Where is thermstat

Assume you are asking about the thermostat. You can find it by tracing the radiator hose to where it connects on the intake manifold. The piece it connects to is the thermostat housing. The thermostat lives inside that housing.

Is not heating

  • Raise and fully support the hood on the ford Remove the radiator cap and place a coolant drain pan underneath the radiator.
  • Open the drain-**** on the radiator and completely drain all of the coolant from it. It should take 10 minutes to fully drain. After this time close the drain-**** securely.
  • Locate the thermostat housing on the side of the engine below the alternator. It's not necessary to remove the hose from the thermostat housing. You can access the thermostat easily once the housing unbolted.
  • Slide your coolant drain pan directly beneath the thermostat housing. This way any coolant that comes out of the housing will go into the drain pan and not on the ground.
  • Remove the two bolts holding the heater core housing to the engine with a socket wrench. Pull the housing away from the engine and take out the thermostat.

  • Install the new thermostat just as you removed the old thermostat. Your new thermostat should have a rubber seal already installed on it, if not you have the wrong replacement part.
  • Position the thermostat housing back into its original location and then return both of its bolts by hand to insure they thread correctly. Set your 1/4-inch drive torque wrench to 89 inch-lbs. and completely secure both bolts in place.
  • Refill the radiator with fresh coolant or with the coolant from the drain pan if it's less than three years old. Return the radiator cap and then start the engine on the Bravada. Check for leaks every five minutes until the engine reaches normal operating condition. Take the truck for a test drive once you've determined there aren't any leaks present.

    Were is my thermostat in my 1997 eagle vision

    1. Disconnect negative battery cable. CAUTION
      Do not remove the radiator pressure cap with the cooling system hot and under pressure. Serious burns from hot, pressurized coolant can result.
    2. Allow cooling system to cool completely. Place a pan under the radiator drain, located at the lower right side of the radiator. Open the valve to drain the cooling system to a level just below the thermostat. Do NOT drain the cooling system completely, unless the coolant is being changed. Close the valve.
    3. Loosen the radiator hose clamp from the upper radiator hose at the thermostat housing and if necessary disconnect the hose from the housing. Fig. 1: Loosen the radiator hose clamp from the upper radiator hose at the thermostat housing 88173p06.jpg
      Fig. 2: If necessary, separate the upper hose from the thermostat housing (it is not required) 88173p11.jpg

    4. Remove the thermostat bolts and housing. Fig. 3: Loosen the thermostat housing bolt with the proper size socket 88173p07.jpg

    5. Remove the thermostat and discard the gasket. Thoroughly clean both gasket sealing surfaces. Fig. 4: Separate the housing to access the thermostat 88173p08.jpg
      Fig. 5: Lift the thermostat out . . . 88173p09.jpg
      Fig. 6: . . . then clean the mating area 88173p10.jpg
      To install:
    6. Clean the thermostat housing bolts well. On any engine, bolts that thread into the water jacket are subject to rust and corrosion. A bolt with rust or debris in the threads can easily strip out the threads in an aluminum manifold requiring a time-consuming thread repair operation. Clean the bolts well and lightly lubricate before installation.
    7. Install the thermostat into the recess in the intake manifold. Place a new gasket, moistened with water, on the water inlet mating surface on the intake manifold.
    8. Install the thermostat housing over the gasket and thermostat and tighten the mounting bolts to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm) on the 3.3L engine and 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm) on the 3.5L engine.
    9. Connect the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing and tighten the radiator hose clamp.
    10. Refill and bleed the cooling system.

    My Geo tracker 95 shows overheat on the assistant board.

    track the top hose from the radiator back to the engine where it should run into a rounded housing. This is the thermostat housing. Next time the vehicle shows its running close to 180 or higher (dont let it get too hot or your engine will fail completely)
    With the engine to temp, squeeze the upper radiator house. If it is hard then your have pressure running through the line, so then check the lower one. If no pressure, its your water pump.

    if hose can be squeezed, then the thermostat is not opening and allowing the coolant to circulate. Smack the housing a few times with some hard and blunt until you feel pressure in the hose again, or the temp gauge begins to regulate (if this is the case, you need a new thermostat; they are about $5 at any auto parts store......just remember to replace the gaskets while your at it)
