Only replaced the three that were showing any misfires for now, and I can no longer get it to misfire. Now for the actual procedure of doing the job! The vehicle was not repaired. There was no check engine light, so no codes. The exhaust manifolds are still attached to the engine by some of the bolts that have not broken yet,but they are very deteriorated. You are entitled to your money, no matter who did the work and no matter whether you have a receipt for it…as long as the manifold has been replaced already.
Anyway I recieved the lawsuit letter after I got my 96 fixed. Of course, the misfiring episode happened in January, and I didn't want to tackle a big job like this and risk crippling my truck in the winter. Nothing has come loose so far! The repair involves removing the remaining nuts to remove the exhaust manifold. My criteria are: Roomy, big, wide wheelbase, low center of gravity, body-on-frame construction for optimal side crash safety. Fast forward a few years. Autonation White bear lake, Horizon parts guy and rock auto will probably be best on parts pricing. Start by carefully cleaning the gasket surface on the engine block, and place the new gaskets.
I used this kit on my 2008 F250 V10 6. Thanks Well here is what I did. I've been tied up with work and have been home in SoCal since your post. A leak can occur anywhere in the cooling system and is usually easy to find, as the coolant can often be seen spraying, seeping, bubbling or dripping from the leaky component. I retorted that I was just getting started…and only following through on my promise. Next, install these two hoses to the intake manifold.
The reply to the survey questions would use these rating scales: Very Dissatisfied — Completely Satisfied Unacceptable — Outstanding Needless to say, my experience and comments could fill a book, as could many of the other Settlement Class Members. Disconnect the electrical connectors for all eight coils, and remove them. There's more info about installing the coils in my. The manual says to relieve the fuel pressure. Print out the entirety of the lawsuit settlement I linked to above, and take it to them. Also, disconnect the electrical connectors for all eight fuel injectors.
I could go on and on, but the pattern is clear with Ford. Plugs all looked reasonable, and most looked great nice and dry, like they'd been running fine. I had them replaced in a shop 3 years ago and am having the same rough idle, p0300 - multiple cylinder misfires. Well, when I got there, no manifold. However, I read someones comments that after he used the stainless steal nuts and bolts, they came loose on him after a few days.
Position the intake manifold and loosely install the nine bolts. This is my first Ford and I would not buy a Ford again. I wonder how many other issues we each have in our cars that we will never know about because they are not safety-related therefore no recall will ever be issued. I also decided to replace the fuel filter since I'd have the fuel system de-pressurized during this job. I feel this is a safety hazard, since the exhaust fumes come into the truck through open windows and the vents. Make sure the belt is seated properly in all of the other pulleys.
They treated me very well in all this. Oil Leak: If you have an oil leak from the drivers side of the engine block, it may be coming from the seal between the engine block, and oil cooler adapter. Yesterday I found a about a class action lawsuit settlement that forces Ford to reimburse owners of certain vehicles — including mine — for repair costs already incurred. My next step is to fill out a complaint form with the attorney general and I also called a attorney. In addition, I went to Oreilly auto and bought the Dorman version of the Studs and Nuts ten pack because the nuts are self locking Oval and I installed and tighten those nuts on top of my already installed stainless steal Nuts! Now I get to buy another maniflod and have it replaced also. Just loosen the clamp and pull off the pipe. All previous payments were credited towards it.
In the meantime my 97 was acting up. After about 700 miles on the odometer, I noticed a pretty noticeable rattling noise coming from underneath the truck towards the engine area. Pull straight up on the cruise control cable to release it. Rotate the green tab circled below counter clockwise, then push toward the firewall to release the connection. Constantly screwing with those connectors is just asking for plastic breakage and bad connections. Its not bad was you get started and get over the intimidation! Finally, remove the intake manifold, and remove and discard the gaskets. Today, bill marsh Ford service has looked at the problem based on what I found.
Sounds like the coolant leak is related to the misfire. So I am in a time crunch and would like to know if there are any special tools or tech tips to do it my self. But while I've got nice access to many of the vacuum lines, does anybody know if there are particular ones that can cause misfires in the 1500-2000 rpm, moderate load scenario? We replaced several alternators prior to the manifold finally cracking enough to release all the coolant and seize the motor. Each time, they put me on hold, talk to the dealership while I am on hold, and supposedly the claim will be filed. Both sources show a non-zero misfire rate for cylinders 5 and 6, so that's probably the next place to attack. I decided to change the spark plugs during this process because it won't ever be any easier than this.
