Need new thermostat


Follow the radiator hose that goes to the top part of the engine. Where the hose meets the top of engine, that the Thermostat. Remove the radiator hose, then remove the two bolts from the thermostat housing, and gently pry up the housing, once freed, the thermostat is right there, just remove and replace with a rubber gasket, and replace the housing and hose, you should be good to go.

2004 Ford Explorer V6 engine over heating i replaced gasket, thermostat, top housing unit and the o-ring now it is leaking from behind the base where the thermostat housing is bolted down to just behind...


There is a gasket on the base of the housing, the housing you speak off has the sensor and a heater hose and bolts to top of the intake and also hold the thermostant, this housing does contain a rubber molded gaske, i have replaced a few of these, heres the problem i have run into a couple where the plastic was eaten away in the area that holds the gasket in place. if you remove it you will see a groove that the gasket sits inside of, if the groove is broken then replace the housing but if its good then all you need is the gasket, you will need to ask for thermostat housing gasket to engine intake, this gets confusing to a parts person as they may think you are asking for the thermostat gasket, also in the rear bottom of the housing theres a hose connected to the housing make sure thats not your leak, the hose may also be leaking. good day

How to install a thermostat


To install a thermostat, locate the drain on the radiator, this drain is at the bottom of the radiator, unscrew it and allow coolant to drain , make sure to remove the radiator cap first, let it drain enough to lower it so you dont make to much of a mess when hose is removed, let it drain about 5min, that should be enough, next is to remove the upper radiator hose, only remove the hose at engine and push it out of the way. the housing that it come off will be the thermostat housing, you will see two bolts that hold it in place, remove the bolts and pull housing off, a little coolant may drain out so keep a drain pan under the car in that area. With housing off you will see the thermostat, pull it out, note the way it comes out as you will need to install the new one the same way, noet that the spring part of the thermostant goes into engine. okay with thermostat out you will clean the mating surface, it uses a rubber oring around the thermostat so this should be easy to clean as there is no gasket material stuck to housing or engine, install gasket on new thermostat,some thermostat come with the gasket already on, if not install new gasket, put into engine , install housing and tighten bolts evenly, install hose and fill cooling system. hope this helps.

The thermostat will not stay in place no rim to stop it from falling in side engine housing i have the rubber that ataches on part but theirs nothing to stop it from falling in side first i've ever saw...


Buy a can of permatex gasket adhesive. Spray dome onto the gasket, thermostat housing and thermostat (make sure only to apply to where the gasket contacts the thermostat) and let it set up. It acts as a contact cement and will make it much easier to install your thermostat.

On almost all cars if you follow the upper radiator hose to where it goes into the motor, that is where the termostate is.

My son replaced the thermostat and thermostat housing on his 2002 ford taurus. It is leaking from the bottom of the housing. What would cause this?


COULD HAVE DAMAGED RUBBER O RING TIGHTEN TOO TIGHT OR REUSED THE OLD ORING WILL CAUSE LEAKING.IF YOUR THERMOSTAT HAS PAPER GASKET INSTEAD O RING. YOU NEED TO PUT SEALANT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE GASKET.THAT WILL KEEP IT FROM LEAKING.IF YOUR VECHICLE HAD A RUBBER O RING AROUND THERMOSTAT REPLACE WITH NEW O RING DONT PUT PAPER GASKET IF YOU HAVE THE O RING SEAL.THE O RING DOES THE SEALING NO NEED PAPER GASKET.

Where is the thermostat located on a 2000 mazda 626 2.0L


The thermostat on the 2.0 is located on the right front of the engine. It is in the thermostat housing at the engine end of the lower radiator hose. According to the auto parts stores, there is a square thermostat gasket required, however, this is not correct. On the actual thermostat, there is just a rubber gasket that goes around the thermostat itself.
