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

In dash thermometer


Sounds like you need a new thermostat on the engine. There is no thermostat in the dash, only a gauge.

How do you change the thermastat on the 2005 ford explorer sport trac


  1. 1 Drain the coolant from your Explorer into an adequate container by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator. Save the coolant for reuse if it is relatively new and clean.
  2. 2 Remove the negative battery cable from the battery if your Explorer has a 2.9-, 3.0-, 4.0- or 5.0-liter engine. This step is not necessary for 2.3- and 2.5-liter engines.
  3. 3 Follow the upper radiator hose to the front driver's side of the intake manifold, where it meets the engine. This is where the thermostat housing on your Ford Explorer is located. If necessary, remove the air cleaner duct for easy access to the housing.
  4. 4 Loosen the clip on the end of the radiator hose and pull the hose off the thermostat housing. Use a 10mm wrench or socket to remove the two retaining bolts on the thermostat housing cover. Remove the cover.
  5. 5 Note the position of the thermostat before removal. Pull out the old thermostat. Seat the new thermostat inside the housing in the same position as the old one, spring-side facing into the engine. Install new gasket over the thermostat.
  6. 6 Reattach the thermostat housing cover and the radiator hose. Reinstall the air cleaner duct if removed earlier. Fill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Start your Explorer and run with the heater blowing until the engine gets warm. Check for leaks.

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.
