bethruss has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Default

I removed the clamp and hose from the engine block on the driver's side of the car per the instructions found in the forum. While pulling the hose off the metal tube the hose fits over also came off. The block that the tube came out of is near the thermostat housing and and has two sensors in this block. So, what is this block with the two sensors and how do I remove it to repair or replace it. I can post a picture later if that will help.

Thanks,
Russ

Here is a picture of the actual part with the two sensors removed. You can see on the right side of the block where the metal tube on the block is missing. This is where the hose that goes to a "T" and then to the firewall. Hope this helps. I am desparate to get this fixed.

Thanks... That is exactly it... I had to go to the Ford parts house and buy a replacement for $25 plus tax. Turns out the unit is just swedged in. So, I took a heavy duty screwdriver and hammer and tapped on the unit to loosen it up. Removed the old unit and inserted the new unit using s large socket over the hose end and tapped it in with a hammer. Reconnected everything and all is well.

Thanks again...
