This is going to be a pain, due to the age and rust. I assume when you say upper exhaust gasket. You are referring to the manifold to head gasket. If so you need to soak the stud/nuts with PB Blaster lube then back out the nuts, to remove the manifold. For the lower gaskets I assume you are referring to the donut gaskets where the pipes meet, I am pretty sure this model does not use donut gaskets.

SOURCE: upper & lower Ford Ranger ball joints replacement

Approx.$250 in parts & rest is labor. Probably 3 to 4 hrs labor at most, even at 5 hrs labor, that's $100/hr labor. It must include alignment after the repairs, correct? Not sure what your going rate for labor is in your area. Probably wouldn't hurt to call around for a second opinion& estimate just to be sure.

dont take soo much in consideration after you have make all this things, some time is on only for any wire faulty, or a shrt electrical arc in any place in wire system. ask auto tap mechsnics for this maybe they have similar case before.

SOURCE: my 2003 ford taurus has oil pan gasket leak just

All you have to do is get under the car with a 1/2" drive ratchet, 3" extension, an extension swivel, and the socket for the bolts on the oil pan. Go through all the bolts and tighten them all up. You will be surprised at how loose some of them are.

SOURCE: Replacement Front Suspension, Lower Ball Joint

The easiest way is too remove the whole knuckle and remove the joint on a bench. The Ball Joint is in the knuckle, not in the lower control arm. Try to not break pinch bolt on lower strut clamp. Hope this helps.. :-) Cobra

What all do I need to change or do to fix a blown head gasket?


This is a big job. First removing the upper intake and possible the airbox. then the fuel rail and injector connectors needs to be removed or disconnected then remove the lower intake. Possible having to remove the valve covers first.exhaust manifold(s) will have to be removed. Then you can remove the heads. There will be many electrical connectors that will have to be disconnected. Inspect the heads for cracks around the valves is where they usually crack. Inspect all valves for damage or uneven wear. ALWAYS follow torque specs and sequence when installing the heads. A manual will be verys helpful with this job. The alternator,P/S pump may also have to be removed or moved out of the way. Cleaning is very important. Generaly the parts you will need are.

Upper and lower intake gaskets
Head gasket
Head bolts
Valve cover gaskets
Injector O-rings
Exhaust manifold gaskets

Hopefully this kinda helps.

What gaskets do I need besides my head gasket when replacing the head gasket on a 2004 Ford Taurus, in otherwords what would replace while doing this job car has 168000 kms


Head bolts and head gaskets. Let's see, you will need a lower and upper intake set as well. These head gaskets usually blew because bad fan relays caused the gaskets to blow and warped the heads. Ford used cheap oil pressure switches that leaked as well.

Location of thermostat


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Container
  • Jack and jack stands or wheel ramps (if needed)
  • Screwdriver
  • 13mm socket or wrench
  • Thermostat and gasket
  1. 1

    Turn the drain valve at the bottom of the radiator counterclockwise to drain the coolant from your Ford Taurus into a suitable container. Depending on the size of the container, it may be necessary to lift the front end of your Taurus with a jack and lower it onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps.

  2. 2

    Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it meets the thermostat housing at the front of the intake manifold. Loosen the hose clamp and pull the radiator hose off the water connection on the thermostat housing.

  3. 3

    Take out the two bolts on the thermostat housing cover with a 13mm socket or wrench and remove the cover. Clean any old gasket residue from the inside of the thermostat housing cover. Pull out the old thermostat.

  4. 4

    Insert the new thermostat into the thermostat housing with the spring-side facing into the engine. Install the new thermostat gasket. Use a spray adhesive to hold the gasket in place, if desired.

  5. 5

    Reinstall the thermostat housing cover. Tighten the bolts to 89-124 in. lbs. Reattach the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing. Make sure the drain valve on the radiator is closed.

  6. 6

    Fill the radiator with new or reserve coolant. Start your Ford Taurus and allow it to warm up to its normal operating temperature. Check hoses and connections for leaks and tighten hose clamps to stop any leaks, if necessary. Add more coolant as needed.

I replaced the thermostat on my 1996 Ford Taurus Duratec DOHC 6cyl and now have a leak in the housing unit. As taken apart (I don't believe I have this messed up), I put in the gasket, then the thermostat...


You might try alldata.com, but you'll have to pay for it and it's based on the Chilton's manual. So, that may not help you.

Have you thought of using silicon gasket maker on the metal to metal part?

WHERE TO LOOK FOR EXHAUST LEAK


There are several areas to check for possible exhaust leaks. i will list them below.

1. Exhaust manifold gaskets - This will be the most common area. There is a gasket that separates the block from the exhaust manifold. these gaskets can fail, thus, causing a exhaust leak at the manifold.

2. Lower manifold gasket(donut gasket) - This will be a possible leak spot as well. This small circular gasket is placed in between the upper exhaust pie and the lower side of the manifold. It basically separates the pipe from the exhaust manifold.

3. Exhaust pipe - The entire pipe can rust overtime, thus, creating small holes along the pipe structure. These holes will cause the exhaust to leak ,thus, filling the vehicle will moderate fumes and causing louder than normal engine sounds during revving.

4. Muffler - This component can also deteriorate to the point that it cannot filter out the noise. It will also cause leaks as well.

You will find the leak in one or all of the areas stated above in the list.

1999 S10 blazer 4.3. need to replace lower intake gaskets. went and bought the kit and the kit has upper and lower intake gaskets with it. do i need to replace them all?? the kit also came with gasket...


If your going to replace the lower intake and the set came with the upper why not replace it, your removing it any way.the silicone you need to used it at the 4 corners where the heads meet the engine block or you will have leaks.

CODES P0171 & P0174 EMISSION SYSTEM SERVICE


if you have the 3.8 liter its more than likely bad intake manifold gaskets or a cracked manifold. Ford has had several TSBs on this issue. O2 sensors do not go bad as often as mechanics say they do. I have a 1999 that after 100 dollars at the parts store solved all lean conditions on the top end. The manifold has three parts to it. A lower aluminum that houses the butterfly blades for the variable intake runners( known vacuum leak were rods protrude at passenger side of lower bad bushings likely cause). Middle riser which uses oring seals which dry out and cause major vacuum leaks. upper is more or less the top cover which uses one large oring to seal. Hope this helps!
