    I've seen antifreeze sitting in this corner and after starting it and watching it I see it bubbling.. Can this be true?? Its right below by thermostat. I even wiped up and watched more freeze come out.....:confused: :mad: :confused: :mad: :frown1: :frown1: :mad: :confused:

    Isn't it coming from the gasket between the thermostat manifold and the block? Could just be a leaky gasket, and if that one is easy to change without dismantling anything else than the manifold itself. It could also be one of the bolts of the aforementioned manifold gone loose, because their threaded holes are open inside.

    Is that where the head meets the top of the deck on the block? If so there is likely a water jacket in that area. I'm not terribly familiar with the 6.2, but a bad head gasket could cause that leaking...
