thermostat sits on the top of the intake and is under the upper radiator hose neck unfortunately if it has A/C its buried behind it as well as the alternator...getting it out is no issue but cleaning the gasket off the intake sucks ....so if you don't have the tools to scrape it clean you may have to remove the A/C compressor off to do so ...once done you will have to bleed the system when you fill it
