    Hey guys I've got coolant pooling around the intake bolt between the 1 and 3 intake runners. Does this bolt go through a water jacket? Any ideas what may cause this.

    Edit it's pooling between the water passage and intake port 1. No sign of it running down from anywhere.

    Maybe the water inlet/ thermostat housing

    That was my initial thought as well but I don't see it running from anywhere. I might have to source one and try replacing.

    More then likely, it is the coolant temp sensor.

    I'm going to regoop all the sensors and see what happens. If that doesn't solve it I'll be in the market for a thermostat housing.
