Removal & Installation
2002-2004 Ford Escapes should be filled with Motorcraft Premium Gold Engine Coolant or equivalent (yellow color). Always fill the cooling system with the same coolant that is present in the system. Do not mix coolant types.
NOTE: Do not add/mix orange-colored Motorcraft Specialty Orange Engine Coolant. Mixing coolants can degrade the coolant’s protection.
NOTE: The addition of Motorcraft Cooling System Stop Leak Pellets VC-6 darkens Motorcraft Premium Gold Engine Coolant from yellow to golden tan.
Used engine coolant should be disposed of in an appropriate manner. Follow your community’s regulations and standards for recycling and disposing of automotive fluids.
Never remove the pressure relief cap under any conditions while the engine is operating. Scalding coolant and steam will cause damage to the cooling system, engine and will result in personal injury. Wait until the engine has cooled. The coolant should be recovered in a clean container for reuse. If the coolant is contaminated, it must be recycled or disposed of correctly. Note that only about 80% of coolant capacity is recovered with the engine in the vehicle. Dirty, rusted or contaminated coolant requires replacement.

Yes, this is most likely a thermostat problem.
As a basic explanation, the thermostat is the device which separates the hot coolant in the engine block from the cool coolant in your radiator. If it gets stuck closed, your radiator coolant will remain at near room temperature, while the coolant in your block (which is what your gauge reads) does not circulate and will skyrocket in temperature.

Testimonial: "Very helpful. Discription makes sense/logical explanation of symptoms."
I'm not sure where' the screws are but basically You need to remove the panel on the rear door, then once the panel (interior trim) has been removed you should see a lock mechanism which will be screwed/bolted in place. Easier and cheaper then buying a brand new lock mechanism (unless you want to buy brand new) is going to a wreckers and finding your car model and get it that way (yes it's used but it'll probably save you tons of money vs the dealership) Best Regards.

There are two gaskets, one is between the lower pan and the upper pan, and the second is between the upper pan and the engine. You only need to replace the gasket that leaks. If both are leaking, replace them both. To find out where the leaks are, raise the car, get underneath, and look closely all around the oil pans to see where the oil is coming from. Use a flashlight if necessary. You should be able to trace any leaking oil upward to its source.
The oil pan gaskets are not necessarily the only sources of oil leaks. Check to see if any oil is coming from behind the timing cover, and look for oil coming from the valve cover gasket.
