Quick question, this a manifold leak?
Getting ready to pull the Cougars dash; starting on the t45 swap. For preventative maintenance I'm going to replace the heater core and ground it while the dash is out.
I found what seems to look like a leak on a pipe nipple at the back of my intake manifold. Do you think this is a time bomb waiting to blow, or does it look okay? I have heard stories of connections flying out of the manifold. It seems dry and I have no leaks on the car, but it looks there is some old dried out coolant under the hose clamp.
PI intake is in the plans but I don't want anything else to do when the car is torn apart for the swap.
