Hello, I'm attempting to repair my daughters 2001 Ford Windstar van. It is a 3.8l auto trans with 165k on it. The repair that I'm attempting is the replacement of the coolant bypass tube that is located on top of the intake manifold. I think the tub is pressed into the manifold on the drivers side and runs across the top to the passenger side were it connects to the over flow bottle and water pump. I removed the two retaining screws and tried to remove the tube. It wouldn't come out of the intake after prying and pulling hard. Does anyone know how to remove this part? Do I need a slide hammer? Your help is greatly appreciated! should I by a new one, repair the hole that is in the current one or get one from a salvage vehicle?
