I'm not sure why it prompted you to have to pay more we're just mechanics we work from our shops and on our own cell phones and stuff I don't know if the system defaulted to ask you if you wanted a phone call for this problem or what but it's not necessary.I'm passenger side of the cylinder head there's a coolant flange right below the valve cover.What happens is that the valve cover leaks oil on to it and eats the seal and then the flange fails, it's also plastic and warps.You just need to get a new coolant flange and temp sensor seal and clip I would probably also just replace the temp sensor.If I've answered your question your satisfaction please remember to hit accept otherwise the site just keeps your deposit and I don't get compensated at all.If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask you'll be able to ask them even after hitting accept.Again I'm sorry you're angry about the site but please don't take it out on us we're not even employees we don't sit in a call center were using apps on our phones and tablets and computers doing this at our spare time trying to help save people money.
