the thermostat is on the front right side just below the air tube (which you have to remove) in a black hard plastic case. It is a PAIN IN THE ARSE to get to, it will have 2 sensors sticking out of it, on on the bottom, one on the side.

Yes, All the years of the ZX2 utilize the same engine. 1998-2003 are all the same except for ECU programing and the MAF wiring. You should not have a problem.

Looking from the front of the car, start at the thermostat housing (where the top radiator hose goes) and go down from there. Located right next to the exhaust mannifold you'll see the hose going to the PCV valve.
