Question about 1995 Nissan Sentra
Mendez1421: follow the upper radiator hose to the engine and it will lead you to the thermostat housing. The thermostat housing has three bolts which retain it in place. Usually they have 10mm heads. When installing the thermostat, make sure you have installed it in the correct direction. The part which has the "Hoop" faces the radiator. Most thermostats have a top and bottom. It will either say top or it will have a small hole with a little metal tab which projects through the hole and fits loosely. The thermostat has a recessed ares in which it fits. Make sure it is in place otherwise you will crack the housing. The the gasket is a silicon which comes in a tube. Use a "SMALL" bead, not a big glob!
Allow it to lightly skin and then put the two together. The torque specs are 4-6 ft lbs on the bolts. This cooling system has several places with bleeder screws to purge the air out of the system.
It is very important to do this otherwise the engine will overheat!
A bleeder is located to the right of the thermostat housing and looks like a bolt screwed into the head usually it will have a label.
When you fill the radiator, remove this plug and when the coolant starts to run out, put the plug back in. There is another one located near the EGR valve and another where the a series of hoses come together near the back of the motor. Remember to have the heater in the open position to allow coolant to flow through the core as well. Get the engine to operating temp and recheck the level in the radiator and recovery tank.
I hope this has covered more than your question as to it's location.
This way you can judge whether it is a job you can undertake by your self..

Find the big hose that comes out of the top of the radiator and follow
it to the engine and that is where the thermostat is located. My
advice is to be sure to get a factory thermostat and rubber gasket as
it makes installation much easier. I have done it both ways and the
factory one is easier to install.
