If you need to remove the intake and throttle body,to remove and replace that cooling line, this link showspics, directions, tools needed, and all that, and you will need new gaskets, etc. to reinstall. Hope it helps get you there.

Bingo. It was a pinhole near the bend. Sanded and applied some JB Weld. That stuff has saved me countless $$$.
