I have a coolant leak from somewhere under the intake manifold, there seems to be a pipe going from pump to thermostat. I mean from the front of engine to the rear.
It is a 2003 Sedona 6 cylinder , (3.5 I think). I have taken the upper intake off and fuel rail and the nuts from the lower intake but it seems like it still is bolted on the belt side (front). Is there a bolt or nut inside the timing gear cover?
Seems like what I was hoping to be a hose leak fix to a total rebuild.:eek:

any input would be greatly appreciated.

update: The lower intake did have a bolt under the timing belt cover. After taking the manifold off it shows the pipe going from the pump to the thermostat. I had a rats nest in there with a dead mouse. In the middle of the pipe, it seems to have the temp sensor, so I am going to the store to buy a pressure tester to see where the leak is coming from, either the pipe o-ring or the temp gauge. I will keep posting for future people searching. It does seem that I started in the wrong location and took stuff that didn't need it, but I will find out for sure.
