It is strange. Yes, I do need help. I’m so clueless I really don’t know what to take off, but I think too of my over heating problem I think it was my thermostat. I also, see the leak and it’s coming from the top part of the manifold area on the side.

It could be a small leak around the coolant temp sensor, possibly the steel connector where the heater hose attaches to the manifold. Your lower intake manifold looks to have some corrosion on its surface so check around that temp sensor on the front (little brass sensor above the thermostat housing) and the metal tube pressed into the manifold next to it.

Thank you a lot for your help! I always appreciate people of helping me.
