Question about 1994 Toyota Camry
1994 Toyota Camry 2.2L EFI DOHC 4cyl
On both diesel and gasoline engines, the thermostat is located in the water inlet housing connected to the lower radiator hose.
CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

The thermostat is located in a housing mounted on the engine at the end of your upper radiator hose.
Drain some of the coolant from the radiator to a level lower than the thermostat housing.
Undo the radiator hose from the housing and lift the end upward to drain the coolant in the hose back into the radiator... hey if it spills it's ok.
Loosen and gently remove the thermostat housing. It has a gasket so it might be stubborn but please be careful not to get too aggressive, it could break.
Note the position of the thermostat. POut your new one in correctly... not backwards.
Scrape the old gasket from the housing and apply the new one that should come with your new thermostat.
Reassemble the housing (don't over tighten and break it).
Reconnect the radiator hose.
Refill the coolant.
Crank her up and let her warm up... check for leaks.
You're good to go.
It's a relatively easy project... Hope this helps.

Trace the upper radiator hose to the mounting area on the intake manifold. Loosen the hose clamp on the manifold end of the hose and remove the hose. Pull the thermostat out of the intake manifold.
