Intake Manifold

What can i do to fix the intake manifold?

I have a 2000 crown vic, it has a stock plastic manifold.
It has a small hairline crack just below to heater hose line that goes into the top of the intake ,that is leaking coolant down and down into the combustion chamber where the spark plug is &causing misses.

What glue or epoxy can i use to repair . Can i use the JB weld epoxy? Please be specific. I know this is a temporary fix but i cant afford to pay 300 for a new intake.
The crack will probably get bigger over time right?

Well I think you are in luck. If you are the original owner of this, you may be able to get it repaired under warranty. And let me explain why. Ford is well aware of premature intake manifold failures on the 4.6 liter and has offered a new design on them.

Mention recall number 05N04 which mentions extended coverage for the intake manifold. This recall ended in late 2006 but I know some people who made enough noise and got their manifold covered under warranty.

Don't be confrontational about it. Be courteous about it and they may meet you in the middle by offering to pick up the part if you pay the labor.
