Remove everything down to the intake, Remove intake then remove head remove old head gasket place high temp. sylacone and let stand for a few min's till tacky. Then put new gasket on and start with the corners then add other bolts. Thghten down evenly. replace intake on ect.
This is really hard without knowing what all is in your vechicle but this is what you need to do to replace, A extra tip you might try a bottle of liquid glass , This works if not to bad yet.
Good luck to you.

Water pump failed. Car overheated. Engine lost power. Car smoke out from back of engine and from rear of car. I replaced water pump. Car still smokes when I drive it. Still has no power.


Notorious for intake leaks, the composite plastic intakes crack and leak coolant-as to the lack of power, you mght have overheated it and done some damage to the engine. There was a recall (information below) for the 4.6 for the intake-the overheating and lack of power means you should at least have compression checked and go from there-you may have bad head gaskets or worse. Do a compression test before you do anything else.

Ford Motor Company will extend the recall (01M02) on 4.6L V8 equipped vehicles with plastic intake manifolds. Some of the composite intake manifolds used on 4.6L SOHC engines may develop fatigue cracks at the coolant crossover duct. This condition could result in engine coolant leakage which, if not serviced, may cause engine overheating. Complete loss of coolant may result in engine damage or engine failure.
The updated recall now includes:
• Certain 1996 through 2001 Model Year Crown Victoria Police Interceptor
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Model Year Crown Victoria with Taxi
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Lincoln Town Car Limousine and Livery Prep Package
• Certain 1996-2001 Crown Victoria Taxis, Police cars and Lincoln Town Car Limousine and Livery cars.
• Certain 1996 through 1997 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant from the beginning of production for the 1996 Model Year through January 28, 1997.
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant from November 22, 1997 through December 15, 2000.
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Crown Victoria Taxi Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant from November 22, 1997 through December 15, 2000.
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Lincoln Town Car Limousine Prep Package and Livery Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the Wixom Assembly Plant from November 22, 1997 through December 15, 2000.

It appears that I have a leaking/blown head gasket on my 1993 Town Car. There is coolent in the oil. I haven't had a chance to do a compression test. With the 4.6, is this the most likely source of the...


don't run the engine with coolant in the oil the sugar content in most anti freexes will crystalize the rod and main bearings causing severe internal damage to the crankshaft! pull the spark plugs one at a time! to see which one has water on them and then remove the cylinderhead on that side and replace the head gasket and check for a crack around the exhaust valves but tis better when you tear a engine down! too! replace both!! head gaskets!
