With the engine cool, press down on the radiator cap & turn it to the left (counterclockwise; righty tighty, lefty loosey). If you try this with the engine hot, the cooling system is under pressure & will spew hot liquids everwhere & will burn you.

1997 Mazda 626 thermostat where is it located?

I just replaced the thermostat on my 94 626. It is located on the back of the engine where the radiator hose from the bottom of the radiator enters the engine, which is opposite from most engines. You probably need to take off the the end of the air hose going from the filter box to the injector manifold. Then just remove the two 10 mm bolts holding the hose to the engine and you will see the thermostat. Good luck
