Just did that on a Grand Am , it was pressed in , but not a permanent thing. it had an O ring on the end , and some RTV sealant. After removing a retaining nut on a small flange I just wiggled and pry'd a bit and it came out. Not sure if your ford is the same.

Thermostat gasket blown


Is it all one piece, the outlet pipe and the t-stat housing? The gasket goes on the bottom of the housing where it mates to the engine. If the coolant is leaking from the bottom of the housing, that would require a new gasket. If coolant is leaking where the radiator hose connects to the pipe, have you tried tightening the hose clamp?
If the outlet pipe and housing are separate, there may be an O-ring seal between them. You may want to pull off the radiator hose and check if the pipe is so badly corroded and rusted that it cannot seal anymore, or may have a hole in it, especially if it is thin metal.

How To Replace My Thermostat...HELP!


Termostat is as follow. See clarification. R U changing the sensor?
Follow the top radiator hose over to the engine and where it connects to the thermostat housing. There should be two bolts holding the housing to the motor. Remove the housing and replace the thermostat and gasket. The larger side of the thermo goes in the engine.
