Ok, I will ty to help ya.  This is pretty simple.  First pop your hood open.  Make sure your engine is cool or you can and will get burned!!! Take the cap off of the radiator.  Under the car on the bottom side of the radiator, to the passenger side I believe is a plug.  Get yourself something ***Clean*** to hold the antifreeze in.  It has to hold a few gallons.  Make sure it is clean if you want to reuse the antifreeze.  If you can not find a plug, take the bottom hose off.  Drain the antifreeze.  Next, look on top of the radiator.  There should be a big hose going from the top of the radiator to the engine.  Follow it.  It should be connected to a metal water inlet that is bolted to the engine.  Take that end of the hose off.  Unbolt the water inlet from the engine.  inside is your thermostat.  ***Make sure you note which way the thermostat sits in there.*** As is you install the new one backwards, it will not work.  After you have your new thermostat in place, use some sealant and place the inlet back on the engine.  Tighten the bolts down.  Reconnect your upper hose.  Put you bottom hose or drain plug, whichever you used, back together.  Refill your radiator with antifreeze.  Chances are it will not all fit.  you may need to run your engine for a few seconds to get it circulating.  Put you cap back on and drive the car a few miles to get it warmed up.  Come back and let the car cool off.  Open the cap and make sure it is full and you are done.  I know it is lengthy, but it is pretty simple.  Hope it helps and please don't forget to rate!

Follow the top or upper radiator hose to the engine. The water neck is connected to the hose and then the water neck bolts to the engine. The thermostat is UNDER the water neck.
