Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine. Under the housing is the thermostat. Make sure when you put it back together the spring on the thermostat goes toward the engine. GoodluckJoe
This is a followup to the previous answer. After you find the housing and remove the hose, be aware that most of the thermostat housings are made of aluminum or some other fragile metal. Spray the mounting bolts thoroughly with WD-40 or Liquid Wrench (do they still make that?) and let it sit for awhile. If you have a six-point socket, use it to loosen the bolts. In any case, go easy on them. They're fairly easy to break, and you don't want the trauma of trying to remove the remnant. THEN when you reinstall, cover the bolts with anti-seize compound so they will come out easily next time.
PS: After the bolts are removed, the housing still may not want to separate from the manifold. Tap on it gently with a wooden hammer handle or some other device that won't crack it. Eventually you can slip a fine screwdriver or spatula under it to take it off. Be sure to scrape the gasket area clean.
Sorry to be so verbose. Truth is, this is NOT the easiest job to do on these engines.
Follow the top hose from the top of the radiator it is about a 2'' by about 1'6'' long to a hose clamp . Right under the hose clamp is the thermostat housing it has got three 10mm bolts holding it on the engine take that off and there's your thermostat , the thermostat itself has got a split O ring on the thermostat instead of a regular gasket it just pulls out and there you have it. IT DOES NOT HAVE A REGULAR GASKET JUST A O -RING. i DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS GUY COMES FROM TO THINK IT HAS A GASKET!
follow the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing on engine. Thermostat is located under the thermostat housing.
the fuel filter on a 1986 ford ranger is located on the inside of the frame on the drivers side in front of the gas tank.
The thermostat for this car is located in the water pump housing from the lower radiator hose.
The thermostat is almost always located on the top of the engine block, usaully in front of the carberator. Unfortionately, sometimes it is located on the bottom the block
It is in the big water hose on the in side
Parts that old replace them with new ones.
Replace it with the exact same temperature thermostat as the one you removed. Do not run the engine without a thermostat. The thermostat is required to keep the engine running at the optimum temperature that will give the best performance and mileage. If it is overheating running it without a thermostat is not the solution.
Is on the engine block on the upper water hose.
Its on the front of the Intake. Just follow the top radiator hose from the radiator the thermostat housing.
Take the top radiator hose loose from the top of the engine. The thermostat is under there. just pry it off with a screwdriver.
IF YOU FOLLOW THE LOWER RADIATOR HOSE TO THE ENGINE,YOU WILL LOCATE THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING.THERE ARE TWO BOLTS THAT HOLD THE HOUSING ON. THE THERMOSTAT SETS INSIDE THE HOUSING.
Follow the upper radiator hose towards the engine block, The part the hose clamps to is the thermostat housing, the thermostat is located under this, generally this requires moving 2 or 3 bolts to acces the thermostat.
all I am trying to fimd out is where is the location of the thermostat on a 1986 Honda Civic I don't want to join anything I thought that you or this web site would help me guess not thanks Lanny
Look at your radiator, on one side you will see and hose that goes to your engine about 2"dia. then you will see a alumium housing with 2 bolts securing it, underneath that you will find the thermostat, remove and replace it how you see it.
Almost all thermostats are located where the top radiator hose connects to the engine. The tube that the hose goes over should have two bolts holding it on. The thermostat is under that.
FRONT @ CENTER OF MOTOR FOLLOW TOP RADIATAR HOSE
Should be in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
The thermostat is located on the passenger side of the engine. It you follow the top radiator hose to the engine, it is clamped to a housing. The thermostat is inside this housing. The housing is bolted to the engine block. There is a gasket to seal between the two parts. If you remove the housing, the thermostat just drops out.
pull the trans take out the old clutch and put a new one in then put it back together. or do what i do i buy a book on my ranger and fix it myself
U unbolt the Housing where the upper Radiator hose Mountes 2 the engine.MAKE SURE U get the CORRECT Degree thermostat 4 that model.Clean the gasket surfaces (if a O-Ring isn't used) get a NEW gasket & make SURE U PUT the NEW Thermostat in the CORRECT way-IF U don't U WILL FRY the ENGINE bcause of a REVERSED thermostat.
what is the mpg rate on a 1986 ford ranger 2.9 v6
Check thermostat make sure fans work replace coolant easily done check manual
Drain the radiator into a container. Remove the upper radiator hose from the engine at the thermostat. Remove the bolts, housing and the thermostat. Clean both surfaces and install the thermostat and gasket. Reinstall the housing and upper hose and top off the coolant.
Should be located in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose Drain about 1 Gallon of coolant from the radiator REmove this housing Note how thermostat is installed Clean both surfaces Replace thermostat and gasket Re-fill coolant slowly to prevent an air lock Start engine and check for leaks Run engine to normal operating temperature with heater on Re-check coolant level
