On a typical vehicle, you follow the top hose from the radiator to the engine block. The housing where the hose connects to the engine block contains the thermostat.Remove 2-3 bolts and the housing prys off. Biggest problem is getting to the housing/bolts.

Check out the Chilton's repair manual at your local library (in the reference section) for more details.

AnswerIT IS USUALLY LOCATED WHERE THE UPPER RADIATOR HOSE GOES INTO THE ENGINE BLOCK. AnswerOn many cars (the 1990 v4 Camry in particular) the thermostat is behind the bottom hose. Either way, follow the top hose to the engine. If the area that the top hose connects to the engine looks like it can be taken off (the area should be no bigger than 2 or 3 full fists) then your thermostat is in that housing. If the hose connects directly to the engine (not some detachable housing) then the bottom hose is the one you are looking for, remove the housing at the engine end of the hose and your thermostat is there.. AnswerIt is in the radiator hose there are only 2 so it shouldn't be hard to find. AnswerHere you go:

The labor to replace a clutch on a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire can range from $670 to $850, depending on where you go. This does not include the cost of the clutch itself, which is roughly $800.
