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

Where is thermostat


Look where the upper and lower radiator hoses go after they come out of the radiator. There should be a housing on one of the two with 2 or 3 bolts holding it on. Remove the housing and the thermostate should be underneath. You will need a new gasket also...

Where is the thermostate located


The thermostat will be located either at the upper radiator hose inlet to the engine, or it will be located at the lower radiator hose inlet to the engine.

Remember that the spring end of the thermostat should always go towards the engine, and not towards the hose.

Also with a lower mounted thermostat, when it comes time to add coolant you should dis-connect the upper radiator hose at the radiator and fill the engine through the radiator hose, if you do not then there will be very little coolant in the engine block until the thermostat opens up, and by then your engine could be toast.

I need to now how many bolts the thermostate has and were they may be.


There is 3 of them. It is a rounded off triangle shape housing. Just follow the upper radiator hose and it will bring you right to the housing. You can use a ratchet with short extension and an elbow

Upper radiator housing broke off


you can get a replacement at minimal cost at auto parts store like Napa or Oreillys. it is called the thermostat cover/housing. if you have broken bolts and there should be 2 of them you will have to remove them with a tool called easy outs. and replace the bolts.
