SOURCE: intake manifold leaking coolant at expansion tube nipple

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.

How do you remove the fuel line from the intake manifold on a Ford Ranger XLT with a 2.9 Litre engine?

Not sure what you are saying that broke.
If the line is plastic and the fitting has no place for a wrench, you use a tool made to release the spring tension inside the connector. AC lines use the same setup.
If the plastic line is broke, you may be able to get a repair kit at your local auto parts store. The fuel line is designed to be replaced all in one piece, not repaired.

Generally the Air charge temp sensor is in the intake tube between the air box & the intake. However, there is a possibility that it is part of the Mass air flow sensor.

2004 ford 6cly rough idle must keep giving gas

V6? does it get any better when it warms up? Does RPM rev hi to low or does it sit at one speed and shakes? Hows the plugs? first thing first, buy a can of carb/choke cleaner $ 5.00 . Remove any plastic motor cover plates that would expose the motor. Spray cleaner around the base of the intake manifold and all mating areas of the intake manifold. ( not into the air intake) does the motor rpm change or rev up? if yes, you have bad intake gasket. also spray and check all air (vacuum) hose connections for proper fit and no cracks. Check plugs and note color and condition of each and what cylinder it was from, a brown paper bag color is normal, a super clean look is lean possible coolant leak, a burnt or melted electrode is early detonation timing, oil carbon deposit bad rings or valve guides,seals, wet is to rich , air fuel mix. Several things cause this, check all seals,air lines first,air filter, cracked or split intake tube, gasket check, does it run rough at cold idle only ( possible temp sensor ) you can check alot of things to eliminate without spending cash,

Trying to lacate the idle control sensor on 2004 ford explorer 4 wheel drive

The idle air control (IAC) valve on my 4.0 L OHV is on the driver's side of the engine mounted on the side of the upper "plastic" intake manifold.
Removing the valve and CLEANING it does wonders for its operation ability.
