Question about 1998 Dodge Intrepid
Not familiar with this car specifically, but for most cars. . .
If you remove the upper radiator hose (drain the coolant first), where the hose attaches to the engine, that fitting is held to the engine block with two or three bolts. It may also have a small bypass hose attached to it, remove that also. The thermostat is between the engine block and this housing.
Remove the housing, and scrape off any of the old gasket. There is usually a small groove in either the housing or the engine block, the thermostat fits into that groove and the gasket goes on the other side of it. Make sure you put the thermostat in the same direction as the old one, the "pointy" end goes toward the hose.
