Where do I find the thermostat on a 96 Honda CRV 2 Litre

Is it where the top Raditor hose goes into the engine block?
Or is it where the bottom Raditor Hose feeds into what looks like a heater feeder intersection. poor, discription I know.
I need to replace as engine runs on cold a lot of the time.

Thermostate location for 1997 honda crv

Follow bottom radiator hose from the radiator to the engine block, thermostat is there, it takes a short 10 mm 3/8 drive socket to remove the bottom bolt, and a 10 mm wrench to remove the top bolt. Drain the radiator first in a clean bucket, so you can reuse the coolant, then take the breather hose off the fuel injection body, then once you have removed the two bolts off the goose neck, you may be able to pry it apart at the top between the two cast pieces, you will also need to remove the ground screw on the housing, and the radiator hose attached to it, make sure you put the thermostat in the same way you took it out, the thermostat goes between the gasket, take very little gasket compound and put it on the goose neck , this will help keep the thermostat in place when putting back together, be sure you have all the hoses hooked back up and its snug, also the hose going to the injection body, put your antifreeze back in the radiator first them fill the coolant jug just past max run the car till the radiator fan turns on then turn it off and let cool for a bit and repeat until you have all the air out of the system and the coolant jug it filled to max as it runs to operating temperature! you will have to buy an extra 2 gallons of prestone antifreeze, because you'll have lost some from taking the goose neck off the thermostat housing! Good Luck!

Where exactly is the thermostat located on 1999 pontiac sunfire 2.2 litre engine?

It will be at one of the ends of the radiator hoses going into the engine block. You should only have two hoses going into the engine from the radiator; one is a send hose for antifreeze and the other is a return hose. My '96 has a note stamped into the block at the top hose that says something to the effect of "thermostat not here".

Take a close look at yours.

Over heating

The thermostat is right on the lower radiator hose, where the lower hose goes into engine. If you look at bottom of radiator you see two wires and a nut that is the thermostat.
