SOURCE: where is the thermostat location

Just follow the top radiator hose to the engine. That is where the thermostat housing is located on most engines. The housing is held on by two or three bolts and is connected to the hose. Be carefull taking the bolts out. If they don't come out with minimal wrench force, the gasket around the housing has leaked antifreeze on the bottom bolt and rusted it tight. I snapped one off and had to have the car towed to my machanic to have it drilled out and retapped. It wasn't pretty and cost me an extra $80.00 to what shoud have been a simple job. You may want to consider getting stainless steel bolt to replace the stock bolts. They won't rust.

Does a 1996 mercury sable and 2001 ford taurus have the same engine


Its possible. In this time span Ford used two different motors, the overhead valve (OHV) Vulcan V6, and the Duratec 24V V6, which will bear the 24v DOHC badge on the front fender.

Location of thermostat 1997 ford taurus dohc 24 valve v6


on the 1997 Taurus DOHC v6 the thermostat is conveniently located at the front passenger side of the engine, just up over top of the the mud guard. There's about a dozen screws (bolt heads) to take off, slip out the mud guard and there's the lower radiator hose and the thermostat housing! The thermostat is held in by a reusable O ring and is pretty well engineered for being in such a surprising location.

Shaun just answered my question on a thermostat change on a 3.0 in my 1998 Taurus. Is the answer the same if it is the 24V DOHC?


Hi, this is Shaun again. The answer is the same for a 24v DOHC. Coolant systems are pretty simple and haven't evolved much with different vehicles and motors. It's pretty much the same process with all vehicles.

Where is the oil sending unit on a 1996 ford taurus 3.0 liter engine located? glenn


On 3.0L OHV engines, the oil pressure sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the flywheel. On 3.0L DOHC engines the sensor is located on the left side of the engine block above the oil filter. On 3.4L DOHC engines the sensor is screwed into the oil filter adapter. The oil pressure sensor operates the oil pressure warning lamp.
