I came back to my car in a parking garage this evening and as I
approached, I had that sinking feeling as I saw a puddle leading away
from the engine...
After topping off the liter of missing coolant and driving it home -
very- gently while fixated on the temp gauge and heater cranked up
all the way, I found the cause- there's a rubber hose that connects
off the external water manifold, and it now sports a half-inch wide
crack. I couldn't see terribly well, but that looks like it might be
the turbo coolant line?
I take it I'm in for a very fun job, yes? *sigh*. Any tips on this
job would be greatly appreciated...
It's strange- every other coolant line on the car is in great shape...
