You'll have to drain system down when cooled off, remove any brackets in your way such as power steering reservoir holding bracket, then remove 2 bolts holding the housing, and remove it. Rad hose should be o.k. to leave on, but if it creates a problem, remove it as well. I'd install a new thermostat and "o" ring complete,then a new gasket as well. Clean all surfaces well before re-installing. Replace any bracket(s) you removed to access housing, after housing is installed. Remember, air valve on edge of thermostat goes in 3 oclock position when re-installed. Also a reminder as well, spring on thermostat goes down when re-installed. After all is re-assembled, re-fill coolant and start engine and run with heater on to bleed out all air. Leave rad cap off and pay attention to temperature gauge and when you see it getting to normal operating temperature, watch flow in rad for increased flow, indicating thermostat opened and coolant is circulating properly. Wait until you see that flow increase 2 or 3 times, and air should be out of system, and top up coolant in rad, put cap back on, and check that return bottle is at proper level as well. Keep an eye for any leaks, and re-check return bottle periodically for first little while, just to be sure all is good. Note: some only use the "O" ring as a seal, and no gasket is required, but just check that at autoparts place where you get part.

SOURCE: Leaking fuel rail

Recheck the o-ring on that injector, the one up at the fuel rail to make sure it didn't get damaged.
Try and seat the injector into the fuel rail first, then push it gently into the manifold, ( that is if you haven't already did that).

How do I change out a leaking fuel rail of Ford F150, 5.0 engine

You do not say what year the truck is.. but the ford 5.0-v8 fuel rails very rarly leak.. This is the part that supplies fuel to the injectors. There are rubber o rings that attach the fuel rail to the injectors sometimes these leak.. you can get a O ring seal kit from at a very reasonable price. The fuel rail can come from the salvage yard.. I have never seen a Ford fuel rail leak except for the O rings. which rarly go bad. If you remove the rail replace all the o rings. use a little lub on the rings to help reassemble. Before you start take pictures of everything in the area you are going to work on. Buy or borrow a Clymer manual for your truck before you start. Good luck.. follow up with a comment and let us know what you find.

Engine light on. Scanner shows code P0172. What is the problem?

Overly rich fuel ratio, this is usually an issue with a leaking injector or unusually high fuel pressure which can be caused by a damaged fuel regulator.

I have a Ford E450 2001 V10 engine That cranks but will not start. I tried ether in the air intake with no change. How would I locate my fuel pump to check if that is operating?

Fuel pump is either inside the frame drivers side or in the tank

I would also suspect the crank sensor. If it won't run with Go Fast Juice it should be an electrical issue Your not getting spark to the plugs

Pull a plug connect the plug wire holding the plug with a pair of insulated pliers ground the metal part of the plug to the engine - crank it over - Do you have fire?
