kimberlee lunsford: LMAO this guy sounds like will ferrel
James Sims: Thank you, mine just went tonight & I really didn't feel like pulling the
I think I will use a brass 90* but we will see.
Cornelius Perkins: Will it make my car over heat
Harold Brown: Thanks man awesome work
Carlos Redden: How muvh is the parts
John Barrett: Thank You for taking the time to post this video for us. Great video.
Cornelius Perkins: Will this work on the left side of the motor I have a 02 towncar that the
nipple broke the intake how can I fix that
chromehiker76: This worked great!! I had to go under the right side of the alternator but
otherwise it was spot on. Someone buy this guy a beer or two! Cost about
towrecker: there is no reason why it will not work , unless the car / truck is not as
ford built it ...
northstar2007: been 3 days late for the last week :p
flagsway: good one
JasonWW2000: As a side note, I couldn't find a brass barbed 90* elbow in 5/8, but I did
find one in 3/4 at Home Depot. It was a SharkBite product and fit into the
5/8 heater hose nice and snug, no problem.
JasonWW2000: I just finished bypassing the tube and now I'm leak free. :) I never was
able to see the leak, even with the alt off, it was too far in the back of
the engine. I need to relocate my climate control temp sensor, but that can
wait till winter. Thanks for the video, it was the only one I could find,
so big thumbs up brother.
BudsBitch: I have another name for those squeeze clamps that you were talking about
that is a pain in the butt me and friends call them god damnit clamps here
in Oregon lol
Tressia Ayers: I am trying to reroute heater hose. Can't get to the hose on the back of
the water pump. There is a tank under the intake that is in the way. How
can I get to the hose that is under the tank?
towrecker: also you may have to , after you get the rubber part out , use a pry bar ,
and bend the metal tube to one side or the other a bit to clear and not rub
the new hose or 90 degree fitting ...
yrly59e: I've been using what I think is a slightly better way to do this. Get two
90 degree brass bends, make U shaped thing and clamp this onto the water
pump outlet connecting the long end around the front instead of right next
to the coolant crossover so its not run up against the hot part like here.
If you do it that way it avoids physical contact with mostly everything
except the spark plug wire bracket and still doesn't crimp the hose. It
also is easier to get on the water pump nipple.
Nailgunskater: Clarification on other message: I believe that metal coolant line that runs
under the manifold has a 90 degree bend that goes up to a fitting for the
right heater hose and that its leaking at the 90 degree bend. Its also
possible that the leak is from somewhere else and just appears to leak
there. I figure it might be worth the risk to cut the line and rerun it
like you did. Any thoughts?
beltstowing: YUP , AND THANKS
towrecker: it is an aggravating job , but not a really hard one ;)
beltstowing: bend over you 4,000 lb bitch !
Nailgunskater: On my 99 Crown Vic, that hose behind the water pump looks like its metal.
And it appears to be leaking at the back of the engine at the elbo. It's
tough to see and its just not reachable, maybe if I take some stuff off? If
I'm right and that's the source of the leak, could I cut the pipe behind
the water pump and do your repair? And to make it better, I don't even use
the heater core, so I could connect it directly back into the intake. I
hope I'm right and that's the hose that's leaking.
carlos dubois: what is the name of the coolant pipe on the left side of the back of the
motor commonlt know to leak that connects to the heater core. looking for a
video on replacing that one.. Thank you nice video
beltstowing: hell buy one !!
BudsBitch: I have a friend that want me to fix that hose. I am going fix it the way u
did it. Thanks for putting a video on YouTube it will help me out a lot
beltstowing: the hell !
kerobinsonii: I would go fix it but I don't have a Ford! LOL!
beltstowing: typical LMAO
towrecker: whats so funny is that I have done several of these cars like this , but
never did a vid because I felt it was a rig , until a friend that actually
works at the ford dealer seen it , and said , "you mean to tell me you
don't have to take that f%cking intake off !!!)" then I thought , yeah ,
lets put it out there lol
beltstowing: see there are a few easy not so factory ways that work ok , like I said a
FEW LMAO !!
towrecker: this is that pipe , it runs to the front of the engine under the intake
manifold , you have 2 choices , this way , or pill the intake manifold ,
and buy the pipe for $150 from the dealer ...
travis bluecollar: thanks
Matt Newman: awesome...I might need to replace it. Thanks man!
Nailgunskater: I think my heater core fittings are 3/4 but I'm not going to use them
anyway. The core leaks and I'm just going from the water pump back into the
intake. So maybe I need a reducer (5/8 to 3/4) for that.
beltstowing: that BASTARD !!!!
northstar2007: This video rated R for Crude references including power lube and
beltstowing: lmao , at least you ain't calling me damn honky like my buddy TA does lol ,
I'm glad you got it fixed , it's seems odd till you actually get in there
and see how it fits in , and actually fits like it is supposed to be there
towrecker: it stays slick , it will cause the hose to push off under pressure , gates
made the mistake of using a silicon shine on there hoses in the 90's to
make them pretty , there were several pissed off people because of that one
, as they blew off unless you tightened them tight enough to deform a rad
RamblinAround: That is genius...thanks for passing this idea along.
redneck2010ize: was here
towrecker: some are 5/8 , some are 3/4 depends on year , and weather it's a car ,
truck , or van , you just have to look really ...
beltstowing: well true lol , the right way is moving down the road in a hurry in this
VicGord: was here lol
travis bluecollar: that's like the ford taurus power steering hose the new one that they have
goes around the motor instead of behind it. alot easier learn something new
Nailgunskater: It's funny that I do some plumbing and general construction work. I make
things work which sometimes includes creative plumbing, or "rigging", ever
which way you view it. Things are so much just a matter of perspective. I
need to apply more of what I know towards automotive repair!!! And
sometimes I do!
darkwriter77 .: Great vid! I've got a '93 Crown Vic that has this same leak. Wish that I'd
watched this before I ordered $70 worth of gaskets in anticipation of
having to take the intake manifold off just to get at that stupid little
hose. Oh well ... valve cover gaskets are leaking anyway, so I'll still
need 'em later. :-)
y2kxj: just because they made it that way.. it doesn't mean that it the right way
JasonWW2000: I little tip. I did the bypass like shown but it still leaked under the
intake somewhere. After investigating more, nothing looked corroded. It
seems the factory plastic fitting that slides onto the metal nipple under
the alternator had rubbed a hole right through the metal. It was on the
bottom, which is hard to see. I had to use a small mirror and flashlight to
see it. The fix was simply sliding the new hose section and clamp closer to
the front, clamping over the hole. I hope that helps so
