Let me guess you have coolant leaking around the bleeder on the t-stat housing. This is a pretty simple
fix. There are only a 3 or 4 bolts holding the housing
on but you cant get to all of them because the upper
intake is in the way. You can usually get to the hidden bolts if you just loosen all of the upper intake plenum bolts. Remove and replace the housing, dont forget the gasket/o-ring, bolt the upper intake manifold back down and your done. Just fill it up and bleed out all the air.
