Start by draing the coolant from the radiator.(There is a drain valve on the bottom.)Follow the upper rad hose from the radiator to the engine, where it meets the engine is a bulb shaped aluminum housing that is held down with two bolts. This is the thermostat housing. Remove the bolts and gently pry the housing away from the engine. You do not need to remove the hose. inside the housing you will find the thermostat. Pull the thermostat out of the engine and drop in the new one. You will also need to replace the gasket between the housing and the engine.(usually comes with the new thermostat) Good Luck!

The thermostat is located on top of the water pump. Remove the old thermostat by removing the hose and two (2) bolts. Clean the area around the "throat" to remove the old gasket. Reverse the process by installing a new thermostat.

To replace the thermostat on a 1998 Cadillac, locate the area you will be working in. The thermostat is located at the rear of the engine on the drivers side. Then locate the upper hose. Remove the upper hose from the housing and disconnect the unit. You can then safely replace the thermostat piece.
