If you follow the upper radiator hose back to where it enters the engine block, the thermostat will be located here. Removing the bolts for the thermostat housing should allow you to lift it off and access the thermostat. Make sure to replace the thermostat gasket at the same time you do the thermostat in order to avoid leakage.
