I have a '95 STS and noticed the metal coolant pipes that go from one side of the motor to the other were really rusted. They go along the back of the motor, between the motor and firewall, just above the rear exhaust manifold.
It was leaking since my car is a northern one, and the years of snow/salt eventually took their toll on them. They leak bad enough that I stopped driving it until now. I'd lilke to fix it up, but I am hoping one or some of you can help give me some suggestions or advice. The dealer wants $1000 in labor to change 2 $20 metal pipes, saying there is over 8 hrs. labor to do it.
I looked under it this weekend and I feel like I should be able to put another straight metal pipe in place and use rubber hose on the ends where they bend. I just don't have much room to see or work properly when the car is on the ground (no lift).
Thanks in advance, any suggestions or comments would be appreciated!!!
