Thermostat pipe is leaking land rover freelander 2001 td 4

Your question is not very clear, but I will do my best to help you. The hose that connects to the thermostat on the engine block could be leaking or the thermostat housing (inside it is the thermostat) has a leaky gasket. Either way, change out the hose or the gasket!

Need to change thermostat and housing in a 2001 jeep cherokee I4 4.0L.

Hi there:

It is located at top front center of engine:


  • Remove radiator upper hose and heater hose at thermostat housing.
  • Disconnect wiring connector at engine coolant temperature sensor.
  • Remove thermostat housing mounting bolts, thermostat housing, gasket and thermostat. Discard old gasket.
  • Clean the gasket mating surfaces.

  • To install:

    1. Install the replacement thermostat so that the pellet, which is encircled by a coil spring, faces the engine. All thermostats are marked on the outer flange to indicate the proper installed position.

    2. Observe the recess groove in the engine cylinder head.
    3. Position thermostat into this groove with arrow and air bleed hole on outer flange pointing up.

    4. Install replacement gasket and thermostat housing.

    Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

    Got trouble code p0125. Car starts then idles way low then climbs back to regular idle. What is the problem?

    I have a 96 Towncar, which had a P0125 trouble code set. I changed the thermostat and cleared the code - only to have it reset in a couple minutes after starting. The car was hard starting, and died several times before it actually ran. I did also noticed that while running the idle speed had risen to over 950 RPM.

    I changed the Temperature sending unit located next to the thermostat housing, and again cleared the code. After starting the car again it performed excellently and did not reset the P0125 trouble code.

    Need to locate thermostat in 2001 ford escape. i think it is stuck.

    Welcome to Fixya

    The thermostat is located on the side head of the engine on the drivers side. If you follow the upper radiator hose to the plastic thermostat housing, (this is where it is located). This is a 2 piece housing. 3 BOLTS hold the main water housing to the engine block (These do not need to be removed to change the thermostat. The three screws on the thermostat housing (usually torx heads) need to be removed. (where the upper radiator). Inside you will find the thermostat. Remember to replace the thermostat gasket at the same time and also some thermostats will only fit in a certain way so pay attention when the old is removed if there is a little hole (foget what it is called) at the 12 oclock position on the thermostat.

    Thank you for using Fixya!
