Should be located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose

On the 2.7 motor the thermostat is located at the engine side of the lower radiator hose. It's a difficult job to change, the alternator a/c compressor and bracket need to be removed, at least unbolted and moved aside, and they have to be accessed from the passenger side inner fender as well as from under the hood. If you also remove the dipstick be sure to cover the hole so anti freeze can't get into the oilpan. I just unbolted the dipstick and moved it away without pulling it out to avoid that. Upon finishing I also had a problem with air pockets in the system when refilling with anti-freeze, the system must be bled well.
