Where is the thermostat located on a 1997 ford Taurus SHO?


Trace the top radiator hose back to the engine. Where it ends is the thermostat housing. You'll have to drain your radiator, remove the radiator hose at the housing on the engine side, then there's usually 2 bolts that hold the housing on. remove the housing, remove the thermostat Noting which direction the thermostat is sitting, replace with the new one in the same position, put a new gasket on the thermostat housing and reverse your steps to put it back together. NOTE**** DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING BOLTS*** if you strip them or snap them off you will be looking at a major repair bill.

I think i have located the thermostat but there is something mounted about it that would have to be unbolted in order to get to the thermostat, does anyone know what this is and if i can get to the...


You state that you think you have located the thermostat. The part that will need to be unbolted and removed is the thermostat housing. Simply remove the radiator hose and remove the bolts holding the housing in place. You may need to tap the housing gently to break it loose. The thermostat is located in the housing. Be sure to carefully scrap off any remaining gasket on the thermostat housing and the engine where the housing sits. Replace the thermostat and install a new gasket, replace housing, tighten bolts evenly and reattach radiator hose. Top off the radiator to replace any lost coolant.

Change thermostat 1998 grand marquis


Locate the water hose at the top of the radiator and follow it to the top of the engine block. There you will find the thermostat housing. Remove the two bolts and remove the housing. Pay attention as to how the thermostat is sitting in the housing. Lift it out and put in the new thermostat the same way. Make sure you replace the thermostat housing gasket. Reassemble the housing and add anti-freeze until full.

How do I remove the thermostat from the 2004 GMC Envoy????


It's actually very simple. Follow the upper radiator hose to the top of the engine block. You will see a housing which the hose is attached to. Remove the hose from the housing. The housing will have 2 or 3 bolts holding it down. Remove the bolts and lift the housing off. The thermostat will be sitting there and you simply need to remove it.

Thermostat wont fit currectly using gasket supplied with thermostat-tried O ring-over thermostat leak was visible what do I do?


Hi:
With no thermostat, the thermostat housing should sit flush against the engine mount surface. The outer diameter of the thermostat should drop down into the recess provided and not even interfere with the gasket. Make sure both sides are clean , and all residue is removed. IF the thermostat will not fit into the recess provided, then take your thermostat housing to the place you bought your new thermostat, and have them fit your new one to your housing.

It needs to sit in a recess in the housing, typically if you are asking the question that you are asking, the thermostat housing may be bent or cracked. If it is nto installed correctly, it kills the housing...Must be perfectly true, and sqaure....

Thermostat replacement


IF YOU LOOK UNDER THE CAR, NEAR THE ALTERNATOR YOU WILL SEE A PLASTIC HOUSING WITH 2 PIPES LEADING ONTO IT. THE THERMOSTAT SITS IN THAT. JUST BE CAREFUL YOU DONT SNAP THE BOLTS WHEN REMOVING THE HOUSING.THE HOUSING ITSELF CAN BECOME WARPED OR CRACKED AND LEAK FLUID, A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE FOCUS. THE HOUSING COSTS AROUND £15 AND A THERMOSTAT ABOUT £6. GOOD LUCK.
