A while back I had posted about an antifreeze leak. Turned out to be the
water pump and that was replaced. Now there is another leak and I nor the
mechanic can seem to figure out where it is coming from. The mechanic looked
and said he didn't see any staining near the water pump and the hoses looked
to be okay. I am losing about a gallon every 2 weeks or so. Looks to be
getting progressively faster. Not sure what else to do. I need/want to get
this resolved. This is on a '85 K5 Blazer with a 6.2L diesel. Thanks for any
and all help. Hope to get this resolved soon.
I take it the oil isn't showing the signs of being milky since you have had
it at the mech. check the radiator over and the heater hoses. I know water
in a diesel motor is not a good thing but have you seen more steam from the
exhaust lately or is it still the same ol smoky 6.2?
safely raise the Blazer high enough to get under it, then look at the
drivers side rear of the engine and exhaust. if you see a green dried
deposit or wet deposit, you have a intake manifold gasket set to replace.
with your symptoms, Thats what I would check. I would check some of the
previous posts that spell out in detail how to do this.
yep, It had to be done on mine too at 90000. takes about a day to get it
