Where is the thermstat at in a 1998 ford taurus?


I'm guessing you can't find it because it's in a separate housing or located under the lower battery tray in the housing (depending on model of engine). Even though this is specific for 1998; I believe it's the same for 1996-1999 Taurus's. I have access to illustrations, but only .gif and/or .bmp extensions were available which would not copy here. If you need these, I will try an extension change to .jpg. Good luck, this should be enough info. It is helpful to include the engine size in question, for future reference...

Thermostat housing replacement


These are the steps to replace the thermostat but are applicable to remove and replace the housing also. 2.0L DOHC Zetec Engine WARNING Do not mix Standard (green) Coolant with Extended Life Coolant (orange). If mixing occurs, drain engine cooling system and refill with originally equipped coolant type. If this contamination occurs the service change interval on Extended Life Coolant will be reduced from 6 years/150,000 miles to 3 years/30,000 miles.

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Drain the engine coolant to a point below the water thermostat.
  3. Disconnect the connector from the camshaft position sensor.
  4. Remove the bolts and move to one side the water hose connection.
  • Remove the water thermostat and seal from the water thermostat housing.
  • Inspect the seal and the water thermostat.
  • To install:
    1. Replace the thermostat and seal into the housing.
    2. Connect the connector to the camshaft position sensor.
    3. Fill the cooling system.
    4. Start the engine and check all hoses and connections for leaks. Allow the engine to warm up so that the water thermostat opens.
    5. Stop the engine. Top off the coolant recovery reservoir as necessary to maintain minimum cold fill level.
