HelloCustomer my name isXXXXX you for choosing justanswer.com.

Couple quick questions for you while I pull up some diagrams:

-What size Engine? (2.4, 2.7, 3.0)
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
2.7
Expert:  JHoop replied 8 years ago.
Ok. The Thermostat is located inside the Thermostat Housing. If you follow the Radiator Hose up to the side of the Engine, it connects to the side of the Housing. You have to drain the Coolant, remove the Drive Belts, then remove the Hoses from the side of the Housing to get the Thermostat out.
