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

2004 Ford Explorer V6 engine over heating i replaced gasket, thermostat, top housing unit and the o-ring now it is leaking from behind the base where the thermostat housing is bolted down to just behind...


There is a gasket on the base of the housing, the housing you speak off has the sensor and a heater hose and bolts to top of the intake and also hold the thermostant, this housing does contain a rubber molded gaske, i have replaced a few of these, heres the problem i have run into a couple where the plastic was eaten away in the area that holds the gasket in place. if you remove it you will see a groove that the gasket sits inside of, if the groove is broken then replace the housing but if its good then all you need is the gasket, you will need to ask for thermostat housing gasket to engine intake, this gets confusing to a parts person as they may think you are asking for the thermostat gasket, also in the rear bottom of the housing theres a hose connected to the housing make sure thats not your leak, the hose may also be leaking. good day

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer that has a coolant leak. I was diagnosed by pressure test as a leak from the thermostat housing. We have replaced the housing & thermostat. When starting the car after...


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.

Location of thermostat


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Container
  • Jack and jack stands or wheel ramps (if needed)
  • Screwdriver
  • 13mm socket or wrench
  • Thermostat and gasket
  1. 1

    Turn the drain valve at the bottom of the radiator counterclockwise to drain the coolant from your Ford Taurus into a suitable container. Depending on the size of the container, it may be necessary to lift the front end of your Taurus with a jack and lower it onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps.

  2. 2

    Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it meets the thermostat housing at the front of the intake manifold. Loosen the hose clamp and pull the radiator hose off the water connection on the thermostat housing.

  3. 3

    Take out the two bolts on the thermostat housing cover with a 13mm socket or wrench and remove the cover. Clean any old gasket residue from the inside of the thermostat housing cover. Pull out the old thermostat.

  4. 4

    Insert the new thermostat into the thermostat housing with the spring-side facing into the engine. Install the new thermostat gasket. Use a spray adhesive to hold the gasket in place, if desired.

  5. 5

    Reinstall the thermostat housing cover. Tighten the bolts to 89-124 in. lbs. Reattach the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing. Make sure the drain valve on the radiator is closed.

  6. 6

    Fill the radiator with new or reserve coolant. Start your Ford Taurus and allow it to warm up to its normal operating temperature. Check hoses and connections for leaks and tighten hose clamps to stop any leaks, if necessary. Add more coolant as needed.

Replace thermostat on 99 ford ranger with 2.5 engine


The upper radiator hose is connected between the upper radiator and the thermostat housing. Drain the coolant then remove the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing, replace if necessary. Remove anything blocking access to the two bolts holding the housing to the engine such as the belt cover. Pay attention to the orientation of the thermostat so you install the new one correctly. If the housing is corroded or pitted you have have to replace it or suffer leaks. Push a rag into the engine opening now exposed and clean the contact surface well so it won't leak later. Installation is the reverse of the process.

Where cN I FIND A DIAGRAM FOR THE COOLANT SYSTEM ON A 1987 FORD 460


Many auto parts stores carry maintenance and service manuals for the 1987 Ford vehicles. Don't recall seeing a "diagram" of a "cooling system" though. There isn't much to it...a radiator, outlet hose to engine block, inlet hose from engine block to radiator with a thermostat installed. Problems...thermostat can stick, radiator can corrode up, leak in radiator can occur, engine water jacket can rust up. Routine maintenance and antifreeze solution can help keep the radiator working fine.
