Ford 4.6L V8 Intake Manifold Replacement
Complete instructions for intake manifold swap on 4.6l Ford V8 engine. It
is easy! I got new Dorman 615-175 to replace stock OEM part. Each step was
relatively easy but there were a lot of steps. Took me 6 hours total for
removal and repair. The Dorman part came with new thermostat and O-ring.
Also had new alternator bracket as old one could not be used. This part is
improved over original OE as has O-rings for all ports so a gasket is not
needed. No more leaking coolant. Fits 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006,
2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 Crown Victoria and other Ford, Lincoln, Mercury
V8 motors such as Mustang,
Explorer, Expedition, Grand Marquis, Town Car. The 5.4l truck and
Expedition should be similar.
Lincoln Town Car Coolant Leak Repair - 4.6 SOHC Composite Intake Manifold
Our 2002 Lincoln Town Car started to overheat on me the other day and I
found out I had a pretty substantial coolant leak. After checking all the
normal stuff, like the radiator, hoses, etc... I thought it might be the
composite intake manifold. The real problem ended up being the tube from
the water pump that goes under the intake to the back of the engine. It
had rusted over time and developed a couple of pin holes. I did manage to
get it all fixed up for now. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for
How to Seafoam your Crown Victoria.
This is applicable for all 4.6L engines with the NON heated PCV valve on
the passenger side.
This is shown on a 2002 Crown Victoria.
I am just against putting this in either the crank case or the gas tank. I
don't like diluting this product in any fashion with either 5.5 qts of oil
or 19 gallons of fuel.
The next day the level in that tub was so close to the same I can't measure

PART 2 of 3 How To Install Replace Lower Intake Manifold Gaskets GM 3.4L V6
If you are losing Coolant but don't know where it is going check to see if
your oil looks lighter brown and foamy if so you are getting coolant or
antifreeze in your oil and this can be one of the causes. This video is
applicable to the Pontiac Grand Am, model years 1999-2005.
GM 3.8 Intake Manifold replacement. Removal the fast way WITH NOTES
this is the "Flat Rate " way to do a 3.8 liter upper and lower intake
manifold set. as you see it is not necessary to take off he serp belt,
alternator or tensioner assembly to remove the lower manifold. I recomend
having someone help when it is time to reinstall the manifold because it
can be tricky to lien up the coolant elbow and not mess up the lower
gaskets when reinstalling. Note that it is recomended to disconnect the
negative battery cable when doing any major repairs. This video is just to
show some guys that said that a lower manifold cant be pulled in way less
than 20 minutes, I know that I went over that , but I had some stuborn
injectors and Im a little out of practice. If you are going to do this
yourself and you are not a professional I recomend that you follow the
procedure in a service manual
How to Seafoam your vehicle (Also called Top Engine Clean)
This is a carbon deposit cleaner that when used can help eliminate the
carbon deposits that build up in the top end of your engine block. I
perform this about every 15,000 miles on my own vehicle.
Steps to seafoaming:
1. Bring your vehicle up to normal operation temperature
2. Separate seafoam canister into 3 equal parts (one will be for sucking
through a pvc line or brakeBooster
line, one for gas tank, and one for putting in the oil filler cap)
3. Locate the PVC valve that runs through the intake manifold, for this is
where you will initially suck 1/3 of the seafoam canister through.
(If PVC is non accessible then you can use your brake Booster line in the same manner.)
4. Once engine is at normal operational temperature, have another person
sit in the drive seat and bring the engine RPM up to around 1500.
5. Pull your PVC off (or brake Booster line) and start slowly sucking 1/3 of
the seafoam in through either of these locations. Be cautious & steady
handed, you don't want to stall the engine out.
6. Once you've sucked all of the 1/3 portion up turn the engine off &
replace pvc or brake Booster to its
7. Once engine is off, unscrew your Oil Filler cap & pour 1/3 of the
seafoam in as if it were oil.
8. Unscrew gas cap and put the remaining 1/3 seafoam in.
9. Leave the car alone for 15 minutes.
10. Come back to the car and start it up, let it idle for about 10-15
seconds and then BRING ENGINE RPMS TO A STEADY 2000-3000RPM for no more
than a couple minutes.
(major revving or fluctuation can knock carbon deposits loose so please
keep a steady foot)
11. Once this is complete, take your car for a 10-15 mile drive, while
doing so make sure to bring the engine through its total rev band spectrum
to make sure all the carbon deposits have been cleaned out.
12. Once the drive is complete, bring the car back home.
13. CHANGE YOUR OIL & FILTER & SPARKPLUGS WITH KNOWN GOOD OEM SPEC PARTS.
(The reasoning behind this is that the seafoam lowers the viscosity of your
oil, thus weakening its ability to control wear on your engines major
mating surfaces and your plugs get buggered up with carbon after this
tuneup due to the carbon coming loose during the tuneup.. So an Oil/Filter
change & Spark Plugs are a must after seafoaming is complete
14. Tune Up is complete!
