Default coolant leak back of block

hey guys need some advice from some experienced mopar mechanics.

on my way home today i noticed the temp guage raising, steam coming out.

i let it cool down and then filled the radiator up with water, and could see that a stream of water was coming out of the block, behind the intake manifold.

its a circular hole that can be plugged with my fingertip, and it streams onto the electrical connection next to the dizzy.

is there a plug or something that came out, ive been looking through the fsm, and searching the net, but cant see any part of the cooling system back there.

nick

seems like its on the back of the intake manifold, quarter inch hole.
any kind of sensors that plug in, block off plugs in the manifold.?

Theres not much back there . Maybe a externally cracked intake manifold gasket . If you can feel it , take a mirror and see if you can see where it's coming from .

ya i used a mirror i can see water spilling out of it, definately located at the red dot i put in the picture. i would expect it to leak at the gasket, a hairline crack spraying coolant out, but not a perfect quarter inch hole. i really hate to tear into it, because i know if i do, i want to do full tune up on it, plugs wires,cap, plenum kit, cold air intake to get rid of the crappy stock design, just dont have the money today.

guess my weekends already planned out
