    Default Falcon ba gt using coolant ?????????????

    Hey guys , ive recently purchased a 05 ba gt . Its using a little coolant and i can smell it when i step out after driving it . after a little investigating with a torch it appears a bit corrosive , stained in engine valley [ under intake manifold ] could this engine have a cracked manifold ? very dissapointed . rest of car is immaculate . anybody else been down this road or heard of it ?

    Not a biggie, there is a pipe in the valley that would be leaking behind the water pump area. there is an O ring that must be degraded. A bit of work to get to but not expensive once you are there. Just keep the coolant up until you can get it looked at.

    yeah thats what my dealer told me. said its nothing to worry about as i found coolant stains aroud me water pump and fresh fluid. also when they did eventually pressure test the system like i asked they found my radiator tanks were leaking at the joints.
