Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
Please help, my truck is leaking water and overheating. I have changed the water pump and radator and am told the seal to the timing chain is leaking. How do I remove the damper pulley to gain access? Does anyone know?
If it overheated, the heads are aluminum. Aluminum heads warp very easily.

There will be a bolt in the center of the pulley and it will need to be removed and you will need a puller to remov the pulley. the pulley needs to come off evenly or it will bind, this i why you need thepuller, you should be able to get a cheap one for about $ 25.00 . when you go to get one tell them at the store what you need the puller for so you get the correct one. this puller is also good for removing steering wheels.
How ever the timing chain cover seal should not have water coming out of it. it sounds more like a head gasket or a frost plug.
