98 2.8 5-speed.
I've discovered a small coolant leak. It seems to be coming from
the heater hose connection to the rear of the block. From the top side I
can't see the hose connection or even get my hands in the area but I can
see some coolant on the bell housing below the hose. From underneath
still can't see the connection but I can just manage to squeeze my hand
up there near the hose and it is wet.
I guess my question is .... how do you access this area? It looks
like I might have to remove most of the pluming (vacuum hoses, PCV pipes
etc) to access from the top. Just looking for a heads up from someone
who has had this problem.
