The on the left side of the engine under the back of the alternator. You have to go through the wheel well to get to it. Stupid place to put it. It's not easy to get to.

SOURCE: thermostat for 318i 3 series E36

Follow the upper hose to the engine. The hose should be connected to the neck of the thermostat housing. Remove the housing and replace the thermostat. I suggest you buy the Chilton manual or equivalent for that car. That will help you a lot. Most parts stores have them or you can buy them online.

SOURCE: 1999 chevy cavalier keeps overheating,

these cars are notorious for that.It needs to be "burped" when your car is cold then open the resivoir(coolant).Start the car .As it warms you will notice the tank level will rise.Do not let it boil over!! when it starts to get warm then turn the car off and watch for bubbles in the resivior.add more coolant as the bubbles come out .repeat until no more bubbles come up.The problem with these cars is that an air pocket forms in the water pump.

Location of thermostat 2003 chevy cavalier 2.2l ecotech. Didn't know they could do such a good job of concealing this device. Felt stupid in front of my son who thinks I know everything.

Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the housing it attaches to on the block. Remove the bolts on the housing and there it should be. Don't feel stupid, everything is crammed in to newer cars. If you think that is bad, try finding one on an Acura Integra. Please rate me on this answer.
