About Me Auto Enthusiast, Mechanic

Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Thermostat Housing and Outlet:

Have gone through 3 of these they are all pulling out the slugs of the lower housing causing the upper housing to separate thus leaking, they should be reimbursing me labor for the faulty design.

Did not fit

About Me Casual Driver

Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Thermostat Housing and Outlet:

This part did not fit my 2001 Ranger which is a 4.0 engine. the gooseneck is 85* and it hits the bottom of the throttle body which means the hose will not fit. I had to use the old gooseneck off of my old one, which is 90*.

          This is an exact replacement for a 1998 4.0 SOHC Explorer and fit perfectly. The dealer offers a complete replacement with upgrade to newer style sensors for 360.00 here in Spring TX. I also purchased the 2 BWD coolant sensors for about 10.00 each at Advance. Use the internet for ordering and get nice discounts along with in storre pickup.

          Does not fit my 2001 sport trac !!!

          Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Thermostat Housing and Outlet:

          This looks like a great upgrade from the factory parts until you go to install it. I have a 2001 ford sport trac with the 4.0 V6. The upper housing that the radiator hose attaches to has a higher angle than the ford one. So when you get everything together and go for that last hose, you will see that it sits too high and rubs against the bottom of the throttle housing. No way will the radiator hose slip past it. So I ended up going to Ford and buying the upper housing for 14.95 and modifying it to fit my Dorman parts. Do yourself a favor and go ahead and get the original parts from Ford. It costs a little more but at least you'll know it fits. I learned my lesson the hard way.
