You need a new intake manifold

Yeah new intake manifold...you can see the crack in it. Weigh your options if you can find a used one get it. If you have the money get a aftermarket one if you plan on modding the car later or if it is already modded

Technical Note. The Edelbrock Victor Jr. EFI Intake Manifold requires Edelbrock EFI Fuel Rail Kit part# 3639, custom plumbing, and a factory style intake gasket for proper installation.

Thanks for the input guys.. It's a 99 so I believe these manifolds were plastic so it cracked... I'm gonna call around shops to see how much they charge to get it fixed.. If not i know AM has the ford racing one for 240.. It got pretty messy under the hood and under the car as well, i was pissed

If you have a little time and patience you should try to change it yourself! It's not a very hard job to do and you can save some money that way! It's not much harder than changing the spark plugs.

I wouldn't recommend buying this part off of eBay! You don't want to go cheap on an important part like this one! If you want a stock replacement get the ford racing intake from American Muscle. Free shipping and if your a member of the forum with at least 50 posts you can get a discount code of 6% on americanmuscle.com

X10000. You can get some good deals on evil bay, but there are also people making their own junk products to sell and make money on there and that can turn into a disaster

Thanks for the input guys.. So I just talked to my uncle who used to work for ford and said it possible a head could have cracked as well.. Does anyone have experience with this happening? My coolant in the reservoir did look brown and alittle muddy looking? I'm really hoping its the intake manifold so I can order the part off AM and do it myself with the help of my buddy

It's just your manifold. My coolant looked like that until I had to replace my manifold and flushed it.
