well i did find out this one is a pressed nipple wich outted me the whole timing cover. wow replace my timing cover due to a broken nipple. i did manage to find one for 50 bucks. now let me see....where did i place that 50 dollars?... i just had it :P Anyway, so yeah i find all this out after i bought the easy out and threaded nipple to replace it. The guy at the place I got it tells me i can return the nipple but, im out on the easy out even though you cant even see one scuff on the pretty lil thing. all I can say is I miss the old cars where you knew almost right away what part was bad and it was usually a simple fix. Now days I swear they build em to find the best way to milk the consumer. Now that Im done with that lol ty to all who tried to help.

Do keep this thread active as you repair it - adding how to pictures as you go... I'd like to see.

Frankly I'd just pull whats left of the nipple out, grab a tap set and cut some thread. Screw in a fitting and call it a day. Worse thing that happens is it leaks and you need to replace the cover anyway.

Well more good news from yesterday. A mechanic came out and looked at the car. I don't have to replace timing cover. I guess you have to order the nipple and you simply clean the area and I'm not sure how the new one goes in but I will let you know tomorrow. With pics. The nipple is however around 15 dollars. The mechanic is only gonna charge me 15 for labor to come and put it in as well. That's providing I put it back together from there but that's easy. But, I will upload some fix it pics and let you know what we use to do it and how he exactly fits the part in. Oh and for any ford owners apparently a lot of newer fords are using this style to.

Will post in a few hours how I fixed this. I am also including the part name and number if it is on the bag it came in. Very easy process.
