Where is the thermostat on a 1996 Ford Contour?

I don't have a auto repair manual for this vehicle to find where the thermostat is and I don't want to go digging around just yet not having the part.

Follow the upper hose from the top of the radiator back to the engine block, and the thermostat will be in the housing at the end of the hose. The housing is somewhat elliptical with two big bolts in it.

My 1996 Ford Contour is overheating and sometimes smells like electrical burning

Yes and no. The thermostat can cause a overheating concern but not really a electrical burning smell. I would also make sure the cooling fans

you don't repair it, you replace it. jack it up, remove the brakes, and all the brake assembly from that axle,, then remove the bearing cap,, cotter pin, and nut from the spindle , ( you might want to replace the wheel bearing at the same time due to the bad axle ) remove the axle bolts,, and shock bolts, from the axle beam. remove axle beam assembly

Hi there I need to know is a 1996 (fuse diagram) manual for a Ford Contour the same as for a 1995 (fuse diagram) Ford Contour. thanks

They're are some differences possibly but not sure. Have you picked up a repair manual for this vehicle?

Stop by NAPA or Auto Zone and request a copy of the "Haynes Manual" for you car. In it you'll find a detailed photo guide of repairs on your car. Also, in the back is a detailed breakdown and wiring guide / schematic for your car...

Hope this helps...
