Wife has a coolant leak on 2003 Jetta GLI 2.8L 6spd man. Leak appears to be coming from the bottom of the pass. side of the upper intake manifold, is this even possible? The leak seems to be above and forward of the waterpump (judging by the wet parts). I reached under and can feel it wet there and is dripping onto the canister below. It also seems to only be leaking when the car is running. It appears to be from the IMT bearing cap seal. Is there even coolant there? If not, where could this be coming from. The radiator fan is dry on that side also and the belt doesn't seem to have any coolant residue on it. ANy help would be appreciated. Josh
