I'd rather not remove them from the Y pipe, I just want to remove the heads.

All 6 bolts are out.

Thanks,

Steve,

Take it from me, the guy who broke eight bolts on the installation of headers to
his 1988 2.9. Just pull those two bolts on each manifold that connects them to
the Y pipe. They are of a larger size, easier to get at, and will make this job
a lot less difficult.

Oh, and please coat the threads with anti-sieze when you get everything back in.

Subject: strange rattle

hello all,
recently my '98 ranger (2.5L, manual) has started making a rattle underneath
the cab...approx center of cab. it only makes the sound when i've been
driving for a while in 4th or 5th and under a load (long highway driving or
up somewhat steeper grade hills). does anyone have any suggestions as
to the possible cause? it's in the shop now for 30k maintenance and inspection
but with it raining today they said they mite not be able to reproduce the
symptoms; which is reasonable because i don't hear it when it's raining. any
help, comments or suggestions would be helpful

thanks,
dan

My 99 Ranger had the check engine light come on today. The dealer can not
take it till next week so I would like to check to make sure that my
driving to work everyday is not going to damage anything. Is there anyway
of reading the codes via the light, I do not have a tester.

the pump again and now it's fine.
Thanks,

Subject: Antifreeze leak

Sorry it's not a ford. My Daughter has a 1984 Buick Century V6 3.0l. The
radiator had a hole in it and the cap was bad and the thermostat was stuck
closed. I replaced the radiator, cap and thermostat. I started the car and
noticed water leaking from the water pump. I replaced the water pump and
started it again. Once again there is a smaller leak from some where behind
the water pump pulley. It's impossible to see behind the pulley. Any
comments? Are the freeze plugs near the pump ? Or could it be a head
gasket. I haven't noticed any steam coming from the exhaust or water in the
oil. Any help would be appreciated.

Brian
