Begin by removing any parts that may restrict your movement such as your airfilter housing and hoses. Once you have a good clear veiw of the valve cover remove it, then you must remove both your exhaustand and intake manifolds, as well as your thermostat and hose port. Now you'll have to remove both cams, be sure that you mark you timing belt before removal (in replacing the bolts on your cams the bolts should be tightened to 14ft/lbs of torque). Finally you remove the bolts from the head (more than likely hex key bolts, which means you'll need those tools you may not on hand). Clean the surface of your block where the head goes and get the tighting sequince and the amount of torque. To finish redo everything you undid and drive.

Here is the best info I can give you or anyone attempting to check your cylinder head. When taking off everything just unbolt your exhaust from your manifold and your intake manifold from the engine block and remove your head bolts from the cylinder head. This way you can take off all three pieces as one unit.

You can not put them back on this way and separate them once out of the engine bay. It sure does make it easier and eliminates some time as if you removed them seperately.

This was told to me by the Ford dealership, just another way the charge you by the book price yet they do it easier for less time and more of your money!

Where is the clutch gasket on a 1993 probe gt?

In my 20 plus years of working professionally on cars, and for Ford Motor Company, I have never heard of a "clutch gasket." I have absolutely no idea what you are asking about. But if you want to see some funny blank stares, you could go to the parts dept of your nearest Ford dealership and ask for a clutch gasket. Are you talking about a seal in the hydraulic clutch system? If so, then you don't need to worry about finding a seal, since hydraulic clutch componets are serviced as assemblies. In other words, if you have a leaking master cylinder, replace the master cylinder. If you have a leaking slave cylinder, replace that.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1994 Ford Probe GT and how do you replace it?

Thermostat locationI own a '91 Probe GL, which is 4 cylinders, and the thermostat is located in the housing which is at the engine end of the radiator hose coming from the top side of the radiator. Just look for that main hose, and follow it to the cylinder head. The thermostat should be in that housing. -ShaunThe thermostat is located on the right side of the engine looking in, in between the intake manifold and the air filter box, underneath the wiring. This is in a 1994 Ford Probe GT 6 cylinder.To replace the thermostat, you really need to remove the intake manifold and this can be up to two or three hours work alone, even for a qualified mechanic.
