What is it?
The wife had the X towed home today. Looked like a blown upper radiator hose. Since it was giving me some leakage a month ago, I went and replaced it. (it was a GATES and only 2.5 yrs old..) Not much fluid was gone, so I capped and started it up again. Seemed ok, then I came out later and coolant was flowing out from the bottom, like behind the steel wheel on the crane shaft... (if my terms are correct) Can't really see the leak, but I think the only thing back there is the water pump. I did put this Airtex AW4114 on, in Aug 2006.. got about 100k out of it.
What do you think;
- It's the pump or
- It's something else
I do have the Rotella Red 300k coolant in, did that about 185k?
