the leak is coming from where it connects to the engine, not a hose(replaced hoses and upgraded radiator in '07).
I'm just looking for a name for this part, and perhaps how serious this issue is. I'm still letting my rtv cure so I haven't started the car up yet to see if I start puffin white smoke out of my exhaust. Should I refrain from testing out my new valve cover gasket until I resolve this slight leak?
I have discovered this is my "Water outlet gasket". Does this indicate water pump failure, or did I perhaps crack the very old gasket by hammering and prying on the valve cover? My newer question in a nutshell is this: How do I know if anything more than a replacement gasket is the culprit?
have the same problem?
