2010 hyundai santa fe v6 3.5L leaking antifreeze

Asked by Mar 28, 2016 at 02:17 AM about the 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Had to replace oil pressure switch. Since i had surge take unbolted, I
changed the spark plugs. To change the back 3 spark plugs that are under
surge tank, I lifted up passenger side of surge tank to get at plugs and
coolant leaked out and I didn't think much of it. After I put it all back
together, it's leaking antifreeze when running. What did I do when I tilted
the surge tank up? and what do i have to do to fix it? What does the surge
tank do and how does it work? Any help is appreciated.

What you did was remove the intake plenum. You'll need to remove the entire thing, clean both surfaces, and replace the gasket.

I appreciate the response. Turns out I cracked a hose nipple at the back of thermostat housing assembly when i lifted the surge tank/intake plenum on left side to get to back spark plugs. Thought I was going to have to replace both halves of thermostat housing assembly but only needed the hose nipple which was in very tightly so I didn't realize at first that it would come out.
