Engine Cooling problem
2001 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 117000 miles
This is the 5.2 liter Dodge motor. I have a coolant leak after the truck warms up. I cannot find the leak anywhere. It is originating from the motor, and not the radiator. The hoses are fine, and I see no evidence that the leak is coming from the connection where the thermostat is. It seems to me that I probably have a bad water pump, and using the Haynes manual I attempted to check this out and possibly repair it. Problem is that I cannot remove the fan. The picture in the book looks nothing like my truck. The manual says I need a 36mm fan wrench, but I do not see where I am supposed to use it, the nut on my truck is an inch and a half wide, not thin like the fan wrench. So how do I remove the fan?
have the same problem?
