Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
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.

check the latch and see if it has been tripped closed some how.look at the front doors and see what a open latch looks like and try to unlatch the rear one by holding the open lever down and trying to move the latch jaws open with your fingers or screwdriver.then spray with some oil.

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!
