Should be in a housing just at the motor end of the upper radiator hose. Trace the upper hose down under the alternator.
Pull the hose off (be sure you have a way to catch the coolant first!) Then you unbolt the thermostat bolts and pull out the thermostat. REMEMBER which way it goes---the part with the "nose" points toward the radiator. Then clean both surfaces of the housing really good, and put on a new thermostat gasket. You can seal it with some light white grease, but just enough to make the gasket stick. Don't use goopy silicone sealant! Tighten the bolts but don't go crazy. Just enough to strain the muscles in your arm using a 3/8 drive wrench. Do NOT put your back into it. NICE and SNUG. Now you have to fill up the plastic reservoir tank. Then you run the engine for for just 30 seconds or so, then shut it off. Now you have to find the BLEED SCREWS and open them up so as to let air out of the cooling system. Then close the air bleeds. Repeat this filling up and running the engine briefly until coolant comes out of the air bleeds. Then top off the reservoir tank.
I think one air bleed is by the pipe where you put in the oil. Once you find it, look for another one like it. Sorry I don't have a manual for your car.

I assume this is an automatic transmission, you didn't say.
There is no dip stick on the transmission any longer.
You will have to go under the car to check. You may want to go to your local instant oil change and have them check the level.
If you feel you want to check it, here is a description of the location and process.
Make certain the vehicle remains level while checking the fluid.
Located just above the top sealing flange of the transmission oil pan you will find a threaded plug. Remove the plug and see if transmission fluid drips out of the hole. If so, the fluid level is correct. If not, remove the red fill cap on top of the transmission, driver side. Add fluid to the transmission until fluid dribbles out of hole.
Replace and tighten the plug.

1. Open the hatch and stand under it.
2. Remove pull handle from the inside of the hatch (2 screws under pop panels).
3. Starting in the lower corners, gently pry the entire interior panel from the hatch,
and leave it hanging from the wiper area near the glass.
4. Grasp the bulb housing and twist to the left while pressing inward.
5. Replace with a 1156 bulb.

I have run into a few of these and what I found was water getting into the wires that go to these headlights.The harness is just below the battery area.It will be easier to get to from the bottom of the vehicle.You will have to remove the plastic cover from the harness and the electrical tape.Find the dark blue and the orange wires.The dark blue is for the drivers side and the orange is for the passengers side.There should be 2 of each.Look real closely and see if you see a spot where the wires are slightly swelled up.These wires are only 18 gauge so it is not easy finding the bad spot.One thing you can try is pulling on the wires a little and sometimes they will separate where the bad spot is.Hope this helps.Good luck.

two clips hold the headlight in place at the top...remove these and the headlamp will move forward enabling you to replace the halogen bulb (9007 at CTC)
