2002 Taurus SE - Thermostat Location?

My temp has been running hotter than normal, not out of the normal range, but I've had some other issues. Overflow bubbling coolant out the seems, heater acting strange (blowing luke/cold air). I topped the coolant and that seemed to help the heater temperature.

Another question, is the overflow bottle supposed to be completely sealed? Regarding my issue above with the bubbling from the seem. Maybe I need to replace the bottle.

Yes the bottle is supposed to be sealed. If I remember correctly the Bottle is about 35 bucks at the dealership. Thermostat is located under the "distributor". You may need to replace your water pump as I have. See other post

Thanks Bruce. I'll look into that. I just ordered a service manual so I know what the heck is going on. I can turn a wrench, but I really prefer to work on my Jeep
