ya didnt know how u guys felt about rtv red or anything. well let the truck warm up and so far no leaking....so either the gasket swelled or when the thermostat opened and well followed the path of least resistance. but i just started it now and its been sitting for idk 4 hours id think the thermo would be closed and it didnt leak. also washed my motor since coolent was all over it, it squealed for ever finally went away just as i pulled up to the house and to be honest the truck sounds smoother and quite......idk if i was already use to the squeal or what. its been nothing but issues this week so im on edge

well if anyone runs into this problem, they discontinued the gasket for the 7.3, but if you ask for it for 1995 ford taurus 3.0 its the same gasket. i still have a pully squealing could it be from the coolent getting into the bearing?

probably belt squeal/chirp

get some liquid soap and spread it on both sides of the belt wher you can reach

let it dry and see if the squeal is gone

I HAVE YOUR ANSWER!


I had the same problem when i replaced mine. kept leaking couldnt get it to seal. VERY FRUSTRATING i know. So i did some digging and if your thermostat is the cheap bought from parts store one throw it right in the garbage. The seal is only sits on top of the thermostat and seals like crap. ford revamped the thermostat where the seal raps around the top to the bottom. Put one is and havent had a leak since.


Motorcraft part number RT1201

Here is a link you can get it at ford or oreilly's auto parts
