On most vehicles it is inside the goose neck. An easy way to find it. Look at the top of your radiator, there will be a top radiator hose, this hose goes to the goose neck. You will need to remove the radiator hose, this usually has a clamp holding it tight. The goose neck usually has only 2 bolts. Remove them, wiggle the goose neck and under neath it, or inside it is your thermostat. ABOVE ALL MAKE SURE THE ENGINE IS COLD, IF NOT YOU COULD BURN YOURSELF OR MAYBE WORSE!
