Follow the upper radiator hose to where it attaches to a housing (2bolts hold the housing in place) remove the hose clamp here and then remove the housing bolts, inside the housing is your thermostat. Clean off the surface of the housing, and where it attaches to the engine. Install the thermostat, and a new gasket (or O -ring ), carefully replace the housing, being sure the thermostat doesn't slip out of position, tighten the housing bolts, reattach the radiator hose to the housing, add coolant to proper level, check for leaks, u r good to go! Make sure the thermostat is installed in the right direction, if put in backwards the car will overheat. countrycurt0

SOURCE: Bublling in the thermostat housing and very hot upper radiator hose

I recommend flushing the radiator thoroughly if not done recently. there seems to be some sort of blockage in the radiator at this time. if you get lots of metal fragments that are flushed out during this flush, i will then recommend a rebuild on the radiator or replacement of the radiator. make sure the cooling fans are cycling on time as well.

SOURCE: torque wrench settings for ford focus thermostat

There is a set spec, but for the DIY mechanic,,
Using a !/4 " drive, with the correct long socket, apply a FIRM effort on the wrench, but obviously not too much, as to sheer the studs. Always use a NEW gasket on all mating surfaces.
Regards,DT

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

Where is the thermostat located on 2001 ford focus?


The purpose of the thermostat is to regulate the coolant system to prevent the engine from overheating. A faulty thermostat will stick and not allow the coolant to enter the engine.
Follow the upper rad hose to the engine and at the engine there is the thermostat housing.
Undo the bolts and lift off the connector and replace the thermostat.The thermostat housing is attached with three bolts.Lift the thermostat out of the housing. The thermostat rests at the bottom of the housing.

How difficult is it to change a thermostat in a 2002 Ford Focus?


The Thermostat Housing is located on the right hand side of the engine. Remember this is FWD configuration so think of it as being mounted on the "rear" of the engine in terms of normal V6, V8, L6, etc.

Trace the radiator hose (right side of radiatoras you are looking from the front of the engine) and you will find it leads to the "water outlet" on the thermostat housing. There are a total of 4 hoses attached to the Thermostat Housing. It is a black plastic (OEM) housing held onto the engine by 3 bolts. Note: ther are 3 Torx screws visible, they for the water outlet housing and can be worked on while the Thermostat Housing is off of the engine. Plastic can easily crack/score so be gentle whe removing the hoses and hardware.

This housing is notorious for leaking even when a new gasket (O-Ring) is installed. I suggest dressing the housing mount surface with a small bead of grey RTV along with a new gasket prior to installing. Be sure to use only a small bead in an effort not to get excess into the housing or to foul the gasket.

You will need a 20 star bit screw driver and a tool to take off your radiator hose.Their are 4 screws on the front of your thermostat housing . Make sure your car is cool for at least an hour And you will Probably need to unclamp the top hose running to the thermostat housing.And Probably the hose up under the housing.Then with the 20 star bit screw driver unscrew the 4 screws in front of the thermostat housing.When you get the front of the thermostat housing off.The thermostat is right inside pull it out and replace.

Thermostat replacement


IF YOU LOOK UNDER THE CAR, NEAR THE ALTERNATOR YOU WILL SEE A PLASTIC HOUSING WITH 2 PIPES LEADING ONTO IT. THE THERMOSTAT SITS IN THAT. JUST BE CAREFUL YOU DONT SNAP THE BOLTS WHEN REMOVING THE HOUSING.THE HOUSING ITSELF CAN BECOME WARPED OR CRACKED AND LEAK FLUID, A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE FOCUS. THE HOUSING COSTS AROUND £15 AND A THERMOSTAT ABOUT £6. GOOD LUCK.
