I moved my car last night from my inclined driveway and saw a puddle of coolant on the ground where the motor meets the gearbox. I assumed it was the valley pan leaking, well i took a look with a mirror at the back of the intake and the valley pan is dry. I can see the gear box was a little wet. Where else can i be leaking?
Does the water pump have to come out along with the intake to do the valley pan job? sux cause my water pump and stat are only 1 year old and i dont believe in reusing water pumps once they come out.
