I have a leak across from 1.Looks like it it coming from in back of the timing cover
but I cant pinpoint it.Any ideas?Thanks....Bob
|Yes, sounds like the timing chain cover gaskets
are leaking. The cover has 2 coolant passages.
The gasket on one or both are leaking. After
removal, inspect the cover for corroded aluminum.
May need to have the it replaced as well.
|I have a leak coming from across area #1 as well. It's so bad that after replacing
the lower intake manifold gasket (which I thought was the problem initially), as I was
refilling the radiator with coolant it started dripping from there, the engine wasn't
even on. How can i tell whether it's the timing chain cover gasket or the head
gasket near cylinder #1? For info, I have no coolant in my oil, or oil in my coolant,
and my car didn't smoke white, basically no internal leak; just a bad external one.
Could a bad head gasket fail, yet only cause the coolant to leak externally?
|You are going to have to look through the wheel
well to get a good view. Remove the inner fender
|I have a water leak but oil level is okay, is it still possibly the intake manifold
|Yes, leaking intake gaskets are very common.
Could also have a rear headgasket leaking.
