Install the thermostat (305).
Install the O-ring seal (304) and water outlet housing (303).
Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice.
Install the water outlet housing bolts (302).
Tighten the bolts to 15 N.m (11 lb ft)

The thermostat for your car is the water pump check out the diagrams BELOW to see what I am talking about.
