Could Be Water Pump Bypass Hose. Not Knowing The Vehicle Or Engine You Have. Suggest You Have A Mechanic, Or Radiator Shop Pressure Test Your Vehicle. That Will Give You More Information.
the alternator is located under the inlet manifold
The alternator is located behind the engine and almost directly below the intake manifold.
Changing an alternator in a northstar requires removing the intake manifold,as it is under there. I would suggest getting a service manual for all the details. Good luck Almost but not quite true. Under the intake manifold is the starter not the alternator!!!
If it is like a 1989 saab 9000, you remove the front passenger wheel, remove all the plastic from the wheel well, and the alternator should be rite there. You can also get to it by removing the manifold, which allows much easier access to the alternator, but then you need a new manifold gasket.
Behind the exhaust manifold, next to the alternator.
You have to remove the intake manifold to take it out the top.
It is located at the front of the intake manifold between the A/C compressor and the alternator
Remove the intake manifold and take it to a welding shop that works with aluminum. Let them determine if it can be saved or not.
It is between the alternator and the AC pump in the intake manifold.
Before removing the alternator and bracket assembly from the engine, loosen the assembly bolt by which the alternator is fixed at the alternator bracket. There is only a small amount of room in which to take out the alternator so you will have to work very carefully with it to prevent damaging nearby components. NOTE: If this is a SOHC engine then remove the alternator through the transaxle side, through the bottom of the intake manifold plenum.
You have to loosen the tension on the belt by loosen the nut normally found on the pulley located by the motorblock, manifold or even by the alternator pulley it's self.
It is mounted underneath a bracket in front of the alternator on the side of the intake manifold.
it's in the back of the engine below the manifold and under the air box tube.
The vents are controlled by vaccuum from the intake manifold. Check for a split rubber vac. hose on the manifold- Hope that helps.
On the low side service port that is located on the a/c compressor manifold.....
big coincidence.there is no reason that replacing an alternator would cause an inlet manifold to leak.unless one of the mounting bolts goes into the manifold,and the mechanic screwed wrong bolt,(a long one),into wrong place and thru the manifold,causing the leak. i know of this problem because it is how i learned,years ago to note which bolts went where
Its located behind the intake manifold between pipes 1 & 2 (from the alternator side). do you have a picture of it
disconnect battery terminals. remove upper radiator hose and manifold on block, debuckle the radiator to allow wiggle. disconnect electrical wiring from alternator. release alternator tension on belt, and remove tensioning device. remove bolt holding alternator to block. twist and wiggle alternator up between abs mess, radiator and motor.
First thing Is There Is No Water In An Altenater. ... But it Does sound Like the Heater Hose Is leaking and it is located Under The Intake Manifold on the 4.6 Engine And It is running Down Front Of moptor The Only Way to Repair This Is to Remove The Intake Manifold.....:)
it is behind the inlet manifold between pipe 1 and 2 (alternator side)
Under th inlet manifold, you will need to remove the alternator to gain access
DO NOT REMOVE WHOLE MANIFOLD UNLESS YOU REALLY HAVE TO, IS IT LEAKING ABOVE THE ALTERNATOR? if so just needs a simple repair plate.
Which motor does it have? If it is the 4.7L V8, it is on the front of the upper intake manifold, behind and off to the left of the alternator.
If the spark plug is cracked and will not turn out on a 2000 Pontiac Montana, a person might have to remove the manifold to get at the plug. Removing the alternator can also help but if the plug is stuck, the manifold will have to come off to get the plug out.
