I have recently started to get a slight smell of coolant. At first it was only when I was wheeling. I would have a little spill out of the reservoir. Never payed to much attention. Now that I haven't wheeled for a while I smell it again. So the search began. I found a small leak at the pump easy 20 minute fix.

Still have the smell. I pressurized the system and could not find anything. I drove the Jeep about 150+-miles and started looking again. I found what I was looking for. GD intake manifold gasket. Looks Like I will be taking the intake off this weekend or next. Depending on if I get the gasket set in or not.

I will post pics of the problem area and the teardown and rebuild if anyone is interested. Looks to be pretty straight forward and easy.

Intake has coolant going through it?...I never looked for it, but most newer/plastic intakes I've dealt with don't deal with the cooling system.

Curious to see where it's leaking from the intake.
