SOURCE: 98 ford ranger 4 cylinder.

Just did this today on my 2000 4 cyl. It was a pain.

First off drain the radiator. There is a piece that sticks out at the bottom on the radiator on the drivers side. Put a large container under it and unscrew the white-ish plastic bolt to release the fluid. Make sure the radiator cap is opened to let it drain quicker. Then remove the top hose. The thermostat housing is at the end of the radiator hose on the engine. There is a bolt on the upper right, right up against the belt shroud for the camshaft. There is one more under the housing to the left. You pretty much have to feel for it. There is not much space to work with so I removed the fan (4 bolts) wiggle it off. To remove the fan you also have to remove the shroud to get it off. No problem just two bolts. This should give you plenty of room to work with. Then remove the housing and exchange parts. Replace the gasket (its a small rubber o ring. Mine looked fine so I left it, but I did put a bead of silicon around it just in case. Reverse the steps and add fluid back to the system.

SOURCE: What is the proper procedure

Hi, to replace the thermostat housing, thermostat and gasket, follow the detailed instruction below on how to do it.

  • Remove the thermostat housing from the engine block of the Explorer. The easiest way to locate the thermostat housing is to follow the upper radiator hose to the location where the hose connects to the engine. The hose connects to the housing. Hose removal is not required for removal of the thermostat housing.
  • Remove the 7/16 bolts that secure the housing to the engine block of the Explorer with a socket and ratchet. There are two bolts in total. Lift up on the thermostat housing, and push it and the hose off to the side so you can access the thermostat.
  • Remove the fabric thermostat gasket from the engine block and throw it away. Wipe the surface of the engine block clean with a rag.
  • Pull the old thermostat out of the engine block and throw it away. Place the new thermostat into the engine block. The end of the thermostat with the large spring sits inside the block, on a machined lip that sits just inside. The end with the jiggle valve sits inside of the thermostat housing.
  • Place a new fabric gasket onto the mating surface of the engine block and place the thermostat housing on top of it. Bolt the housing ans gasket into place with the original mounting bolts.

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

Replace themostst


Hello ,

The thermostat is located on the right side of the engine looking in,between the intake manifold and the air filter box, underneath the wiring. This is in a 1994 Ford Probe GT 6 cylinder.

To replace the thermostat, you really need to remove the intake manifold and this can be up to two or three hours work alone, even for a qualified mechanic.

It is in the housing at the engine end of the upper rad hose. When replacing it make sure the spring on the thermostat is toward the engine.

NOTE: Remove the air intake box so you can see below. There is a pipe running right into the bell housing where the thermostat is housed. There is one bolt that you need to remove (it is to the right,below the distributor) Then there are the other 12 mm bolts on the bell of the thermostat housing to remove. After removing those the thermostat should be able to come right out.

Thank you, hope this helps you out.

Where is the Thermostat for 1999 ford contour located


On the 4 cylinder 2.0 L the thermostat is located where the upper Radiator hose and the recovery tank hose connect to the housing on the block. Disconnect the Neg (-) (Black) terminal. Drain and recycle the coolant, remove the air intake resonator, the recovery and upper hoses. remove the three bolts to the housing, remove the thermostat and )-ring (important, replace the O ring with your new thermostat. re assemble as you have taken apart. tork the bolts to 71-97 inch lbs on the 6 cylinder 2.5 L the process is similar, except there are only two bolts on the housing, tork the bolts after you have installed the new one to 15-22 ft lbs. I hope this solves your issue, thanks
