The bolts that hold on the upper rad hose intake are 10mm. This isn't really a how to, instead its more of a video giving you a general idea on the replacement. With the right tools, changing the thermostat takes about 5-10 minutes. Remember, when you introduce air into the system, you need to add coolant to the overflow bottle, add until it reaches the cool mark then drive it for a few minutes and then top off.
Car Engine Overheating - Causes and Symptoms of Over Heating Car Engine
"Why is my car engine over heating? What causes an engine to overheat"
I hear this question all the time on my websites and especially during the
hotter summer months. I made this short video to help you determine what
might be the cause of your overheating problem and what you can rule out as
not causing the issue before you go to your mechanic. This can save you
some time, frustration and money by doing so.
"My engine overheats at freeway speeds"
When you are on the freeway you have lots of airflow across the radiator
which helps remove the heat that the engine antifreeze/coolant has
accumulated from the cooling system. Since the engine is running at a much
higher RPM than that at idle, the water pump is spinning around and pumping
coolant at a much higher rate as well.
If there is a restriction in the radiator, the coolant will not be allowed
to circulate fast enough inside the engine. The coolant will basically be
roadblocked inside the radiator due to the restriction. A radiator usually
gets build up of rust, minerals and calcium type deposits at the BOTTOM of
the radiator. This restriction really can not be removed by "flushing" with
a garden hose. In most cases this restriction will require a new radiator.
Think of this type of engine overheating problem like this. You are trying
to run a 10 mile marathon, but you have to do it with your mouth taped
shut. You can walk with your mouth shut but running at full steam for a
long distance requires more air than your nose can provide. A restricted
radiator is the biggest culprit in an engine overheating complaint on the
freeway or at higher speeds. Although, if the radiator is low on
coolant....that can also be the problem, so check coolant level first.
"I am constantly having to add coolant to my radiator, do I have a leak?"
Anytime I hear of a coolant leak or engine overheating complaint I ALWAYS
start my diagnosis with a cooling system pressure test.
"My auto mechanic said I have a head gasket leak in my car"
I get tons, literally tons of emails each week with this question. I would
say that most of them are NOT having a headgasket problem but rather a lazy
auto mechanic problem who failed to do a proper cooling system pressure
Here are a few common symptoms I would expect to see if you had a blown
headgasket or any other internal coolant leak.
1. Constantly having to add coolant to the radiator, with no visible
external leaks found
2. White steam/smoke coming out the tailpipe, and worse or more smoke at
3. Failing a cooling system pressure test, meaning the air pressure gauge
drops but there are no external leaks to be seen.
4. An engine miss fire, due to coolant leaking inside the cylinders and
fouling out the spark plugs. Lack of overall engine power and performance.
5. Usually a yellow check engine light will be on the dash, since the
computer sees the engine miss fire and stores that code inside the computer
6. Lack of engine compression. A manual compression test should be done on
each cylinder to prove that there is a compression problem with 1 or more
cylinder. This is different from the PRESSURE test which I mentioned above.
7. White powdery residue on the inside tip of the spark plug. When coolant
enters the cylinder on the inside of the engine (which It should not be
doing) the engine is going to try and burn that coolant, which it will have
a very hard time doing. This coolant is what causes the engine to miss fire
and produce the steam white smoke out the tailpipe. A white powdery
residue will some times form on the internal engine tip of the spark plug.
If you have any of those symptoms AND you have rule out all other possible
issues then you might want to consider trying this very simple and
effective head gasket sealer you can do yourself. I have had great success
with it over the years. It's a sealer additive made by K&W, called Engine
Block Sealer, but don't use it as the can direction say. I think my way of
using it works much better and its much easier.

Test Drive: 1998 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer
In this video I give a short tour and test drive of the 1998 ford
expedition eddie bauer. I take viewers on a close look through the
interior and exterior of this suv while showing details, over viewing of
features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I show the
suv idling as well as take it on a thorough test drive through the city and
highway on various surfaces. A thorough drive of this suv designed to give
others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
2000 Ford Expedition - Coolant System Flush with Degas Bottle - Clean and Thorough
We decided to research the most thorough method of Flushing the cooling
system. After researching it we came up with a method that was not only
thorough but nearly mess free. Take note that the radiator had to be
replaced during this job because it was leaking, but that really doesn't
affect the method used to do the flushing.
It's also worth noting that an auto shop will NOT typically go to the
trouble of doing this job thoroughly. They will typically do a quick
one-time flush using chemicals, which in some cases is not even as
effective as using plain old distilled water. The result will be the
continued degradation of cooling in the engine and heating in the heater
core. The more "calcification" that occurs in the coolant passages the
less heat transfer you get.

2015 Ford Expedition First Drive Review: Is it better than the new Suburban?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2015 Ford Expedition is ready to take on
its arch rival the new Chevy Suburban. But unlike the Suburban, the new
Ford Expedition no longer comes with a V8, instead Ford is only offering
the 3.5L V6 Twin turbo EcoBoost in the new SUV. So how does the newest
biggest Ford SUB stack up against the Suburban? Nathan and Roman find out
in this TFLcar first drive review.
