I noticed an increasing leaking of coolant, so much that it was a puddle every day, whether the car was used or not. Took awhile to find the exact location of the leak, turns out it was right below the throttle body where the engine block mates with the LIM.
Heres the story in pictures. Note*** this is at 210,000 miles
Got my gaskets and sealant in order:
Next removed the plenum, LIM and TB in one piece.
A Look at the TB and its gasket, looks pretty healthy to me
A look at the plenum gasket
A look at the LIM and its mating surfaces on the heads
Tell me this one isnt bad news?? BTW my oil looks like normal oil, NOT like milky chocolate.
What do you guys think? DO those gaskets look like they have failed? Those of you who've done this, this what your LIM job looked like? Any opinions welcome. thanks.
