I’m afraid you’re out of luck. Ford stopped paying out on these claims back in 2006.


A class action lawsuit forced Ford to extend coverage for rupture of the coolant cross over to 7 years from original purchase date (IIRC). Your type of crack would not be covered anyway. Replacement intakes have an aluminum cross over. The settlement includes reimbursemet for replaced intakes.
