    It's a good idea to get a repair manual if your going to work on your own vehicle, and it's never been easier or less expensive to get a good one for your vehicle. Try http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals or http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and you can have one in minutes, for less than $30.00.
    Read up on the job you are about to perform, it will show you what special tools you will need and you will be much better prepared to tackle any job on your vehicle.

    for a 2.3L
    remove the radiator, remove the front fan, , then you should see what looks like a 90 degree elbow running from the radiator hose, should be about 3 bolts to remove it, easy peasy.

    find the end of your top radiator hose you will find the water neck, loosen clamp and remove hose,there you will find two bolts holding the w.n remove the w.n. and you will find the thermostat. it should come out pretty easy replace with new thermostat and do reverse from installation....be sure to replace gasket
