Hi Brad Nash,
Open the radiator cap when engine is cold and check if the coolant level is at the top of the neck. Is the reserve tank. That is the basics you need to check first instead of replacing the thermostat.
To do any repairs, we must try to determine what is the cause before proceeding, not replace then only ask why it is not working.
The radiator has two radiator hoses, one on top and the other and the lower end. Lower end is the lower hose, check where it ends at the engine, if you see a rounded portion where the hose ends, the thermostat shoild be under it.
