Default Coolant pooling up

Looks like mine did on the upper intake on my bro'* 99 SLE. Its right in the bolts just like it was on my 03 ssei. I would like opinions as usual and also what and where I can't get all the necessary parts for this. My brother has very little money as he is on college and plays basketball there also, so he can't work much. Any suggestions would be great. We are both going to get rid of dex cool soon. My uncle just bought Peak Golbal Lifetime 50/50 prediluted antifreeze and coolant for all makes and models and it turns out he won't need it so we got 6 gallons of that stuff for free. I would assume that it would be ok for us to use in our cars? Links for the parts would be great along with any pictures to help my dad and brother understand this, since my dad doesn't really trust me when he hears it. Thanks again guys!!!!

Yea I read that a few times already. I guess I just want to know what all parts I will need. I knew what I needed on mine but this engine is different.

Not DEX compatible. You want the MIXES with ANY prestone.

It does say mixes with any color on there along with any make/model. Are you just suggesting prestone? Or do you have to have some form of dex? Maybe you could explain a bit more I am lost.

You don't want DEX.
You don't want DEX-Compatible.

You want Prestone mixes with any color.
