Replace thermostat its overheating


If you overheated your Contour, you have also probably blew the head gasket AND warped the head but hopefully Not.

The Thermostat is removed by removing the 3 bolts on the housing. Install the Pill DOWN.

Recommend that you replace it with a "FAILSAFE" thermostat and I do hope you did not do any damage to the engine

I just change water pump in my 2000 Ford Contour V6 and it keep running hot


It's possible you may have an air pocket in the cooling system that needs to be purged. Also, the problem could be with the thermostat. Don't run the engine too long with it overheating. You could do damage to the cylinder heads.

1999 ford contour 6 cylinder, 24 valve engine, overheating and water overflowing the reservoir, where is the thermostat located?


If you follow the upper radiator hose from the radiatior to the engine, it connects to the thermostat housing. The housing is where the thermostat is located and it is held inplace by a couple of bolts. It is easier to replace the thermostat if you drain most of the coolant out of the radiator. There is a valve on the bottom corner of the radiator. Also, for a few extra bucks, replace the radiator cap to make sure it is functioning properly, since it was over heated.
