Where exactly is the leak coming from, from your engine?

Possible rear freeze plug behind the flywheel. Could be a blown head gasket also.

Do you have an updated intake with aluminum crossover? Not sure if 99+ got them or not. I had to replace mine on the 98. The housing where the thermostat sits cracks on the old plastic ones.

You've changed it before but didn't upgrade it with the aluminum crossover?

Didn't even know you could buy a new one that had a plastic crossover.
