I ended up just using RTV and sealing the thermostat into the housing and then sealing the housing to the block with RTV as well. It leaked when I got it back together and when I took it apart I accidentally tore the gasket. I wont be using gaskets again anytime soon. RTV all the way.
Replacing Thermostat Housing in 02 Ford Explorer V6 4.0L (upper and lower housing)
In this video I am showing the procedure I used to replace the entire lower and upper housing unit.
Ford repair dept estimated 450.00 charge. I was able to do this for about 145.00.
It was 98.00 for the complete lower and upper unit including the thermostat. The temperature sensor was also replaced but not shown in the video for about $15.00. It required about 2.5 gallons of antifreeze to refill the system at a charge of $30.00.
Total repair costs = $145.00 and about 45min - 1hr labor.
Hope this helps, just check for leaks and allow the system to work the air out of the lines.
@ 5:26 I used the term washer.....I am referring to the rubber seal or gasket. Sorry for using the incorrect term :( No washers are used, only rubber gaskets or o-rings.

How To Bleed A Cooling System - EricTheCarGuy
How To Bleed A Cooling System - EricTheCarGuy
Kind of a request, I've described this procedure a few times in print but never made a video. As I said in the video if your having issues with a fluctuating idle, no heat, or an overheat problem you may want to start here. Also, if you have just serviced the cooling system in any way this is the procedure I recommend to fill it back up. The only regret I have with this one is the end where I didn't shoot footage of closing up the radiator using the tool that I used in the video, I may show it at some point in the future.
