95 Lincoln town car coolant leak under intake SOLUTION EASY

Ok this is a 4" piece of hose leaking on a tube that runs under the intake manifold and fastens to the rear of the engine with 2 small bolts that are very hard to get to. The heater core hooks up to this tube with a 5/8 hose that's 3/4 on the other end going into the heatrer core.
remove alternator
see clamp on hose?
remove it.
If you can't remove it, clamp vice grips on it and take a steak knife and cut through the hose towards the rear of the engine. Now with large screw driver pry the hose and clamp off the nub on the rear of the water pump housing. You may have to move the tube and remaining hose out of the way first. Just stick your hands in there and force it out of the way. Now you have a clean nub to hook a 5/8 bypass hose to. Here's where you get it. Go back to the heater core and and remove the hose that connects to this tube that runs under the intake. Just cut it where it hooks to the tube and remove it carefully from the heater core because this is now your needed bypass hose. Now with a couple feet of 3/4 hose and a coupler you have all you need to reroute this water outlet around the engine to the heater core. Take your hose you cut from the other end of the tube and removed from the heater core and and fasten it to the nub on water pump housing use new screw type stainless Steel clamps. You have to take this one apart to put it on. Stick a 3/4 coupler into the other end and route a long section of 3/4 hose under alternator to the heater core using SS clamps where needed. job done... Just leave the old tube where it is under the intake manifold......Thank you Very Much

SOURCE: 94 town car leaking coolant

you have a leaking water pump... there is a "weep" hole at the bottom of it and when the inner seal goes bad it starts slowly leaking out of it as a warning sign to replace it. It will do that for a few days, or months even, until it starts leaking profusely.

SOURCE: a hose on the top

I know this darn hose, u have to pull the intake to replace it, we used the factory hose but you can use any type of water/coolant rated hose in that size. The intake is not that hard to remove, 30 minutes or so if i remember right from Ford dealer days.

If you have a pipe leaking you need to replace it. Only onei can think of thats close to intake is the In/out to heater matrix.

But if its leaking from waterpump it need a new gasket.

SOURCE: remove and replace metal brake lines on driver's side.

There are two(2) compression fitting nuts on each end.

Find the size open ended wrench that fits EXACTLY and loosen them up, take the old line off, and replace it the exact way in reverse. Tighten the nuts to seal the ends.

Then have someone help you bleed the brake lines to get the air our of them.

I hope this helps you

Thanks for letting ya

Throttle body cleaning

Tbi cleaning alone won't fix it. The entire intake (big black plastic intake manifold) needs to be removed and cleaned. Also clean any soot on the head intake runners. And replace intake gasket. Be sure to remove all sensors from the intake before you clean it. Use rags that won't leave lint behind and intake cleaner.

How to fix code p1193 on a neon 2000

P1193 is an intake air temp code, there is a sensor somewhere within the filter box or the intake tube (large rubber tube running to the intake) with a plug that normally has two wires. You can remove the sensor and clean it (this will sometimes fix the problem) or replace it. You should reset the codes to verify the fix.

99 jimmy coolent leak near trans bell housing

It is probably either an intake manifold gasket or a rear engine freeze plug. If it is a freeze plug, the transmission will have to be removed to fix it and if it is the intake gaskets, the intake manifold will have to be removed. I would recommend using an inspection mirror to look at the back of the manifold to see which it is.

Intake manifold runner stuck open bank 1 how do i cure?

Usually the only way you are going to fix this is to remove the intake and clean the linkage for the intake mainfold runners-sometimes you can 'inhale' a bottle of Sea Foam into a vacuum line while the engine is running and it will loosen the butterflys enough to un-stick it, just do it slowly enough that you do not cause hydrolic lock-let it 'sip' the entire bottle, and thenm shut it down, allowind it to soak into the intake for 15-20 minutes. When you restart the car, it is going to smoke heavily-that is good, it is removing the carbon buildup in the intake, and it won't go away for a good 5-10 minutes. Drive it gently, then agressively to clean it out.and for good measure pour a bottle in the gas tank while it is low on fuel, and drive it for 12-15 miles like that. All of this may or may not fix the problem-like I said earlier, the sure-fire way to fix this is to disassemble the intake to get to the intake runners. You might be able to manually close the plates by pushing on the linkage at the intake manifold runner control solinoid, if you have enough room to get to it.
