Follow the upper hose to the housing it goes to and if you see bolts there the thermostat should be under it. make sure to have coolant on hand as you will loose some.

How to change a thermastat 1994 ford escort with a 1.9 engine


1.9L Engine

CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the air intake tube, crankcase breather and PCV hose.
  4. Remove the ignition coil pack and bracket.
  5. Remove the upper radiator hose.
  6. Remove the ignition coil pack bracket.
  7. Unfasten the heater hose inlet tube bracket bolt and remove the heater hose inlet tube from the thermostat housing.
  8. Remove the three thermostat housing attaching bolts, then remove the thermostat housing and gasket.
