    Is there any way I can fix this hole? Would that putty that goes hard work at all? Can't remember the name of it IMG_20190831_193330.jpg

    Aluminium JB Weld would probably do it. Alternatively, even just a silicone to suit the sealing it needs to do - ie fuel or air or coolant.

    Best option is to get it repaired by someone with a TIG welder.

    If that’s a coolant line it’s brass or something not steel or aluminium from memory but still jb weld imo of just shove the coolant pipe a bit further up and tighten the clamp over the hole?

    does it matter if the coolant line for the trottle body are actually connected? i wouldnt think aussie winters get cold enough in sydney for the valve to freeze

    Nope. Mine is bypassed to feed the turbo cooling circuit. I think its more to do with regulation of temp rather than changing it if that makes sense

    If the hole is bothering you, then change the throttle body, Their as cheep as.
