I've been having a similar problem. Since I bought it you could smell the coolant after a long drive and this summer it actually started over heating. Its leaked coolant twice and when it did it was ALOT. This has only happened after not letting it warm up properly.
As far it looks, I think its the the lower intake plenum gasket on the passenger side. Not sure if that helps you but there you go.
Mine's getting replaced this weekend, so hopefully it works out.
the L / ? shaped hose to throttle body I did i swore that was the problem because it was wet but i cleaned the surfaces of the pipes it goes on and replaced now its dry but i still get the smell.
the 2 hoses on back of intake are also new ive replaced basically all hoses radiator and water pump.
@porsche did you resolve your leak in that picture ? problem is I dont see coolant anywhere I just smell it.
when i had the intake manifold off i saw old crust like coolant all along the gasket area where head meets block all along the whole length of the block but didnt look to be running down and nothing was wet but truck sat all nite too.
Im going to get the analyzer and also some die this way when i rip it apart I can put the light on it and see.
the bolts for the intake having crusty coolant on the is still puzzling me because i know the bolts themselves couldnt hold water so im nmot sure if somethings broke/cracked in the head or it just leaked down the bolt holes from somewhere else.
I guess if nothing more when i pull it back apart this weekend il have to take some pics of what imtalking about because i know it sounds confusing.
@xbetty thats about where i think mines leaking its hard to tell for sure though if its the manifold or head goodluck with yours definately post up on whats found im doing the work myself so not so bad but if your paying maybe throw some die in so once they get it all apart they cant put a light on to see its that intake gasket for sure.
