SOURCE: How do you change the thermostat on a 99 mercury

The thermostat is beneath the inlet housing from the top radiator hose. You are better off working on a cold engine and adding a little antifreeze when you finish to replace what you will lose when you remove the parts.

There should be 2 bolts holding down the fixture and there will be a round "O" ring type gasket sealing the fixture. Observe the direction of the thermostat so that you replace it right side up instead of backwards which is possible in some cars. Then replace the gasket and lightly bolt the housing down evenly. It is a soft metal and brute force will bend or break parts. Start your car and check the water level after you have turned on the heater and the car is hot. Add antifreeze to the overflow tank.

Myself, I take a half gallon bottle of hot soapy water and wash the engine area off to get rid of the antifreeze smell and it makes it easier to detect a leak if you have one.

SOURCE: I want 2 change 2004 mercury mountaineer transmission fluid

The best way to change it is to flush it out You can do it yourself, but I do not recommend. A shop that is good like a Monro or Firestone usually charges about 100 bucks to flush and that includes the fluid. If you do it yourself, you will save about 60 dollars, but you risk damage to your radiator.

you will need a hose and an adapter. you back out the lower, or upper cooler line for your trans, whichever is the easiest to get to, (Some trucks have an auxiliary engine oil cooler, but make sure you are flushing the trans lines) put the adapter into the rad where you removed the line, and put a hose from each one down into a bucket. Have about 14 qt's of ford trans fluid ready. Put the funnel into the trans dip stick, and start the engine. pour the qts into the dipstick tube while the old fluid is pumped into the bucket. When you have about two gallons pumped into the bucket shut the engine off and reattach the line into the radiator. start up the engine and check your level. Fill with additional fluid if needed.

note: some say you should drop the pan. two things, you only change half the fluid when you do it that way, and second if you need to change the filter because it is clogged, it is too late for the transmission. The filter is only there to protect the valve body, not keep the fluid clean.

Hope this helps

Looks like 99 to 01. they are a pain to pull. I would go mine before pulling another. Old vehicle. Junk yard part. Most likely you have many plugs to replace on it.

The lock actuator is broken. Seems as if it went out in the unlock position. So you cant lock it. Replace the actuator and you will be able to lock it again.

The part that the thermostat housing bolts to is leaking around the top. what is this part and can i replace it. it's a 2002 2w 6cyl mercury mountianeer.


Thermostats usually connect to another hose so you should be able to replace it. Just go to autoaone they should have whatever you need.
