Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine and there is a housing there with the thermostat.Take the housing off and reokace the thermostat with the spring toward the engine. goodluckjoe

Answer

Just got done doing the same thing on my 1995 SE. Easy as pie, helped to remove the battery and followed hose as above. The thermostat is housed in a three way unit. Just unscrew the two nuts, and voila! Lost about a pint of fluid, mostly spilled out when I took out the thermostat, so if you have it in hand, you can pop it in rather quickly and replace rubber gasket with out having to buy a new one.

"reokace" is not a known word to me. Locate? Replace? Reposition? So far, this is meaningless.

It should be located on the top of the thermostat housing just at the right hand end of the engine. I am assuming that you are looking for the guage sensor.

the thermostat is located behind the water pump. there are 2 8mm bolts holding it in. unscrew, pull old thermostat out, put new one in and put back together. Simple - 9 I would have given it a 10 but the bottom bolt can be a pin to get to.
