Check that the antifreeze is coming from either a freeze plug which is round and about 1-3/4" in diameter, or the head gasket.

If it's a head gasket, it will have to be replaced.

If it's a hose leading to the intake gasket area, replace that part.

If it's a freeze plug, then a rubber expanding one (with a screw in adjuster) may substitute for the original metal one.

Good luck on this repair.

Intake antfreeze.leak

I hate when that happens ! if you can visually see the coolant leaking out from intake manifold @ gasket, yes it needs replaced. the gaskets. just did it to my winter car that sat outside, a lot of work , just to replace the gaskets. don't think agasket sealer would work here, intake manifold needs to come off along with alot of other things, PATIENCE is a virtue, good luck

Intake manfold leaking antfreez

Is it leaking between wear the head and intake mate together? If so you can try retorqing the bolts and see if it stops other wise you will have to replace the intake gasgets.

How do I change from a 2barrel Carb to a 4 barrel Carb. I no I need to change to an Intake manifold that suports a 4 barrel carb. Changing the Intake manifold is the question. It's on a 1973 Chevy Impala...

There is no difference in intakes on how they bolt on, both intakes bolt on the same, just make sure you use new gasgets, and also use red silacone on each end insted of the rubber gasgets they supply with the gasget kit so you get a better seal.

I have a 3500 chevrolet pickup 454 engine, i need a diagram of the intake manifold something may be blocking the ports for the performance of the egr valve.

The egr valve is pluged up from carbon build up and it quit functioning. take it off clean it up, and also inside of intake with a screwdriver and shop vac. and then purchase a new gasget thats like a screen, they sell them at autozone and put it back on. the screen gasget is for any chunk that you missed in intake and trys to plug up the egr valve again.

Wont start

most vacuum leaks are in hoses that are disconnected or have holes in them you can also take a bottle of water and spray it along the side of the intake and base of the carborater if the motor bogs or you here it **** the water in you have found you leak but it can be a leak under the intake and that is a bigger problem to find

Check the backside bottom of the carb. there's a vacuum port there. Make sure it's plugged up. How's you timing? Also try rotating distributor back and forth. It may be a timing issue. Not enough or too much.
