    OK, first, you have to be kidding. If you have no knowledge or tools, DON’T try. I’m sure someone in your “circle” of friends can do it for you. If not, take it to a shop and have it done properly (won’t cost much.)

    Follow the top radiator hose to the engine block, it ends at the thermostat housing. Mine is a 5/8 ths bolt on my 95. You will also need a screwdriver for the hose clamp, possibly a scraper to scrape off the old gasket if there is one, the new thermostat, gasket and new coolant. I would replace the upper hose while I was at it.
