Coolant Leak. 5.7 hemi

Does the intake manifold have any coolant passages in it? Ive got a very odd coolant thats throwing me a curve ball. Ive filled my coolant tank to the rim and ive got a leak thats coming down at the back of the skid plate. Not the front like a water pump or thermostat. Its a slow leak that will leave a small spot on the ground after the jeep sits for an evening. I know that I should hook up a pressure tester but what I have learn about cars is that there are cold leaks and hot leaks. This seems to leak just as much when the jeeps cold. What can leak at the back of the motor like that and leak when the jeep is cold?

Back of a head?
Back of the Intake?
Block plug or water jacket port?
