You didn't specify 4 or 6 cylinder so here's what I got: .5L, 1.6L, 1.8L (except K8) and 2.2L Engines

See Figures 1 and 2 # Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the radiator to below the level of the thermostat. # If necessary, remove the air cleaner assembly. # If necessary, disconnect the coolant temperature switch at the thermostat housing. Fig. 1: Exploded view of the thermostat assembly for the 1.5L, 1.6L and 1.8L (except K8) engines

Fig. 2: Exploded view of the thermostat assembly for the 2.2L engine

# Remove the upper radiator hose. # Remove the mounting nuts, thermostat housing, thermostat and gasket. Do not pry the housing off. To install:

# Clean the thermostat housing and the cylinder head mating surfaces. # Insert the thermostat into the rear cylinder head housing with the jiggle pin at the top. The spring side of the thermostat should face the housing. # Position a new gasket onto the studs with the seal print side facing the rear cylinder housing. # Install the thermostat housing and 2 nuts. Tighten the nuts to 14-22 ft. lbs. (19-5 Nm). # Install the upper radiator hose. # If detached, connect the coolant temperature switch. # If removed, install the air cleaner housing. # Fill the cooling system. Connect the negative battery cable, start the engine and check for leaks. Check the coolant level and add coolant, as necessary. 2.0L Engine

See Figures 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 # Disconnect the negative battery cable. # Drain the engine coolant from the radiator to below the level of the thermostat. Fig. 3: To remove the thermostat, first drain the cooling system, then remove the radiator hose-to-thermostat housing cover clamp ...

Fig. 4: ... by sliding back on the hose. Note the alignment marks on the hose and housing cover (arrows)

Fig. 7: ... then remove them ...

Fig. 8: ... along with the housing cover/water outlet

Fig. 9: Remove the thermostat from the housing by simply pulling it outward

Fig. 10: When installing the new thermostat, note the tab (arrow) which seats into a notch in the housing. Jiggle pin must face straight up

# Disconnect the lower radiator hose from the engine. # Remove the housing bolts, thermostat housing, thermostat and gasket. Do not pry the housing off. To install:

# Clean the thermostat housing and the cylinder head mating surfaces. # Make sure that the thermostat jiggle pin is aligned with the gasket projection. # Install the thermostat to the housing. Align the gasket projection with the opening in the housing. The spring side of the thermostat should face into the housing. # Install the thermostat housing cover and tighten both bolts to 14-19 ft. lbs. (19-25 Nm). # Fill the cooling system. Connect the negative battery cable, start the engine and check for leaks. Check the coolant level and add coolant, as necessary. 1.8L DOHC (K8) and 2.5L Engines

See Figure 11 # Disconnect the negative battery cable. # Drain the engine coolant from the radiator to below the level of the thermostat. # Remove the water outlet pipe mounting bolt and detach the pipe from the outlet housing. Remove and discard the O-ring. Fig. 11: Exploded view of the thermostat assembly for the 1.8L (K8) and 2.5L engines

# Remove the engine harness bracket bolt and position the harness aside. # Remove the housing bolt, thermostat housing, thermostat and gasket. Do not pry the housing off. To install:

# Clean the thermostat housing and the cylinder head mating surfaces. # Insert the thermostat into the housing with the jiggle pin at the top. The spring side of the thermostat should face the housing. # Position a new gasket with the projection facing the same direction as the thermostat jiggle pin. # Install the thermostat housing cover and loosely install the lower bolt. Install the engine harness bracket and loosely install the bolt. Tighten both bolts to 14-19 ft. lbs. (19-25 Nm). # Position a new O-ring onto the water pipe and wet the O-ring with fresh engine coolant. # Install the pipe to the outlet housing, using care to not rip or otherwise damage the O-ring, and install the mounting bolt. Tighten the mounting bolt to 14-19 ft. lbs. (19-25 Nm). # Fill the cooling system. Connect the negative battery cable, start the engine and check for leaks. Check the coolant level and add coolant, as necessary. 2.3L Engine

See Figure 12 # Disconnect the negative battery cable. # Drain the engine coolant from the radiator to below the level of the thermostat. # Remove the charge air cooler air duct. Fig. 12: Exploded view of the thermostat assembly for the 2.3L engine. Also shown are the removed components for thermostat access

# Remove the air cleaner housing. # Remove the resonator. # Remove the two thermostat housing bolts, the housing and the thermostat. To install:

# Thoroughly clean the thermostat housing and cylinder head mating surfaces. # Position the thermostat on the housing and align the projection on the thermostat to the notch in the housing. # Position the housing/thermostat assembly to the cylinder head and install the two retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts to 14-18 ft. lbs. (19-25 Nm). # Install the resonator, air cleaner housing and air duct assemblies. Tighten all attaching bolts to 70-95 inch lbs. (8-11 Nm). # Fill the cooling system. Connect the negative battery cable, start the engine and check for leaks. Check the coolant level and add coolant, as necessary.

yes, it is located where the lower radiator hose meets the engine block

The thermostat is located on the front left of the motor facing the radiator(Almost directly below the radiator cap). The lower radiator hose is attached to the thermostat housing.

located in the lower radiator hose where it meets the engine block. There is a bracket with 2 screws in it covering the thermostat to hold it in place. Remove the screws and remove the thermostat

According to Haynes Repair Manual #61042 for the years 1993 thur 2001 fot the Mazda 626 & MX-6 Ford Probe the engine thermostat is located on the driver's side of the engine compartment under the air breather. It is necessary to disconnect the ram-air hose & remove the air-filter compartment to reach the thermostat. The thermostat is held in place by two bolts & an "O" ring gasket. I had to replace mine & is took a "little while" to remove everything to get to the thermostat, replace the thermostat & then replace everything back in place as it was before.

Look in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose

I replaced mine about a week ago. Follow the top hose coming from the radiator to a housing unit with 2 bolts. The thermostat is inside the housing.

The thermostat housing on the 1998 Mazda 626 6 cylinder is located underneath the air filter housing. You need to remove this air filter housing to get to the thermostat housing. There's two (2) bolts the left connecting the thermostat housing to the motor and another two (2) bolts facing the steering wheel connecting it to the engine. This is where the thermostat is housed.

I have a 98 626es v6, thermostat is located under air filter housing on the right side of the engine if you are standing at the front of the car facing the engine

one is located in the exhaust pipe under the manifold the other is located behind the catalytic converter in exhaust pipe.

It is located at the engine at the upper rad hose, When you replace it, make sure the spring goes toward the engine.

Follow the top radiator hose down to the water outlet on the engine; it is in the water outlet. Mark
