    My mechanic said it was a $450.00 job to replace this hose. The intake must be removed and any heater hose can be used. According to the mechanic this is a very poor design by Ford.

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.

Coolant line under intake is leaking 95 town car


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.
Solution:
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

Leaking water from hose under intake and running down back of the motor


sounds like a coolant bypass hose or it could be run off from a bad intake gasket either way you will have to remove the intake to resolve the problem.

Coolant leak in back of engine...hose looks like its coming from


you have a bad line under the intake manifold. There is a line that runs under it that has a bad tendency to leak. Make sure the intake isn't cracked either while you have it off.

If your talking about the heater pipe and hose under the intake....(to ease removal you can remove the inlet air cowl/wipers/etc.) remove upper intake/coils/fuel line etc. the tube is bolted to the back of the RT head...replace the entire tube/hose assemble....IF the tube at the frt of the block is corroded/damaged/etc. you will need to replace that also (remove waterpump for access and installation)...change you T/Stat at this time also....hope this helped you...GL

93 lincoln town car leaking antifreeze down back of engine


there is a small heater hose on the pass side rear from the firewall(heater core) to the intake manifold. the plastic manifolds have a tendency to split where the hose fitting goes into the intake. If that is where it is leaking the manifold needs replacement.
