FORD 4.6 , 5.4 , 6.8, HEATER HOSE UNDER INTAKE REPLACEMENT THE EASY WAY !!!




What do you think about this video?

Nick Shaffer: i fixed this on my tritan, but now there is a spraying leak behind the engine. could it b the line connected to the block under the heater hose

key real: Any negative comments? Tell them to go to hell!!!! This man here is the crap with no toilet paper just the crap!!!! I've been trying to find away to do this without removing the intake for weeks and this is the first thing that actually works!!!!!!!! It works it works it works

Maurice Shannon: I have 2004 Grand marquis that is leaking coolant from back of the intake manifold and dripping between the oil pan and exhaust manifold. Can anybody tell me if that's that heater hose at this point? car is not running hot just leaking!

Charles Wolf: How do you run the hose if you have the original intake? There isn't a "hole" in the intake to run the hose through

chris cann: Had the same problem w/ 2000 Expedition XLT. I did not have as much room under the intake, there was some sort of insulation barrier under it. I used a heater hose w/ a preformed 90 elbow (Gates 28467), worked great. There was also an additional 1/4 inch hose from the old metal pipe to the front crossover. I tapped the 1/4 inch hose into the new 5/8 inch heater hose. Worked great.

ryan olsen: Hell yeah good idea..i was wonder why they put those that way,could not figure out wjere coolant was going till I did a pressure check and a pin hole in that hose.you saved me a lot of work,I owe ya a beer!\../rock on

Mark King: The hardest part was seeing you attach the lower part could have spent more time on that instead of degrading a friend

Mark King: If you were my friend i sure as hell would never bring you one of my cars to fix you talk some crap to be a friend

stephen gaertner: Good video : + . My only - comment is that I do not ever recommend using those cheap black plastic elbows / 90 degree pieces.They break very easily. But they are good for a quick temporary fix though. Use a copper elbow / pieces from a home improvement store for permanent fix instead. BTW, I did the same heater hose bypass hose technique on my Expedition ~5 years ago but I changed the intake manifold too (not knowing the leak was most likely from the crappy metal pipe under the intake manifold. The black plastic elbow / heater hose connectors are the only parts that failed later on. Ford should have "CAR RECALL" on this "OEM manifold cheap metal pipe engineering fail..."

William Nelson: just curious; does this method apply to 2002 model 5.4 ltr. in the Expedition?

Mike Vanbourgondien: what did you do with the metal pipe? I'm working on doing this but won't coolant leak out the metal pipe thats open underneath?

Jose Iturbide: will this work on a 2004 lincoln navigator ??

Glenn Normand: Thank you for giving me the courage to take this to my mechanic and say "DO THIS" instead of removing the intake manifold. However, I have the E150 van with total access to the back of the engine. My mechanic pulled the old bypass tube out, and ran the new heater hose under the intake and accomplished the same thing and I doesn't even show. THANK you!!

Larry Dalrymple: Good Fix  I did it to my 2000 f150 and works great. Mine had a metal pipe that I cut and then removed the pipe on the water pump end and installed the parts as shown. Thank You for this video.

Ned Holcomb: Just did this to my '96 towncar and it worked out fine, thanks!

Michael Cross: do you have any suggestions on how.to cut the line if it's a metal pipe ? because I really don't want to take the intake off

huckstered: So, Mr. Towrecker,
In other words, you are stating that there is no quick fix for the situation I am in? Is this the case? I could see only one hose exiting from the back of the water pump.
The intake manifold must be pulled? I guess so.
Thankyou,
Huckster

huckstered: tried this method on a 2002 grand marquis and coolant flowed out the back of the bypassed riser on the back of the manifold! It did not work, any idea what happened?
Thanks.

Diane Adams: I have a 2002 Navigator that has a leak at the back of the engine passenger side. I thought it was the heater core so I have bypassed the core but there is still a leak, but not as bad. I can't get to the back of the engine (fire wall sits back further ).What would I attach the host to if I have nothing going to the heater core.

Joe Cline: great job!I was laughing when i seen how ya did it!cheap and effective!5 stars!now how about replacing my intake.....

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
