    2001 tundra v8.. I was driving down the road and noticed steam coming from the rear view mirror. Temp gauge was rising.. pulled over and noticed I’m leaking coolant rapidly, jacked it up and followed the leak up to this bolt where I removed ). Coolant appears to be leaking from here. Can anyone verify this? There was no washer or gasket for the bolt, I drove it 1200 miles no leak until now. I haven’t noticed any hoses leaking or cracks anywhere. The bolt itself doesn’t have anything to do with the coolant. The coolant is just leaking from this location but I can’t track where it’s exactly coming from. Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you
