I was pulling off my manifold, so I could get it polished. I look down and freaking broke the nipple on the double control solenoid, but since the hoses are so brittle, Iam about to do a Brain transplant on my 7. Any suggestions .
I am just about finished with my hose job.... the only trouble I had was on 2 parts. First the hoses around the TCA, It's really hard to get down in there with tools. Next the hoses back by the secondary turbo (there are like 5 or 6) tools hard to get in there too. Good luck, looks pretty nice when finished
I would recommend plenty of valium with a beer chaser. This is the most diabolical job on a 3rd gen and if you can do it correctly you are a MAN. Take tons of notes, digital pictures for reference and don't forget to test the solenoids and check valves or you will be very sorry. It will take MUCH longer than you think if you do it correctly - probably a week your first time. Really.
If you can afford it have someone else do it. It's worth it.
