Hey all -

Took the '84 for a drive today, and when I pulled in to get gas, noted that it was slowly dripping coolant from the mid-to-rear part of the engine on the driver's side. Got the car home and put it up on a jack. Looks like the source is a small hose whose bottom end is just above the starter...can't even see where the top end is...looks like a real bitch to replace because I can hardly get my hand up in there to start with.

Looked in the TSRM under cooling system...not even mentioned. Anyone know (1) which hose it is (2) where it is in the TSRM, and (3) the easiest way to replace it?!?!?

It's a 5M-GE by the way...thanks.

Seamus: Looks like I'm going to have to pull the starter to have any chance of finding the other end and getting it off without losing a couple of fingers.

I've got a pile of things to do over the next two weeks...probably will spend the third weekend doing Supra work:

'84:
Replace this damn hose
Replace wiper motor (already have it, just have to install it; the old one seized up)
Fix parking brake (already adjusted out to the max on the handle)

'85:
Install LJM strut bar
Install Chimp intake pipe
Install cat-back system

The '85 is going to be a LOT easier.

:(

Seamus: Took another look before putting the car to bed for the night. It LOOKS like the top end of that hose attaches somewhere up near the rear of the intake plenum. Again, looks like a royal PITA to get at. The starter will definitely have to come off...have done that job before - only difficulty is the upper bolt (getting to it).

Thanks...Bob
