Follow the upper radiator hose down to the engine to the intake manifold, you will find the thermostat housing, under it is the thermostat. Couple of bolts and hose clamps, and your there. Good luck, dont forget to rate.

There are eight COPs (coil-on-plugs) to remove. Using a 7mm or 9/32" socket, remove each bolt securing each COP to the intake manifold on top of the engine. Remove all eight COPs, and the spark plugs are underneath. When replacing the spark plugs, use only the proper Ford/Motorcraft plugs, even if they cost twice as much as the aftermarket ones. You will avoid further headaches this way. Hope this helps.

If anything, it might be stuck partially open. If it were stuck fully closed, the car would really overheat, like boiling hot. You might try taking the radiator cap off when it is cooled down enough, and start the car and wait till it has reached normal operating temperature, so the thermostat should be fully open. Now momentarily squeeze the upper radiator hose together as tight as you can, trying to stop the flow. Look into the radiator and see if you notice a surge of coolant when you let the hose go. If the thermostat is open you should feel the coolant surge when you let your hand go of the hose, and see the coolant coming into the radiator. Just kind of a rough test. If you aren't sure, a new thermostat is always a good idea.
