Coolant Leaking

Hey All, I have coolant pooling up on 2 sides. above and behind the water pump and below the thermostat which changed a year ago or so. The thermostat housing is not wet at all. I believe it is coming from the intake manifold gasket. Does that sound reasonable? If so, is this a relatively easy replacement? Looks like a pain. Thanks.

Re: Coolant Leaking

Thanks for the link. I have a Haynes manual as well. All in all how is this project in difficulty? Is there any other maintenance items to do while in there?

Re: Coolant Leaking

Can do a thorough clean and inspect on the throttle body.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Re: Coolant Leaking

How is the overall difficulty of this? If all goes well how long does it take? Thanks again.

Re: Coolant Leaking

Here's the full rundown on the throttle body, the instructions are for a Mustang 5.0, but there's not much difference.

Re: Coolant Leaking

got the intake manifold off. Not too bad, but, having trouble getting the surface on the block shiny clean. The gasket was baked on there pretty good. Used gasket remover and it helped a lot. The surface is smooth but discolored. Will it be ok as long as it is smooth to the touch? Thanks.

Re: Coolant Leaking

Discolored is fine as long as clean and flat.
