Several steps are involved.

First, be sure that the engine is cold. Remove the radiator cap on the cold engine to remove all pressure. Then disconnect the car battery and take care that the car keys are not in the ignition switch. (Never start the engine during this process.) Remove the plug at the bottom of the radiator and remove the fluid, if the fluid is old dispose of it. Then remove the front grille of the van. Disconnect the radiator hoses from the radiator and the engine with a proper screwdriver. Examine for cracks and replace if necessary. Two main bolts hold the radiator in place with clamps at the sides, remove the bolts, then you can lift the radiator from the van using both hands, be careful not to strike tor dent he radiator against hard surfaces. Check the fan belt, replace if necessary.

Assembly: The reverse procedure of what is described above.

Replace the hoses or clamps if necessary, make sure the system is not leaking after filling up with proper anti - freeze or pure clean water. Test-drive, then check again for leaks, observe the temperature from the meter in the dashboard.

Find the top radiator hose and follow it from the radiator to the engine. The part that the radiator hose connects to is the thrermostat housing. It is usually held on by two bolts. Once you remove that the thermostat looks like a little flying saucer in there. Good luck.

Take it to an oil change place and have them do a cooling system flush immediately.

On my '87 Toyota van the resivor just slides off when you pull directly up on it... though im not sure if this is factory standard or a modification made by a previous(and possibly frustrated)owner of my van.

It is very simple to change the thermostat in a 2004 E 150 Van. The thermostat can be found by following the upper radiator hose. After the thermostat is found, disconnect the radiator hose and drain it. Then, you will remove the two bolts that are holding the thermostat housing place. Remove the old thermostat and replace it with a new one.
