The thermostat is located in a housing at the end of the water pump inlet pipe. The housing is on the fire wall side of the engine. The thermostat can be removed without removing the housing from the engine.

  1. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Disconnect the radiator hose from the thermostat housing outlet.
  3. Remove the thermostat housing outlet and remove the thermostat.
  4. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Use new gaskets and O-rings. Install the thermostat with the pin towards the thermostat housing outlet. Tighten the thermostat housing outlet bolts for 1984-91 models to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm), and tighten housing bolts for 1992-95 models to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm). Fill and bleed the cooling system.

Did you do the thermostat yourself, or did you have someone do it for you. The reason I am asking is that it may have been put in backwards? Other than that I would suspect your radiator needs flushed and cleaned. Water pumps generally leak at the pump location or you will hear a squeel out of the bearings You can check for flow through the radiator by letting it cool down and remove the radiator cap and watch the water in the radiator. If it is flowing then the pump is working. A car of this age could be either the radiator or pump, you will have to check to see if the coolant is flowing to determine the next step.
