Hi Forum!
This just happened. Pulled car over and left it at a friend's driveway.
Can someone tell me where the thermostat is located?
Belt is good. Haven't checked into anything else yet.

Check coolant level. You may have a leak. Thermostat should be to the right of the water pump.

Thank you Traxy.
Followed your advice. Got the car home, no coolant. Filled just a bit with water for diagnostic purposes and
I can make out a leak in the area of the water pump. Hard to see without taking the air box and motor mount out.
Not sure if it is the pump or something else.
Anyone dealt with a similar problem?
Has anyone changed out their water pump at home?

I changed mine last year, not a very big job but you have to follow a weird torque procedure for the bolts. Mine had a casting flaw where it eventually cracked right where the thermostat housing connects.

Thank you Traxy.
I am going to do it this upcoming weekend. I am ordering a Gates pump. Need to get some tools (Torx sockets). Where can I find those torque specs.
