How do I replace the thermostate on a 1993 Toyota Camry?

My '93 Camry is overheating. I'm not exactly sure what is causing it to overheat. I was told it was the water outlet cap. Changed it yesterday and it's still overheating. I wanted to change the thermostat myself that way I don't have to pay a mechanic for something that may not be the problem. I don't know if it's the thermostat, the water pump or the head gasket. If anyone can supply any info i.e. links, photos, whatever, I'd appreciate it. By the way it's a V6 if that makes any difference. Thanks.How do I replace the thermostate on a 1993 Toyota Camry?
i own a repair shop,,in Tennessee,and i repair a lot of Honda,s and from what you have described to me,,it could be the water pump,or the thermostat,,to find and change the thermostat you just follow the top radiator hose down to the motor,and there you.ll see a housing that it is attached to,and two or three bolts that hold it to the engine,remove them,and the thermostat is under the housing,,be sure and drain some of the coolant from it or it will run out when you remove the housing,also be sure and clean all the old gasket off,and put a new one one with the new thermostat and make sure you replace the thermostat in like the old one was,and don't over tighten the bolts that hold the housing on,,and re-fill the system,and your done,,good luck,i hope this help,s.How do I replace the thermostate on a 1993 Toyota Camry?

just follow the upper radiator hose to the block the piece that the hose goes to is the thermostat housing. Should just be a couple screws and that piece pops off and there is the thermostat. Make sure you get a new gasket with the new thermostat. GOOD LUCK!!!How do I replace the thermostate on a 1993 Toyota Camry?
I agree you should actually take it in and find out and solve the problem rather than keep replacing parts. It could be a number of things that a good mechanic could find quickly and easily.

If you still want to change the thermostat, put a catch basin under the radiator and let out some of the antifreeze. Don't let it dump on the ground, it's toxic. Follow the top hose to the thermostat housing, remove the hose clamp and hose. Remove the two bolts, take out the old thermostat and clean off any gasket material. Put a new thermostat and gasket in place, put the bolts back in, put the hose on, refill and test for leaks.How do I replace the thermostate on a 1993 Toyota Camry?
the thermostat is fairly easy to replace. trace your top radiator hose to your motor , its connected to the housing where the thermostat is located, usually only two bolts hold this. make sure u put the new one in the right way and replace the gasket. also make sure u scrape off all the old gasket too. also make sure your fan or fans are coming on, these do go out, and usually when one quits, the other isnt enough to keep it cooled.hope this helps.How do I replace the thermostate on a 1993 Toyota Camry?
If your not sure of what you are doing you might be better off taking it to professional. What you trying to do is to solve your problem piece by piece and that would probably cost more in the long run that taking it to the mechanic in the first place. There are many more reasons as to why a vehicle would overheat other than the thermostat or water pump. A mechanic has a number of options and tools available to him to quickly diagnose an overhating problem. It can be as simple as replacing the thermostat to the cooling passages in your motor being blocked. One is a $10.00 self repair, the other is a repair that will cost you more than you car is worth. Good luck. If you insist on going the self help route buy a Clymers repair manual for your specific car. It is pretty detailed in the how to field.
