Default Throttle Body Leaking Colant

I have a 1994 oldsmobile lss with a 3.8 vin L, I was going to clean the iac so i couldn't get to the screws because of the downward location. I went to unbolt the three screws to the throttle body and engine coolant started to poor out of the plenum. I know there was a recall on the 95 series 2, is this the same symptoms? Any help would be much appreciated.

There is a gasket between the TB and the UIM. The coolant goes in to the TB to warm it up. You will need to replace that gasket. If I remember right, it'* about $5 or so. simply remove the 3 nuts, then remove the TB and clean both surfaces. Put it all back together and your done.
