Buy you some Bars Radiator and Head Gasket Leak Repair and follow directions on bottle can not % 100 guarantee you that it will work but I had a leak from the same place you described in your question and used this product and its been working for almost two years now. If for some reason it does not work do not add more hoping it will work that is when you can clog up your cooling system. Given your situation I believe its worth a try.
