Drain the coolant from your radiator, at least half way. The remove the upper radiator hose. Remove the thermostat housing. Now you can remove the thermostat. Make sure you clean all the old gasket off of the the housing and manifold. Then install the new thermostat, a new gasket )I also recommend using some rtv or gasket sealant to prep the gasket) and the thermostat housing. Then hook your hose back up. remove the radiator cap and refill your radiator. Make sure to use a 50/50 mixture antifreeze.

How do you replace termostat?

Thermostat. First, drain the radiator at least part way so the coolant level is below the thermostat housing. In most motors, it is where the top radiator hose connects to the motor. There is a dome over it with two or three bolts holding it down. Take the bolts out and gently pry the dome off. Some have a rubber gasket around the thermostat and will just lift off. If there is a paper gasket under the dome, clean it and the top of the motor of the old gasket, replace the thermostat and gasket using gasket sealer on both sides of the gasket. Put the dome back on and refill the radiator.
