Antifreeze woes

All right here is my latest dilemma. Edelbrock intake, edelbrock heads,new intake gaskets, chrome water neck with o-ring seal. Silicone on intake bolts, teflon tape on the heat sensor. My problem is after I run the car a small pool of antifreeze collects in the front drivers side corner of the intake. I can't tell if it's leaking from the bolt, the heat sensor or the water neck. Any suggestions?

Re: Antifreeze woes

Take out the bolt and reseal it and put it back. Take out the tmep snesor and reseal it and put it back. Take off the water neck, make sure it and the manifold surface are flat, take the o-ring off, grease it with some white grease, put it all back?

sorry, Ima smartass today...

I had a similar problem and pulled my chrome water neck and the was a hairline crack. 10 bucks and it was fixed until the next time.
