Hey guys, i got a 2004 2.7l with a coolant issue. The reservoir was low so i filled it up but it drained low again. I had my wife start the car and when she did I noticed the coolant was bubbling up from under the plenum (i think its called). What could this be?

Heater bypass pipe? Only way to really tell is pull the manifolds off and investigate!

Is that a relatively cheap fix? Also the car was taking longer than usual to heat up for a few weeks before this happened. Could that have anything to do with this coolant leak?

Yes. Air in the coolant will give false readings.

I believe the pile is around $175. Then there is the labor involved with replacing it.
