If you remove the engine mount then you must put a jack under the engine in safe area not to damage sump etc , to get old core plug out carefully drill a hole off centre of it and prise it out , clean and check hole surface , if ok then put sicaflex type glue on new core plug and hit home to same depth the old one came out !

SOURCE: So I have the 1995

To remove the left motor mount place a jack under engine just as you done it before, unbolt the mount assembly from the frame, remove the engine mount through bolts attaching the rubber insulator to the frame brackets, jack up the motor and remove the rubber insulator, then remove the engine mount brackets from frame and engine To install back, attach the engine mount frame brackets to the mounts. Tighten the nuts just enough to hold them securely, Lower the engine slowly onto the supports. Tighten the engine support nuts to 74 ft. lbs. (100 Nm). Tighten the bracket bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

Good Luck! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Do I have to remove A/C parts to get at glow plugs

Yes you can remove the valve cover without touching the a/c. It's a tight fit but it can be done. Good luck.

08 f250 diesel 4wd heater works for a while then starts blowing cold air?

your problem seems to be associated with the temperature control section of your H.V.A.C.(heater ventilation & air condition) system. most likely the electrical motor temperature control actuator. it is located on the right side (passenger), next to the glove compartment, on the upper side. it is hard to see and even alot harder to replace

I need to replace my fuel pump on my 04 Ford F250 6.0L Powerstroke Diesel.

There are 2 different versions of fuel pumps on these trucks. There is a frame mounted one just under drivers side up in framerail right behind the engine. If it is not there then it is in tank and you will need to drop your tank. 2 straps hold it in. Make sure you know how much fuel is in and and that you are aware that it m ay be heavy. Once out remove the twist ring holding it on by twisting it counterclockwise. it will pop off. You may need to tap it with a hammer and a screw driver. Once removed reach down inside. There are 2 clips holding it into a plastic housing. go to the bottom side of the clips and pull up carefully. too much and you can break them. You will feel it pop loose. then you can remove the pump and back together you go.

Water leaking out from freeze plug

First you must remove the old one either by catching part of it with a vice grip or driving it in part way or drilling and pulling it out with an easy out.  Obtain new free plug and the proper side diameter socket or driver and drive noew plug into the block. I would use a gasket sealer on the new plug.

Freeze Plug Leak on my 1996 GMC Jimmy

i would hardly call this repair simple or inexpensive. the part itself yes the labor probably not. i have made this repair myself to my 97 jimmy if you have 4 wheel drive the transfer case up front makes this repair next to impossible from the underside of the car plus the fact that it is behind the motor mount means the the mount must be removed. this involves raising or removing the motor. simple? on a car of this age you will probably find (as i did) the motor mounts are damaged might as well replace them too the parts are fairly inexpensive. also look into replacing all the plugs so you dont have to do this again in a few years. oh yea use the proper antifreeze mix in your radiator water is what rusts out the plugs
