Answers :

I would put the car on car ramps and put a brick or something behind the back wheels for security and then you will need an screwdriver or a socket to remove the clamp and normal you use the same one on the top normal socket size is 5/16 or 1/4.

My 1998 Ford Escort leaks water into the cab side of the firewall, causing water to build up in various compartments inside the dashboard. When I take a left turn, it spills out onto the floorboard. I have already confirmed that it is water and not anti-freeze, and it has to be a clogged condenser drain hose, as I live in Florida and haven't touched the heat since I bought the car. My problem is this - I can't find the hose to unclog it! I have found several different explanations of where it is

I have a 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 with the DOHC motor. The car developed a severe lead around the front of the motor. I replaced the water pump and that fixed part of the problem. Now there is a constant leak somewhere above the AC compressor. I was thinking the lower radiator hose, but it is dry at the connection and no sign of a hole in it. The dripping of the anti-freeze is across the AC compressor.

I have a 2003 Ford Focus ZTW and it is leaking coolant. It is leaking from what looks like a small plug right under the two main hoses. But it isn't leaking from the hoses.

I own a 1999 Ford Expedition and it is pouring antifreeze from the bottom of the vehicle. I have inspected the radiator and both top and bottom radiator hoses and they are not leaking. The amount of fluid that is leaking emptys the resavoir in a matter of minutes. Is there some type of pan that houses the radiator fluid when it is not in the radiator itself? Any suggestions on where it might be leaking from if it's not a busted hose or radiator?

'92 ford ranger, coolant everywhere, no visible hose damage, no visible leaks. Took off the top hose, inspected, found no splits. Replaced it. Filled the radiator, started it, idled to the point of pressure increase and thermostat opening, no visible leaks. Letting it sit in the garage for the night to "dry off" a bit for the night and gonna hit it again tomorrow. On cool down after shutting it off, the top hose did have visible steam coming off it--suspect it was just because it was SOAKED in
