What year, model, and engine?
Usually the thermostat is on top of the engine, near the front, and has 3 bolts holding it down. It has the radiator hose going to this cover.

Location of thermostate on engine

You're going to lose some coolant, so have a bucket or other container ready. Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it's connected to the engine. The hose is clamped to a metal housing 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.

make sure engine is cool then drain coolant by opening the drain plug at bottom of radiator. remove cap from radiator so coolant will continue to drain and when coolant is down enough to pull off upper radiator hose at intake then close drain, then remove two bolts at coolant housing and remove thermostate. clean gasket material from intake and housing and replace with new gasket and thermostate tighten bolts install hose fill rad with coolant water mix 50/50 and run engine with heat on floor until gets hot and you see coolant flowing in rad, install cap

your thermostate is probably on the block sideways in whitch case you need to remove the air filter outr of your way and loosen the clamp on the thermostate housing. from there take out the 3 bolts holding the thermostat housing in place and remove it. Caution water/antifreeze will come out. take the thermostate out watching where the gasket has been placed and install the new one after cleaning the suface of the old gasket. sometimes it is good to use indian head gasket sealer. there will be 2 bolts on top and 1 bolt on the bottom under the housing. install the new thermostate tightn the hose replace your filter and fill the over flow resivor only to the point on COLD MAX. take the cap off the radiator start the car wait for the thermostate to open and fill the raditor the rest the way up. if it starts to boil over just shut the car off and let it cool than add more water *** needed...
