Are you sure it's not the A/C condensor line sweating? Don't know of any metal hoses that carry water.

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...."

Water leakin from bottom of engine


The Most common leak on the 4.3 and 5.7 are from the Bypass Hose on TOP of the Intake Manifold. It is a Quick Disconnect Fitting that corrodes and then leaks and then drains down the back of the motor.

The next possibility is a Heater Hose

Depending on how bad the leak is... If you have been running Water or a Majority Water, the FREEZE PLUGS or EXPANSION PLUGS will corrode and the water eats the metal and BAM!!!! leak

If you can provide more information, but I would start there.

Water\coolant leaking from engine after shutting engine down


It takes a lot more than a small leak to consider your engine as "totaled"
Have the system pressure tested and carefully inspected. Every leak has a source. some are easy to find, some are a bit more difficult. A shop can use a fluorescent dye and a black light to locate the source if you can't.
I'd check the corners of the intake manifold and timing chain housing. Also, check the hoses again. A small pin-hole can squirt coolant far away from the hole itself and is often very difficult to see.

I have a coolant leak and I belive I need to replace the water pump, A 2004 GMC P-up 4.3 V-8


You need to locate the water pump. It is turned by a fan belt. There should be water hoses running into and out of the pump. Water pumps have a weep hole that leaks water when the pump starts to fail. It is usually hard to see as it is behind the pulley for the fan belt. If you're seeing a leak in this area it is a pretty good chance that the pump is bad and needs replaced.

Drilled hole in intake manifold at upper radiator outlet


Did the bolt break off flush with the top of the hole? or if you remove the cover is some bolt sticking up? if there is try and use vice grips to get ahold if the bolts if it is flush then drill the bolt out and re-tap the hole. Way cheaper and likely less work too...

Leaking coolant from around water pump just put in new radiator on monday and no leaks from it or hoses, think is weap hole in bottom of water pump.


If it's the weap hole the pump is going bad. That hole is designed to leak as a "warning" that the pump is going to fail.
