SOURCE: overdrive light flashing

Have a good look at your brakes, oil system and the gear oil guage.

There's a mechanical fault.

SOURCE: I need the keyless entry code for my car

Call the dealer with the VIN and they should be able to give you the original code. If that code doesn't work you'll have to take it to them to reset it back to the factory code. At that point you can set it to what ever code you want. That's probably what the previouus owner did. They come with a code from the factory with a security code, but it can be changed by the owner later. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Have 2002 Ford Escape, Where's the Radiator Cap??

This is where you fluid goes. If I were you, I would stay away from those sealants. But yes you can put the sealant in the reserve, but it;s best if you drain half the water out, pour in coolant and then re-fill. This gives it a better chance to flow throughout the system. Sometimes these sealants can cause more harm than good in the long run.

SOURCE: my truck is burning oil

This is indicative of worn piston seals, or faulty head gasket - where the oil is burned in the ignition of the gasoline.

Worn piston seals will show in blue exhaust smoke when under heavy accelleration or start-up.

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

This information should be in the Owners Guide/Manual that came with the car. Failing that it should be findable using Google.
