OLDS ROYALE BROUGHAM WITH 148000 MILES...RECENTLY I NOTICED THAT MY RADIATOR WAS ALMOST EMPTY, SO I FILLED IT UP WITH COOLANT AND SINCE THEN I HAVE TO ADD ANTIFREEZE AS IT LEAKS SOMEWHERE...WELL I FOUND THE LEAK AND IT'S A SMALL TUBE ON ONE
1987 Oldsmobile Delta 88 • 148,000 miles
Coolant leak from under or beside throttle body
There are 2 small hoses for the throttle body there as well as the lower intake. get it pressure tested to determine the failure.
I can see those 2 other hoses but the one I'm talking about is really short and I saw the coolant leaking from it earlier this afternoon. It bends almost in a U shape...
Is that the leak??
Yeah that's where I saw it leaking...I will do a pressure check as well but I saw it leaking from the bottom side of that tube...
Common failure. you can get them at any parts store.
What is it called and how easy is it to replace? Thanks I appreciate it
Get someone from parts to come out and see it. it is not easy to do. it takes about 1.5 hours for a tech
There is problem as I live in a small town and the nearest place is over 40 min away with anyone being certified...I don't know if the way it leaks if it'll even make it that far...I just need to know what it is so I can order it next time I'm in the city...
Bypass tubes/hoses. like i said, most parts stores have them and they are inexpensive.
Thanks I appreciate all the info and help...
