For most cars and trucks you look for the upper radiator hose and follow it back to the engine. The ford thermostats are round and will have three bolts holding it to the engine. Do not cross thread the bolts when you put it back together, since they are into aluminum.

How do I replace thermostat in a 2010 ford escape xlt

On the top of your radiator is a big hose. Follow that house to the top of the motor. Where that house attaches to the motor, is the thermostat housing. Housing is usually held on with 2 bolts, remove housing and you'll find the thermostat.

Thermostat pipe is leaking land rover freelander 2001 td 4

Your question is not very clear, but I will do my best to help you. The hose that connects to the thermostat on the engine block could be leaking or the thermostat housing (inside it is the thermostat) has a leaky gasket. Either way, change out the hose or the gasket!

How do I get the Thremostat housing off my 1992 ford Ranger XLT 2.3

To change that thermostat you need to follow the top radiator hose to the motor from the radiator. It will lead to the thermostat housing on the block. The housing will be anchored with (2) bolts to the block (I think). Take the housing off and the thermostat is housed will have to replace it with a manufactured suggested thermo(probably 180* or 200 degree thermo).

U should be able to locate it by following the upper radiator hose to the engine, where the hose is clamped to a housing . The thermostat is in the housing, which is usually secured w/ 2 bolts. If this doesn't help, let me know.
