I have a similar one on the 85, and yes it was dripping 20 years ago... I was told to smack it with a punch and it would dislodge... nahhhh, did not happened...



I poured some coolant leak repair powder... and yes, the coolant temp was a bit higher, I drove it for about a month, then drained a bit of coolant, may be a few quarts... temp was still a bit high and drained another few quarts... and the leak never came back...



Of course in 20 years I replaced the water pump, drained the coolant a few times... still leak free
