mad Thermostat problems

I have a 1995 Ford T-Bird and have had to replace the thermostat THREE times. What would cause the thermostat to keep going out?

Re: Thermostat problems

What engine do you have and what is your definition of the stat " going out " ?
What are you or your car doing when the stat goes out ? What does the old stat look
like after you pull it out ? What stat and where do you buy the replacement ? Need a lot
more info.

Have a 4.6 Liter engine. Simply driving the car. When I say go out I mean the car overheats and I lose all the coolant.

Re: Thermostat problems

That engine is famous for manifold leaks. Have someone check it out. I know it's summer
but do you have heat in the cab when the engine over heats ?

Re: Thermostat problems

When you say it goes out, do you mean it gets stuck open....or close? Does your car smoke at all?
