04 SVTF: What is this part called?
On a 2004 SVTF, mounted to the driver's side of the engine block , in front of and below the coil pack, there is a housing with a sensor on top. Coolant lines run in and out of it. What is the name of this part?
I think I might have a leak coming from beneath it. After the engine cools, there is a small amount of fluid beneath that area. Anyone ever experience this?
Thanks for the assist.
This leak is common, it comes from a plug on the bottom front that doesnt quite seal right. You can get a viton o-ring that will fix the issue, or you can call steve at Tousley Ford and he will hook you up with a contour housing. Its about $50 but it replaces the whole housing and fixes the problem.
Link for your reference:
They're Viton -203 Viton O-Ring, 75A Durometer, Black, 5/16" ID, 9/16" OD, 1/8" Width.
Thanks for the quick response, looks like I have a project for the weekend !
It's a fairly easy project too.
But just make sure:
- your engine is cooled down
- you are on a flat surface
- you have something to catch all of the coolant that will drain out
- And that you have a new bottle of coolant to put in.
I'd say it should take you 30mins - an hour, depending on your mechanical skills, and how dirty you get ... lol. ... oh, and whether or not you are drinking a bit while working.
Hey some of us enjoy a beer or 2 while working on the car. [;)]
I had the same problem. Picked up the whole housing from Orileys for 45ish bucks. Only took an hour or so to change it.
A thumbs up for the thermostat kit from Tousley. You need to buy a screw in plug for the bottom of the housing from a hardware shop. Fits nice.
