Will a 2.2sfi thats it in a 2000 fit in a 2005 cav. That have a blowen up 2.2 ecotech please give me a call at


you need to be careful on this, the way to determine if a certain engine will fit your vehicle, look at your vin number located on the drivers side at the very bottom of your windshield. the 8th digit is the engine code, and the 10th digit is the year make. as in my case my 8th digit is an "f" which refernces a 2.4l ohc wo/egr, the year codes (10th digit) are as follows:
s.........1995
t.........1996
v.........1997
w........1998
x.........1999
y.........2000
1.........2001
2.........2002
3.........2003
4.........2004


the engine codes (8th digit) are as follows:
4.........2.2l ohv
d........2.3l ohc
t........2.4l ohc
f........2.4l ohc

the biggest thing is wether your vehicle has an egr (exhaust gas recirculation) the engines with this will not work in ones that do not and vice-versa!
hope this helps!

Where is the thermostat located


Under the hood find radiator at front of the car on either left or right side of radiator is a fat hose that will be connected to the radiator. Follow that hose to the engine and it connects to the thermostat cover that is connected to the top of the engine with two bolts holding it on. Remove both bolts, Remove thermostat cover replace with new thermostat, Scrap off old gasket on both connecting sides place in new gasket (using a gasket sealer with the gasket wouldn't hurt to) replace both bolts only SNUG tight if using sealer let sit for a hour or two. your done!!

Where is the thermostat located at, on a 3.0 v6 ,1996 ford taurus


The thermostat is located on the drivers side of the motor underneath a large wiring harness and is difficult to see. try following the top radiator hose backwards. Hope this helps....not too hard to change either.
DEPENDS. If it is the 24 valve OHC engine, the thermostat is on the passenger side, front, bottom of the engine. It's a little hard to get to but just two bolts.

Engine type


The 6.0 is neither an OHC or a DOHC. The OHC stands for over head cam which it is not. The DOHC is dual over head cam which it is not either. You should talk to someone else where ever you are ordering the chip from. The company will have someone with more smarts than that.
