Thermostat housing to block seal/water leaking ~ how/tips?

Postby thehangmen » Fri Sep 26, 2008 12:56 pm

Got water leaking out of the thermostat housing joint to the block, (presumably it's that, black plastic top/front of engine?).

Any recommendations on how to seal it up again, it looks like some white silicone type sealant is in there at the moment?
