The upper radiator hose is connected between the upper radiator and the thermostat housing. Drain the coolant then remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing, replace if necessary. Remove anything blocking access to the two bolts holding the housing to the engine such as the belt cover. Pay attention to the orientation of the thermostat so you install the new one correctly. If the housing is corroded or pitted you have have to replace it or suffer leaks. Push a rag into the engine opening now exposed and clean the contact surface well so it won't leak later. Installation is the reverse of the process.

The thermostat is located by the side of the cylinder block near the coolant inlet. Remove the coolant inlet housing after disconnecting cables and loosening the holding bolts. You will be able to remove the thermostat to replace it.,

To replace a thermostat on 1998 Silhouette, locate it under the top hose assembly inside the radiator. It is fairly easy to replace with the right tools.
