I have a big portion of my TB gasket exposed on the right side due to not having a bolt there but when I try to pull the gasket away from the intake manifold it still forms a seal so I thought it wouldnt leak. Yesterday I saw some fresh coolant on the tranny and was hoping it wasnt from the LIM gaskets which I just replaced so its obvious that its the TB right? There is nothing to do about this other than to get a new upper manifold because the bolt hole in the manifold for the exposed side of the TB is cracked but Im perfectly fine with that. Im getting a new one for Christmas along with my exhaust system but hopefully coolant isnt getting in the intake.
