Chilton manual says to remove the splash guard from the fender well. Then remove the bolts from the catalytic converter to exhaust bolts. Unbolt the manifold bolts starting from the two center bolts, two rear bolts, then the two front bolts. remove the manifold. remove old gasket. replace. If you believe that then it is a relatively simple job. Good Luck!
It is very hard.
If you aren't hearing a lot of exhaust noise and you're just getting smoke, you have either an oil leak or antifreeze leak that is getting on the exhaust manifold. If you're getting oil on the manifold you have a fire hazard and should take care of the problem immediately. If you hear exhaust gas leaking around the manifold you need to replace the gasket or possibly the manifold is cracked and you need to replace the manifold.
Intake manifold gasket may be leaking - check for loose bolts or replace fasket.
Just downstream after the exhaust manifold
Most oxygen sensors are in the exhaust pipe....between the exhaust manifold and the catalytic converter.
On the passenger side, way back, under the exhaust manifold.
UNDER HOOD, DRIVER SIDE, LOWER ENGINE AREA, BELOW EXHAUST MANIFOLD FLANGE, MOUNTED IN EXHAUST PIPE
Bank 1 is on the passenger side. Bank 2 is on the drivers side. The O2 sensors are screwed into the exhaust system. Follow the exhaust manifold rearward and you will find the O2 sensors.
yes, most cars are not fitted with gaskets when manufactured. as you remove the exhaust manifold bolts the metal on both ends tend to warp and are not true to each other, therefore requiring a gasket to seal any potential leaks from the metal being distorted
There usually on the exhaust header
on the passenger side underneath the cab. in front of the cat. where the exhaust manifold comes together.
If you cant find your 2000 F150 4.2 V6 Temp. gauge sensor on the intake manifold, try looking underneath the engine. Back of driver side cyl. head that's where I found mine sensor was broken off. Jumper this connection turn key to on position, if gauge goes replace sensor.
They are located on the passenger side. Sensor1 is right past the exhaust manifold, and sensor 2 is after the cat.
Exhause leak? Bad Muffler? Leaking or cracked exhaust manifold? Bad EGR valve?
You may have a problem with the fuel/air mixture. Your engine may be running way too rich. The raw fuel is being dumped into the exhaust manifold and burning there. But I think you may have a burned or leaking exhaust valve or two on one side, or poor combustion due to bad wires, plugs etc.
it's in the exhaust pipe just beneath the flange where the manifold meets the pipe prior to the catylic converter.
There are 4 O2 sensors or the 4.2L V6 F150: 1 on each exhaust pipe just after the manifold junction & 1 on each exhaust pipe just after the catalytic converter.
downsteam from exhaust manifold right before you get to the catalytic converter becarfull removing probably be rusted preety badly
what motor is it? on my 1990 F150 5.8L 351W its located on the front passenger exhaust manifold. looks kinda like a space ship
How do I replace the block heater in my 1998 F150 4.6L?
it could be that your catylitic converter is plugged up. disconect the exhaust system and see if it glows red. if it does connect it back. this could mean that your muffler is the problem. if not this then it could be that an exhaust valve is cracked. the same thing happend to my 1992 ford f150. it could be that your catylitic converter is plugged up. disconect the exhaust system and see if it glows red. if it does connect it back. this could mean that your muffler is the problem. if not this then it could be that an exhaust valve is cracked. the same thing happend to my 1992 ford f150.
yes you can on eBay too
yes they are basicly the same truck
