In the section repair of models with a mechanical transmission is described. Repair of models with an automatic box is similar, without considering little changes. The engine falls with a transmission down through a motor compartment. For this purpose the workplace with an elevating platform or a jack with the corresponding loading capacity, with steady support, and also a rigid assembly table on rollers is necessary for you. Masterful Fords work with the following tool:
- the elevating mechanism for the engine 303-122 (21068А);
- clips of hoses of cooling, the tool for removal and installation 303-397 (24003), the razborochny adaptation;
- the tool for removal of a drive of wheels 308-237 (16087).
Pay attention to the following general instructions:
- before a detachment of a wire of "weight" from the negative plug of the storage battery write down all codes of malfunction of your car, in particular, codes of a radio receiver, its kept radio stations etc. In memory of the electronic control unit after shutdown of the plug of the storage battery codes are erased. The control unit includes the emergency program and usually restores codes in movement after 16 km of run. If it does not occur to your car, it is necessary to go to the dealer of Ford and to restore the electronic control unit — procedure takes some minutes. This instruction is valid at all works at which you disconnect a "weight" wire from the negative plug of the storage battery;
- if you plan engine diagnostics, merge engine oil and remove the oil filter. Workshops usually use special nippers for removal of collars of hoses. Provide itself with such tool.
- never open a stopper plum of cooling liquid or a cover of a broad tank on the hot engine — you risk to be scalded!
