On the 4 cylinder 2.0 L the thermostat is located where the upper Radiator hose and the recovery tank hose connect to the housing on the block. Disconnect the Neg (-) (Black) terminal. Drain and recycle the coolant, remove the air intake resonator, the recovery and upper hoses. remove the three bolts to the housing, remove the thermostat and )-ring (important, replace the O ring with your new thermostat. re assemble as you have taken apart. tork the bolts to 71-97 inch lbs on the 6 cylinder 2.5 L the process is similar, except there are only two bolts on the housing, tork the bolts after you have installed the new one to 15-22 ft lbs. I hope this solves your issue, thanks

SOURCE: where is the fuel filter located on a 1999 ford

It is in the fuel line, under the chassis, under the front drivers door (in a 2000) and has 2 little clamps holding the hoses, and a ring clamp holding it to the chassis. It will take you only 5 minutes to change and costs about $10 bucks. It will leak a little gas at first (1 cup) so keep your head away. A 12 year old can do this.
On the 1999 models its located...passanger side rear almost even with the tire.

It's best if you find your fuel shut off first (located on the left wall under the dashboard in a 2000 SE, there's a square hole in the plastic cover, stick your finger in there and push down on the red button.) and crank the car. Let it idle until it dies, may take a few minutes, repeat 3x. That will relieve the pressure in the fuel lines, and you won't have so much gas squirt out when you disconnect the filter. When you're done, turn the fuel back on (you have to manually raise the red button you pushed down before) and before turning the car over turn the key to the on position, then off, then on. That'll prime the pump and re-pressurize the fuel lines.

1999 ford contour 6 cylinder, 24 valve engine, overheating and water overflowing the reservoir, where is the thermostat located?

If you follow the upper radiator hose from the radiatior to the engine, it connects to the thermostat housing. The housing is where the thermostat is located and it is held inplace by a couple of bolts. It is easier to replace the thermostat if you drain most of the coolant out of the radiator. There is a valve on the bottom corner of the radiator. Also, for a few extra bucks, replace the radiator cap to make sure it is functioning properly, since it was over heated.
