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

2004 Kia low heat at idle hiway speeds ok


1) Coolant tank may show full but radiator is low in coolant...Cold engine...remove cap...inspect coolant level in radiator...fill if necessary,,,
2) If #1 is OK, the coolant system has an air blockage...With cold engine remove cap...Start engine...Heat control on high... when thermostat opens coolant AND air will escape from radiator...there will be coolant loss...Wait until all air escapes then carefully replace cap...When engine cools remove cap and top off coolant if required.....saailer

Vapour lock in heating system, 2001 Ford 3.8 litre Essex V6 engine


It sounds like a bad radiator cap. The system is pressurized to obtain hotter temps without overheating. And because of this when the engine get to its operating temp. the engine has expanded. When you shut the car off the engine cools down or contracts. As it does if the cap is bad air is drawn into the system causing the problem you have. To fix this when the engine is cold remove the cap and leaving it off completely fill system turn on heater and run engine until the coolant stops spilling out, make sure you keep adding coolant during this process when needed. Once the spilling has stopped that means the air is purged. Carefully put your finger in the water to see if its hot(should be) feel the heat from the heater (should be hot) install NEW cap and that should do it.

FORD ESCAPE 2001 CONTINUES TO HEAT


Have you checked the thermo fans are cutting in and out. It may be the switch at the botom of the radiator or someone may have left the wire to the fan disconected probably when replaceing the radiator. or the A/C condensor might be blocked with grass stopping the air flow.

I have 1992 GMC pickup that I bought new. It has


The cooling system has not been completly full of coolant,make sure the level of coolant drops,when the engine heats up,and the thermostat opens up,then the coolant level will drop,when it does,be ready to fill the radiator completly full at this time,then cap the radiator off with the radiator cap.Be sure to fill coolant reservoir up,a little past the full mark.so it can fill it self as needed.If there is not enough coolant in the system,it will do what it is doing now.

Over heats after 10 minutes running. I have taken rad out and ran water through it, put it back in and when it is running the bottom hose collapses.


Is the cooling fan running? If so, drain the radiator with the heater control set to hot. Install a new thermostat, and fill the system with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water. Bleed all air from the system by using bleeder screws if equipped, and by starting the engine with the radiator cap off radiator full. Watch for escaping air bubbles and keep the radiator full. When you see no more air escaping put the cap back on. If the fan is not running then that is your problem. Turn the A/C on and the fan should run continuously. If it does not the fan motor is more than likely bad. Check the fuse for the fan. If it is good, Apply 12 volts directly to the fan motor to check it. If it runs then replace the thermal relay.
