The part number at napa for the t stat o ring is: 1087

Ztw: not sure on that...i believe you could be correct....wagon with a ztec?

No, rtv alone i would not recommend....you need a new o ring, but also coat the new o ring with a little (don't goop it on heavy) blue rtv , but let the rtv cure overnight before you put coolant back in the system or run the car....

OK, back again with my update and ?'s.

So, got t-stat O-ring. was going to change, but am going to hold because....

Got car in the air, and thought I'd look over the underside before I drained coolant. Noticed coolant drip on A/C compressor. YAY!!

So, I know I'm gonna have fun now. No water out of weep hole, just wet around water pump housing. Which brings up the question, about how long should it take to change the pump, and timing belt? Sitting on a solid 141,xxx unmolested 01 zetec. Will do t-stat o-ring then, too. Standard DIY with hand tools, and a few pnuematic low power stuff. PITA, no dought.

Thanks, again.
