Another place to look for acoolant leak is the coolant
"flange"--that pipe running alongside (underneath) the intake

this pipe can seep coolant; this seepage tends to collect at the
lower edge of the block, but it can be slow enough to never leave any
puddle below the car. On my car, the source of this seepage( i.e.,
visible drips) became obvious only after allowing the engine to
cool down for a few hours.
