Hello. Here a non-photo diagram. Hope this helps!!!
The thermostat is located on the side of the water pump, the water pump
is located just above the a/c compressor, the thermostat is fed coolant
from the radiators lower radiator hose.
1. drain coolant and tighten drain plug ( easier method : remove
radiator cap, get big drain pan, place drain pan under lower radiator
hose to radiator connection, remove clamp, slowly remove hose, allow
coolant to drain into pan, now is a good time to remove radiator hose
and clamp from thermostat housing )
2. remove thermostat cover / cap ( easiest to get at this when front of
car is supported by jack stands and right hand side lower cover is
3. thermostat cap is held on by 3 bolts / remove thermostat.
You will notice that the thermostat's air bleed hole is pointing up and lines up with notch in water pump housing,,
ATTENTION :failure to install new thermostat in the correct location will cause engine to overheat.
1. install new thermostat to water pump, make sure air bleed hole lines
up with notch, install and tighten bolts, install a new lower radiator
hose, fill cooling system.
