You have to remove the tensioner assembly, not just the tensioner pulley, but the whole assembly, in order to access the plastic bypass hose.
Be very careful, as these pipes get old, the plastic becomes brittle, and possibly the flange end will break off and remain in the block when you remove the pipe, check the block opening carefully to remove all of the remaining flange.
Also, be very careful when removing the lover pipe nipple into the engine block, if you try to pry the tensioner assembly off the block, you will probably snap off the machined nipple that locates into the block, Ask me how I know!!! Good Luck, it can be done but you need to move carefully and deliberately. (by the way, a rebuilt tensioner assembly costs about $80 US, the pipe is about $6. New tensioner assembly comes with the pipe)

You are right.Its the key code problem.
As per the manual it says:--- sometimes when the battery is disconnected or has to be recharged - this happens. The computer forgets the key code and the key has to be re-coded. The ford service center/dealer charge $35 to $50 for recoding the key and this makes the car to function properly and it starts .
Also check the code in your car:--- under the plastic-passenger side under the very back window-next to rear passenger door jam-Looks like a black box. The Original Code is on a tag on that box.But if its not there then dealer is other option/.It takes few minutes to get recoded.----------------This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

You mean that the starter is turning (cranks) the engine but the engine won't start? Be sure it is getting fuel. Turn the key to the on position and you should hear the fuel pump in the fuel tank run for a few seconds. If so that is good. If the fuel is being delivered then possibly you have no spark which usually is the electronic ignition module. The only way to test it is to replace it. Your timing chain or belt could be broken or "jumped" as the third possibility. I am leaning toward ignition module being bad as they just die without warning and nothing can revive them.

About the programing procedure, read this info... Programming a PATS II Key
Ordered a PATS II key ( Passive Anti Theft System ) from Torrie McPhail at Ford Parts Network ( http://www.fordpartsnetwork.com/ ). The key, cut for the truck ( using the VIN ), shipped to door was only $24.85. Ford Parts Network is a great company to do business with; highly recommended.
I am able to program the new key ( PATS II ) myself ( on my 99 ) since I have two good ( programmed ) keys, if I had only one key, it would have been necessary to have a Ford dealer or specialty locksmith make the key ( unless the truck was a pre 98 with a PATS I system; then only one good key is needed ). I have been told that the cost of this programming and a key is around $100.
The programming procedure is as follows: insert the first good key turn it to the run position wait until the security light goes out, turn to lock and remove the key'; now insert the second good key and repeat the step; finally insert the new key and repeat. The security light will light up for three seconds to indicate that the new key has been successfully programmed.
That's all there is to programming the new key; total time less than one minute.
Moral of this story - even if you have two good keys, order another ( or 2 ) and program them yourself and avoid future headaches and expense.
