Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.I will try my best to help you with your question.

 

The pipe the comes out of the intake manifold behind the thermostat and goes to the back of the engine is part of the lower intake manifold.

 

It is not serviced separately.

im purchasing this part and need to know what is the name of it
That pipe is part of the lower intake manifold assembly. It is not a separate piece. You will have to get a lower intake manifold assembly to get the pipe.

ok im almost accept answer buti was told that this was the only metal tube in the cooling system is this correct im jus making sure because im buying the part online and dont want to purchase wrong part he said steel hose from thermostat housing to motor was all rustedout and your saying my only way out of this is getting a lowerintake manifold assembly?
The tube is the bypass tube. You also have steel tubes on the firewall for the heater core. See if he can send you a picture of the tube he is selling before you buy it. This tube is press fit into the intake manifold.

the guy that looked at my car for me told me the description i told you i took that description online and they are telling me lower and upper radiator hose or bypass tube all i know is that i need to know what to search for considering he said its the only metal hose in the cooling system connected from the thermostat housing to the motor

Can you give me a link to that web site on line?

Or the web addresses?

Does your tube look like the one in the picture below?

i dont and i just got off the phone with the guy who looked at the car and he said it has nothing to do with the intake manifold system

Do you have a 12 valve engine or a 24 valve engine?

The 12 valve will have spark plugs in the cylinder heads near the exhaust manifolds.

The 24 valve will have spark plugs in the center of the valve covers.

Ford had 2 different 3.0L V6 engines in 1999.

im not near the car and have no clue if its 12 or 24
That I will need to know. The engines are completely different.
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
its the 24

Ok. Big difference.

Ask the mechanic if this pipe the section the thermostat sits in or is it the pipe the goes from the thermostat to the water pump.

Below is what the 24 valve looks like.

And below is what the 12 valve looks like. It will have a coil pack mounted on the front valve cover near the engine.

ok so it is the 24 valve se submodel and the tube is metal and if u pop open the hood it would be on the left side under the belt and its a angled tube. i sent a bunch of pictures in this link that i think will finish this issue (http://mediamail.boostmobile.com/guest/view/message.do?lsdb=7&invite=HENrJKzVhY5cr84UzLpQ&subretailerid=BOOST&shareName=MMS&retailerid=BOOST) this metal tube is like a U shape with a straight piece attached to it at a 90 degree angle (not very descriptive). its a u with the other piece perpindicular to it. now in the pictures im pointing to it with my index and middle fingers in some and in picture number 7 that is exactly what it is with a great shot. in that pic its the upper right portion of the pic showing a rusted angled tube. in picture number 8 u see the two bolts on the right look left and its between the two tubes showing. pic nine is a great look at it also. i need to know exaclty what im searching for to buy and maybe if u can recomend a link to go buy this piece directly from ford or whatever. thanks and god bless

Thanks for the pictures. I had to compair it through 3 different manuals to locate the pipe.

Ford calls it the lower radiator hose pipe assembly.
