At the top, bottom or middle of the block? Has it over heated lately? The more information about it the better we can help.


Top yesterday


Is it possible that a gasket has sprung a leak?


Can you see where the leak is coming from? If you cannot, get a radiator test pump and pump it up to about 15 lbs, no more. With the engine cool you may be able to reach behind and feel where the water is coming from.


I'm having somewhat of the same issue, I have an antifreeze leak at the top rear of my intake manifold and as I was getting the manifold off to replace the gaskets I found caramel looking fluids in my hoses which means I got anti freeze and oil mixed and I was wondering if any one else has had this problem and how you fixed it


It's towards the back and you need to get the intake manifold off and replace the gaskets better to do all and make sure you're antifreeze isn't brownish
