Engine Cooling problem 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles

I bought a new swith today form NAPA, and am having trouble finding it. Any ideas? I have the Haynes book, it says right rear corner of engine block, just below cylinder head. Only problem is that I dont know if by right side, they mean when youre sitting in it, or outside looking at it. I also do not really know what the cylinder head is.

HELP!

Hello,

It is usually located around the thermostat housing. Just follow the top radiator hose.
