Question coolant leaking from intake manifold #@%*!

My new to me Samurai runs a bit on the hot side so I put in a new thermostat (there wasn't one in the housing I discovered). No change noted in temp. Today I noticed a coolant leak but it's coming from under the intake manifold from what looks to be a weep hole. Is this a safety of some sort? Is my Sammy trying to tell me what the problem is ? I don't speak Samurai yet so if any of you good folks could enlightened me I'd be much obliged. Here's to hoping for an inexpensive fix.


Cheers,

P566

The only weep hole is the one on the water pump shaft housing right behind the pulley. If it is leaking water there, then I see a new water pump in your future. Any other place would be a hose or a gasket.

your fan clutch is slipping too much cause it to run too hot.. you can rapack it with silicone or replace it for alot more.

Get a mirror and try to find where the leak is - the intake manifold has coolant passages in it, the problem could be as simple as a leaking gasket. I believe there's also a metal pipe under there - coming out of the back of the water pump - those are known to rust through, and the O ring seal at the pump can also leak.

there is a small coolant hose almost derectly below the thermostat on the intake manifold feel underneth the front side of the intake and you should be able to find it. It is a short hose and easy to forget about but can leak all the same.

Aha! It was a leak in the upper radiator hose that trickled from the crack in the underside of the hose under the thermostat housing then under the intake manifold. Thanks for your help; I've learned so much; I'm so please this was a inexpensive fix.
