The car in this answer is a 97 Accord, four door, four cylinder.

Locate the thermostat by following the bottom hose of the radiator

(the standard is to follow the top, however it is not there) it

should lead toward the back of the engine compartment. The hose

will connect to a joint connected to the block, this where you will

remove the hose (catch the fluid in something a pan on the ground

is easiest) feeling inside the port of the block you should find

the thermostat. Remove the two bolts holding the joint to the

block, the bottom of the two is the most difficult, I move a few

things out of the way, pull out the old stat, line up the new one

(it's an off-center type) put it in don't forget the new gasket,

refill the system with fluid and check and test.
