Same leak for me too. As far as tools? Basic hand tools. My guess is it will take me about an hour or so to fix and cost around $20 - $30. No biggie.

Does anyone know if you can replace the fitting with the newer design using the metal hold down plate and bolt? I'm sure the coolant line would need replacing also?
