Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine. The thermostat is located within the housing where the radiator hose connects tot he engine. Drain radiator, remove hose from thermostat housing, remove the bolts that fasten the housing to the engine and pull off housing, pull out thermostat noticing the direction it is pointing. Installation is reverse of removal (making sure thermostat is facing in the right direction). Refill radiator with 50/50 water/antifreeze solution.
