Freelander leaking water please help!!!!

Hi everyone

my dad has a 1999 Freelander and he is having a problem with it leaking water as it only seems to leak when the engine is cold when he is topping the water up but after it has been running a few mins it don't seem to be leaking at all so it is very confusing as the temp gauge is as it suppose to be so we dont no what it could be so if you have had the same problem or could suggest what it could be reply to the thread cheers would really apprecaite it

what model is it......?


im looking at purchasing one so asking questions myself

but your dads problem could be the water pump if its the 1.8 petrol as its the same engine as mgf

when the engine goes cold things contract thus the leak....can you source roughly where its coming from?

see this thread if water is leaking from the same area (again its same engine if petrol 1.8)

http://forums.mg-rover.org/showthread.php?t=383932


if its a diesel or not from same area ignore everything ive just said...just trying to help lol

Sounds like the inlet manifold gasket.

Err, the "injection thingy" is the inlet manifold.

It's gasket is known to perish which results in external coolant leaks and internal leaks into cylinders 1 and 4.

The manifold gasket was changed in production because of it's tendency to leak, the older type gasket was black, the modified type is green.

It's hard to know which type is fitted to yours although I have seen the modified type leaking!

This thread covers the gasket replacement....
