Re: Crown Vic Coolant Loss
I'm not really looking for a performance manifold, but I won't rule one out if the price is right. The person who will be driving this is a 60 year old lady, so I don't quite need neck-snapping performance. If the manifold is bad, which I haven't got a chance to take a real good look at yet, I will have to find the replacement. For the sake of arguement, if I go to Ford, and they tell me a new manifold is $250.00, and the guy down the street sells a "Brand X" for $175.00...guess what, I'm getting the money for the cheap one put in my hand. Personally, I would go with OEM every time for this kind of job, but it's not my call for this one. I know sometimes the off-brand parts don't have the clips, or brackets, etc. that the OEM pieces do. Has anyone used a non-Ford manifold and had good luck with it?
