How do you replace the thermostat located on a 1992 Ford Ranger 2.9L V6?
Follow the upper radiator hose to the engine block where it is held by a clamp. This is the thermostat housing. The thermostat lies underneath. Other engine parts may have to be loosened or removed to have good access. Best bet is to get a chilton service manual (for step by step process) from your local auto parts store or visit your dealer. The dealer parts guys may be able to give you some information. Public libraries also have vehicle service manuals in the reference section. Check it out.
To change that thermostat you need to follow the top radiator hose to the motor from the radiator. It will lead to the thermostat housing on the block. The housing will be anchored with (2) bolts to the block (I think). Take the housing off and the thermostat is housed inside.you will have to replace it with a manufactured suggested thermo(probably 180* or 200 degree thermo).

Replace with correct thermostat with the correct side facing engine, new gasket and a little sealant.
