Hi have noticed coolant level dropping in car for a few day. Traced leak to the thermostat but even after replacing thermostat and seal is still dripping around the area . Wondering has anybody else had a problem with a leak around this area and could it be the housing itself is at fault?

have you replaced the seal?

could be the housing is warped and needs replacing

If its a plastic housing, its the most likely cause of the leak. I thought the stat would have been part of the housing like most of the other Fords.

Thanks for the reply.Rang parts today €129 plus vat for the housing parts, expensive for a plastic housing?

Try ford parts uk - google that and you can get them to quote you (usually a bit cheaper than the dealer)
