SOURCE: Replace thermostat in 2000 ford ranger

the open pipe that you took the hose off of is the thermostat housing, you will need to remove this to reveal the thermostat, make sure you use a new gasket with sealant when reinstalling thermostat housing to prevent leaks and dont over tighten the bolts,run both bolts down as far as you can before final tightning

SOURCE: 2002 ford focus svt, overheating,

If I understand your problem correctly if sounds as if the engine mount bolts broke which allowed the engine to drop which may have kinked your radiator hose, that caused a flow problem and the engine over heated.
If this is what you are saying it is possible the inner liner of the hose ruptured and folded in causeing a restriction in the hose, this use to be fairly common with hose's in the 50's and 60's but is pretty rare these days.
You need to check the hose for soft spots, if you do not find anything there its time for some tests, the first would be to remove the thermostat and run the engine to see if you have flow in the radiator, if your radiator has a cap at the side tank run the engine with the coolant a little low, if there is flow your will be able to see the coolant coming out of the tubes inside at the top of the core. If there is no flow you need to take a better look at the hose and possible the water pump impeller.

the truck has a history of getting a small crack in the radiator tank, that makes you think the hose is leaking.

Overheating no leaks focus 2000


..Sounds like the thermostat is sticking closed. Replace and make sure all coolant hose's are in good condition. Smoke may be steam when engine is getting too hot and leaking out of hose's because of high pressure.

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.

USUALLY, the inlet to the radiator comes of the upper part of the engine and goes into the lower part of the radiator. The outlet, or return, from the radiator comes out of the upper part of the radiator and goes to the thermostat housing, also USUALLY on the upper part of the block. It's confusing cause just cause the hose connection is upper or lower on the block or radiator doesn't tell you where the lines and tubing inside is. Look at the ends of the hoses where they connect to the block. The thermostat should be under a hemispherical dome about 2 to 3 inches in diameter with a snout that the hose connects to. USUALLY the hose TO the radiator is just a snout. The thermostat housing is USUALLY up top where you can get at it. You can just call the sevice department of any Toyota dealer and they will tell you for sure. Sevice manangers love to let you know that they know more than you do. The folks at PepBoys and O'Reilly's like to show off too.
