Do anyone knows why my 2002 Ford explorer keeps running hot. I changed the thermostat and water pump and it's still running hot.

blocked radiator, blown head gasket, new thermostat in wrong
If the overheating is occurring at standing , low speeds or high rpm low road speed conditions , replace the viscous fan hub as it is not driving the fan properly
If you have electric fans check
bot fuses, engine coolant sensor, relay, fans and wiring

I am having difficulty locating it. I need to know how to locate and replace a thermostat on a 2002 ford escape

Follow the top radiator hose down to where it connects to the engine. You should find a dome shape item or a couple of smaller bolts that attach to the engine to the side of the radiator hose and the thermostat will be inside the housing. You will need to drain the radiator, remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing to the engine and remove the old stat and put in a new one be sure to make note of how the stat is facing when you remove it and put the new one in the same way. then reconnect the thermostat housing making sure the gasket is in place so it won't leak, then refill the radiator slowly so you don't cause an air lock in the radiator, with cap still off start the engine and allow it to warm up until the stat opens and then you will need to add more antifreeze to the system. Double check for any leaks. Turn on the heater and make sure you have good heat and you should be good

My car ford explorer 2002 does get heated up to the max when i accelerate suddenly

Your thermostat needs to be changed. That is what makes your vehicle get hot. You may also have a vapor lock as well. On top of the thermostat housing there is a little bolt that works like a bleader screw on the breaks. In order to make sure that it is not vapor locked you will have to start the vehicle and loosen the bolt just a little bit until antifreeze or air starts coming out. If there is air then you'll need to leave it loose until all the air is out of it once you have a steady stream of antifreeze coming out tighten the screw up. That should solve the over heating problem

Change oil transmission ford explorer 2002 4x2

i know you cannot check your transmission fluid like years prior to the 2002 they made this model so you have to take it into the shop/dealership to have them check your levels, and change the transmission. They are trying to eliminate the backyard mechanic from doing maintenance on the vechicles

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer that has a coolant leak. I was diagnosed by pressure test as a leak from the thermostat housing. We have replaced the housing & thermostat. When starting the car after...

sounds like you didn't seat the new thermostat correctly, check that first. Other then that you will need to have it pressure tested again to find out what else is leaking.
