Hello. The thermostat is located inside the housing opposite the engine water pump. The radiator hose and housing must be removed to gain access and new coolant should be added when the work is done. I recommend having an expert inspect the problem before replacing any parts. A certified technician from YourMechanic can diagnose the overheating issue and make the appropriate repairs to have this fixed.
