I have a 98 Trooper leaking engine coolant from above the the oil pan and can't see where the source is. It leaks alot after it has been parked for several hours, and very little when the engine is running.
All hoses have been replaced and no change.
The dealer replaced the water pump at 130K miles, now have 170K.

where is such a simple word
3.2L V6, SOHC head 6VD1 (not the 6vd1w twin cam heads)
x marks the spot
asked many time here, and same answer.
if you look , you see it, then see its not possible to get to the 2 rear bolts (telling you what?)
pull engine block, ? no
pull intake, yes.
with my experiance on these engines it's usually the upper outlet hoses running from the heads into a t then into the upper radiator hose they are pain to replace but 3 out of 3 of my v6 isuzu's have had the same problem you'll have to pull off the theromstat and the coil pack the hoses are very small and run from the end of the heads one on each into a t then into the radiator hose just under the housing
Recheck the connection of the upper hose that leads to the engine side with particular attention to the lip of the metal tube. In most instances, it would be the hos not pushed in properly or a clamp that is not tightened wholly encompassing the hose. Additionally, you may want to check the thermostat housing for any cracks/leaks.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
