Radiator
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.
CAUTION
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.

To Remove:

  1. With the engine and cooling system cold (ambient temperature), release the pressure in the cooling system by slowly turning the pressure relief cap one half turn counterclockwise. When the pressure is released, remove the pressure relief cap. Drain the cooling system. Both the 2.0L Zetec and 3.0L (4V) engines have drains at the bottom of the radiators.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the lower splash shields.
  4. If equipped with a 2.0L Zetec engine, disconnect the lower radiator hose and the degas bottle return hose.
  5. If equipped with a 3.0L (4V) engine, disconnect the lower radiator hose, the high pressure transmission line (hose) and the degas return hose.
  6. Remove the lower center support bolt.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. If equipped with a 2.0L Zetec engine, disconnect the remaining coolant hose connections.
  9. If equipped with a 3.0L (4V) engine, disconnect the transmission return line and the upper radiator hose and degas supply hose.
  10. On all vehicles, remove the fasteners and position the hood latch out of the way, then unbolt the center support. Remove the top two bolts holding the cooling fan to the radiator.
  11. Remove the upper radiator support brackets and remove the radiator from the vehicle.

SOURCE: 98 Mazda 626 overheating. Blew off hose and was

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.

SOURCE: 2002 Mazda Tribute rear liftgate lock replacement

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.

SOURCE: I was told there are two oil pans on Mazda Tribute

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.

Where is the Coolant ECT Senor and my Thermostat on a 2005 Mazda Tribute . I know it's a 2.3 Liter V-6


If its a 2.3 it should be a 4 cyl. The V6 engine is a 3.0 cu in.
The thermostat should be under the housing where the upper radiator hose connects, and the sensor should be nearby.
If the thermostat is not in the upper housing check the lower radiator hose connection.

Hi I have leaking antifreeze.


First you have to figure out where it is leaking from.
The usual suspects would be the upper or lower radiator hoses, and after that, the radiator itself.
Hopefully it's a hose, they're usually relatively simple to get at and relatively inexpensive.
However, in order to replace them you will have to at least partially or fully drain the radiator, depending on whether the upper or lower hose is the culprit.
My last leak was from the hose running from the engine block to the heater core.
Let me know what you find, and where.
