Crown vic thermastat housing cracker,can i just replace housing or whole intake


The all-black-plastic manifolds are susceptible to cracking. You should inspect the manifold carefully for cracks, but it might be hard to see if it is cracked underneath. You could try replacing just the thermostat housing, but if you still get leaks, you will probably need to replace the manifold as well. Ford recalled some fleet cars for this issue, but not all cars affected.

Coolant leaks from the plastic housing that the thermostat sits down into.


You may have to remove the thermostqat housing and replace the O ring that is the seal. Otherwise the housing is cracked and needs to be replaced or repaired with an epoxy patch. Hope this assists you. 3ef2f06.gif

On the '02 Mountaineer, 4.0L 6 cyl, does the o-ring gasket go into the thermostat housing before or after the thermostat? Instructions I've found are vague and I cannot find a diagram of the housing...


The O-ring gets placed on top of the thermostat. Ford uses a two-piece hard plastic housing (non metal) and if you insert the O-ring before the thermostat then it will leak. That leak might cause some to over-tighten the bolts holding the housing together and leading to cracking of the housing. (The upper housing costs about $45 and lower about $65.) There is no gasket between the two housings.The thermostat is designed to allow the O-ring to fit snugly.

Changing the thermostat on this engine is very easy. It's only necessary to drain a small amount of coolant from the engine to start the repair.

1998 mustang gt coolant leak


I just had the same problem. Ford design the intake manifold with plastic water crossover which cracks. The coolant will leak onto the top of the block and and then down the back of the engine. This intake design is a known defect and was ocvered under by Ford for 7 years past the date of mfg. The crack either is in the crossover or the thermostat housing. I happed on this when I found the same leak and traced it back to the thermostat housing. I changed the thermostat, but it leaked worse. You can pickup a aftermarket for $200 and it's about 4-6 hr job to 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.
