Follow the upper radiator hose to the motor. The hose will clamp onto a metal dome shaped cover. The thermostat is under that cover. Drain a few gallons of coolant, unbolt the housing, note how the thermostat is in the motor (there is a top and bottom), clean the old gasket off the hosing and motor, put in new thermostat and gasket, bolt the housing on...don't overtighten!!! Fill with coolant and if there is a screw on top of the housing, loosen the screw with engine running until coolant comes out bubble free.....retighten screw.

On a Jeep Grand Cherokee v6, the thermostat is located in the thermostat housing. The housing can be easily located by following the upper radiator hose to it.

The thermostat on a 1996 Jeep Cherokee is under the housing where the upper radiator hose attaches to the engine.

There is 2 of them and they are located on either side of the thermostat housing.
