96 t-bird water leak at back of intake
Hello all. My first post, lol. My nephew just got a 96 t-bird with the 4.6L. Nice car. It belonged to his great grandfather. It only has 60K miles.
Today it sprang a leak at the back of the intake manifold. I crawled on the motor with a flashlight and a mirror to try and find the leak. There is a black round thing with vent hole in the shape of a fan blade located in the center of the manifold. It looks like the intake runners meet the block at this point as well. What is this black thing? Is it connected to the intake manifold? the water is coming out in this area. Can you guys help me with this?
