Where to find the thermostat for a 1990 ford mercury sable. not sure if that is the problem, but car is overheating. thanks.


this is a good place to start for an overheating problem, follow the top radiator hose to the engine, at the end of this hose is the waterneck, the thermostat is located in this housing, usually secured to the intake manifold with two bolts, remove the bolts an gently pry the waterneck off, there you will find the thermostat, note which way it is installed,(should be spring side down) set the new thermostat in place, be sure to use a new waterneck gasket during reinstallation

One mechanic said need new water pump another said new radiator for overheating problem ?


Overheating is caused by a thermostat being stuck closed, low fluid level, or blocked passages (which can be repaired by flushing out the engine and cooling system and installing new antifreeze).

Remove the top hose, unbolt the thermostat housing, remove old themostat and install new unit with new gasket. Replace top hose and fill with coolant. Be sure to re-check the coolant level after start up, beore you drive it anywhere, to eliminate any air pockets in the coolant.

Overheating 2001 chevy impala


Believe it or not, new thermostats can be bad. Did you maybe get some adhesive on the thermostat preventing it to open fully? Is the thermostat installed with the crown up? The only other thing that I can think of, if it's a closed cooling system and the wrong radiator cap is installed, it won't hold the pressure, therefor overheating. The other thing may be the water pump. Many times the impellers will wear down internally causing to low of water flow.
