So here'* the background info: My radiator had a leak, so I replaced it a couple weeks ago. It was aftermarket, so the fittings I had leaked a little until I tightened them properly, and now it'* perfect. I posted not too long after the replacement that my car was still leaking coolant out from right in front of the oil pan. Well it'* been very ( maybe a few drops a day) minor until NOW.
Everytime I start my car up, it leaks like an old faucet. It won't leak until it hits 200 degrees, and then BOOM it starts dripping. Like I said it'* dripping down from the front passenger side by the oil pan, right under the crankcase pulley from what I can tell.
This pic was with my last post, and shows a tiny bit of coolant on the top edge of the water pump...
Actually the leak is above and behind that. Imagine looking at the small coolant hose that connects right behind the alternator. Then look past to where the intake manifold meets the block, and you can see coolant collecting there on a ridge. Somehow it'* weeping its way all the way down the block and dripping to the floor.
Would this be the cause of a bad manifold gasket? I thought the Series I motors didn't have any intake issues... What else could be causing this?
I can get a closer picture if anyone needs it.
