I just had to replace my water outlet on my 2001 taurus 24 valve dohc which is located to the left of the battery its a molded plastic and hose piece it has an inlet and outlet. On the Outlet side the thermostat housing is in line of the hose it is a bit of a pain to loosen if it has never been changed because of the OE spring clips on the hose, I replaced them with screw type clamps for easy access. Good Luck

Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator outlet to the engine, the thermostat is under the cover where the hose connects to the engine.

How do you change the block heater in a 1999 Ford Taurus S.E. 3 litre 24valve duratec engine


Remove the inoperative heater and install the new one. You just have to gain access to the side of the engine block where the heater is located. Might have to remove something that is blocking access to the heater like the starter or something else.

The lower radiator hose is usually connected to the water pump. It's purpose is to draw coolant from the bottom of the radiator and circulate it through the engine and heater. a word of caution, even if you drain the radiator when you loosen the hose there will be a sizeable amount of coolant flowing from that point. Keep a pan handy!!!
