Thermostat wasn't there

The thermostat wasn't there when I took the housing off. I bought a new one and it fits perfect in the housing but there is nothing to secure it in place it falls right into the engine?

Replace a thermostat


Take off the top radiator hose then the thermostat housing, the aluminium housing that the hose was joined to. Take out the thermostat, note which way it is round and fit the new one exactly the same way. Fit a new gasket and refit the housing and the hose. Fill with water.

Removal & Installation

1.5L, 1.6L, 1.8L & 2.0L Engines
  1. Drain the coolant to a level below the thermostat.
  2. Remove the water inlet fitting, gasket and thermostat.
  3. Clean the gasket mating surfaces.

  2. Install the water inlet fitting and tighten to 14-19 ft. lbs. (19-26 Nm) for 1.5L, 1.6L and 1.8L engines, or to 11-15 ft. lbs. (15-20 Nm) for 2.0L engines.
  3. Fill the engine with coolant, then start the engine and check for leaks.

2.4L & 2.7L Engines

  4. Clean the gasket mating surfaces.

To install:
  1. Install the thermostat. Make sure that the flange of the thermostat is correctly seated in the socket of the thermostat housing. If the thermostat is installed in the wrong direction, the bottom of the thermostat will touch the rib inside the intake manifold, making it impossible to seat flange in position
  2. Install a new gasket and the engine coolant outlet fitting. Tighten the fitting bolt to 7-11 ft. lbs. (10-15 Nm) for 2.4L engines or to 12-14 ft. lbs. (17-20 Nm) for 2.7L engines.
  3. Fill the engine with coolant, then start the engine and check for leaks.

Thermostat on focus zetec se 1.6 year 2001


Is the thermostat the correct temperature rating. It should have a temperature listed on the thermostat, and does it fit the cavitity the old one came out of.
If the answer is yes then its a matter of the correct gasket. Call the dealer and ask them. Remember sometime the manufacturer change certain parts
they are not required to tell anyone they had. You might be getting an upgrade (as long as it fits the cavity for the thermostat.)
If the rating on the new thermostat is different from the old one and it doesn't fit the cavity then bring it back and show the dearler what came out of the vehicle . The same with the gasket.

Where the thermostat is located on a 1993 maxima


Usually in any vehicle the thermostat is underneath the fitting either on the engine manifold or the block that is attached to the TOP radiator hose. 1 clamp, 2 to 3 attaching bolts for the fitting, a gasket and the thermostat. Just make sure to clean the mating surfaces well and install an new gasket with the thermostat.

applies most any automotive engine......

Thermostat wont fit currectly using gasket supplied with thermostat-tried O ring-over thermostat leak was visible what do I do?


Hi:
With no thermostat, the thermostat housing should sit flush against the engine mount surface. The outer diameter of the thermostat should drop down into the recess provided and not even interfere with the gasket. Make sure both sides are clean , and all residue is removed. IF the thermostat will not fit into the recess provided, then take your thermostat housing to the place you bought your new thermostat, and have them fit your new one to your housing.

Thermostat location


Follow the upper radiator hose back to the engine until you see a hose clamp holding it to the engine block. This is the thermostat housing and should have bolts to pull it apart. The new thermostat installs with the spring toward the engine. When purchasing a thermostat, if you get one with a jiggle valve (a little piece of metal on the top that jiggles) it'll help you orient the new thermostat as the jiggle valve goes on top (the thermostat and housing aren't perfectly round so you have to rotate it until the thermostat fits into the housing correctly). You can use some spray adhesive to keep the gasket in place while installing the thermostat. This helps, but it not necessary.

Over heating


Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. You'll see it clamp to part of the engine that has a few bolts in it. This metal part is the thermostat housing and is where your thermostat is. When replacing, make sure that you get the thermostat in correctly (spring side going into the engine). The thermostat is not perfectly round, and it will aide in alignment if you purchase a thermostat with a jiggle valve. The jiggle valve should be oriented near the top of the thermostat and you need to make sure you have it cocked so that it fits flush in the housing (the routed area is not perfectly round either, you'll have to spin it slightly until you find the best seat).
