intake cooling lines-problem
the other day when I parked my truck, I noticed immediately a decent sized amount of water/coolant forming under it.
I immediately popped the hood and there was a steady thin stream shooting from the nipple at the top of the intake manifold, where the cooling line enters/exits.
I found a small hairline crack in the bend. well, I didnt have the time to do much about it except a quick juririg. I pulled the hose down all the way to the base of the nipple, then double clamped it, but at the end and again right where the crack was.
no problems, stopped the leak and I thought I was good to go for then and could deal with it in a week or two.
so today, I again saw some liquid, so I thought my quikfix didnt work as good as I had hoped. but this time it was the other nipple.
anyways, I guess all this rambling is leading me to ask this, are those nipples replaceable or would I have to replace the entire manifold ? (a garage down the road said they think I need to replace the entire manifold...)
