On our 2000 Ford Contour 2.0 L 4 cylinder, the thermostat is located in a housing on the right side of the engine. Trace the upper radiator hose to the engine and it is located in that housing. To replace, disconnect the radiator hose from the housing. Be prepared for a 1/2 gallon or so of anit-freeze to spill. Remove the front plate from the housing by unscrewing the 3 screws using a hex head type screwdriver. Thermostat and gasket should slip right out.

On the engine end of the upper rad hose. Make sure when you replace it the spring goes toward the engine.

Normally the thermostat is located at the point where the upper radiator hoses connects to the engine.

There is usually an ECT (engine coolant temp) sensor and a CTS (coolant temp sensor) located around the thermostat housing mounted in the intake. One sends coolant temp to the guage, the other sends temp to computer.
