The thermostat will always be at the beginning of one of the large radiator hoses. The thermostat's job is to block the water from going into the radiator. The thermostat housing is generally round or parabolic shaped.

Do the air purge test below.

The fins/turbine on water pump can be totally worn out.

====

When the car is completely cool,check the electric fan(s) for smooth rotation.

Clean/check/change the thermo sensor,contact and wire.

===

Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak

This test will kill two birds with one stone.

===

MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!

RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!

You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!

===

Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .

Top of the coolant reserve tank

Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.

Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.

Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark

After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.

If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.

Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.

If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.

Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.

Start monitor for coolant lost

===

A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.

Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.

SOURCE: transit cooling system over heating and cuts out.

Not sure what you mean by transit, but it sounds like something may be clogged, or it's possible that the thermostat was installed backwards. Try removing the thermostat all together and see what it does. Never let your car overheat to the point of dying. Moniter the gauges and lights, as soon as it goes too high, turn it off.

If it still overheats with the thermostat off, you may have a blown head gasket. Check for water in your oil, check for coolant smell in your exhaust. Either of these is an indication of a blown head gasket. You may have a weak water pump as well, the shaft could be broken and not circulating. When you remove the thermostat, you should be able to see the water circulate with the radiator cap off. If it is not, then your pump is bad. Normally they will leak before they quit working, but it's possible that it don't.

If you replace your pump, make sure that there are no broken fins on the impeller. If there are, then it may clog your cooling system, you will have to find it.

Were is the thermostat to a 2001 ford escape


Look for "upper" radiator hose about 2" hose, follow back from radiator to engine block. The outlet from the engine which feeds into the Radiator hose contains the Thermostat (for the Engine) underneath it. But are you sure you need to change it?

How do I change the thermostat on my ldv 200 1.9d 94-96 (it an "N" reg )


It sounds like you have the right location, but getting to it is gonna be the issue. Typically yes the thermostat is located under the top radiator hose that runs from the radiator to the block. Start by draining some/most of the antifreeze that way you don't have a big mess then remove the hose from the block and then the thermostat housing so that you can replace it. Good luck making room to get in there. Hope this helps

My 2000 chevy 3500 6.5 turbo diesel isn't throwing out heat. where are the thermostat(s) located?


The thermostat housing is located on top and front of the engine. You will see a large radiator housing coming from it. There are 4 bolts to open the housing (15mm) and hose clamp(s) to loosen on the radiator hose. Once removed just pull out the 2 thermostats. When you are replacing the thermostat(s)-the gasket(s) for the housing are on the attached to the new thermostats- As you probably noticed when pulling out the old ones.

How to replace thermostat on ford f350 turbo diesel


The F-350 designation refers to a 1-ton Ford F-Series pickup truck. The thermostat in your diesel-powered Ford closes off the flow of coolant when the engine is cold, forcing the engine to heat up faster. When the coolant has reached a certain temperature, the thermostat opens up and the coolant flows as normal. A malfunctioning thermostat in your diesel may cause your engine to overheat if the thermostat gets stuck in the closed position. Installation of a new thermostat will cure the problem and get you back on the road

  • Open the hood. Allow the motor to cool off so that you will not be scalded by hot coolant. Locate the thermostat housing by tracing the upper radiator hose from the driver's side of the radiator to its termination at the thermostat housing.
  • 2 Remove the cap from the white plastic coolant bottle at the front of the engine bay. Place a drain pan under the radiator drain petcock on the lower side of the radiator on the driver's side of the truck. Remove the petcock by rotating it counterclockwise with a 19mm wrench. Replace the petcock and tighten it in a clockwise direction once the coolant has fully drained.
  • 3 Remove the clamps from both ends of the upper radiator hose with a pair of pliers. Pull the hose from the radiator and from the thermostat housing, using a twisting motion. Set the hose and clamps aside.
  • 4 Spray penetrating fluid on the three mounting bolts on the thermostat housing and let it soak in for a few minutes. Remove the three bolts with an 8mm wrench turned counterclockwise. Remove the thermostat housing from the water pump and set it and the bolts aside.
  • 5 Remove the thermostat housing from the water pump to reveal the thermostat. Carefully pry the thermostat up with a flat-blade



  • screwdriver if necessary. Clean the mating surfaces on the thermostat housing and at the water pump with a rag.
  • 6 Place a new thermostat into the water pump with the pointed end facing upward. Install a new O-ring gasket into the groove on the thermostat housing mating surface of the water pump. Position the thermostat housing back onto the water pump and tighten the three bolts with a torque wrench to 15 foot-lbs.
  • 7 Push the upper radiator hose back onto the radiator inlet and the thermostat housing until it is fully seated at both ends. Replace the hose clamps in their original position with a pair of pliers. Refill the coolant that you drained from the radiator back into the white plastic coolant tank and replace the cap. Start the engine and let it warm up. Check for leaks and retighten your connections if necessary

    Location of engine thermostats on 2003 ch2500hd turbo diesel


    Check this location.
    Between the alternator and A/C compressor, on the top. The other thermostat with vent holes goes toward the rear of the engine.
    I believe the temp ratings are different for each.
    Let engine cool before working on it.
    Clean up an spilled radiator fluid. It will destroy pets liver in 24 hours if they drink it.

    Thermostat


    this is the same for most cars, follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine, it should connect to a metal fitting that bolts the the engine, have a drain pan ready underneath and remove those bolts, the thermostat should be underneath that metal fitting.
