need to diconnect the battery, drain the coolant, the thermostat is located on the right side of the engine as you are looking at it, follow the big upper radiator hose from the radiator the the thermostat housing, diconnect the hose from the housing, the remove the three bolts in the housing, pop the housing off and the thermostat should be stuck in the housing, note the position of the thermostat in the housing because it will only go back in one way, clean off the old gasket from the housing and the lower intake manifold, intsall the housing back onto the manifold with the new thermostat and gasket, start the bolts with your fingers and torque them to 90 in-lbs(inch pounds), connet the radiator hose to the housing, be sure to replace the hose clamp if its damged, fill the cooling sytem and connect the battery, start the engine and chek for any coolant leaks, be sure to check the coolant level after the engine has reached operating temp .

You have an emissions problem. When the light starts flashing it is telling you that you are causing possible damage to the catalytic converters. These are very expensive on fords. Have it checked as soon as possible.
