to supplement what everyone else said after replacement put a wire tie or radiator hose clamp around hose where t-stat is located to keep it from wandering up and down the hose.

Easiest way to find it is start squeezing on the hose. If you find a hard spot its got one in it. No hard spot, not t-stat.
