Thanks dayshifter1 for all

Thanks dayshifter1 for all that detailed information about replacing the thermostat. My original problem was FINDING it, but I've got it now and can use those instructions! I couldn't find anything on the web with the actual LOCATION of the thermostat for this car. Thanks again.
