Re: leaking heater pipes on lower manifold

What engine is it, and what is actually leaking? If it is the manifold itself because of corrosion, you can normally weld it up. If it is the piping, is it cracked or corroded. You may be able to patch it up or weld it too.

Re: leaking heater pipes on lower manifold

Where is it leaking from? Sometimes they rust out on the ends back towards the firewall. It's not just hose clamps coming loose is it?

Re: leaking heater pipes on lower manifold

Don't spend that money on fixing it !
Check where its actually leaking?
Can be re- flanged or welded etc As said....
