Intake manifold leak

After replacing the intake manifold due to an antifreeze leak, the car will not start. It was starting prior to fixing this. The only problem before was the leak. Now it won't start. It'll turn over, but won't start. Help please!

SOURCE: I need to drain the

Not 100% sure but if you look up under exhaust manifold area, on block,is usually a common place. Simple hex head plug into block on most. Are you sure just pulling lower rad hose, and thermostat housing off won't get you where you need to be?

SOURCE: intake manifold leaking coolant at expansion tube nipple

It is pressed in. I usually just take the nipple out and run a threader into the hole and place a piece of threaded copper pipe into the newly tapped hole. The factory uses a thin steel tube and they rust out if the cooling system is not properly maintained.

Your intake manifold may be cracked. It is plastic and is know to cracking. If you take a flash light and look behind the intake, you should see a small puddle of antifreeze or a slight crack. You will need to replace the intake manifold and the gasket, possible do a complete head job on the car since it is already leaking through.

Intake Manifold gasket replacement and/or leaking= Ford


Intake Manifold gasket~

Replacing intake manifold gasket:
Replacing the intake manifold gasket, I used the tube kind, it's a make it youself for about $6 (it's blue and the consistancy of toothpaste) follow directions carefully! You can get a tube at Autozone or any car parts store. Has been working great. Just ask the cashier for the make it yourself kind of intake manifold gasket. Sorry, I don't remember the name of it, it's been that long...lol...

As for the Intake Manifold leaking coolant....It could, but shouldn't. One of the largest problems I've seen for coolant to leak out the Intake Manifold has been due to pressure in the system somewhere... Check the classic area:
Water pump- look for either water seapage and/or coolant. You'll know if it is because you will see real water either coming out of the water pump leak hole or under the thermostat. Most of the time coolant will pool where your heater hose runs in the intake manifold.

Mentioning heater hose. Check for leaks, holes, and/or cracked heater hoses. In-addition to the water pump, heater hoses...Check the transmission system, exhaust system, fuel system, radiator system, A/C system, secondary fan (located above the water pump housing), and thermostat.Also, check all electrical connections....Hummm....This is almost the entire workings of the vehicle.

NOTE: "It seems to be an infinity kinda thing... Once one thing starts to fail and is ignored, you are bound to be fixing a chain of event failures. Therefore, Do not ignore even the smallest problem or you'll be bound for life in repairs...."

Intake manifold leak fixed


An engine needs three things to run air, fuel, spark. So check to make sure air supply is adequate. Check fuel supply. Check to see that all air has been bled from the injector rails. Check wiring again . Make sure ground strap is reattached from firewall to engine. Pull off a plug wire and check for spark. If distributor was removed make sure it was reinstalled correctly and it is not 180 degrees off. Recheck all plug together connectors. Hope this helps.

Coolant light on and leaking coolant... now white smoke and car will not start


You really won't know until you take the intake off.
There could be other problems that caused the leak before the intake cracked.
Until the intake is replaced you won't be able to do a pressure test of the cooling system.
Make sure the thermostat is replaced since it could have been damaged from the overheating episode.

Antifreeze is leaking ,cant find it anywhere. any advice?


You need to replace the upper intake manifold. They leak coolant into the engine intake. They will only get worse and may hydro-lock the motor one day when you try to start it. rb615180.jpg

1999 tahoe has water mixed with engine oil.RBM starts to decrease. what should i do ?why water mix with oil? in the future ,what are the consequences?


Get that fixed ASAP, Water in the oil will destroy the bearings. The intake manifold gaskets may be bad, leaking water into the engine. Have a repair shop check it out and recommend repairs. Do not put this off, unless you want a new car.

2000 chevy impala ls - oil spray under hood inline with serpentine belt


You may have a lower intake manifold gasket leak (or a head gasket leak-slightly less probable) the lower intake can leak onto the serpentine belt and fling oil (and/or antifreeze). The lower intake manifold gasket is usually the culprit here. There is much information about changing it if you are inclined to do it yourself. If not, expect around 800 to 1200 to fix at dealer/mechanic. This is usually accompanied by (but not always) oil in the antifreeze, or antifreeze in the oil...

93 lincoln town car leaking antifreeze down back of engine


there is a small heater hose on the pass side rear from the firewall(heater core) to the intake manifold. the plastic manifolds have a tendency to split where the hose fitting goes into the intake. If that is where it is leaking the manifold needs replacement.
