GSX455

leaking antifreeze and oil, between front case, and block

Recommended Posts

Too good to be true, the truck was running good, not overheating.  Last night, I saw a puddle, maybe an oil leak.   I checked and after running, it is leaking a mixture of oil and antifreeze by the  front case, above the oil pan.  It's lost a quart, it runs fine, but the killer dowel pin is a possibility. 2001 shouldn't have a killer dowel pin?

 

Has anyone heard of this, and is the likely source the water pump?  The engine runs, so the engine seems okay.   Thoughts?

And thanks for the help.

There has been at least one report of a 2002 Dodge Ram with a KDP failure. There used to be a picture of the dealer invoice showing the KDP report for a 2002 Dodge Ram under warranty. So any year is possible to have a KDP problem. Just rare above 2001.

That was Dave Conrads (Fishin2deep4U) Dad.  Used to have a link to the post but don't know where that went now.
