SOURCE: what is torque spec for 2004 Ford 4.0 thermostat

Normally these bolts are about 20-24ft lbs. You don't want to over tighten them as they should have a rubber washer/gasket to help provide a good seal. These cast aluminum housing will easily strip so just use care when tightening. Just snug both bolts and run the vehicle til it reaches operating temp then check for leaks. You can also purchase a Chiltons/Haynes manual for your vehicle at any auto parts store for $15 they normally give you the torque specs as well as some other valuable tipe

1995 ford windstar thermostat housing bolt torque spec


Most people don't bother using a torque wrench to tighten a thermostat housing.

It is more important to be careful and tighten each bolt a little at a time. You do not want to warp, crack, miss align the part you are bolting.

It does not take a lot of torque to seal a thermostat housing. I would guess somewhere between 15 and 20 ft lbs.

It is often hard to find such torque specs for specific vehicles.

For bolts that you cannot find a specified torque spec, you can refer to a standard bolt torque chart. The charts are based on the diameter of the bolt threads not the wrench size used to fit the bolt head. The charts also depend on the hardness of the bolt material. Also keep in mind the material you are bolting into.

Here is one such chart...

Keep in mind that thermostat housing bolts are just sealing a gasket. They are not holding the entire car together.

After turning wrenches for many years, most mechanics just know by feel.

There are cases where a torque wrench is mandatory. Like head bolts, wheel bearing/hub nuts, rod caps, main bearing, etc.

How to change the thermostat


Hi, Follow the top rad hose and at the end of that is the thermostat. Undo the two bolts and there it is.
But first you will have to drain some fluid out to make it easier to access. Good luck.

How to replace 2003 xj8 thermostat, car is over heating and fan runs when turned off


=thermostats are easy fixes, just locate your upper radiator hose and where it enters the engine. three should be a thermostat housing at the end of the hose and it will be bolted to the engine. Remove this housing and replace with correct thermostat and gasket and tighten housing to the proper torque specs. You will need to use care when removing the bolts as it appears to have some clerance problems on some of the housing bolts as it is bolted to composite plastic material and is easily damaged. here is link. I would not over tighten the bolts again because of the material.

98 Lincoln TC,Cold starts fine ,runs good until warm, then shuts off. No codes,Cranks ok, have spark, PATS ok. No fuel pressure, cant hear fuel pump prime,New Fuel relay. jumped fuel pump - works. I do not hear fuel pump prime up, do not have fuel gauge, but pressing on valve in fuel rail- no pressurized fuel. Fuel regulator seems ok, not leaking / vacuum line dry as a bone. If I let it set for 15 min , it will start up again, but for a few minutes then dies out. If I let it set overnight it starts up perfectly and runs until operating temp is reached then stalls/stumbles, and shuts down. Vacuum is good while cranking, even with no start, Checked Inertia switch in trunk, it is not tripped. I have seen Ford TSB summaries' that mention issues like this , but I am not able to see to description. A point to add, the MAF sensor was cleaned, then I decided to replace it and did not make a difference. I do not have any stored codes, and the PATS is working fine, typical 2 second flash from and once key is inserted a 3 second steady light, then disappears. I have seen the TSB mentioning C103 Connector, it looks fine, I swapped out fuel pump relay with ac relay, still no difference.mention of wires around battery, do not know where to start. in dash service engine light and odometer is normal, seen other posts the say they only have lines, but mine is ok. the start of all of this , I washed engine with regular garden hose, ( not using pressure washer).also in the mean time, rear window defroster stopped working as well, can not say for same reason, but a mention.My problem started after washing engine. this is one of four Panther platform vehicles I owned with exact 4.6l w code engine, which I rinced down before. The only sensor I can think of is Oil pressure , or a corroded wire
