I have read a few complaints about the plastic intake manifolds leaking. There may also be a heater hose on the rear of the engine leaking. You may be able to tighten the bolts starting from the middle and across then equally front and back. I do not have torque specs. but you may not have a torque wrench. You may get away with just tightening the bolts and not having to disassemble anything.

Where is the water pump on a 2001 Windstar??


Well, it's not the water pump. That's on the other side. Your looking at the upper radiator hose, t-stat housing, the hose for the heater core, plus fittings, and the intake manifold gasket.

2001 ford escape 3.0 engine no power in cylinders 4,5,and 6


wonder if it brings a check engine light on? check your coil packs spark plugs/wires - could be a bad injector - could be a vacuum leak - could be an intake leak causing anifreeze to be introduced into the combustion chamber - same with the head gasket could be blown causing the same effect as an intake gasket most of the time if you check your spark plug they will tell you everything like oil on them would be black and oily if its been introduced to water/anifreeze could show signs

My 1996 ford explorer was running fine today. I came home and parked and then returned to find a puddle of coolant. I filled the radiator with water and the reserve with water. I ran the engine for...


make sure the engine is fully warmed up (check the temp gauge and feel the top hose from the radiator to the engine) that hose should be HOT and it you should NOT be able to calopse it-it should feel hard. If you do not have a leak under these conditions, you probably just have an overfull surge tank and it 'puked' out some fluid. If you top radiator hose is NOT hard after the engine is fully warmed up, you have something wrong-it could be as simple as a radiator cap that is not sealing properly, or a leaky hose, an intake manifold leak, or an internal leak in the engine (don't rule out a leaking radiator, it has end tanks that can and do leak).

My ford windstar is leaking antifreeze fast, what could be the problem? and can i fix it


If the antifreeze is leaking fast, then the most probable cause can be a hole or split in one of the coolant hoses. It is also possible for the radiator or water pump to have a leak. If you cannot see the leak when you inspect under the hood, then you may have to take the vehicle to your service repair shop where they can lift the van on a hoist to inspect underneath and they can pressurize the system to locate the coolant leak..

The piece you are describing sounds like the thermostat housing. These housings are normally bolted to the manifold, so you can simply unbolt it. If it is cracked, you will need to replace it. If it is not, you can replace the gasket underneath it and reinstall it.

My 2001 ford F150 is leaking water from above the trans


First off, is this water or antifreeze? If it's water it could be coming from the heat/air conditioning. If it's antifreeze, it's probably either a heater hose or the back of the intake manifold.
