2001 ford ranger thermostat repair
i was told by a person, that the thermostat is located at the bottom hose, is this correct?

Nope,... T-Stats are located in the T-Stat Housing, on the motor end of the Top radiator hose...

Errr, with all due respect "Bondo", there are many T-stats which are located at the block where the bottom radiator hose connects on some of today's vehicles. I don't know about the '01 Ranger, but do know about the '03-'05 T-Blazer with the I-6 engine. You even have to remove the alternator to change the T-stat. David

Here is the link I pulled the picture from. It explains the complete procedure. This is for a 4.0L OHV V6 if that is what you have.
