I've been losing a bit of coolant for awhile (overflow tank would go empty after 300 or so miles. I finally found the right angle to spot it. It had been dripping down the front driverside of the block and I was able to spot it under the intake manifold next to the thermostat gasket. I'm just looking for a second opinion from someone who has seen this before I go ripping into the engine.

There is a little indention where it was pooling up, and I'm wondering what that is exactly. It would leak there, and drip down the side of the engine down to the oil pan where it would drip off.

If not Intake gasket, then what else could it be?

Sorry. You can see the thermostat housing on the left and the coolant temp sensor above the leak.
