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.
Do NOT use a radiator stop leak additive! check out my sites for more free

GATES: Cooling System Flush: Cleaning Neglected Vehicles FULL Version
The engine cooling system is one of the most critical elements of engine
performance and reliability but is often the most neglected maintenance
item for all vehicles on the road today. Common flush procedures are not
enough to remove the amount of contaminants present in neglected vehicles.
With the Gates PowerClean tool, technicians can now recommend a more
thorough flush procedure to consumers. Doing so will increase engine
cooling efficiency, protect the life of the water pump and eliminate
unnecessary customer comebacks.
Replacing blown out spark plug
A common problem with Ford Triton engines is that they will blow the spark
plug out, usually # 3 or # 4 on the passenger side. Some people say the
only repair is to take the head off. There is a tool designed to drill
out, re-tap, & install an insert. I've done it many times and so far they
all are still holding. I thought you might like to see how it's done
before you do one yourself.
