Hi Branash, It is located in the front of the engine towards the top. If you follow the radiator hose it will lead you to the thermostat. There are two bolts that hold it in place. You can remove the bolts fairly easily and replace the thermostat. It is important that you make sure that everything is clean when you reassemble everything.
