Default Coolant Leak back of engine, HELP

Big problems, As some of you might know i got my car tuned in NC, drove fine, drove 14 hours home, got to CT and the car was overheating, pulled over, noticed oil everywhere on throttle body, it was pissing out of the valve cover hole, then i noticed coolant leaking out from the back of the block.

What could it be? heater hoses are fine, my guess is intake manifold gasket, (even though just replaced it, or the water pump.

ahh help, how do i get the bottom bolts off the intake manfold gasket?

My guess is head gasket blew.

Run a leakdown test on it and see what it tells you. That will pinpoint if the HG is leaking. D17s don't run coolant channels near the IM like the 16s do so pulling the IM isn't going to tell you much.

LOL - that's my picture.

Yes there is an o-ring on the pipe that goes in the water pump. Its possible it blew, but unlikely unless it was pinched when removed and re-inserted.

You should probably get a new casting that hasn't had so much skimmed off it then.

Try to actually find out what is wrong before deciding on the fix.

Look at spark plugs.

Do compression and/or leak down tests.

Remove valve cover and look for emulsified oil.

Pressure test the cooling system then check for water in the cylinders.

Pressure test the cooling system and check for water leaks from all hoses and connections and radiator, water pump and cabin heater.

****SOLVED****

Could not find the leak unless it was driving and stop it would leak, by time i jacked up car i couldn't see where it was leaking from, i had someone gas it alot and found it!
stupid hose that goes from heater core to under the intake manifold to the left was dripping out somehow, i cut the hose put it back on and all fixed.

Thanks!

The hoses seem to crush with age, then when moved, the spring loaded clamp is not strong enough to seal in a slightly different position. Cutting the crushed bit off fixes it IF the hose is long enough.
