Have cover removed and seal with sealer and new gasket.


I think you meant 5.7L V8? Remove the plastic cover and see if you can pin point the leak. I'm guessing it's leaking from the thermostat housing? If so, just replace with new thermostat and gasket. If you're losing fluid from the reserve jug from a leak, you will have to remove jug and look for a crack in the bottom.

Guru59HR, you may have a bad head gasket. Go to the auto store and purchase a block tester kit. Here is a short video on how to use one.
