motor mount coolant leak

Drivers side motor mount looks like coolant is leaking out. Have a six inch diameter spot every morning. Bolt right next to the oil filter. I rebuilt this truck but am i in some trouble if its coming out there??? Just take it out and put some thread dop on it? And no the cooler is not leaking it is dry along with the freeze plugs and everywhere else. Put over 1000 miles on and it just started. Thanks guys cheers

Re: motor mount coolant leak

the bolt next to the oil filter or the coolant drain port next to the oil filter?

Re: motor mount coolant leak

There is a freeze plug behind the mount also.

Re: motor mount coolant leak

pull the bolt? see what happens
I do not think engine mount bolts go into the water jacket, but if they do they would require thread sealer
next step would be to try a dye kit logic says it is coming from above or behind
