Follow you upper radiator hose and the hose will be attached to the thermostat housing. Its usually bolted down with 2 Screws. Once you unscrew those 2 screws lift it up and the thermostat should be in plain view. Make sure to replace the gaskets with the thermostat too.

I think the thermostat may be sticking on my sons 1994 Civic. I has new water pump, radiator and hoses. Could you tell me where the thermostat is located?

Follow the top radiator hose to where it connects to the thermostat housing. Remove the hose. There are 2 bolts holding the housing in place. The thermostat is mounted underneath the housing and can now be removed. To test the thermostat drop it in a cup of boiling water and it should open. Since it is not a very costly item you may as well change it once it's open. When replacing, the spring end points away from the hose.

Too much coolant in the radiator

no. you need to start looking for other issues, possibly a stuck thermostat. a good indication of this is the upper rad hose will be hotter then the lower hose. the thermostat is located at the engine end of the lower rad hose, in the aluminum housing. good luck!

Where is the thermostat located in my 1994 caprice classic?

To locate the thermostat follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it enters the engine. The thermostat is located below the coolant inlet that the hose is connected to.

To change it:

You're going to lose some coolant, so have a bucket or other container, and some fresh coolant ready. Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it's connected to the engine. The hose is clamped to a metal housing (water inlet) which is bolted to the engine. Remove the bolts (not the hose) and lift the housing to expose the thermostat (may require a little prying with a screwdriver or similar tool). Note how the old thermostat is fitted (which end is up), lift it out of the engine, and then remove all traces of gasket from the housing and the engine. Install the new thermostat and gasket, replace the bolts, add coolant as necessary, and you're done.

Before you start the job though, check the condition of your upper and lower radiator hoses. If they show any signs of wear, fraying, or fatigue, you might as well replace them too.

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive

Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.
