What was Ford thinking?
I don't know who has had their heater hose off the 95 3.8 but it seems to me like it is the poorest setup possible. How is steel on steel supposed to seal? I'm talking about where the hose goes into the water pump. I bought an O-ring for $7.50 that turned out to be the exact same thing we have in our O-ring set painted orange and I can't figure out how to put it all back together without it leaking. I wasn't here when it was pulled off, I was at college, my grandpa pulled it off and he doesn't remember an O-ring even being on there but there is supposed to be one. I guess my question is, how in the heck do I make this thing seal.
A guy walks into an autoparts store and says "I would like a windshield wiper for my Honda Civic." The clerk thinks a minute then says "I guess that's a fair trade..."
