The thermostat is a metal piece that is inside the upper radiator hose so you can not see it and it either works or it doesn't. It is sensitive to the temperature of the radiator (engine cooling) fluid. The part itself usually costs less than ten dollars at Murrays or Autozone with a new gasket. The only other "thermostat" on our 96 mystique is the dashboard circular black plastic button with color coded blue (cool) to red (heat). If the dashboard button does nothing when you turn for left (blue) to right (red) you might have a vacuum leak. Don't be afraid to take it to Murrays, Autozone, NAPA, or Federated Auto Parts (Ohio resident) and let them diagnose it for you. These guys love to fix things and sell you the part if they can. Good Luck. They will also use a "code checker" machine for FREE if you have a check engine (MIL) light lit up the dashboard.
