I finally replaced the rear manifold. The leak was at the thermal expansion joint of the manifold. Because the two manifolds are fixed to the engine, the pieces will expand and contract with hot and cold temperatures, specially when the engine is operating. The thermal expansion joint is in place to avoid cracking or breaking of any pieces, flanges, studs, etc.

I am not sure how to include pictures in this post. If you are interested, send me a message and I will be happy to send you the pictures.

The van is now 238,532 miles and rolling.
