Like everybody else the cooling system remains a problem on my 1999 Taurus, had a minor coolant leak, when I removed the heater hose the metal tube that comes out of the fitting came with it, completely rusted. The fitting has two sensors in it, they were easy to remove, but the fitting itself does not seem to be screwed in. I can turn it with effort, but it does not seem to be unscrewing. Sadly I don't have a picture but will try to get one. As noted it's behind the thermostat housing.
The second picture shows where the fitting is attached to the engine, difficult to turn despite penetrating oil it does not seem to be screwing out, but I could be wrong. Not shown is where the two sensors screw into the fitting.
