Best Answer

The thermostat can be found by following the top radiator hose to where it goes into the block. There is a little half-globe shaped metal housing called the thermostat housing. Within this housing is the thermostat. Almost all thermostats are held in by only two bolts. Remove them, and pull off the housing, and you will find the thermostat.
