Alright I've been noticing a puddle of coolant underneath my car everywhere I go. Just happened recently. Its leaking right under the heater core hoses in the back of the block. The #4 cylinder is collecting water and I don't know exactly where it's coming from. The hoses are dry with no leading cause yet. I haven't gone under my car as of yet but just trying to trouble shoot before I do. The intake is a oem replacement from about 20k ago. So new gaskets were installed. Any help would be amazing! Thanks! And I must say it's external I hope, No coolant out the tailpipes, No overheating, and No misses

Which replacement intake is it? Have you replaced the heater hoses?

Yes all the hoses are brand new, And the intake is a Dorman with aluminum crossover.

If its the Dorman i wouldn't trust it, Get a FRPP pi replacement off of summit racing. They are like 189 bucks and then do the coolant tube swap its a good bang for the buck mod for the NPI cars. My stock intake cracked and i had similar issues. If you look with a flashlight underneath the intake through that gap next to the water pump and see coolant. Its most likely the intake being cracked.

Yeah, Dorman intake manifolds, in my experience, are the biggest pieces of crap anyone can install on their motor. Definitely get a Ford PI intake manifold and do the swap.
