2000 Mustang GT Cooling System Part Question

Well my mustang overheated today on the way to work.

I get to work and pop the hood and it looks like a hose has failed. But I look closer and the stud the hose sits on broke off in the hose!

Does anyone know the part # for the male end of the coolant hose where it goes into engine?

The hose enters on the top left of the engine. The "stud" that hose clamps onto has broken off. There are 2 bolts holding it on so I HOPE its a replaceable part.

I will try and post pics later on.


Thanks in advance for your help!

When you say the top left of the engine, do you mean back near the fiewall at the left rear corner?? Looking at it from the front of the car?

yes, hose exits from the firewall about maybe 15 in from the side wall of the engine compartment and attaches to a stud that enter the engine

This has all the earmarks of a cracked plastic intake. This is where mine started 4 years ago.

Is this the OEM intake w/o the aluminum coolant crossover?

Well, all of them do this prior to the '02 models at some point. They usually crack behind the alternator but some crack at that heater hose nipple there at the rear of the intake.

You can't really bypass the heater core and drive it is the intake nipple that is at fault. Your most likely going to have to replace the complete intake manifold with the updated intake with the alum. crossover.

If your not mechanically inclined, you will need a mechanic to verify that this is whats happened here. If so, your out a car for a time.
Don't drive it to a mechanic as it will overheat again. See if he could come to it.

Do a search on this sight, there is a lot of good info on this issue here. I replaced my '98 nPI with a Dorman product and have had no issues. There are others.

Good Luck, GT

I just did a search on the internet for mine. At the time Ford was wanting $600+ just for the updated intake.

I went with the Dorman unit from A1 Auto for $200 + ship. The interior surfaces of the intake are free of flash enabling it to flow slightly better than the OEM piece and the port seals are integrated into the part as well. No gaskets to fumble with. I have had no issues with it whatsoever. It took me 3 hrs. to install it. Be sure to use anti-seize in the intake bolts upon install. They are a bit small in my opinion.
