Leoman I've had oil leak through my center intake bolts; never had coolant come through any of them, but for either case either teflon sealer or permatex #3 tacky thread sealant will work fine (the #3 will only dissolve in alcohol, not glycol). But in my case, I just use plain old teflon tape. That works fine too; just be sure to replace it if you pull the bolt out for some reason.

spinn Intake bolts that go through water passages should get some liquid teflon type sealant/ thread sealer. If no sealant was used prior to the leak, it might not seal. Has the engine heat cycled, and then not rechecked the bolts.
