Default thermostat on 2001 ranger edge 4.0

well, I am famillar with old cars and thermostats.
On this 2001 4.0 sohc seems like there is a lot of stuff in the way to get to the thermostat.
Unless I dont know where the thermostat is anymore lack of brain cells

If I am not correct please let me know. I would say it is under the water neck like on any other motor ...top radiator hose leads to it.


but what do you have to remove to get that housingoff I have never worked on a this new of a vehicle before and all this fuel injected throttle body stuff is greek.

if you have pics would be way cool
I just dont want to take all the throttle stuff off if I do not have too.
thanks in advance

thanks,
I think I can now over come my fear... being I just got this and seems like the thermostat is not opening top hose not getting hot and also not getting pressurized, I guess the cap could be faulty too

any advise should I try cap first?
