You'll be surprised, but you also need:
-valley pan 99.9% leaking from the rear of the engine (I found small leak on my car)
- rear passage cover (not sure if mine has it, bc valley pan could cause that leak to.
- coolant pipe seals (most likely you can see wheep hole leak but not always)
Replacing a heater core is a real PITA!
Yes unfortunately I only have the cooling system that isn't built into the engine/heater core.. what do you mean you aren't sure if your car has a rear passage cover? Don't they all? I am wondering if this issue could be the starts of the coolant pipe/valley pan? I will have my water pump out tomorrow, I will look around and see what I can find.. which reminds me, SFBay, I know TIS said the harmonic balancer has to come off for the water pump but I am reading people are doing it without removing.. what did you do? Thanks!
