Just follow the upper radiator hose to the housing that it is connected to. Remove the radiator hose, and then the housing itself. The thermostat is under the housing. be sure to remove all the old gasket and install a new one when you put it back together.
Does the car run cool (normal operating range)? As the car coolant cools there is a small vacume created, should not colapse the upper hose unless it is very soft. Most thermostats have a small hole in them to keep an air lock from ocuring. Maybe you stats hole is pluged.
locate the thermostat housing.usally located at the other end of the top radiator hose.remove the two or three bolts holding it.if u havent drained sum fluid it will leakwhen u remove.have new gasket and thermostat handy pull old out an replace. thats it.When replaceing bolts DON'T over tighten its easy to crack thermostat houseing.replace the colant u lost make sure no leaks. parts are cheaps!!!should be pretty easy.
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...
