Too many steps and little things you should know. Spend $10 and buy a repair manual for your car at any auto Parts Store. You have two choices, Hayne's or Chilton's. A rookie can do this with the proper guidance. Get the manual and go for it.

answer to remove thermostat dump coolant from engine remove top radiator hose from where it attaches to engine remove fitting,generally 2 or 3 bolts, where radiator hose attached this is called thermostat housing u will then see thermostat take notice of how the thermostat is seated as sometimes they can be installed upside down, upside down will not work correctly so then install proper temp new thermostat and new gasket reinstall thermostat housing' reattach radiator hose. refill engine and radiator with coolant start engine ,check for leaks if no leaks, job well done is easier than it sounds

Follow the upper radiator hose to where it meets the engine. Remove the two bolts of the thermostat housing and remove and replace the thermostat.

The thermostat is located on the top of the engine, where the top radiator hose is connected. The hose has to be disconnected, and the inlet on the engine is removed, with the thermostat underneath.
