Hello Wayne...the thermostat on your truck is located on the engine under the thermostat houseing. It is positioned in a fairly tight place. It can be replace with regular hand tools, ratchet extension, swivel socket and wrench. Follow the radiator hose to the thermostat houseing to locate. I suggest you replace it with a Nissan thermostat, they seem to last longer than an aftermarket, and come with a new houseing. Enclosed is a picture of the houseing you will be removing.
Make CERTAIN you install the new thermostat in the correct position...if installed backwards it will NEVER open and your engine will overheat in minutes possibly causeing severe damage.
Good luck..i hope this helps, please take time to rate me a fixya.

I've had problems with Datsun (later Nissan) engines hanging the closed thermostat until it boiled, then the thermostat released and operated normally. If you increase the small vent hole in the thermostat valve plate a small amount, the problem disappears. It seems that steam from engine operation gathers behind the thermostat sensing bulb and delays opening. The increase in vent hole size lets the steam through and allows the hot water to open the valve. Hope this helps!
