Question about 2001 Ford Mustang
I have to replace the intake manifold ? or replace just the nipple? because this looks like is separared from the manifold ,,thanks
Most likely it is a separate piece. It could be threaded on or simply a press fit. Unfortunately, that particular piece is hard to find as most auto stores won't keep it. It can also be difficult to change out if it is press fit and may cause more damage if done incorrectly.

It is pressed in. I usually just take the nipple out and run a threader into the hole and place a piece of threaded copper pipe into the newly tapped hole. The factory uses a thin steel tube and they rust out if the cooling system is not properly maintained.
