I would return it and get the one you require, you can find one out of an auto wrecker fairly cheap.

Can you use a lower radiator hose to replace the hose that is conected to the fuel tank? I believe its called the filler hose, but I'm not really a great mechanic LOL.

No, the radiator hose is made for use with water and coolant products only. The Fuel talk filler hose is a specially treated and fabricated type of hosing that is resistant to fossil fuel and oil products. If you try using a radiator hose, you will likely eat through that hose with gasoline and then you will have a really bad situation. I hope I have been of help to you.

Windshield on the pasangers side of my 2004 freeestar is foging u and i smell antifreeze

Are you sure it is antifreeze you smell? Is it a burnt smell or a sweet smell.
Could be the difference between radiator problems and that of a water
pump? Is vehicle running hot?

Where is the thermostat

On the right side of the engine.The thermostat is behind the hose coming from the engine block. It's below the coil pack where the spark plug wires connects.For more detail help:-- The Thermostat is hiding under the housing where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine.Just remove the hose and you see the thermostat. ----------- Keep updated if any more query.Thanks.

Where in the world is the thermostat located in a 1997 ford escort

If you're asking about the cooling system thermostat, follow the top radiator hose to the engine block. There will be a housing at the end of the hose. The thermostat is in there.

Lower radiator hose

after looking over the situation, and seeing what a horrible mess Ford made of the location of the lower hose connection location, i decided that the lower hose did not need replacement.
just my amateur thoughts on this, but if an item like a radiator hose needs to be replaced on a fairly regular basis then the design engineers need to keep this in mind when designing the engine in the first place. putting the clamped end of the hose in a position where it's not accessible is not just stupid. i've enjoyed having this car, for the most part, since the day it was purchased. changing the oil, and other maintenance items, is relatively straight forward. the lower hose has completely irritated me. there is no excuse for design professionals (and i use that term loosely!) to make such an obvious mistake. anyone who has ever worked on their own car would not have let this engine leave the shop on ANY car, let alone a car that was purchased by people on a budget who wouldn't want to spend gobs of money on paying a mechanic to change a stupid radiator hose.
my 2 cents.
thanks for offering to help.
