    Re: coolant leaking

    You probably have failed crossover gaskets if coolant has made it to the EGR tube. The upper x-over gaskets have an EGR passage(yellow X) that is open but dead heads at the head. From what I see it serves no purpose other than for machining the crossover passage & creates another potential leak point.

    Re: coolant leaking

    I wouldn't rule out a WP cover leak or thermostat housing leak.

    But if you know coolant is coming from inside the tube this seems the likely source. This could be a give a false diagnosis of a failed head gasket or it could be a headgasket that would cause this. Coolant would have to be going out the ex pipes when the EGR cycles.

    You must have coolant disappearing.

    I have never heard of coolant in the EGR passage happening to anyone here but the gaskets could surely be the cause.

    Re: coolant leaking

    I have a 99 Deville De Elegance and have the same issue, seeing coolant on the dark grey panel, here:

    It drips from just behind this panel.

    I believe its a hose but cant locate it!! Help.
