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.
Ford 4.6L V8 Intake Manifold Cracked or Melted Coolant Inlet Fix
This is a very common problem to Ford vehicles with the 4.6 liter engine. In fact, there was even a class action lawsuit against Ford because of all the failures--but it's too late to get in on it. The manifolds have an integrated coolant passage on the front of them which, on the older version, was all plastic and would melt or crack. On the new version it still cracks because, even though the upgraded Ford part has a mostly aluminum runner, it still mates to the head with plastic. Dorman makes a replacement part 615-175 with a lifetime warranty so if it ever fails you can get another one for free. That's what I decided to install in this video. You can get that here: http://www.amazon.com/Dorman-615-175-Intake-Manifold/dp/B000CIXMIC Actually Dorman makes two versions of this manifold. The 615-175 is for 2001 and up vehicles (not sure what the cut off date is) and the 615-178 is for older 1996-2000 models. The vehicles affected by this failure are (sorry I seem to have lost my list of the various years for each model): Ford Explorer Ford Mustang GT Ford Crown Victoria Mercury Grand Marquis Lincoln Town Car Hope this helps everybody.
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 watching!
