The thermostat is located on the driver's side of the engine. It is difficult to see, but it is behind the alternator. The lower radiator hose goes to a metal tube, that is part of the thermostat housing. Below is a picture of thermostat and temp sensor location (alternator removed).

Where is the thermstat at in a 1998 ford taurus?


I'm guessing you can't find it because it's in a separate housing or located under the lower battery tray in the housing (depending on model of engine). Even though this is specific for 1998; I believe it's the same for 1996-1999 Taurus's. I have access to illustrations, but only .gif and/or .bmp extensions were available which would not copy here. If you need these, I will try an extension change to .jpg. Good luck, this should be enough info. It is helpful to include the engine size in question, for future reference...
