2002 Ford Taurus SEL Wagon. The latest issues is a coolant leak on the top of the engine on the right, by the thermostat and the Temperature Sensor. There is a metal tube that connects the overflow hoses that go back to the reservoir to the manifold. It is metal and makes a 90 degree bend toward the back of the engine. It has corroded and has a leak. I can see in the Ford Parts list that it is sold separately. #1F1E 8N030-BA It has a flange that is pressed right up against the manifold. I am wondering how I get it off the manifold? Do I have to take the manifold off? I'll keep burning up Google until I find it or someone here can help. Thanks in advance. I attached a pic, I had to use the universal fixer (duct tape) to keep it from spraying all over the inside of the engine compartment as I limped home. Update: I got the part, It looks like it just plugs into the manifold. Seems like there should be something more to it, or it needs to be pressed in. I guess when I start pulling on the old one I'll learn how seated it is.
