Take it back and exchange it for another one. Bring your old one with you to double check that the new one is the right dimensions.

Is not heating

  • Raise and fully support the hood on the ford Remove the radiator cap and place a coolant drain pan underneath the radiator.
  • Open the drain-**** on the radiator and completely drain all of the coolant from it. It should take 10 minutes to fully drain. After this time close the drain-**** securely.
  • Locate the thermostat housing on the side of the engine below the alternator. It's not necessary to remove the hose from the thermostat housing. You can access the thermostat easily once the housing unbolted.
  • Slide your coolant drain pan directly beneath the thermostat housing. This way any coolant that comes out of the housing will go into the drain pan and not on the ground.
  • Remove the two bolts holding the heater core housing to the engine with a socket wrench. Pull the housing away from the engine and take out the thermostat.

  • Install the new thermostat just as you removed the old thermostat. Your new thermostat should have a rubber seal already installed on it, if not you have the wrong replacement part.
  • Position the thermostat housing back into its original location and then return both of its bolts by hand to insure they thread correctly. Set your 1/4-inch drive torque wrench to 89 inch-lbs. and completely secure both bolts in place.
  • Refill the radiator with fresh coolant or with the coolant from the drain pan if it's less than three years old. Return the radiator cap and then start the engine on the Bravada. Check for leaks every five minutes until the engine reaches normal operating condition. Take the truck for a test drive once you've determined there aren't any leaks present.

    Replacing the thermostat on a 2000 ford explorer 4.0

  • Place the drain pan under the drain valve on the radiator. Loosen the drain valve and allow the radiator fluid to drain. If the drain pan is clean, you can reuse the antifreeze.

  • Loosen the hose clamps on the upper radiator hose using a socket, screwdriver or pliers, depending on the type of hose clamp on the hose. Pull the hose off the radiator and thermostat housing. If the air filter intake hose is in the way, loosen the clamps and remove the intake hose (on some engines).
  • Unbolt the two bolts in the thermostat housings. Pry the thermostat housing off the engine block. Pull the thermostat out of the housing. Remove the old gasket and discard. Slide the new thermostat into the housing the same way the old one came out. Install the new O-ring seal in the housing. Coat the housing with a thin layer of silicone gasket maker. Allow the gasket maker to dry.
  • Slide the bolts into the thermostat housing, then line the bolts up to the bolt holes on the block. Slide the housing down the bolts until it touches the block. Turn the bolts in by hand to get them started. Tighten the bolts to 89 inch-pounds of torque.
  • Reinstall the upper radiator hose. Tighten the radiator drain plug. Fill the cooling system. Start the engine with the radiator cap off. Allow the engine to come up to operating temperature. Look for leaks. Watch the level of the water in the radiator. Fill as needed

    How do i change the thermostat on the four cylinder

    If your talking that radiator Thermostat, trace the upper radiator line back to the motor. Where it mounts is actually an adapter plate that is bolted on with 2 to 3 bolts. Remove the Hose, Remove the Adapter from the motor and you should see the Thermostat under that adapter. Toss the old one and insert the new one. Clean the old seal off and put the new seal in place ind mount the adapter, tighten down, reconnect hose fill radiator and test drive for a block of 2 and then check for leaks. If you have any leaks at the adapter tighten the bolts a little more and top off the radiator.

    How do I remove & replace radiator on 1991 Lumina?

    GM Lumina/Grand Prix/Cutlass Supreme/Regal 1988-1996
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove the air cleaner, mounting stud and duct.
    CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or inPuddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old. To avoid being burned, do NOT remove the thermostat housing cap while the engine is at normal operating temperature. The cooling system will release scalding fluid and steam under pressure if the cap is removed while the engine is still hot.
    1. Properly drain the engine cooling system into a suitable container.
    2. Remove the coolant recovery reservoir.
    3. Remove the engine strut brace bolts from the upper tie bar and rotate the struts and brace rearward.
    To prevent shearing of the rubber bushing, loosen the bolts on the engine strut before swinging the struts.
    1. Remove the air intake resonator mounting nut, upper radiator mounting panel bolts and clamps. Tighten to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
    2. Detach the cooling fan electrical connectors.
    3. Remove the upper radiator mounting panel with the fans attached or the fan assembly, as applicable.
    4. Disconnect the upper and lower radiator hoses.
    5. Detach the low coolant sensor electrical connector, then remove the sensor, if used.
    6. If equipped, remove the automatic transaxle cooler lines from the radiator.
    7. Unfasten any necessary retainers, then remove the radiator.
    To install:
    If a new radiator is being used, transfer all necessary fittings from the old radiator to the new one.
    1. Position the radiator into the lower insulator pads
    2. If equipped, attach the automatic transaxle cooler lines to radiator.
    3. Install the low coolant sensor and attach the electrical connector.
    4. Connect the upper and lower radiator hoses and secure with the clamps.
    5. Install the upper radiator mounting panel with the fans attached or install the fan assemblies. Tighten the fan mounting bolts to 53 inch lbs. (6 Nm). Connect the fan wires
    6. Install the mounting panel bolts and clamps. Tighten the bolts to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
    7. Install the coolant recovery bottle.
    8. Swing the engine strut to the proper position and tighten the bolts.
    9. Refill the engine with the specified amount and type of engine coolant.
    10. Install the air cleaner, then connect the negative battery cable.
    11. Start the engine and check for coolant leaks.

    Hope helps with this (remember comment and rated this).

    How to cange the radiator and radiator heater

    The radiator should not be too big an issue, just depends on what tools you have available and how much stuff is in the way... The instructions here will be for a 2.4L engine, which may or may not help you. You will need a 10mm socket or wrench, a 13mm socket with an extension, and a 5/16 inch wrench or socket. Remove the headlights, you should see two small bolts on either side of the transmission cooler... remove those bolts. Then, remove the three bolts holding the radiator to the engine bay (the electric fan, if equipped, should be near the driver's side of the engine, next to the washer fluid tube). Next, remove all hoses and oil cooler lines connected to the radiator (should be able to remove the cooler lines with a 5/8 inch wrench). depending on your situation, I removed the battery and fuse box near the battery, and moved the air conditioning lines out of the way in order to get the radiator out. As long as the two nubs that are on the radiator are disconnected from the transmission cooler, you should be able to remove the radiator with little to no resistance. Be careful to not bend any fins on reinstallation. Installation is the reverse of removal... depending on how you want to do it, it should take you approx. 3 to 3 1/2 hours... it took me 5 1/2 due to it bein' 103 degrees and I took several breaks. if you have any more questions, please let me know.
