Question Answered: intake manifold?
March 30, 2013, 05:00 PM
It is probably the valley pan gasket. Just did mine. So bad news is you have to take off intake and might as well do water pump while you are in there. I would also check the condition of your timing chan cover as mine were like hrad brittle plastic. They are on the front of the engine below vavle covers.
I did it myself. Just need to take time and don't overtorque on reassembly.
You can leave water pump and take off the coolant line bracket on back of engine.
great time also to replace back heater hoses.
