Question about 2000 Ford Expedition
After replacing the intake manifold on our Ford Expedition, it won't start. It was running before we replaced this (replaced due to leak of antifreeze). Now, it's turning over, but will not start. Checked all wires and cables. What's wrong?
An engine needs three things to run air, fuel, spark. So check to make sure air supply is adequate. Check fuel supply. Check to see that all air has been bled from the injector rails. Check wiring again . Make sure ground strap is reattached from firewall to engine. Pull off a plug wire and check for spark. If distributor was removed make sure it was reinstalled correctly and it is not 180 degrees off. Recheck all plug together connectors. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I need to drain the
Not 100% sure but if you look up under exhaust manifold area, on block,is usually a common place. Simple hex head plug into block on most. Are you sure just pulling lower rad hose, and thermostat housing off won't get you where you need to be?

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.

Check the lower intake gasket again the new gaskets that are being use made out of plastic with rubber port seals sometimes don't seal right I still used gasket sealer with the new plastic gasket even if it has rubber seals. MY 4.2 v6 had that problem but I went ahead and replaced the head gaskets also just to cover all the bases. And my F-150 has 210,000 miles on it. Make sure you tight the bolts I know it probably calls for something like 8 ft lbs which to me is not tight enough. Double it.

Sorry im late with this,i couldnt seem to log on....The answer to your question is YES,there is a steel line under the intake with a short piece of rubber line attached to it and you can just about see it from the front of the intake with a light,it can leak and cause coolant to run off the back of the engine,The intake gasket set alone is about $40.00 and i dont know about the rubber line,i have seen it physically but havent changed one yet.Note the date of manufactor just incase,i bought an intake set for a 99 and the engine design was changed half way through...its not too hard to pull off the intake and re-install,you will need a 7mm socket for the coil packs,8mm socket for the fuel rail bolts and lower intake bolts and power steering bracket bolts and throttle bracket bolts,10mm socket for the intake bolts and alternator bolts and egr valve,and a large cresant wrench for the exhaust tube thats connected to the egr valve,flat screw driver for the air cleaner...and plenty of extensions with a swivel to be able to get to the back bolts of the intake....just incase you do it yourself this info could make it easier to gather tools.Its about a 3 1\2 to 4 hour job start to finish for the first time doing it,includes cleaning everything..Good luck
