Question about 1999 Pontiac Firebird
You might be able to borrow a radiator (engine block) tester from Autozone or Oreillys. You give them a refundable deposit and the tool is yours to use.
This tool will allow you to put pressure into the radiator and anything connected to it will leak. The engine does not have to be running. It sounds like there might be a crack in that part you mentioned. I work mostly on Ford products but you describe a part that could be going to the heater hoses on the passengers side.
Sometimes if you live close to a Salvage yard you can see a part called the intake manifold. Ask to look at one that is off and you might see how it is made. It would probably help you to see the whole engine out of the car.
Since this part is on the top of the engine, you should not have too much to take off to replace the intake manifold if that is cracked. Check any heater hoses going TO the intake for leaks which could be dripping in that area. Good Luck
