Follow the upper radiator hose, and where it connects to the engine, is the cover for the thermostat. There should be two bolts that hold it on, and a seal that will come with the new thermostat. You'll want to clamp off the radiator hose before unhooking it, so it doesn't leak anywhere. Then remove the hose, take the thermostat cover off, and dry everything off. Put the new thermostat in just as the old one came out, put the new seal on where the old one was, and bolt down. Hook the hose back up, and check for leaks periodically for a couple of weeks.

best bet is to stop in at a Pep Boys, Autozone, or similar big autoparts seller, and ask for free trouble code scan, which should pinpoint area causing problem. If not obvious by codes, what is necessary to repair the problem code, get back to us with those codes and we will be glad to assist you further. Better this way, takes away the guess work, and saves you money, as well as getting it right the first time.

On your car I'm quite sure you open the hood and follow the upper radiator hose to a metal housing with 2 bolts on each side of the housing. Remove the upper radiator hose and anything else connected to the housing, remove the 2 bolts. The thermostat is located inside the housing.

It could be a number of things not only your t-stat but also an empty reserve tank and even your water pump could be bad. make sure to check all those things out before you go on a replacement spree.

Open the hood of the impla and locate the thermostat housing. Find the largest hose at the top of your radiator, then follow it until it connects onto a portion of the Impala's engine block. The piece that to which the hose connects is the removable thermostat housing.
Use a jack to raise the Impala off the ground, then settle it down onto jack stands. Make sure the car is in park and the emergency brake is on.
Place a large container under the Impala's radiator. Drain the radiator into the bucket by loosening the clamp on the lower coolant hose with a flat-blade screwdriver, then removing the hose entirely so that the coolant flows into the bucket. Once the coolant stops flowing, set the bucket aside.
Use the screwdriver to loosen the clamp on the coolant hose connecting to the thermostat housing, then remove the hose from the housing completely. This will give you access to the bolts securing the housing to the Impala's engen block
Use a wrench or ratchet and sockets to remove the bolts securing the housing to the engine block, then set them aside somewhere where you will not lose them. Loosen and remove the thermostat housing to reveal the thermostat.
Make a careful note of how the thermostat is oriented toward the Impala's engine block. You must install the new thermostat in the exact same way as the old one is installed. Remove and discard the old thermostat.
Use a scraper tool or a razor blade to remove any remaining bits of thermostat gasket from the bottom of the thermostat housing and from the engine block. It is important to get all the remains off; otherwise the new gasket will not seal properly.
Apply a layer of gasket sealant to the bottom of the Impala's thermostat housing, then press the new gasket against the sealant so that it sticks and makes a good seal.
Install the new thermostat in the manner you noted in Step 6, then replace the thermostat housing and secure it down with the bolts. Reconnect the hoses you disconnected--making sure that the clamps are tightened down so no coolant leaks--and refill the Impala's radiator with the coolant you drained out earlier. Use your jack to lower the Impala back to the ground.
