for the last 2 weeks i have had to add fluid about every 3 days. ive checked everywere and can figure out were it is leaking from. i looked everywere. i dont think it is a head gasket. i have noticed that there is some fluid right under the hose going from the intake manifold to the raidator. i checked the hose it isnt leaking. Anybody have any ideas.

Side tank on the radiator. Leaky resivior tank. I'd take a look for traces of burned off coolant (a white-ish yellow residue). That may lead you to a leak. Pinholes are hard to find sometimes.

Could be the seal, mine leaks pretty bad (until the engine heats up) when it is cold out. Come spring the leak will be gone until winter. Hopefully, I will replace it this year. It has been like this for 2 years, just add some anti-freeze/water about once a month in the winter.

If you have fluid by the manifold where the hose goes to the radiator it sounds like your plastic intake cracked by the thermostat housing (very common)
