In almost every vehicle, the water thermostat is in a small pipe junction leading from the radiator with an casing called a thermostat housing. This junction may have several pipes or hoses leading from it. The casing may have a few bolts around it, which when removed carefully will reveal the thermostat which sits in a small recess loosely once the casing is removed. On some vehicles, the thermostat clips into place.

Take out and replace the thermostat and possibly replace the gasket the housing case had between it and the base if it was broken or worn with a small application of a gasket sealer compound. Return the casing and tighten the bolts up to hand tight, followed by a firm, but not overly tight quarter turn. If the casing does not seem to fit properly, make sure the thermostat is sitting in the recess correctly, the right way up and the casing fits over the top completely. Don't attempt to cut away any of the sealer compound if it has oozed out and dried, it may rupture the gasket or create a hairline leak. Instead, gently wipe away any excess sealer while it is still moist.

Replace any lost water in the radiator before attempting to run the engine. After you start the car, keep an eye on the thermostat housing for a few minutes and make sure there are no water leaks. Also, watch the temperature of the vehicles cooling system to make sure the thermostat was installed correctly. If overheating occurs, there may be a problem with the thermostat. The vehicle should be okay to drive immediately, but after a short drive, pop the hood and give the housing another look to make sure.
