Engine Cooling problem
1997 Mercury Villager 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 225000 miles
Looking for advice on how to remove / which hoses to remove, along with other connections at the rear of the intake manifold.
The upper intake manifold needs to come out to gain access to the small coolant pipes mounted under the intake manifold -- the rubber hoses are deteriorated on each end of these coolant pipes (these pipes direct coolant to the throttle body). These coolant lines are visible through the fingers of the intake manifold, but not accessable enough to replace with the manifold installed.
