Have you tried tracking the top radiator hose back to the engine? Most radiator hoses connect to the thermostat housing. I am not certain on this model but it is definitely a way to go about finding it. If this fails then you should check the owners manual or repair manual for the location.

How do you change the thermastat on the 2005 ford explorer sport trac


  1. 1 Drain the coolant from your Explorer into an adequate container by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator. Save the coolant for reuse if it is relatively new and clean.
  2. 2 Remove the negative battery cable from the battery if your Explorer has a 2.9-, 3.0-, 4.0- or 5.0-liter engine. This step is not necessary for 2.3- and 2.5-liter engines.
  3. 3 Follow the upper radiator hose to the front driver's side of the intake manifold, where it meets the engine. This is where the thermostat housing on your Ford Explorer is located. If necessary, remove the air cleaner duct for easy access to the housing.
  4. 4 Loosen the clip on the end of the radiator hose and pull the hose off the thermostat housing. Use a 10mm wrench or socket to remove the two retaining bolts on the thermostat housing cover. Remove the cover.
  5. 5 Note the position of the thermostat before removal. Pull out the old thermostat. Seat the new thermostat inside the housing in the same position as the old one, spring-side facing into the engine. Install new gasket over the thermostat.
  6. 6 Reattach the thermostat housing cover and the radiator hose. Reinstall the air cleaner duct if removed earlier. Fill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Start your Explorer and run with the heater blowing until the engine gets warm. Check for leaks.

Where is the thermostat on a 2007 ford explorer sport trac?


Find the radiator, big black thin rectangular shaped thing in the front. It has two large black rubber hoses connecting it to the engine. Where the top hose connects to the engine is the thermostat housing. Inside that housing sits the thermostat.

Car is overheating, im trying to change the water pump and the thermostat. but i cant get the water pump off, and i cant find the thermostat


The thermostat is at the back of the engine, the upper radiator hose is connected to the thermostat housing, there are 3 10mm bolts holding it on. I'd check for maybe a missed bolt on the water pump, I know there is alot of bolts holding it on.

Where is the resistor in a 2001 ford explorer


You have to remove your glove box and it is behind there. Here is a picture of where it is. This particular picture is from a 4 X 4 so if you don't have that it won't have the 4X4 part. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for using FixYa!5877c26.jpg

Cant put in thermostat


there are 2 things that can be wrong
1, the thermostat is upside down(doubtful as the housing won't sit properly and leave an obvious gap)
2, there is a bad seal between the housing and the surface where it goes. Just seal with a gasket sealing compound, but not too much as you can get some in the thermostat and block it.Or if the gasket, a thin piece of card cut to the shape of the housing base, is split replace with a new one.
