not familiar w/ the 3.4...but it certainly could be the intake manifold. I don't think there's any freeze plugs up there.

Define water leak? What kind of water, is this just water or is it coolant? Does it increase in volume when the car is running?
Cheers

what exactly do you want us to say? Internet diagnostics isn't as good as you looking for the problem.

could be your intake manifold...now I've said it 3 times.

Problably intake manifold gasket. Or bad manifold. Since it is running down on the flywheel probably not a head gasket.
