More info PLEASE! Is your sport sedan a V6 or 4 cylinder???? Okay, lets assume it it a 4 cylinder.....Look for the vacuum pump...got it?...behind the vacuum pump toward the firewal on the engine, look down you will see the housing...3 bolts in a triangle...with a house attached. Now for a V6... I suggest that unless you have a technicians set of tools and are very mechanically inclined you DON'T go there... But, if you insist... remove the intake plenum and unbolt the oil dip-stick tube. The t-stat is in the valley near the timing belt. You will have to replace the upper radiator aluminum tube (because it will break when trying to remove it from the t-stat housing) hence the unbolting of the oil dip-stick tube, and replace the t-stat. Remember to "burp" te system when you are finished with eiter V6 or 4.... Good Luck...
