You should be able to trace out where it starts and ends, then take it off the car, get a ride to a car parts store, show it to them, and ask for a length of hose to replace it. Put the new piece back on and you're done.

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...."

2002 bonneville coolant leak


check water pump hose and the pump. a clogged thermostat can cause pressure build up and bust hoses. and of course take radiator out and check for lower hoses and crackes. if no luck, put water in radiator and run car and check for leaks. small cracks in aluminum are hard to see but expands when radiator gets hot.

I need to see a coolant system hose that leaks does the intake have to be removed


Yes there are cooling system hoses under the intake, here are instructions to remove the intake.

Instructions
  1. Remove the Intake Manifold
    • 1Drain the cooling system and relieve the pressure in the fuel system. Disconnect the negative battery cable, the air intake duct, the IAC valve connectors, the throttle position sensor and switch connectors, and the EGR solenoid valve.
    • 2Pull the EVAP canister vacuum and purge hoses, the vacuum hoses from the EVAP, the brake cylinder, pressure regulator and EGR tube. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires. Remove the distributor cap.
    • 3. Take out the three left bank injector connectors, the thermal transmitter, the ground harness, breather pipe and the upper manifold. Disconnect the fuel feed and return lines and plug them with golf tees to prevent fuel spillage.
    • 4Locate the right injector harness connectors and disconnect them as well as the fuel rail and injectors. Remove the coolant temperature switch harness connector and the water hose from the thermostat.
    • 5Loose the bolts on the lower manifold in sequence. Remove the bolts and left the intake manifold from the engine. Remove the gasket and discard it.
    • 6Clean the mating surfaces by scraping the old gasket material and carbon deposits. Clean the surfaces with solvent and inspect them for damage.
    Install the Intake Manifold
    • 7Put a new gasket in place and install the lower intake manifold to the engine. Tighten the bolts in sequence as follows: first pass-35 inch pounds; second pass-78 inch pounds and third pass 70 to 84 inch pounds.
    • 8Connect the ECT sensor connector, the fuel supply manifold and the right bank injector connectors. Connect the fuel lines and then install the upper intake manifold. Put the breather pipe in position.
    • 9Install the intake manifold ground cable, the thermal transmitter, the left bank injector connectors and the distributor. Reconnect the spark plug wires.
    • 10Continue reconnecting all the components, reversing the order in which they were removed. Connect the negative battery cable to the terminal. Refill the cooling system with the appropriate coolant.
    • 11Start the engine. Check for fuel or vacuum leaks.

Coolant leak at intake


If you have coolant showing up where it is not supposed to be, that is usually not a good sign. Coolant flows around the engine... to do what it is called... cool. You say intake as in FUEL/AIR intake? ... If that is the case, do you notice the coolant level in the resevoir dropping? If it is you have more than likely either a cracked engine block ... (very bad) or somewhere in the hoses there is a small leak, and it would be an easy fix.... just find it

I noticed that i got anti-freeze leakin from the back of motor on my y pipe


Start with the easy part. Are the heater hoses in good condition ? If there is nothing leaking from a hose can you possibly see if it is coming from the back of the engine? Could be several things maybe intake manifold gasket leaking, hopefully nothing as serious as a head gasket leaking externally, any check the easy stuff like the coolant temp switch and hoses etc. Good luck

Heating and cooling system leak under intake manifold. I cannot see the heater hoses without removing the intake manifold. What should I be looking for, this is a major leak.Thanks, Eric


You are not going to know for sure until you pull the manifold, but should be a easy fix, will be either the round welsh plugs, a corroded steel tube , or hose and clamp.
With the manifold off, a pressure test will squirt the coolant out , if it isnt immediately obvious where the leak is
