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

The end of the top radiator hose on my 2001 ford escape broke off and car overheated. Do I replace entire hose or fix the end with clamp?

For a quick fix, you can clamp the old one if enough hose is available to do so. Plan on replacing the whole hose, just a matter of time before it breaks again.

Were is the thermostat to a 2001 ford escape

Look for "upper" radiator hose about 2" hose, follow back from radiator to engine block. The outlet from the engine which feeds into the Radiator hose contains the Thermostat (for the Engine) underneath it. But are you sure you need to change it?

2001 Ford Escape. Coolant leaking from somewhere. Went through bottle of coolant in 2 days.

If there is no sign of a leak you need to test for cylinder head leaks.
Warm up the engine and remove the radiator cap. Top up the water to the neck of the filler. Squeeze the top hose a couple of times to shift any air in the top tank of the radiator. Run the engine on idle and check for bubbles it the radiator, keep it topped up to the neck. Bubbles showing means you have a head gasket problem.

Colapsed pcv hose on 2001 ford escape

Replace the hose. While it is off, clean all the gunk out of the engine side where the hose attaches. If there is mot free draft, the engine vacuum will collapse the hose. But just putting on a new how will help a lot.

Is it difficult to change the antifreeze in a 2005 Ford Escape V6? Do you need to change any hoses in the process?

Most places can flush out you system for you. But you can do it your self. and only way you need to change hoses if they are cracked and leaking. you can go to you local auto part store and ask how to do it the safe way cus i may do it the wrong way. also pick up the antifreeze you will need while your i just stick a house in the radiator and take the return house off the radiator and let it flush that way and when i think its all flushed i slow it down and put in the antifreeze and when i start to see green i stop every thing and put the hose back on. but the car needs to be running the whole time to cycle it through the whole motor. but you may need to ask the right way to do not the redneck way i do it.
