Where is the thermostat housing located on a 1993 Ford Tempo?
follow the upper radiator hose
the thermostat on the 3.0L engines is located in a water box, formed in the timing belt end of the intake manifold. This thermostat has an air bleed valve located in the thermostat flange. 3.3L and 3.8L engines have the thermostat housing in a water box formed in the drive-belt side of the intake manifold Under the housing where the upper radiator hose hooks to the engine.
I have a 1993 Dakota with a 5.2L and just changed the thermostat. Probably in the same place as your 92. Follow the upper radiator hose towards the engine. The thermostat is below the housing at the end of the hose. It is tucked in behind the alternator but with a long extension on your ratchet you can get at the two bolts that hold down the thermostat housing. Goodluck.

Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the engine. The thermostat is located within the housing where the radiator hose connects tot he engine. Drain radiator, remove hose from thermostat housing, remove the bolts that fasten the housing to the engine and pull off housing, pull out thermostat noticing the direction it is pointing.

Trace your top radiator hose to the engine. Where it stops is your thermostat housing. It should be under the distributor. It has 2 10mm size nuts that have to come off, then you can remove the housing and pry the old thermostat out.
