    Yeah its been fine for a month or more but I go out the other day after I came out the store and noticed some green under the truck. Sure enough its the same leak as before.

    Its leaking down the front of the motor on the trucks right side. It runs down the axle vent tube then onto the axle itself.... Since I work at a shop back home, I put it in the air over xmas break and had one of the other guys take a peak. He couldnt find anything, checked the waterpump and determined it was fine. Ive pressure tested this thing seems like 10 million times with no success. Its starting to piss me off. I guess Ill get a tester tomm and check it again..Any ideas on what it could be? /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Where is your radiator overflow? Is the rad cap good?

    If it sits awhile sometimes it dries up and you could look for the leftover residue to see where it came from, would leave a witeish trail. There isn't too many places for it to come from , maybe water pump or gaskets, freeze plug etc. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Did you check water pump to block seals on both sides? I have had mine develop leaks there in the past. Also the heater hose that goes to the manifold, at the fitting. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
