  4. 39 Dodge engine start up

    Just started my engine for the first time since being rebuilt and noticed a little anti freeze leaking from one of the intake manifold bolts I only ran the engine for about 15 seconds then shut it down. What could cause that maybe the stud where it goes in the block is not seating right? I will not start the engine until I hear from someone I am really worried about this. Thanks Gary
