Its best to take off the section of exhaust that runs around the back of the engine. There are 4 bolts that holds the heat shield on, then 6 that bolts it to each exhaust manifolds.

New water pump and thermostat also flushed radiator and backflushed the heater core. Only heats up to 170 heat goes away once you slow down. When running down the road it has some heat but not near hot...

Sounds like your new thermostat is not closing properly. Been hearing ALOT of problems w/new thermostats - sounds like alot of chinese made are flooding the market. It sounds like you did everything right..

What temperature thermostat do I need for my 2004 ford explorer?

The standard thermostat temperature for alot of vehicals is a 195 degree thermostat, manufacturers use this temperature because running the engine at this temperature helps control emission output alot better, if your still unsure of your thermostat temperature I would call your nearest ford dealer and ask their service department what temperature thermostat should be used in your particular model ford....

My car ran hot and I want to know is it gonna be a lot of money to get it fixed?

You can answer your own question better than anyone. Check coolant level and thermostat operation first. Check everything for leaks. Coolant coming out of anywhere is not acceptable. White smoke from tail pipe, coolant in engine oil or oil in coolant, indicates an internal engine problem (head gasket or internal crack). I've listed a bunch of stuff. It's up to you to check and narrow down the problem!!!
good luck, post back if you need help with any of this.

Truck running hot

your radiator could be pluged up internally especially if you havent bought this new. alot of people will dump in a radiator leak stoper if the radiator has a small leak and that is not the right thing to do because the stuff can plug up a lot more than the hole.if you take the radiator out and know of a radiator shop they will flow test your radiator and let you know if it is pluged up internally or not i hope this helps you and please rate my solution.
thank you

My s type over heats and blows cold air please help

hey deanfuller,
Ok, ive seen this alot with this year s-type, the only problem is its always something different.

What i would do first is warm the car up, NOT TO HOT, but warm it up and start feeling hoses. Turn your heat on full blast and let the car idle. When the car is warm all your coolant hoses should be warm, check the top and bottom radiator hoses the hoses before and after the thermostat.

I mean it coolant be coolant gumming up, radiator plugged, bad thermostat, bad or plugged heater core, bad fluid valve just a ton of stuff soo its hard to say one.

But after you checking the hoses, this is what i think it is, this is just a educated guess. I think its your fluid valve not opening. This valve is located on the passenger side of the radiator all the way on the bottom. There are i think either 2 or 3 small hoses coming to and from it. Now this valve is electronically controlled so you have to get a multi meter and make sure it is getting voltage at the 2 pin connector. If it is, then you can replaced the valve.

I know this is alot, i hope this helps you out. Start with this and let me know if you need more.
