Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I'm unable to post material directly from the service information due to copyright but can help as necessary.

It appears you haven't actually located the source of the leak? Before jumping to replacing parts you'd need to know the actual source of the leak.

Are you able to upload a picture of the area where it is leaking?

I found the source after administering a pressure test, then I removed removed the ps pump reservoir mounting bolts to move it out the way, then removed the radiator fan asseembly, then the exhaust manifold , gave me access to the water inlet housing upon removal the gasket crumbled, installed dorman part #(###) ###-####which is the new metal housing and new gasket, put it all back together bled the system, ran up to temperature and checked for leaks, van is leak free now. Thank u for your reply.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
