The thermostat on your vehicle is located below the throttle body, on the top side of the engine. The hose from the radiator will be connected to its housing, and will likely need to be removed in order to gain access to the thermostat. Most vehicles like yours will have one large radiator hose, and three smaller hoses, that are running to housing. The housing should also have three bolts that are holding it into place. If this is something you feel you could use a hand in locating/repairing, consult a certified mechanic, like those available at YourMechanic.com.
