Hey man, I just searched the archives and it looks like theres 2 o-rings in the valve housing that shrink over time. The guy sells them for 3 bucks plus shipping and says it takes 25 mins and a beer to fix. Search "water valve" in the archives.

if you can find a local o-ring shop. they are Viton #202. mine started leaking so i picked 4 up for $2. your also going to need a #20 torx socket. and a telescoping magnet cause you WILL drop a bolt.

great writeup Sabre2th! I just did my truck yesterday. Make sure your truck is cool, cuz I tried it a little hot, wasn't fun had to stop!
Yes you might want have a cold one on the side, it's really tight in there. Also check on fuel filter cover rubber gasket/O-ring, mines was on the WRONG WAY, and this was from service from the dealership! Aloha to all you PSD
