This answer was rated:

is installing a themostat a DIY job, or do I need to take it to the mechanic? need a thermostat, a gasket (both you can get from the parts store) and the appropriate size wrench. You simply remove the housing for the thermostat...clean the surfaces and install the new gasket and thermostat.

1/2 hour job.

P Simmons,
thanks for your answer, however I have already ordered the Thermostat and no gasket, can I use the old gasket when I undo the faulty thermostat?
Depends...if you have pulled it and its clean, then with some gasket sealer perhaps...but always best to use a new one.
