Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
The thermostat on this vehicle is located behind the timing cover and the timing cover has to be removed in order to replace this, this is a very entailed job.

I DID NOT RATE YOU AS EXCELLENT SERVICE LIARS! I REMOVED THE TIMING COVER AND FOUND NO THERMOSTAT. I DID HOWEVER NOTE THAT THE CAM-BELT WAS STRETCHED BEYOND THE COMPENSATING RANGE OF THE ENCLOSED COIL-SPRING-TENSIONED ROLLER. I THEREFORE REPLACED THE TIMING BELT (I AM NEITHER DOPE NOR NOVICE). IN THE INTERIM, I HAVE PARTLY SCREENED THE RADIATOR (WHICH IS THE LARGER MATRIX BEHIND THE AIR-CON CHILLER MATRIX) UNTIL SUCH TIME AS I CAN FIND SOMEONE WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT!

Positive rating for duff information? Certainly not. You may as well say the thermostat is located in the engine bay, perhaps attached to the cooling system.
