well hell............stopped leaking ??????
as per my earlier post my radiator had started leaking towards the latter part of last week. Thought that I had isolated it to the driver side of the radiator about midway up. decided that I was going to go and get the proper antifreeze in premixing keep it with me for the next few days. I had a couple jobs I need to complete and couldn't do without the truck until later on this week. fill the coolant reservoir up to the cold fill line yesterday. began noticing yesterday afternoon and this morning and every time I stop it just seemed to really be pouring antifreeze out of that side of the radiator. this afternoon got back to the shop and stop the short for last time and noticed no antifreeze leaking out. open the hood and noticed that the reservoir was back down for the level that it was yesterday when it was just leaking a little. that level is where the same in the reservoir is about midway up. there is a line that comes out of the reservoir and goes across the top of the radiator shroud to the other side of the radiator. there seem to be a little coolant in the area where this line wise but no obvious place that is leaking out. it also seems that once the reservoir got below that level that this line attaches at that the leaking stopped. anybody got any thoughts ideas or input on this?
please excuse the cryptic typing. Siri is doing my typing again for me.
