    Thank you for your response... I see one output front top intake manifold on my 4.6 engine, where is the other output located?

    What killer ride said. You can get replacement connectors from the parts store. If you are attempting to bypass the heater core then get the 5/8 hose. Replacing the heater core is a job but not that bad if you take your time. I have done it twice and it's really not that bad, just a lot of screws

    Hi Phillip s fees, Thank you for post... It's looks to be quite the job and, hoping later to replace... Again thank you, and glad to hear it's not so troublesome to replace...
