Answers :

Follow the top radiator hose to the thermostat housing (thermostat is inside that) ther should be 3 or 4 bolts. Take out those bolts ( drain radiator first) remove cover, pull out the thermostat, clean both ends where the gasket was, put in new thermostat with the spring side facing the engine, not the hose side, with new gasket.
\015\012 Fill radiator to about 1/2 an inch from top, or the container to full mark, leave the cap off
\015\012turn on heater to max, and fan on high, start engine
\015\012When you feel heat coming out put more coolant in to with in a 1/2 inch of top of radiator.
\015\012Hope this helped.
