a couple of days ago i posted a message concerning a too cold engine of an 95 Escort LX (1.9l) - meanwhile i change the thermostat and found in the thermostat housing a bypass of the thermostat. It seems like there is some kind of valve or whatever in this bypass but you can't get it out (not sure about that). Has anyone an idea how this works, would i have to get a new thermostat housing. It seems to me that there passes too much coolant through.

Sounds like a fail-safe thermostat, which is designed with the bypass valve to prevent your engine from overheating. In the event of thermostat failure, the bypass valve will stick open, allowing coolant flow.

You probably only need to purchase a new thermostat for at most $5.00 and install the new one. This should cure your cold-running problem.
