Ok i have a 2001 windstar with a 3.8. i have everything off but the pump will not clear the studs to come out it hits the frame side. the studs are all the way in and i still need them to go in a 1/2 inch more. This does not make any sense to me. Its like the motor has to move or something. any help thanks.

You might be able to pry the engine sideways enough to gain enough clearance. If not loosen the motor mounts then pry it.

Thanks to all. Jacking the motor up is what did it. I hope I dont have to do another one of those anytime soon. No to get the upper hose to stop leaking. i got some Indianhead gasket maker drying on it now I will see if it works tonight.

Thanks for informing us of the final resolution :)
I think this is a good instructional piece, so I copied it to the windstar section and closed it so that it does not get mucked up with a lot of extraneous posts.
