If you take the T stat out, just replace it. They are only a few dollars. If they are stuck, it will over heat fast.

Take the thermostat out and drop it into a pot of pre boiled water. If the thermostat opens you know that it is good.

you can also confirm this by checking the distributor cap it should have numbers on it with connecting wire going to the corresponding cylinder. find the wire for cylinder # 4 and then trace it back to the engine.

SOURCE: need to locate thermostat in

Welcome to Fixya

The thermostat is located on the side head of the engine on the drivers side. If you follow the upper radiator hose to the plastic thermostat housing, (this is where it is located). This is a 2 piece housing. 3 BOLTS hold the main water housing to the engine block (These do not need to be removed to change the thermostat. The three screws on the thermostat housing (usually torx heads) need to be removed. (where the upper radiator). Inside you will find the thermostat. Remember to replace the thermostat gasket at the same time and also some thermostats will only fit in a certain way so pay attention when the old is removed if there is a little hole (foget what it is called) at the 12 oclock position on the thermostat.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I am having difficulty locating it. I need to know how to locate and replace a thermostat on a 2002 ford escape


Follow the top radiator hose down to where it connects to the engine. You should find a dome shape item or a couple of smaller bolts that attach to the engine to the side of the radiator hose and the thermostat will be inside the housing. You will need to drain the radiator, remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing to the engine and remove the old stat and put in a new one be sure to make note of how the stat is facing when you remove it and put the new one in the same way. then reconnect the thermostat housing making sure the gasket is in place so it won't leak, then refill the radiator slowly so you don't cause an air lock in the radiator, with cap still off start the engine and allow it to warm up until the stat opens and then you will need to add more antifreeze to the system. Double check for any leaks. Turn on the heater and make sure you have good heat and you should be good

Fuse for heater in 2006 Ford Escape


Replace the thermostat and if that doesn't work have the heater core purged of its air while engine is at normal driving temps. Have this done professionally or wear really good gloves do that you don't get burned.

Coolant light on


You say it's overheating, more info needed such as:
Is the engine temp gauge showing that it's overheating?
Is it actually 'boiling over' and losing coolant?
If it's running hot, but not losing coolant, check to see it the cooling fan is operating when the engine temp rises. You may have a bad cooling fan switch that is not signaling the fan to go on to lower the engine temp.
It could be a stuck (closed) thermostat that is preventing proper circulation of coolant after the car reaches operating temp.
