Find the inlet hose on the radiator which should be on the upper driver side, trace it back to where it connects up to the engine block, remove the hose from the engine and you will see the thermostat, before semoving the old thermostat make sure you have a new gasket so the system will not leak.

Location of thermostat in Dodge Dakota 2000 4x4, 6cylinder, 3.9

The thermostat is located on the rightside of the truck as viewed from the drivers seat. Follow the upper rad hose it connects to the thermostat housing. A good way to check if the thermostat is stuck is when the motor running and fully warmed up squeeze the hoses if it is hard then the thermostat is stuck. Another way is with the motor hot feel if the upper rad hose is hot; if it's not then your thermostat is stuck. Hope this helps.

Thermostat, location. I need to replace it but i'm not much of a mechanic. About where on the motor is it located. I think i know but before i loosen anything i want to make sure. Also if the hose looks...

The thermostat is virtually always on the engine end of the upper radiator hose, often under a housing that the hose clamps onto. The water that flows through the upper hose is virtually always the water that the thermostat is allowing to leave the engine and go to the radiator for cooling.

Where is the location of a thermostat on a bmw

Follow the top hose off the radiator until it goes into the motor. THe housing where the hose connects to the motor is where the thermostat is. You'll need to remove the housing and pop the thermostat out. Make sure the old gasket is completely cleaned off before installing the new one.

The thermostat is located in the water pump next to the 2 heater hoses. I think you have to buy the housing to get a thermostat. Not serviced seperately.
