Default newbie with a aztec leaking coolant

Hi im new to the forum world . I have a problem with my aztec. I have coolant leaking from the back of the block comin from under the head from what i can see. I have done the intake gaskets last year and the water pump last week . Its has a small leak after you shut it off. Im guessing its the head gasket but hoping not. It never over heated and nothing is in the oil. 108xxx miles

Thanks for having me be part of the forum . Yeah its kinda hard to get a pic where its is unless i use my buddys lift . Its seeping from the rear passenger side of the block right in the corner. I heard there are 3 different size bolts and maybe the shop that did the intake gaskets put the wrong bolts in different spots . Im not sure but its a guess . Im just hoping its not the heads gaskets . Hopefully i can get a solution because i want to have it repaired before it gets worse.

Does that engine have coolant elbows like on the 3800?

No elbows but Im thinking its a timing cover because its over the head and could be seeping but i guess if its the gaskets its going to someone else lol.
