Answers :

Check if there's a leak on freeze plug. have you mechanic perform a pressure check.
And you are sure it is Anti Freeze that is leaking or is it water condensation dripping down from your air conditioning? And yes it could be coming from the backside of the engine on top from the intake manifold or up towards the top of the firewall near the two hoses going into your Heater core.

I purchased a OE Dorman intake to replace the original because the water jacket leaks at the thermostat. I removed the old intake and found the rubber gaskets inbedded on the engine side and the new intake has the rubber gaskets inbedded on it. The rubber gasket pattern and size is a little different on the new intake so. Should I clean up the surface and remove the old gaskets from the engine side and replace the intake or should I clean up the surface of the engine side and keep the old gasket

I have a 1991 Volvo 940 Turbo with about 240K on the engine.The water pump was leaking. I drained the coolant by removing the lower radiator hose. I replaced the old water pump (for the first time) with a Hepu pump, removed old gasket material from block area, cleaned the thermostat housing of calcified corrosion, reconnected all coolant hoses, etc, and filled the reservoir with anti freeze. I started the car to check for leaks. No leaks from hoses. But during the idle process of about ten plu
