Hello,If you are running your Capri on plain water only chences are immense that your water pump impeller has completely corroded away or simply desintegrated due to years of friction in water and then merely a rough edged razor sharp flat dish remains rather then an i^peller, which obviously does not circulate the water as required.Recommend you check water circulation by removing top hose at thermmostat and remove thermostat on cold engine an then start up and observe if water is actually being pressed out/forced trough the themostat housing. Dont let it run long, just to see if circulation is really there, otherwise add water continuously without pressurising the cooling circuit (garden hose not pressed into radiator cap but at a distance and merely let water run without pressure) at radiator cap to obseve a few minutes more
JakeBelgiumAnswerthey all do that. lol. i have a 1991 it does the same thing if you let the car ideal. you will see the fan wont even kick on until its up that high. i thought something was wrong with my car also. then i saw photos of others on eBay of the dash with the car running and there was just as high as mine.you can pull the fuss out off one of the relay under the hood next to the left front of the fire wall it's in the corner cover in rubber pull the rubber off pull the fuss out and the fan will stay on but when you stop the car put the fuss back in or you might have a brokin vacum hose that will make car run hot or a headgasket might be going out that if you radater is good
Since you had to unplug the wire connector, there is most likely damage to the connector. Check it carefully.
it is right across from my thermostat and i have a 2000 mercury cougur it srews in and out.
The thermostat will not open properly when installed backwards. The coolant will not flow and the engine could overheat.
where is the thermostat at on a 2000 mercury mystique
No, only one thermostat. It does have two temperature sensors though.
where is the thermostat
Your 1996 Mercury Villager minivan with the 3.0 L - SOHC V6 engine is designed to use The Ford Motorcraft RT 1170 thermostat ( 190 degrees F / 88 degrees C )
Need to know where is the thermostat located on a 1996 mercury tracer.
I had similar problem with a mercury tracer I owned I had two problems with mine, One the thermostat was faulty(was old and rusted out) and the temperature sending unit wasn't working right ( Fan did not come on at needed temperature 205 degrees) so I had to replace them both. Hope this helps
Did you put the thermostat in backwards? I would check to see where the steam is coming from. I had to change out small hoses for the same problem with mine.
If you're talking about the sensor for internal temperature it's in the dashboard next to where the shift lever is.
How do you change the thermostat in 1999 Mercury Villager
There is a thermostat on all cars.
if the top hose is hot then the thermostat is opening
The thermostat for a 1999 Mercury Mystique is inside of the top water inlet. Remove the top radiator hose from the engine, and then inlet can be removed to get to the thermostat.
On a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis : The Original Equipment engine cooling thermostat would have been ( around 192 * Fahrenheit )
mercury, as used in older thermometers before it was replaced with alcohol and red die
you might have installed it upside down or the new thermostat might be defective or the wrong temperature range it could also be something unrelated, possibly a blown fuse
Remove the water supply hose from the top of your 2000 Mercury Villager thermostat housing. Remove the thermostat housing retaining bolts. The old thermostat will simply lifts out. Drop in the new thermostat and reverse the process.
the library should have a shop manual for this vehicle, you can make copies of the right sections :)
The average temperature on Mercury is 167C.
Mercury is a liquid at room temperature
The freezing point of mercury is -38,8290 0C.The boiling point of mercury is 356,73 0C.The temperature of mercury indoor or outdoor is the temperature of the environment.
You most definately unpluged the sensor wire. It's a single red wired that plugs onto a sensor just passed the thermostat.
