Plastic intake manifold coolant tube by egr port going to heater core cracked.
what is purpose of this coolant port? What circuit does it flow/cool?
can I by pass the cylinder head port & used copper fittings & clamps/hoses
between the resivoir return & the heater core hose.
what if I make a solid gasket out of 3 pieces.
1 thin metal, next gasket ten thin metal places inder egr valve
so no heat goes into the head.
or am I better off just disconnecting egr valve electrical connector.
yes I know on cold start it will run rough at first.
my concern is do any other coolant ports attach/connent to that port at the manifold.
I'm not worried about heat. Just head gasket/overheating motor.
thank you for your time.
have the same problem?
