I seem to have a leak between the water pump and the block, not coming from the pump. I've read before some concerns that the orange coolant is eating gaskets, like intake gaskets. Has there been any problems like this with the 02 trucks? Mine has the 4.8 v8.
I will be repairing the Pump gaskets in a week, going to replace the coolant also. My question is, are there any other gaskets that it would be wise to change while the coolant is drained to prevent further leaks? We plan on keeping this truck for another 6 years, so I'd like to get it right, Pete.
Also, anyone know torque specs for pump to block bolts? thanks!
