Coolant leak...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. 05 lgt.


I have a small coolant leak under the hood somewhere. It ends up on the exhaust making awesome coolant smells enter the car from time to time. No visible leaks or puddles. I remember reading something about a small leak near the turbo maybe? A hose clamp if I recall? Just hoping for some advice on hunting this pain in the ass leak down! Thanks for the time and space!

Remove that useless engine cover, then look around the turbo. You should see the rubber hose leaking that feeds the turbo.


FWIW, both my cars have the engine cover removed.

305,600miles 5/2012 ej257 short block, 8/2011 installed VF52 turbo, @20.8psi, 280whp, 300ftlbs. (SOLD).  CHECK your oil, these cars use it.
