      I have a 2013 base model explorer with a 3.5L w/o turbo, 69,000 miles. The radiator/front manifold has a 1 inch crack in it and I am attempting to replace with an aftermarket part.

      The problem I am having is there seems to be different manifolds for the same engine. (I do not have California emissions). From my research there are two ID numbers, BT43-AE thru AH and DA83-BA. The ID number on my manifold is DA83-5G232-B, I’m assuming that it falls in with the second ID number, but wanted to double check before ordering a new one.

      So you need to replace the radiator and the exhaust manifold?

      Here are the OEM part #s. Just have to matchup build date and tow or no tow package.

      I think what SV2 is saying that it's the manifold on the front(nearest the radiator).
      EDIT: after reading the original post again, I might be wrong....but it would be interesting that both have a 1" crack.

      @SV2, can you post a picture of the crack?

      Yes, I was confused on what exactly he was referring to. That's why I figured I'd post both areas for him to cross reference if he wants to go aftermarket.

      Welcome to the Forum SV2.:wave:
      A picture, if possible, is always a good thing to use for issues like this.

      This is the front manifold for a base 3.5 I just replaced one on my 15. And when you buy the gasket if you go to. auto zone you have 3 choices a walker . Oem ford . Or a felpro the felpro is far far far more superior of a gasket than even the oem one.

      Thanks for all of the reply’s, I’ll get a pic of the crack when I can.

      Yes just the manifold is cracked, sorry about the confusion.
