The thermostat is on the lower hose at the engine. Make sure all the air is purged out of the system and that the cooling fans work.

To purge air from system. Remove cap from overflow tank fill with antifreeze to full mark leave cap off and start vehicle and let idle once vehicle starts to reach operating temp thermostat starts to open level in tank will drop add more antifreeze to full mark then put cap back. Also you will notice level in tank start to rise this is normal until thermostat starts to open.
