SOURCE: leaking antifreeze
A quick check you can do to help your troubleshooting is to remove the radiator cap then start the vehicle. (Ensure radiator filled so you can see fluid level). Watch the fluid inside the radiator. Initially after you start the vehicle you will get some small air bubbles but they should go away in less then a minute. If after a couple minutes you have bubbles continually coming up or it starts bubbling out of radiator then you can bet on the Head gasket. If you do not get the bubbles it dosen't rule out either one but if they are there as described then you can look at the head gasket.

He must have meant the intake manifold gasket. That is a complex job, but can be done if you have basic knowledge of mechanics and a few hand tools. Best advice is to get a haynes repair manual from an auto parts store as it will have step by step instructions and photos. Good luck. Dont forget to rate.

it could but- check passenger side front where heater core line go into manifold right behind alternator the hose line is connected by a press clip into an alloy fitting this fitting gets eaten away by anti freeze and hose angle pulls back on fitting the part is $18 at dealer and is screwed into manifold use caution if ur r going to replace at very edge of aluminum manifold---and check ur water pump bolts the 2 longer ones should have a lock sealant on them they bolt in thru a water jacket

probably not. put aluminum seal in the cooling system and top off antifreeze. you may need a hose or fitting from where you are decribing the leak. if the leak stops with the sealant you are good to go. otherwise take it to a shop and they will tell you. do not tell them you think it is a head gasket.

I see a lot of lower intake gasket leaks on these but usually you get an external leak or you'll find coolant mixed with the oil, not a misfire. Upper plenum is dry on the 3.1 and just bolts onto the top of the lower intake. We usually apply pressure to the cooling system overnight with the spark plug removed from the misfiring cylinder. If there is coolant in the cylinder come morning then you only have to figure out where it is coming from. If the plenum is removed during the test you might be able to see where the coolant is or isn't coming from with a borescope by looking down the intake runner.
