Ok so my 2002 Ranger 4.0L thermostat housing leaked so I went to Ford and bought a new one. Put it in and put the old sensors back in only to find out that they leak really bad. I put sealer on them but it still leaked.
Went to Ford and they told me that the thermostat housing was updated to a new part and the part numbers were changed so the old sensors wouldn't fit. (They are very loose).
So I went back to Ford and told them that they had one of the sensors in stock, they brought it out and showed it to me. It has threads on it (the thermostat housing doesn't have a threaded part). I don't believe it will fit and they talked me out of buying it.
Has anyone encountered this problem with the thermostat housing or sensors? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
