Default Where is my thermostat on a 97 Honda Accord? (non-vtec)

I'm trying to change the thermost to track down a overheating problem, i disconnected the upper radiator hose, but no signs of the thermstat. Where is it on these cars? I have a 97 accord, 4 cylinder, not vtec.

Top of the page, click on Accord FAQ link, its the first link. Not hard, just time consuming.

make sure u have the right tools. the hardest thing is removing the crank bolt (181 lbs/ft) and tensioning the timing belt (kinda tricky EricTheCarGuy has a good video showing a Honda B16 engine) basically TB/WP would be a 8-10/10 as the hardest thing to be done on a car anything else will seem easy compared

p.s. if u do attempt a TB/WP make sure u follow the correct technique removing the crank bolt. UP to DOWN as seen in numerous youtube videos.

Here's a link to Eric The Car Guy. I did the head gasket on my 95 Accord LX 6 months ago and used this video to do the belts, water pump, etc. Best 16 bucks I've ever spent. My 95 has two belts--a timing belt and and balancer belt. O'Reilly's has the loaner tool to remove the crank pulley bolt. That bad boy is tough to get off sometimes. I had to use a six foot cheater bar and my big ol 230 lb. butt to break it loose. You need some good tools, jack, and safety stands. I bought all my parts from Rock Auto. Replaced the tensionsers, spring, belts, water pump, etc. Yep, time consuming. VManuals Store - Eric The Car Guy- Stay Dirty! Enjoy and take a few beverage breaks.
