I know what you are going through. It took me about two years to find the leak on my van.

Okay, here are the possible leak points that are easy overlooked:

1. Coolant hoses to the throttle body. If you replaced them, make sure you add permatex sealant to the hoses and replace clamps with new ones. Don’t remember what permatex product is. But is it NOT GLUE. The correct one hardens but it is never solid.
2. Thermo-element in throttle body. Replace O-ring of thermo-element.
3. Intake manifold gaskets. This one is overlooked all the time and was the last item I had to replace to fix all leak of my van.
4. Radiator drain plug. Replace O-ring in plug.
