Hello. Anyone have any advice for next steps in dealing with this leak? It's become more and more steady (added a gallon of coolant in past few weeks) so I can't ignore it anymore.

I thought I was dealing with a water pump seal but after degreasing the engine, it is clearly dripping onto the block or manifold just behind and below the power steering pump. A little above and behind the inlet for the lower radiator hose.

The pink fluid pooling is easiest to see on the second pic

Oil cooler?

I cannot say first hand but some of the folks on here have said coolant goes through there. Oil cooler so I’m guessing yes.

That's a 3.8 so I would guess lower intake gaskets leaking coolant.

Yes, it's a 3.8L. Best I can tell without removing the P/S pump is the leak is above the intake. I first thought that it might be squirting upwards but after cleaning/drying everything, I could see the first few drops of coolant on the flat surface on the block in the photo which has me thinking it is somewhere just above this.
