Thumbs down

I have a 2002 Taurus with a DOHC engine, but the tee the goes from the water outlet hose (part #1F1Z*8A521*B broke. It is a tee from the water outlet hose, to the lower radiator hose, and a small line that runs back to the coolant overflow tank. I went to the ford dealership and found out instead of being able to get this one tee, I have to buy the entire water outlet hose ($150)!

I've looked in two junk yards and this piece is gone from both. I was wondering if anyone knew a place that I could get this one tee from, or something that I could use as a tee for this? I was thinking about trying to find a heater hose tee that would fit and clamping it down, but I am unsure if that would work.

Can someone please give me some suggestions on this?

Thanks! I'm just trying to look at it to see if it is the right piece... Is there a way to check the part number for the part you listed? I tried typing the part number into their search box but nothing comes up.

Also on there, it says 2000-2007, but the guy at the ford dealership said only this part from a 2001-2002 taurus dohc will fit.

Again, I appreciate the help (more than you know...) but I'm just trying to verify that it is the correct part. I sent them an e-mail asking for a picture of it, but I'm not counting on getting it anytime soon, if they do send one.

I'd email them. Torrie will make sure it's the part you need

You could also post a WTB ad here, some people go to the yard fairly regularly. I'd go grab you one, but there were no newer duratecs out there.

I just got an e-mail from Torrie helping me make sure that it is the right part. (that was real quick...)
Thank you so much for your help, I was searching everywhere and couldn't find anything.

I just got the part that I needed yesterday, but can someone give me a little help as to how to remove the old one? I can probably get it if i remove the intake going to the part that covers the air filter, but I'm trying to see if its possible without removing that?

Can you post a pic, so I could get an idea?
I'm not to familiar with the setup on the newer cars.

Here's the instruction on removing the bypass tube, which seems to be connected to the part you are replacing. It says you need to remove the air-cleaner assembly. The air cleaner assembly is not hard to remove so just do it to save the trouble. The engine bay is so cramped that I remove the air-cleaner tube almost everytime I do anything.

Thanks! It was only connected by hose clamps, but I wanted to make sure before I started pulling on it and something breaks... But I got it off pretty easily. Now to find a way to get it back on... my hose clamp pliers don't seem to want to fit in these small areas...

Hopefully I can find something to just tie it open, slide everything in place, and cut the string to clamp the hoses down...

I replaced all those clamps with regular hose clamps to make it easier.
