The Thermostat is not located in the conventional position at top off engine, but rather is at the bottom right side of engine "copilots side". Follow lower radiator hose to where it attachs to engine. Probable don't need a new gasket as it is reusably. You will loose all the antifreeze in the radiater unless you collect it. Install thermostat, refill with NEW antifreeze from top radiator hose into radiator and in cooling tank. Bring engine up to operatiing temperature and wait till fan comes on so that you know its hot. Make sure tank is full, add as needed. Then open air bleed screw at top of engine where upper radiator attaches to. Keep open until all air is out of system. DON"T BURN YOURSELF. Use a short hose attached to bleed screw and a small bottle to catch antifreeze. Hose should be at bottom of bottle with some antifeeze in it. You will see air bubbling out. Once all air is out and there is a steady stream, close bleed screw. After a few days of driving, bleed air out again.

It is not a direct swap. They use different transmissions, computers, wiring, etc.
