Thermostat location on 55 ford escort van

The thermostat is locatud on the top of the engine towards the front underneath the upper radiator hose. You shouldnt have to drain all coolant to change the thermostat. There are usually only two bolts holding the thermostat housing to the engine.

1991 ford escort hatchback no heat , rear defroster has never worked could be a thermostat problem ?

could be a thermostat problem if it is stuck open or none in engine. also check your water valve to see if it is working properly. Might need a system flush as sometimes the heater core will clog over time. as for the rear defroster, 3 things to check. first turn on rear defroster and check for voltage to window. if no voltage check fuse and switch.

1987 ford escort Gt hatchback 1.9 ltr engine doesn't start all the time some times it just clicks maybe solanoid. I push start it and it starts being a standard. When it turns over it turns over great....

Starter is beginning to fail. It has a dead spot or two and my luck of the draw you are occasionally ending up on the dead spot.

Plan to eventually replace the starter.

Hope that helps.
