Usually they leak from the oring at the back of the water pump but the water runs in the middle of the V of the block and goes at the back. If you've got the manifolf off you should be able to locate the middle pipe and see if it's corroded or leaking. Could be as well the frost plugs at the back of the heads??
I think you should be not too far away from seeing the leak if you've already got your manifold out. Good luck.

Antifreeze leak on top passenger side of engine block

Very likely a bad head gasket. Be sure to get it checked and fixed. If your engine over heats or if the gasket is also leaking into the cylinders then you could cause serious damage to your engine.

I have a 98 mitsubishi montero sport that has a small oil leak. i need to know how to fix it

It all depends where it is leaking. You may have a bad seal. If so, you will have to take off the block to get to your valves. Like I said, it just depends where the oil comes from. Make sure all your bolts are tight. They loose up after time.
