I bought a 98 Dodge Dakota 5.2 engine. I
replace the engine bracket bolts on the Driver
side because they were leaking water?.. I
know, I put some silicone on the threads and
they were fine... They got loose because I did
not torque them enough and when I screw them
back on and as I tighten them, water started
spilling from under the bell harness? Are
there plugs or something other than the clutch
and bell in there? Or are there some coolant
drain plugs I opened by mistake? Please help
I don't want to bring the transmission down...
Please hurry my self proclaimed car gurus I
call friends are bulling me to do it... Lol
