I have a water leak. the hoses all seem good as does the "weep hole" on the water pump. The oil and trans fluid look normal and the car runs fine. The only thing I see is below the alternator...

Not all water pumps leak from the weep hole, if the water pump casket becomes worn then it will leak from behind the water pump. You can also have a leak coming from the thermastat housing. To find out exactly have a pressure test performed on your car.

I have 2007 MALIBU SS I'm losing antifreeze somewhere could it be an intake casket

yes it could be if its a 3.1 or bigger. check to see if oil is getting in coolant tank, check very close at the intake gasket also the head gasket for leaks. and check bottom of water pump when running. if they fail it will drip from bottom at relief hole. my 3.1 had the sam problem and i replaced the intake gasket. and it has been fine now for about 2 years. just check it out.

Trying to put thermostate in casket wont fit

You need to put the edge of the thermostat into the slot in the gasket. There will be a "cut" on the inside edge of the gasket and you have to thread it on before you put it in the car.

My Chevy Malibu 1997 has a major problem with leaking in the coolant system. The coolant light comes on and stays on. We put prestone in the recovery system until its filled. The coolant light continue...

I'm guessing that the mechanic fixed a coolant leak around the gasket on the upper air plenum. The gasket leak was probably caused by Dexcool antifreeze deteriorating the gasket material. If that is the case, then the lower intake gasket is probably leaking too. If the mechanic refilled the cooling sysytem with DExcool antifreeze, then it probably destroyed the sealant he used to make the initial repair. I would have the car towed back to the mechanic to avoid any further damage from overheating. Have the mechanic remove the lower intake and check the gasket for leaks. DO NOT refill the cooling system with Dexcool. Use a compatible antifreeze that will work with aluminum engine parts.

Water leak, trying to figure out if it is head or intake manifold casket. There is a flat ridge under the intake manifold and it has antifreeze on it and it is above the head casket, I was thinking this...

Without checking the head with a pressure test anything is possible. do a compression check on the cylinders and see if you have high compression on a cylinder. If the head is cracked it will let water into the cylinder and cause high pressure. This is still true with a broken intake manifold gasket as well though depending where it is broken. It is possible that what you are seeing is blow back from the radiator over flow. You don't see any leaks when your stationary but if you drive it and then stop and check it you see the fluid. This could be a result of blow back from a loose radiator cap or bad over flow hose.

This is just a patch to get you home. Fix the car and the problem that made it run hot to cause this gasket to leak. See a funeral home about any casket problems.
