    I have seen the gauge goes from 1/2-3/4 when the engine is hot. My heater works fine and I have full collant in the tank. I am just wondering what could be the problem.

    I have had the same problem and don't know if the instrument cluster is bad or if the thermostat is sticking. My speedo does not work well and I've been told it is an inherent problem in the instrument cluster and that GM knows all about it but is too cheap to fix or send out a warning, but with the economy the way it is, I wouldn't expect any help ftom them. And you can't just replace the speedo, you have to do the entire modular cluster. The temp gage may just be part of the problem.

Follow your upper radiator hose back to the engine. That hose connects to the thermostat housing. Unbolt the housing and inside is the thermostat

SOURCE: My 1999 Ford Windstar, the heater is Not blowing

the thermostat is in the thermostat housing. that is the end part of the upper radiator hose, where it connects to the engine. assuming the car is otherwise running OK it is not your problem, replacing it is a waste of your time. most likely the heater core is shot, that is where you should be looking. it sits within the heater box which is most likely behind the dash under the glove box, over the passenger footwell.

98 ford windstar fuse box, need anti lock brake fuse location in fuse box

The sensor codes have to be read off a computer to see the problem, either speed sensor, sounds more like ABS module. Locate the main fuse/control box under hood. There should be either a relay or large fuse marked for abs.Good Luck.Please rate me as ' helpful ' if satisfied.

I have a chilton's right in front of me but there is no clear picture of how the routing goes for the hoses....what exactly do you need help with? I can tell you that the upper hose goes to the block...where the location of the thermostat is.

Let me know what you need to hook up and I can try and supply you with the best info.
