Water leak top of motor 2004 ford explorer

(2004 Ford Explorer)
Ive just changed the thermostat thinking issue solved. Its not. When the truck begins to overheat (mostly from idling) I pulled over and popped the hood and it wasnt coming from the thermostat or the housing. Steam was flowing out from the two bolts behind those. Looks like a big plastic housing with 2 star wrenches needed to take off. Same part that says 4.0L. SOHC..Please help. I have pictures.
How long have you had this problem? Few weeks now.

This is going to require *hands-on* inspection - sorry but it isn’t possible to determine exactly where the leak is here online.. The leak source must be ‘pinpointed’ before attempting repair.

Cooling system pressure testing is invaluable.

That part with engine size on it is the upper intake manifold plenum - that part isn’t leaking engine coolant..

Can’t post images on this site - unfortunately.

Good luck!
