changing thermostat

I need to change the thermostat on my 1999 Escort. I have no idea how to do this or even find the thermostat housing. Could anyone please help me locate these things and give me advice about how to change it? Thanks for your help.

Re: changing thermostat

the thermostat housing is where the top hose connects to the radiator typically. it's like an L shaped aluminium tube on my car.

you will have to drain ur radiator, then remove the top hose and thermostat housing. It's like 2 bolts. then the thermostat retainer should be pulled out and the thermostat and it's rubber grommit thing should come out easy peasy.

Then put ur new thermo in, replace the retainer and bolt it back on! Reconnect hoses and bobs ur uncle.

It's worth while to flush out ur cooling system while you've got the hoses off, too.

Re: changing thermostat

no need to drain ur radiator, u won't make that much of a mess with just what's in the top hose and thermo housing.

Re: changing thermostat on 1999Escort 2.0

For convenience, remove coil pack and coil pack bracket located above thermostat housing. You will need 6mm hex driver for 4 coil pack bolts; 10mm hex socket for 3 bracket bolts and the upper thermostat housing bolt; 8mm hex socket for the two lower housing bolts.
