Default Losing Coolant

This is on the driver side of the engine where the temp sensor is..


I have a leak as you can tell by the pic below , where does this leak appear to be coming from to you? Cracked head?

There is no water in the engine oil
It leaks coolant /water out in less than a week here



Thanks in advance...

P.S. This piece of crap has 53k miles on it

That entire case piece where the coolant temp sensor is screwed in is removable ... it may be leaking from there. I would clean up the entire area and check it daily to see where the coolant starts to seep from. You may be able to get away with just removing that piece and using some RTV to re-seal it.

From what I remember the EGR valve does not have any coolant flowing through it. I was referring to that aluminum piece where the coolant temp sensor is actually threaded into - it has coolant passages.

Yes, it mounts flush against the block and has a gasket on it
