THERMOSTAT

Engine Cooling problem

I replaced my bad thermostat and I am having a slow leak of anti freeze. I replaced the gasket twice and tightened the housing. It does not appear to be leaking from the housing, but that is all that I touched during replacement, any thoughts?

Is it leaking between housing and intake? If yes then housing mate surface maybe warped. Remove and put straight edge on it. If comming around bolts coat threads with No. 2 permetex or similar.
