Exclamation 2003 Ford Ranger

a tube that attaches to cylinder head burst, losing all coolant, what is the fix for this, does the engine have to be pulled? Please help.

No, but thanks for helping. Evidently there is a water pipe (tube) goes around the back of the motor to the cylinder head. Motor has to be pulled to fix! ARGH! Daughter's car, was trying to find a cheaper alternative.

I actually just replaced that part myself WITHOUT pulling the motor. It is ford part number 8k556, cost about $112 from them. Call a junkyard. It CAN be done with the motor in but i had to take the intake manifold and valve cover off to have room and it was still very tricky but definatly possible. a whole lot easier than pullin the motor.
