leaking coolant...


my 2002 mustang gt is leaking coolant by the intake manifold, right bellow the thermostat connector. i went to the ford dealer to buy a gasket and they said that it all comes in a piece with the manifold. my intake manifold is not broken and the car has never overheated, does any body knows if they sell gaskets for the intake manifold, specially for the connector where the thermostat goes?

I think it's a tapered fit with no gasket if i remember correctly. Does your manifold have the aluminum crossover?

I went through this last month. Had the same leak you are talking about. Went to my local Ford dealer and all the part stores in town, and you cant buy that gasket. You are going to have to get a new intake manifold.

^ new intake manifold or some black rtv. New intake manifold is the better way to go though.

So there is a gasket between the head and the intake manifold and then another one between a metal plate and the top of the intake?
