    Maintenance and Repair
    Thank you for the Ford info - great stuff to see. For the record, I originally filled the cooling system as prescribed above. It was only after it was still puking that I tried burping/running it open. I'm going to put new timing chain/water pump gaskets, seal back up the radiator and put a new...

    I just replaced them, but I guess it is possible that I screwed it up. Although I was insanely cautious and purposely thorough...

    Thanks for the diagram! The bolt did have loctite on it... I just didn't see any huge leak. I wonder if it could be an internal block leak...

    Major Update So I've finally had a bit of time to wrench on this POS, and here's a walk-through of what I found: Pulled the radiator: Rear Looked okay Front was a little plugged up with debris, nothing crazy Hoses looked like they were lined with rust, but no outright blockages...
  7. Broken EGR pipe; can't find replacement

    Maintenance and Repair
    Just do an EGR delete in the mean time. You're going to have to go to the junkyards I think - I couldn't find any new ones for sale. It will have to be a Gen IV tube, the pre 2000 tubes are different. Or pay a shop to weld yours back up.

  10. $20 Reward to 1st Person w/ Solution! Paypal Ca$h!

    Maintenance and Repair
    Thanks for the advice guys - I think I'll try just doing the radiator/hoses for now. As far as the coolant, I'm filling to the lower "cool" fill line when it's, well, cool.
  11. $20 Reward to 1st Person w/ Solution! Paypal Ca$h!

    Maintenance and Repair
    The plugs looked ok when I pulled them last time. I do see a steady stream of coolant flowing in when it's warm. If it's been driven around, I do see the bubbling (see vids). I'll see what NAPA carries to test the coolant/oil/exhaust... Thanks for the replies and keep them coming!

  13. $20 Reward to 1st Person w/ Solution! Paypal Ca$h!

    Maintenance and Repair
    Yes, sort of. I went from OEM to Autozone. I know the AZ Dorman products are suspect, but the idea here is that the cap's lack of ability to hold pressure allows the coolant to boil right? I don't see this as an issue since the car runs perfect without a cap, no boiling, no increase in level...

    Maintenance and Repair
    I'm at wit's end with this car. I'll Paypal $20 to the first person who can propose a solution to fix this damn car, or accurately diagnose the problem! Symptoms: Classic loss of coolant through reservoir tank - only when engine is warm and shut down. Lots of rust in the cooling system...

  16. I searched "coolant" NOTHING FOUND!

    Maintenance and Repair
    Coolant? If we're just talking antifreeze just buy 4 gallons of the 50/50 Prestone mix. It says that it's good for all systems (even stupid GM Dexcool)...
  17. Taking the Plunge - Head Gasket Repair Questions

    Maintenance and Repair
    :angry: Well I finally buttoned everything up and once I figured out the EGR Delete issue I've been on the road ~100 miles. Careful miles, just testing everything out. I got home after a decent commute (engine was warm, never showed signs of overheating) and came back out to a puddle of coolant...
  18. tires with bad balance and tires with less treads, which to be replaced first?

    Aesthetics, Interior, Wheels and Tires
    If you're pinching pennies then just go buy a used set from one of those shady looking places. Replace the two worn tires, have them balanced and mounted up front. Bam. Problem fixed for less than $100. BTW - trading it in is pointless. Even if the dealer tells you they're giving you $1k for...

    Go to discounttiredirect.com and price a set. The local stores will price match the total shipped cost. You're looking at $400 installed for all 4...
  20. EGR Delete Information

    Maintenance and Repair
    Thanks for the diagram - awesome! Well it turns out that evaporative sensor was just left unplugged (oops!) I also found that the PCM ground strap was not bolted back on to the heat shield (BIG oops!) Pulled the battery to test and so far so good - no CEL...
