Howdy yall. Before I tackle this thing, I wanted to ask the Ford gods. On my 02 F150 with the 4.2 V6, it is leaking coolant from a short 90 degree metal fitting pressed into the intake right there by the t-stat housing. The part wasnt very expensice, but is this an all day job or something Ford should do for me? Im a GM mechanic that owns a Ford (hmmmmmm) and it dont look that bad. Thanks a lot you all!!!
Did you find out what part it was and how much to repair it? I'm having the same leak and the parts guy at Ford could not find what part it was to order. The one part he thought it might have been is $63. It look to be one of those only from ford type parts too.
Could you give us a pic? My teacher at Lincoln Tech was a GM Master Tech and a Ford Freak. He always GM vehicles always gave him plenty of work to do. Thats why he quit Ford.
