SOURCE: Replace thermostat in 2000 ford ranger

the open pipe that you took the hose off of is the thermostat housing, you will need to remove this to reveal the thermostat, make sure you use a new gasket with sealant when reinstalling thermostat housing to prevent leaks and dont over tighten the bolts,run both bolts down as far as you can before final tightning

SOURCE: no heat in 99 ford windstar

Check the coolant level. If it's low, what you describe will happen. There is not sufficient coolant to flow through the heater core at idle. At 60mph the water pump is spinning quickly, managing to get some coolant through the heater core, so you get heat until the rpm's drop at idle. If it is due to low level, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again, as you may have a leak.

Advance auto and auto zone sell just the flex pipe. You will need to have someone cut the old one out and weld the new one in. costs about $20 for part vs $300 for pipew/catalitic converter attached.

Where and how do you get to the lower radiator hose on 99 Cadillac sts


Re: Where is the lower radiator hose?(99)
Stand in front of the car, open the hood, and face the engine.

On the left hand side of the radiator, at the top, is the upper radiator hose; which goes to the upper water pump connection.

On the right hand side of the radiator, from the bottom, is the lower radiator hose; which goes to the lower water pump connection.

Where is the lower radiator hose 99
It is a forum and goes on about draining the radiator.

Stop leaking?


There should be rubber hoses at either end of the metal pipe to allow for engine ,movement. It would be black steel pipe and it rusts out from lack of coolant conditioner.. A final fix for this would be to take it to a muffler/ exhaust shop and have a new pipe bent to shape made out of exhaust stainless steel tubing

You will need a new pipe. You MAY get it out from the drivers side?? If not, you may have to take the intake manifold off. Job is on the line? so you are a mechanic? if not, pay a shop to replace it. I think the dealer is the only place to get a new pipe. I know the pipe you are talking about but never had to replace one.

i think your water pump is done for. replace pump and the belt and you should be good to go. that lower pipe always rotts out on these vans. might want to replace the coolant bypass hose on top while your at it. it tends to brake around the same time as the lower pipe

1995 ford windstar, 3.8L engine overheats but not all the time


are you sure its the water pump?Its located and the passenger side mid lower on the belt.One thing them cars were noted for was blown head gaskets.If you don't see any possible leaking and you smell it look at the exhaust pipe while its getting hot and you'll see with smoke come out or a lot of moisture coming out of the exhaust or a lot of dripping.Also if your radiator fans are not working and it heats up more just idling or short drives that will make it over heat and coolant to flow out of the radiator cap or over flow.I hope these things help you in locating the problem.Have a great day...
