Theres a rusty pipe by my manifold that immediately leaks the water out as soon as you pour it in. What is this and how do you repair it?

    If it's the pipe that runs 'under' the intake from the water pump, the manifold will need to be removed to replace that pipe. It actually feeds the heater core at the rear of the engine!
