Question about 1999 Lincoln Town Car
Do you have to remove intake to fix
Posted by Anonymous on
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.
see clamp on hose?
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

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.

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.

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.

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
