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 clean a throttle body and Idle air control valve (iac)
*** PLEASE READ ***
In this video demonstration, I show how to get to, remove, clean, and
replace the throttle body and idle air control motor (aka IAC) on a 4.2l
ford motor. This procedure is the same for any fuel injected vehicle.
* * * Check out my website krkvideos.com * * *
The vans require removal of alot more stuff just to access the throttle
A dirty IAC can cause a rough idle. A dirty throttle body can harm
performance and cause rough engine operation.
When the throttle body or iac is removed a new gasket must be used to
properly seal the connection to the intake.
GM idle air motors are generally mounted on the throttle body and can be
cleaned without removal from the throttle body. This means one less gasket
and a lesser chance of creating a vacuum leak.
The ford throttle body had a note on it that said it was not to be cleaned
because the coating on the throttle blade might be damaged. Thats fine for
a new car but that has to be disregarded when working on something that has
some miles on it.

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 Install a PI Intake on a Non-PI 4.6L 2V Ford Engine
BadShoe Productions "How To" video on installing a PI (power improved)
intake on an earlier non-PI 4.6L engine. This popular swap adds performance
and prepares the engine for future installation of PI cylinder heads. I use
my 97 TBird 4.6L 2V however, the details also apply to Mustangs, Crown Vic's, Grand Merc's
and Town Cars. Please email me if you comments or questions about this
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

Ford 4.6L 3v spark plug removal - tips for success to address a misfire issue
Did this after searching everywhere and find nothing but negatives about
doing this. (except for the Mustang guy with the tattoo on his
arm, his video was helpful too)
I had random misfires and after changing the easy part (coil on plugs) it
still happened occasionally. Bucking and skipping like I was on a rough
road. My plugs were original (Dad bought truck new and never had them
done) and it has 104k on the odometer.
I can TOTALLY see how it can be a nightmare, but here is what I did with
100% success on a 2008 Ford Explorer v8 (4.6l 3v) - as a side note, the HTI
plugs at autozone were 11.99 each but they have a rebate where you get $20
back for 4, and they let you buy and rebate twice. Pretty cool to get $40
Take your time and dont rush it, slow and steady, on a warm motor with LOTS
of PB spray worked for me. Crank motor with all plugs out to blow out as
much PB as possible then change the oil when done.
Here is a follow up video with some parts that really made the truck wake
up and scoot!

2002 Ford explorer 4.6L intake manifold swap cause of coolant leak
Intake manifold decided to leak coolant out left front corner and short out
coil pack causing a misfire. Here i show an older gen manifold i had laying

cooling system to check for leaks and make re-fill a breeze!!! Thanks for
World's Worst Intake Manifold Coolant Leak
The Chevrolet/GMC 4.3L & 5.7L CPI Vortec engines had a horrible problem
with the plastic intake manifold gaskets cracking around the coolant
passages. I've replaced many of the gaskets and a few manifolds on various
vehicles. This was the absolute worst lower intake manifold gasket coolant
leak I've seen in a long time. It was a Chevy S10 Blazer with a 4.3L. I
removed the power steering/AC bracket and the EGR valve to get to the leak.
Otherwise it was just water running out under the compressor. I had my
camera with me, so I thought I'd share the video.

An Oxygen sensor can be manually forced down to 0 volts and up to 1 volt.
That is it's full range. So, if it will full range it proves that the
sensor is good. Here is how to do it
