Coolant Leak May Occur at the Radiator Hose Joints, Hose Clamp TSB 95-6-16 for 95-96 BRONCO, ECONOLINE, F-150-350 SERIES; A coolant leak may occur at the radiator hose joints. This can be caused by: Debris on the sealing surface; Misassembly of the hose and/or clamp; Defective or damaged hose clamp; "Mega" hose clamps are to be used, if needed, because they have 30% more clamping force than clamps used in the past. They expand and contract with the thermal cycling of the joint, thus retaining their clamp load and efficiently sealing the joint over long periods of time. The screw-type dual-wire and worm gear style band clamps are less robust under climatic and system thermal cycling. THE "MEGA" CLAMPS WERE SPECIFICALLY SIZED FOR 1995 AND LATER VEHICLES. THEY ARE NOT APPROPRIATE FOR VEHICLES BEFORE THE 1995 MODEL YEAR BECAUSE THE JOINT SEAL CONFIGURATION AND DIMENSIONS ARE DIFFERENT. IF A 1995 VEHICLE IS RECEIVED WITH A DUAL-WIRE CLAMP, REPLACE IT WITH A COMPARABLE BAND CLAMP..." read more

Goodyear High Miler Hose Kit in a 95-96; called GY tech last yr for the 96's 5.0 lower hose in Hi Miler - no go....teckkie told me to use 94 kit and order GTR-62076 for lower hose; for $13.99 (Summit price). None spcified by GY for 95-96 because, the bottom hose will be too long if you have a factory oil cooler.

Overview; "...coolant drains to the bottom of the radiator where it flows out thru the lower radiator hose to the water pump inlet. The pump then forces the coolant into the block, where it flows around the cylinders to the back of the block. Cutouts in the head gasket regulate where & how much coolant enters the head & returns to the front of the engine. Within the head(s) is where the coolant reaches its highest temperature, which is why all coolant sensors are near the head(s). In V engines, the coolant flows into a crossover journal in the intake manifold before diverging; in straight engines, it diverges from the head either thru the t'stat or into the heater outlet. In either case, this is generally where its temperature is detected by both the sensor for the gauge & by the ECT for the PCM (EEC). Some V engines also have a bypass hose which allows coolant to return directly to the water pump. There may also be a small circuit to the throttle body for de-icing, which typically returns to the radiator upper tank. Coolant that exits the t'stat flows thru the upper radiator hose into the top of the radiator & thru the core where heat is radiated into the airstream. The cool (lower) radiator tank may contain the upstream heat exchanger for the automatic transmission, and the lower radiator hose may contain an orifice which diverts some coolant to the engine oil cooler... The lower radiator hose flows TOWARD the engine. The upper hose flows AWAY from the engine. The heater hose connected to the intake manifold or t-stat outlet flows AWAY from the engine. The heater hose connected to the water pump flows TO the pump. The little bypass hose on V8s flows TO the pump. The metal line on the radiator flows TO the radiator. Hot coolant flows OUT of the head or intake manifold..."

Throttle Body Coolant Line From Radiator to Throttle Body Fabrication & Installation pics in a 96 :...Here's the photos of the Gates transmission cooler line I used. I also used Oetiker stainless smooth inside crimp clamps. I think they were 21/32" diameter = 16mm. Which is what the 162 mark on them is for....16.2mm. In the photo it looks like its close to the alternator pulley. But its not. 2D photo in a 3D world. :) It just runs across the top of the radiator and makes a loop over by the fill neck. The last photo is the short one from the water outlet on the intake to the bottom of the throttle body. Not very expensive either. I think $8 worth of hose. Its pretty high temp stuff...and good to 400psi. My cooling system doesn't quite get to 400 psi..."

Throttle Body Coolant Line From Radiator; Ford part number; "Looked at my receipt today and the part # is F2TZ8555B, not F5 like I originally listed. Sorry about that. The parts guy said the 24" one was the same number but with "A" instead on "B" at the end. Also if anyone is interested, the part number for the water outlet on the lower intake manifold that has the port for the temp sensor and tubes for the heater core and TB is E8TZ-18B402-C and it too is still available..."
