Hi chaps,
Decided to go to the Ford Agents and look at the "parts list", order what hoses are available, and then the "eyeball" the job, moving whatever other components [ besides the A/C compressor ] that are in the way. Seems the hose goes from the top of the `stat ,across the front of the cyl` head and then connects up to a housing mounted in the valley between the cyl` banks.
Thermostat is rediculously expensive at £150 !!
Thanks anyway, for your time.
Kind Regards, Guy.

Mini cooper 2004 heater blowing cold after changing thermostat

you did not fully purge the air out of the Coolant system. You have an air pocket prevent in the coolant to flow properly.
There should be a separate bleeder on a high spot on the engine. Many cars today have the radiator lower than the engine so they need to have a purge valve up on the engine or a separate Fill that is above the top of the radiator

How to back flush heater core 2007 grand prix

drain coolant system locate heater cores hoses going through firewall you need to buy the radiator flush kit at any auto parts stores. remove heater cores hoses from one end or buy extra long heater hoses same size as heater core hoses in vechicle at auto parts store use the flush kit when you flush through one of the heater core hoses let the other hose drain in a drain pan when you use home garden hose use low water pressure dont use garden hose to the max or you will rupture heater core. your best bet let radiator shop flush whole coolant system. because heater cores hoses are in a tight spot.make sure engine off if you just going to flush out heater core only .after flushing heater core good time to replace heater core hoses.if job too hard or complicated let radiator shop flush out radiator the engine block and heater core because if radiator stopped up or engine block stopped up the gunk and rust will reenter plug up heater core.if you tight on money you can flush out your own radiator.drain out radiator using large drain pan. remove top radiator hose and remove bottom radiator hoses connect to water pump.use garden hose with flush kit part with water pressure not too high put garden hose to top radiator hose run water until clear water run out bottom radiator hose in drain pan,the flush out engine block remove thermostat.if you had another spare thermostat housing with RTV SILICONE SEALANT THAT HAS SET UP INSTALL THERMOSTAT HOUSING BACK TO ENGINE WITHOUT THERMOSTAT FLUSH OUT THE ENGINE BLOCK, WHEN DONE INSTALL NEW THERMOSTAT THEN INSTALL ORIGINAL THERMOSTAT HOUSING WITH NEW ORING WHICH YOU BUY AT DEALERSHIP.IF ALL SOUND COMPLICATED LET RADIATOR SHOP FLUSH OUT COOLANT SYSTEM.

Where is the thermostat on a 2001 ford taurus sel located

The thermostat is located under a housing bolted to the engine. To locate the housing, follow the large hose coming out of the top of the radiator to the engine.

I would like to see a diagram of where the thermostat is located in a 2003 Lexus RX300

I checked for a diagram but couldn't find one. However, here are the's website instructions for changing the thermostat, out with the old, in with the new:


If the radiator is filled to the top with coolant and the engine is run without the radiator cap in place, the coolant will expand and spill over as the engine warms up.

  • Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
  • Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
  • Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
  • Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
  • Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
  • The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
  • When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
  • Install the gasket.
  • Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
  • When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
  • You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
  • Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
  • If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.
NOTE When a paper gasket is used and the recess is in the thermostat housing, it is a good practice to position the thermostat into the recess and glue the gasket to hold it in place. If it falls out of its groove during installation, the outlet housing can be cracked or a coolant leak will result. Before tightening the water outlet housing, try to rock it back and forth to be sure it is flush. Housings are often cracked during this step.

How do you change thermostat and where is the location

remove the coolant cap to relieve the pressure. Follow the radiator hose to the motor. The metalic/aluminum part that the hose is connected to holds the thermostat. 2 or 3 bolts hold it to the engine. remove these bolts & the thermostat. there may or may not be a gaket with your model. If so, replace them both. You will lose some coolant. add coolant when you're done, Make sure the engine is cold when u do all this.

Car running hot would an oil change stop it

The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line. It's job is to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.Or trace the hose back until you find the blockage.The hose goes in to the engine to a crossover and comes out the other side to near the thermostat housing,the blockage may be there.

The thermostat is located at the upper radiator hose end of the engine. The hose will connect to a housing that will have to be removed in order to change the thermostat.
While you have the thermostat housing removed, make sure you flush the old coolant out and replace with new.
Good luck.

I just changed the thermostat on 3.4 L 1999 Pontiac Gr Am GT THINKING IT WOULD FIX THE OVER HEATING. But there is white steam coming out the exhaust! The oil is not milky so it's not a head gasket. There's...

Are you adding coolant?
Yes ......means it's going somewhere.
Fill the coolant tank to the top...right to the top....leave the cap off and run the engine.
If you see bubbles you need a head gasket.
The intake gasket is another source of coolant leaks and at this area the coolant can be sucked into the engine and produce a white smoke.
Does the car run rough at the first start in the morning....could be antifreeze burning off in the cylinder or area that was leaking overnight meaning cyl gasket or intake gasket.
Look at the rear head to block area below the exhaust manifold.
Is there any trace of coolant or stains of coolant......yes means head gasket time.
Pressurizing each cyl at a time with air with the valves closed in that cyl will quickly show the location of the bad head gasket with bubbles coming out of the fill tank on the bad cyl (s).
Head gasket leaks don't always mean milky oil.
