You can replace the radiator yourself, but why do you need to? The thermostat is on the engine. Follow the large hose that goes to the engine block....not the water pump. The thermostat is under that or sits on the top of the engine....looking for a pic for you!

Ok first check the water pump and if that is ok sounds like the head gasket blown, look for water in the oi, thisl will be like a milky colour

i assume its a 4 cyl?? will this car ever overheat if just sitting idle? when it begins to overheat, hows the heat in the cab? sounds like maybe the radiator is partially clogged or restricted somehow. i would change the radiator cap and make sure the overflow is set to proper level. (incl. radiator level) i wouldnt jump to headgasket just yet, they are pretty durable from what ive seen

i had the same problem, my mate is a Toyota mechanic and started by checking the radiator cap pressure, as if it doesnt have enough pressure it will run out of the expansion tank and leak! So i changed that as it was bad. Then he changed the termostat and things have been good since.
