The thermostat is located where the lower radiator hose goes into the engine. I've had to replace mine, and it took a while to find it. I found the easiest way to get at it is to remove the power steering pump (hoses attached) and set it over to the side to get at the bolts on the thermostat housing.

this indicates that you have a blown head gasket. you may not have water in the oil pan but it's because the water is not leaking into your oil galleys,but instead leaking into the cylinders and being burned hence the white smoke.. there is a big myth that you will get water in the oil with a blown head gasket . there might be trace amounts but the only time you get water in the oil is if the heads crack or the block cracks othere wise most times it's just getting burnt in the cylinders,hence the great amount of white smoke. please rate this thanks.

Not sure about the 95, but to remove it on my 94 i just pulled on once corner till the fastener poped out, then worked slowly around removing each fastener. Be careful as the the door pannel is quite flimsy but if the 95 is the same as the 94 it should be fairly easy to remove.

mkimdaly: There is a product on the market called "Restore" which is an oil additive designed specifically for high mileage engines with oil consumption and smoking problems. Mind you, it will not fix evey situation, but it has resolved quite a few on cars which have come through my shop. "Mechanic in a can".
If I am not mistaken, it is designed to fill in small scratches that may be in the cylinder walls. I also has an effect on lifters and on oil seals. There is also a product put out by "Lubromoly" it is a product made in Germany and you may not find it on the shelves at normal retailers, but possibly carried at repair shops which specialize in imports. I carry this product line at my shop and have had good luck with many of their other products as well. There is a company called "Worldpac" but they only sell to repair shops. The product line I am talking about, I have to buy must be bought by the case.
I am sure there may be other comparable products on the market which you may find at "OReilley's or Autozone. You need to speak to their sales people and possibly ask to talk to one of the people who are at their wholesale desk at the back who may be even more familiar with the products. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY! The main reason many products don't seem to work well, is that they are not applied as the manufacturer had instructed in the can and/or box! A product as old as the hills and twice as dusty is "Marvel Mystery oil" I have used it on engines which had little or no compression and pulled the plugs, poured the oil in the cylinders and let it sit over night. I would spin the engine over in the morning to blow the oil out, screw the plugs back in and fire the engine back up. There have been many times than I have had engine regain compression because the oil freed up rings that had stuck to the pistons. This oil can be added to the motor oil and the GAS! As far as the type of oil to use in the engine: It really depends on how well you have taken care of your engine to begin with. If you have done frequent oil and filter changes and the engine is relatively clean inside, I would run a 20W-40 with the additive and in my shop, I happen to use Castrol. Although most premium oils will perform quite well. If you have an engine with a lot of sludge buildup inside it, the sludge is probably the only thing holding it together. WARNING!!!!! DO NOT USE ANY KIND OF ENGINE FLUSH DESIGNED TO CLEAN THE INTERNALS OF THE ENGINE! When I refer to this, I mean a product that instructs you to put it in, run the engine for a while, drain it and then replace the oil and filter. YOU WILL IN ALL LIKELY HOOD DO MORE HARM TO THE ENGINE THAN HELP!
I hope I have answered your question.
