SOURCE: 1999 Ford Windstar 3.8 no heat

If you have a knock or clicking noise behind the radio, it is the blend motor. The blend door is spring loaded and the gears in the blend motor are "stripped". The door is spring loaded so that the door is closed to the heater core. About 2 hours to replace and a lot of bending and stretching. You don't have to remove the dash, but all of the trim, radio, and controls will need to come out.

Leaky Valve Cover


the only "special" tool you would need is a set of torx sockets. the intake manifold is fairly self explanitory to remove, the bolts are in the center and they require a torx socket to be removed, The EGR pipes need two big wrenches (I believe a 1 1/2", and a 1") and lots of penetrating spray oil. Depending on your mechanical abilities, you could spend a good part of a weekend on it... Espically the thermostat housing! Its a tricky fit, and the plastic cant handle too many mistakes! If you decide to take it on, you should replace the intake gaskets, (they commonly leak, and aren't much $) make sure you have the right thermostat housing, (There should be only one sensor port on it, Sport-Trac's look identical but have two sensor port holes) a coolant bypass hose, (short hose under the housing) and obviously the coolant and the valve cover gaskets. It is a lot of work, but except for the EGR tube removal, and fitting the thermostat housing, it really isin't too bad.

How do you change the thermastat on the 2005 ford explorer sport trac


  1. 1 Drain the coolant from your Explorer into an adequate container by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator. Save the coolant for reuse if it is relatively new and clean.
  2. 2 Remove the negative battery cable from the battery if your Explorer has a 2.9-, 3.0-, 4.0- or 5.0-liter engine. This step is not necessary for 2.3- and 2.5-liter engines.
  3. 3 Follow the upper radiator hose to the front driver's side of the intake manifold, where it meets the engine. This is where the thermostat housing on your Ford Explorer is located. If necessary, remove the air cleaner duct for easy access to the housing.
  4. 4 Loosen the clip on the end of the radiator hose and pull the hose off the thermostat housing. Use a 10mm wrench or socket to remove the two retaining bolts on the thermostat housing cover. Remove the cover.
  5. 5 Note the position of the thermostat before removal. Pull out the old thermostat. Seat the new thermostat inside the housing in the same position as the old one, spring-side facing into the engine. Install new gasket over the thermostat.
  6. 6 Reattach the thermostat housing cover and the radiator hose. Reinstall the air cleaner duct if removed earlier. Fill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Start your Explorer and run with the heater blowing until the engine gets warm. Check for leaks.

Where is the thermostat on a 2007 ford explorer sport trac?


Find the radiator, big black thin rectangular shaped thing in the front. It has two large black rubber hoses connecting it to the engine. Where the top hose connects to the engine is the thermostat housing. Inside that housing sits the thermostat.

This may be a simple fix, where the wheel jack or washer bottle is located in the back behind the panel, there should be connectors for the rear lights, it is possible that the plug has been dislodged, remove the panels and check the plug connections. Good luck.

2000 ford escort therostat not working right


Replace the thermostat first. Make sure the antifreeze level is full. Bleed the system. most car's have a bleeder valve located at the thermostat housing outlet.Drain the coolant level only to below the thermostat where it won't leak when removing the housing and thermostat. If it's the heater core it is located under the dash where the 2 heater hoses enter the cab from the engine compartment.
