Shaun just answered my question on a thermostat change on a 3.0 in my 1998 Taurus. Is the answer the same if it is the 24V DOHC?

Hi, this is Shaun again. The answer is the same for a 24v DOHC. Coolant systems are pretty simple and haven't evolved much with different vehicles and motors. It's pretty much the same process with all vehicles.

1998 Ford Taurus - thermostat - easy change? where is it?

Hi, welcome to FixYa! My name is Shaun. To answer your question, a thermostat is a very easy change. Follow your upper radiator hose into your motor. Where the hose joins the top of the block, you will see an elbow of sorts, held in place by a couple of bolts. This is your thermostat housing. Remove the thermostat housing and the old thermostat, and replace with the new thermostat, paying close attention to the orientation of the thermostat you removed. If installed backwards, the thermostat will not operate. With the new thermostat installed, apply a thin coat of blue RTV silicone sealant to each side of the new gasket, seat the gasket over the thermostat, and reinstall the thermostat housing. Replace ant lost coolant, and if nesessary, burp the system to release any trapped air to prevent overheating. That's it, you're done! The whole process should take less than 30 minutes. Hope this helps! Have a good day!

if its a 3.0l 2-valve it could have a head gasket or cracked head.
