6.6. Dismantle and thermostat check – only at the cooled engine

The skilled motorist is quite capable to spend such work. When you are ready to start it, it is possible to remove in the beginning working pressure in system of cooling and to prepare necessary spare details. The thermostat (for engines Duretec completely with the case), a lining of a cover for the thermostat case, and also elastic and теплостойкое condensing means is required to you. If necessary a drain cooling liquid collect in pure capacity, it it is possible, deliberating, to use after repair.

However, if you wish to check up functioning of the old thermostat, heat up in a special pan water and check up the house thermometer a water temperature. On the thermostat case consider temperature of regulation and compare it to an actual water temperature. We, naturally, do not advise to you completely to rely on "the slovenly" thermostat. Thermostats Mondeo heated up from an electricity, besides, can be checked up by means of a multimeter: measure resistance between two contacts – at well functioning regulator resistance makes 15 Ohm.


    Open a broad tank to lower pressure in system. Be cautious at нагретом the engine: danger обваривания. Therefore "pack" a cover into a thick woollen rag. Establish pure reception capacity under a radiator and disconnect the bottom hose of a radiator or turn away the drain screw of a tank. Merge about three litres of a cooling liquid.

    In double packing: in engines Duratec the thermostat consists of the case and a regulator.

    1 — Thermostat / the Case block,
    2 — Electric штекерный a socket,
    3 — the Spring of the valve of the thermostat,
    4 — the Valve,
    5 — «Klapannaja a short circuit spring»,
    6 — the Regulating element.

    Release a hose collar on the case of the thermostat and disconnect a hose. Unscrew three fixing screws of the case of the thermostat and remove the case. If it is clamped, help it to be released by easy blows of a hammer (rubber or plastic). Thoroughly clean all condensing surfaces and screw the new case with the engine block. Grease a new lining from two parties elastic and теплостойким with condensing means preliminary a little. Again connect a hose and fix шланговым a collar. Pour the merged cooling liquid and add to necessary level слабоизвестковой water. Warm up the engine on average turns and check up an installation place on tightness. If necessary add a cooling liquid and close a compensatory tank.

If the engine "has cooked" – the fan of system of cooling is guilty

The system of your cooling Mondeo copes with smooth, long passages of idling, as well as with intense mountain moving. However if the temperature raises to a boiling point, probably, "the striking" fan here at anything. Therefore it is not necessary to be engaged in car towage at once: it is necessary to cool the engine and then promptly to pass to the nearest workshop. Idling and slow driving on high transfers it is, of course, better to avoid whenever possible. Your imaginary care is not necessary, as will lead to engine heating as the radiator already any more "does not cost" before a head wind.

 Attention: in stopped and нагретом at movement the engine the fan can work and at the disconnected ignition. Therefore never potter near to the fan!
