at the end of the top radiator house is the thermostat housing. Drain coolant to level below the top hose. Remove top hose and the two bolts that hold housing. Remove the housing from the block.Do NOT pry it. If you need to, gently tap it with a rubber mallet. Pull out the old thermostat. Make sure to use a gasket scraper to remove all traces of gasket from the engine and the housing. Replace the new thermostat, then the gasket with sealer. Replace the housing and tighten to specifications. Do NOT overtighten or you will strip and leak.. Replace hose and clamp. Refill with coolant and start and check for leaks. Before reinstalling the bolts, clean out the bolt holes and threads with a tap.
