Suck on itok, the thermo is not that hard to change, i managed to do it on my 87 crx si without issue. The thing that got me was the thermostat is located at the lower radiator hose not the top. Remove the lower rad hose from its engine fitting, undo the two 10mm bolts that hold the thermostat housing into the engine and pull off the thermostat housing. the thermostat will be facing you so just grab and pull. The gasket is usually re-usable and costs 14$ at Canadian tire. Re-attach the gasket to the new thermo and use gasket sealant to put it back in the hole. reattach the thermo housing bolts then open the air valve to bleed the system. Close the air valve once water comes out and refill the rad.

Youve just redone the thermostat

Just a note: I had a buddy who wanted to help. so he tightened the thermostat housing and cracked it. the torque specs for my '90 was 13 ft/lbs or so. It should be around the same for the 89. Just don't reef on the housing bolts.

The temperature gauge sending unit, located on a 1989 Honda Accord LXI is located on the thermostat. It is the small connection with a single wire sticking out of it.

The thermostat is located at the back of the engine near where the radiator hoses attach. There is a housing held in by two bolts. It may be necessary to remove the air cleaner housing to access it. The new thermostat from Honda comes with the gasket and can only be installed one way (with the pin up).

your thermostat should be located on the drivers side of the engine underneath the distributor behind the inlet for the bottom hose. remove the two nuts and pull the inlet off.

AnswerBy following the lower radiator hose that goes in to the back of engine you will find the thermostat housing. The temperature sensor is located there too for the 1992 1.5 (1.6) liter engine and many newer ones. Should you need to replace the temperature sensor in a motor prior to 1992, it is located under the distributor on the head closer to the firewall than the radiator.

The thermostat on a 1989 Nissan Sentra is on the front of the motor to the left. It is just below where the valve cover meets top of the manifold. The thermostat is enclosed in the radiator hose at that location.
