Yes. You should be able to replace it without removing the intake manifold. The bolts are very hard to reach, but it can be done with the proper set of sockets and universal joint extensions. I know it looks impossible. If in doubt, take it to a reputable repair shop. Don't let anybody charge you for intake manifold removal.

How do you change the thermastat on the 2005 ford explorer sport trac


  1. 1 Drain the coolant from your Explorer into an adequate container by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator. Save the coolant for reuse if it is relatively new and clean.
  2. 2 Remove the negative battery cable from the battery if your Explorer has a 2.9-, 3.0-, 4.0- or 5.0-liter engine. This step is not necessary for 2.3- and 2.5-liter engines.
  3. 3 Follow the upper radiator hose to the front driver's side of the intake manifold, where it meets the engine. This is where the thermostat housing on your Ford Explorer is located. If necessary, remove the air cleaner duct for easy access to the housing.
  4. 4 Loosen the clip on the end of the radiator hose and pull the hose off the thermostat housing. Use a 10mm wrench or socket to remove the two retaining bolts on the thermostat housing cover. Remove the cover.
  5. 5 Note the position of the thermostat before removal. Pull out the old thermostat. Seat the new thermostat inside the housing in the same position as the old one, spring-side facing into the engine. Install new gasket over the thermostat.
  6. 6 Reattach the thermostat housing cover and the radiator hose. Reinstall the air cleaner duct if removed earlier. Fill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Start your Explorer and run with the heater blowing until the engine gets warm. Check for leaks.

1998 Explorer: how do i fix the timing belt...


Remove your radiator, water pump, and anything else blocking the front of the engine. remove the timing belt cover and there is the belt. The best advice I can give on exact specs is to purchase a Haynes manual. It will give exact specs on lining up timing marks, resetting the timing, and torque specs of all things involved

1998 ford 4.0 sohc v6 explorer sport 4wd. 148000


hi, as far as i can remember its impossible to do the work without removing the whole lot as you just have not got enough room to get the tools in to get the job done, you could contact your nearest main dealers technical department but im pretty sure that the last one we did here we had to take the whole lot out as we could not get the tools in as their just isnt enough room they build these engine big enough to fill the engine bay leaving you no room to carry out these type of repairs so taking the engine out is the only way your going to get this work carried out.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

Make sure you purchase a workshop manual as this will give you all the correct settings your going to need ok
