Where is the thermostat located on a 1997 ford Taurus SHO?


Trace the top radiator hose back to the engine. Where it ends is the thermostat housing. You'll have to drain your radiator, remove the radiator hose at the housing on the engine side, then there's usually 2 bolts that hold the housing on. remove the housing, remove the thermostat Noting which direction the thermostat is sitting, replace with the new one in the same position, put a new gasket on the thermostat housing and reverse your steps to put it back together. NOTE**** DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING BOLTS*** if you strip them or snap them off you will be looking at a major repair bill.

Thermostat housing bolts wont tighten up


Pull the housing off and check if the threads are stripped where the bolts screw in. On aluminum, threads can get easily stripped from over tightening. A shop can use tap and die tools to rethread the holes. It shouldn't cost too much.

Were is my thermostat in my 1997 eagle vision


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect negative battery cable. CAUTION
    Do not remove the radiator pressure cap with the cooling system hot and under pressure. Serious burns from hot, pressurized coolant can result.
  2. Allow cooling system to cool completely. Place a pan under the radiator drain, located at the lower right side of the radiator. Open the valve to drain the cooling system to a level just below the thermostat. Do NOT drain the cooling system completely, unless the coolant is being changed. Close the valve.
  3. Loosen the radiator hose clamp from the upper radiator hose at the thermostat housing and if necessary disconnect the hose from the housing. Fig. 1: Loosen the radiator hose clamp from the upper radiator hose at the thermostat housing 88173p06.jpg
    Fig. 2: If necessary, separate the upper hose from the thermostat housing (it is not required) 88173p11.jpg

  4. Remove the thermostat bolts and housing. Fig. 3: Loosen the thermostat housing bolt with the proper size socket 88173p07.jpg

  5. Remove the thermostat and discard the gasket. Thoroughly clean both gasket sealing surfaces. Fig. 4: Separate the housing to access the thermostat 88173p08.jpg
    Fig. 5: Lift the thermostat out . . . 88173p09.jpg
    Fig. 6: . . . then clean the mating area 88173p10.jpg
    To install:
  6. Clean the thermostat housing bolts well. On any engine, bolts that thread into the water jacket are subject to rust and corrosion. A bolt with rust or debris in the threads can easily strip out the threads in an aluminum manifold requiring a time-consuming thread repair operation. Clean the bolts well and lightly lubricate before installation.
  7. Install the thermostat into the recess in the intake manifold. Place a new gasket, moistened with water, on the water inlet mating surface on the intake manifold.
  8. Install the thermostat housing over the gasket and thermostat and tighten the mounting bolts to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm) on the 3.3L engine and 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm) on the 3.5L engine.
  9. Connect the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing and tighten the radiator hose clamp.
  10. Refill and bleed the cooling system.

Instructions to fix a thermostat on 1993 Mercury Grand Marquis


Thermostat should be at the base of the upper hose where it connects to the intake manifold.

You should see two bolts securing the housing to the intake. You will need to drain some coolant from the system first via the radiator drain before you remove the housing.

When reinstalling the housing, be VERY careful to not over tighten the bolts as they will strip/break way easier than you want to know.

Then, refill system, start up and idle while adding coolant till system is full.

Make sure to have heater on high during this process to remove any possible air from the core.

Replace thermostat


Drain the coolant out of the peacock drain on the radiator-the top radiator hose on the intake manifold needs to be removed- next you will remove the thermostat housing bolts, take the housing off and remove the thermostat. When reassembling clean the gasket surface really well and be carefull not to strip the bolts.

What is torque spec for 2004 Ford 4.0 thermostat cover bolts? Replaced black ''plastic'' thermostat housing and inlet cover. Thanks


Normally these bolts are about 20-24ft lbs. You don't want to over tighten them as they should have a rubber washer/gasket to help provide a good seal. These cast aluminum housing will easily strip so just use care when tightening. Just snug both bolts and run the vehicle til it reaches operating temp then check for leaks. You can also purchase a Chiltons/Haynes manual for your vehicle at any auto parts store for $15 they normally give you the torque specs as well as some other valuable tipe
