First when the engine is cool, you should drain the coolant from the radiator, being careful not to spill any, also keep pets away from anitfreeze as it is toxic to animals. then remove the thermostat cover, clean the mating surface, before replacing the thermostat. thake note of how the old thermostat is mounted and put the new one in the same direction. then reseal the housing, replace the fluid and run for a while. check the fluid level every few days and replace as necessay as your system works the air out.

SOURCE: 2001ford taurus heating problem

recommend replacing coolant reservior cap also start car let it get to tempature put on glove and squeeze the upper radiatior hose together and if real weak and does not open up in your hand the water pump maybe weak but before you do all this check the condition of the drive belt because if the belt is slipping you will loose circulation in the coolant system and if there is a salvage yard near you or if it is not very expensive have you changed the temp sensor with the little wire on it not far from the thermastat housing

SOURCE: Change spark plugs and now car wont start.....1994 ford tarus

Do you have the "firing order" correct? In other words, is each spark plug wire going to the same cylinder it was on before you changed the plugs? If you have done nothing else but changed the plugs then this is the most likely problem.
If when you try to start the car it backfires through the exhaust or backfires through the intake. Then this " IS" the problem. Good luck.

SOURCE: How do I change a thermostat in 2003 taurus?

Hi,
The thermostat is located in a housing on your engine that the top radiator hose connects to... but it isn't tied to your heater problem. The thermostat restricts coolant flow until the engine warms up, but doesn't control the car heater.
You may have a fuse issue if the fan isn't blowing any air. That's an easy check and fix. Autozone might check it for you.
I hope this helps... Good luck.

SOURCE: need to change thermostat 2002 ford tarus 3.0

need to diconnect the battery, drain the coolant, the thermostat is located on the right side of the engine as you are looking at it, follow the big upper radiator hose from the radiator the the thermostat housing, diconnect the hose from the housing, the remove the three bolts in the housing, pop the housing off and the thermostat should be stuck in the housing, note the position of the thermostat in the housing because it will only go back in one way, clean off the old gasket from the housing and the lower intake manifold, intsall the housing back onto the manifold with the new thermostat and gasket, start the bolts with your fingers and torque them to 90 in-lbs(inch pounds), connet the radiator hose to the housing, be sure to replace the hose clamp if its damged, fill the cooling sytem and connect the battery, start the engine and chek for any coolant leaks, be sure to check the coolant level after the engine has reached operating temp .

My ford tarus/1999 'serve engine"


The blinking engine light indicates your problems are severe and could cause more damage to the engine if not corrected. You will need to have a diagnostic scan run to retrieve the trouble codes that are causing the light to come on & flash. From those codes, repairs needed can be determined.
I hope this helps.

1998 ford tarus over heating


There is a lot more to the cooling system than the radiator and thermostat. 97 and 98 taurus' are prone to cooling fan failure. They also have issues with the coolant turning to a rusty colored sludge that can plug the radiator, and it let go long enough can eat the fins off the impeller in the water pump even cause it to break free from the shaft.
