More then likely thermostat housing, is the radiator cap, just below it, if it is that's what it is, most auto part will have this, remove small bolts that hold it in place, and install new one and top of with coolant.

Coolant leaks from front of engine compartment on 1989 Ford F-150

have a coolant pressure test done on the system and find the leaks. If it is an old radiator with plastic tanks then the tanks may be split (common) -check radiator hoses for splits and radiator cores for leaks. If the hose is enlarged past the clamp replace it as it is about to burst anyway check water pump and check all points where hoses are clamped onto aluminium housings as they corrode under the hoses.

Hi, Follow the top rad hose and at the end of that is the thermostat. Undo the two bolts and there it is.

My mini is using alot of coolant we think the thermostat is blocked, its pressuerising it back through the resevoir

Most common coolant leak is from the thermostat housing seal. Replace seal or housing and bleed properly.
Loosen plastic bleed screw on pipe above fan belt. Fill coolant via pressure cap ( right had side of engine....not expansion bottle) tighten once coolant free of air is seen. Run engine, loosen other plastic bleed screw on heater hose ( towards bulkhead ) and retighten once coolant runs free of air. Top up via cap again, run engine at 2500 rpm for 3 minutes with heater on ...should be very warm now. Once cool, check level and top up as required.

Bad thermostat on 2004 F350 Diesel 6.0

Drain the coolant out and remove the thermostat housing from the top of the engine - where the top radiator hose meets the domed cover on the top of the engine. Note how the thermostat is situated and replace the new one facing the same way. You will need to remove all of the old gasket material using a plastic scraper so you don't scar the metal and create a leak. Make sure the gasket pieces don't fall into the engine opening. (stuff an old rag in the hole). The parts store will tell you how to put the new gasket in and whether you should use RTV sealant or not. If you need RTV, use just a little. Put the gasket and thermostat in, put the housing over them and tighten the bolts by cinching one then the other until they begin to get tight. You are working with pot metal and aluminum so don't get too aggressive in making them tight. Replace the top hose if you disconnected it, refill with 50/50 coolant and antifreeze and run the engine to normal operating temp and look for leaks. If you find one, let the engine cool and try tightening the bolts a bit more. Make sure that the hose clamp is good and tight too.

Anti-freeze leak

If it's leaking at the top of the engine down. Look at the top of the engine at the front and you'll see a bleeder valve on top a black housing. These housings like to come apart at the glued seams. If it's leaking at the lower part of the engine towards the front, it could be your water pump leaking. Check your oil and if you see the color of the oil looking like chocolate milk, your water pump needs replaced, the oil will need changing as well. Do a coolant system pressure test and see if your hoses somewhere are leaking. Also check for your surge tank leaking. This is the tank that you put coolant into.
