If yours is a 2L, 4 cylinger engine, it is locate on the drivers ise of the engine or your RH side looking into the engine compartment.. I is underneath the air intake hosing - so they will need to be move out of the way. Follow the upper radiator hose to a hosing on the right side of the engine- the thermostat is in ther. Note this hosing is not metal so be certain not to overtighten or cross thread the mounint hardware.
how do you change a thermostat for a 1997 Ford Contour
usually located in a removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose

It is not at the end of the upper radiator hose. Please don't follow the first person answer.
where is the thermostat located on a 1989 ford tempo
I was looking at fordparts.com and for the 1995 Ford Contour 2.0 liter four cylinder it shows ( Motorcraft RT-1150 , a 190 * F thermostat )
You can uninstall thermostat and install new thermost under air filter and look coolant hose by sensor gang. I did my own car.
On the engine end of the upper rad hose. Make sure when you replace it the spring goes toward the engine.
it is located where the transmission is and is very easy to change. on a 2000 ford contour that is.
The Ford Contour was produced from the years 1995 to 2000. The front pump transmission seal in a 1998 Ford Contour is located very close to the camshaft.
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.
