radiator cap and loosen the drain plug on the radiator, spray some WD-40 on the drain valve to help get it loose. Drain the radiator, tighten back up the drain plug and refill, should be 1-11/2 gallons.
To locate the thermostat, open the hood and support it on the prop rod. Look down at the radiator and follow the large hose from the radiator to the engine. The hose is clamped to the thermostat housing. If you remove this housing, you can access the thermostat.
The thermostat is located on the engine block, where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. You'll see a large elbow-like component that is attached to the engine with 2 bolts.
Just follow that upper radiator hose and you got the location. When you remove that housing (elbow-like component), you'll see the thermostat. Make sure you note which end of the thermostat is up and which end is down. Don't reverse the install.
You need to drain the radiator enough to add antifreeze/coolant. Thre is a drain plug/screw at the bottom corner of the radiator on the driver side.
You should drain it completely and close the valve then add coolant at the proper mixture.
