Intake manifold crack, what to expect?
Alright, so I'm heading down to go purchase a 99 4.6 GT with a cracked intake manifold. Car dumped radiator fluid all over the place out of the manifold, etc... Car has been sitting for 3 years and was started once a year ago in that period of time. It has 80k miles, other than replacing the intake manifold with a PI model and the 01 up alternator bracket, siphoning the tank, emptying the fuel lines and fuel filter, changing the oil, changing the thermostat, putting in fresh antifreeze, and checking the plugs. Is there anything I should do before starting it, or even check before purchasing? The owner states they were fighting ford to get them to cover it under the recall but that in the long run they said you are 6 months out of the recall warranty and didn't cover it. Advice?
