Hey all.... I've got a coolant leak here getting progressively worse. I beleive it is coming from the base of the solid pipe attached to the water pump that feeds the top of the head. My question is...before I pull this apart I would like to know what to expect of the sealing method used. I would assume the base is an Oring sealed by compression and the top is a gasket seal. Correct? Also should I assume there will be coolant in that pipe even though the vehicle has been sitting a while? This seems like a simple fix, unless there is something more serious here I'm not seeing.
