Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
It is pretty common for the thermostat housing to leak so that is a good place to start, when replacing the thermostat its a good idea to replace both the top gasket for the thermostat and well as the lower housing gasket. I have enclosed the steps in the link below, copy and past the links to your browser to open and view them.
