    Default Intake manifold coolant leaks?

    I was driving my 85 GM home last night and I blew out some coolant, and when I popped the hood the only place I could see a leak looked like it was coming out from under the intake manifold. Is this possible or just spraying from somewhere else and couldn't see where from with a flashlight?

    Sure it is not coming from the bypass hose or top radiator hose and traveling there?

    Better idea. While running it should give you an answer.

    Cool! If that is your only issue, an easy and relatively cheap fix!!

    Went ahead and replaced both rad hoses so that all the coolant hoses are brand new, those were the last 2 I hadn't replaced
