    it has a hole on top of the 90 degree turn.it could be from wear or just not from changing water when i should i dont know.the truck has 217365 miles on it so i don't want to take intake off.i think i'm going to put jb weld on it and then a piece of rubber hose and a clamp.hopefully this works.
