Hmm. None of the images show what/where the actual Thermostat is. (I would guess in a housing or something) That would be really helpful, don't you think? Can you describe where it is located maybe? I gathered that it is in something else - duh - but not sure which/what something else that is? Then, after I remove the themostat and put new one in, and put everything back together, what are steps I have to take to make sure I don't f something else up?

Hello and welcome to Justanswer,


My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to assist you with your question.

If you follow the upper hose hose from the radiator, to the engine where is connects you will see the housing. What part are you confused with?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Details, that's what. Never mind. Found my Hayne's Manual in a box of junk AND found a great description of the process on eHow by Marion Cobretti. Between the 2 I can work it out. Suggestion: your images aren't really that great, could be better labeled. I don't want to scr*w you guys, but seems like I am more frustrated after reading your flip quickie responses than I was before I asked for help.
