When I had gotten to work I noticed a leak after about 2 hours of being parked. I could just see the coolant beading up under the front drivers side, it wasn't a solid drip. But after that it hasn't leaked anymore from what i've seen. Maybe, hopefully, it was over-filled.
So how would you all go about this problem? I would clearly love the cheapest way out since I replaced the water pump assembly, upper radiator hose, power steering pump, and serpertine belt since January.
So this degas bottle is simply another name for the coolant reservoir?? Thats what i'm seeing when i've searched online. If thats the case couldnt I remove it and look for cracks? Or maybe it was over-filled?
So I went to O' Reilly's to get some belt dressing to fix this annoying chirp. The worker there was looking at my belt while I was spraying the dressing on and he said it looks like I have a bent power steering pulley from the belt movement in that certain area. I just had my power steering...
I can see one part of the belt "shaking" just from the cramped view looking under the hood. Im guessing this is the cause of the chirp/squeal. Ive heard that belt dressing is a "band-aid" but what am I looking to replace in the long run?
Finally got a local mechanic to put the new hose on. Got it home and everything is fine, but now im getting a horrible squeak that sounds like its coming from the belt because it the chirp/squeak gets faster with acceleration. any ideas?
So im trying to replace the power steering pressure hose on my 2004 v8 LS that is leaking and it just recently started even spraying on the belt beside the pump causing the worst squealing noise ever. Ive disconnecting the hose on the rack side but cannot disconnect the hose from the pump side...
