Q: Water leaking from the intake manifold

asked by on

I have water leaking from underneath the intake manifold.

There is a high failure rate with the plastic intake manifolds on your particular vehicle. Manufacturers have updated the design to one that will not fail. I recommend having a trained technician such as one from YourMechanic replace your failed intake manifold with the new design to ensure proper sealing of the intake manifold to the cylinder heads.
