Okay, so a person who admits NOT being a mechanic who works on their own brakes but does not know how to replace a thermostat... is this a vehicle you would want to ride in? Yes, let the pros handle it.

The top radiator hose is to the left. and it seems the thermostat is right there. am I right ?
Following instructions 101... make sure the instructions you have are germane to your vehicle.
