Hey Guys,

Got a problem, Cars been running hot (210-220), noticed it went in today flushed out the system, put a new thermostat and gasket in, and I noticed there was a pool of water bubbling -- so i cleaned it out and hear enough -- it's back.

I think it's a Manifold gasket? but I am not sure. Small video below and help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Brandon

Its hard to see from that video, but are you sure that puddle wasn't caused when you removed the thermostat? Does it refill itself if you dry it? also the bolt for the SC looks wet.

You should check out the elbows that connect at the intake, they crack or leak at the orings, and could pool up looking like a manifold gasket leak.

Could be t-stat housing or hose, but 210-220 is normal. Maybe not where you want it, but still normal.
