I was on the Crown Vic website, and there was some discussion about
cracking and subsequent coolant loss from the plastic crossover pipe.
The permanent fix is replacement wit a manifold that has an aluminum
1. How frequent is this problem? Consumer reports indicates a very low
percentage of failures in the engine/fuel/coolng system categories.
2. If it is frequent, is it a high mileage/hard usage kind of thing?
The guys on the Crown Vic site seem to be performance oriented, and
likely push their cars harder than the average driver.
3. If a crack does occur, can a temporary repair be made with epoxy/KB
Weld, etc? By temporary, I mean lasting long enough to get back home
from a trip, say 300 to 500 miles.
4. Does anyone know the cost of replacement and intallation of a
manifold with the aluminum crossover?
Thank you guys for the feedback on my first post, and thanks in
advance for this one.
