My explorer is leaking coolant from the rear passanger head area. Most likely a head gasket but just want to make sure there is nothing else back there that could be leaking. It is not the heater core hose any ideas would help

So i had a chance to start tearing the engine apart. Luckily i saved the exhaust manifold for last which i am glad i did because the head gaskets where not the problem. Turn out to be the lower intake plenum gaskets where the cause. So i guess my advice is if you have a similar leak make sure you rule out the lower intake plenum gasket( by lower intake plenum i mean where the thermostat bolt too) hope this helps since there was plenty of views and no replies.
