Normally under a bolt on cover where the top hose meets the cylinder head or built into a housing along the top hose.

Follow the upper rad hose from the rad to the engine and it is in a housing there. When you replace it make sure the spring goes toward the engine.

Depending on make and model, it could be under the housing where either the upper or lower radiator attaches to the engine. Example: Dodge 2.7L, 3.7L, and 4.7L it is under the lower.

Take your thermostat out and put everything back together, run your car without a thermostat... If your car no longer overheats, replace your thermostat.

no, the thermostat would have nothing to do with the car not starting.
