I would put the car on car ramps and put a brick or something behind the back wheels for security and then you will need an screwdriver or a socket to remove the clamp and normal you use the same one on the top normal socket size is 5/16 or 1/4.

Car runs very rough at stops, dies at times but restarts, higher speeds runs great ,smooth. At idle sounds like vaccum leak inside throttlebody also slight manifolds to eng. head air leak, engine shakes...


There is a TSB for the PCV hose. The elbows at both ends get holes in the underside that you can't see unless you remove them and look. This is a very, very common issue on the ZX2. You can get a new PCV hose with both elbows for about $30 from the Ford dealership. You only need to remove the air intake to gain access to the PCV hose to replace it.

How do you change the thermastat on the 2005 ford explorer sport trac


  1. 1 Drain the coolant from your Explorer into an adequate container by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator. Save the coolant for reuse if it is relatively new and clean.
  2. 2 Remove the negative battery cable from the battery if your Explorer has a 2.9-, 3.0-, 4.0- or 5.0-liter engine. This step is not necessary for 2.3- and 2.5-liter engines.
  3. 3 Follow the upper radiator hose to the front driver's side of the intake manifold, where it meets the engine. This is where the thermostat housing on your Ford Explorer is located. If necessary, remove the air cleaner duct for easy access to the housing.
  4. 4 Loosen the clip on the end of the radiator hose and pull the hose off the thermostat housing. Use a 10mm wrench or socket to remove the two retaining bolts on the thermostat housing cover. Remove the cover.
  5. 5 Note the position of the thermostat before removal. Pull out the old thermostat. Seat the new thermostat inside the housing in the same position as the old one, spring-side facing into the engine. Install new gasket over the thermostat.
  6. 6 Reattach the thermostat housing cover and the radiator hose. Reinstall the air cleaner duct if removed earlier. Fill the radiator with reserve or new coolant. Start your Explorer and run with the heater blowing until the engine gets warm. Check for leaks.

Lower radiator hose


after looking over the situation, and seeing what a horrible mess Ford made of the location of the lower hose connection location, i decided that the lower hose did not need replacement.
just my amateur thoughts on this, but if an item like a radiator hose needs to be replaced on a fairly regular basis then the design engineers need to keep this in mind when designing the engine in the first place. putting the clamped end of the hose in a position where it's not accessible is not just stupid. i've enjoyed having this car, for the most part, since the day it was purchased. changing the oil, and other maintenance items, is relatively straight forward. the lower hose has completely irritated me. there is no excuse for design professionals (and i use that term loosely!) to make such an obvious mistake. anyone who has ever worked on their own car would not have let this engine leave the shop on ANY car, let alone a car that was purchased by people on a budget who wouldn't want to spend gobs of money on paying a mechanic to change a stupid radiator hose.
my 2 cents.
thanks for offering to help.

1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Water Pump Housing removal


I am sure the leak is the water pump based on years of Escort work, The ZX2 is equipped with a 2.0L DOHC V-Tech engine. The water pump is on the front (rt side of car) of the engine block, visible with the hood up. NAPA autoparts replacement instructions are to loosen the belt drive pulley from the pump BEFORE removing the serpentine belt. Once the four bolts are loose, take the belt off (good time to replace?) remove bolts and old water pump (four more bolts)- it will be tight, but it comes out- clean gasket area and install new gasket and pump in reverse order. That includes putting the pulley on and hand tightening the bolts, put on the belt, finish tightening the bolts to the pulley.
