Water Leak - Pass Side

Hi Guys. I have and have had a strange un-locatable water leak for several years now. It is coming from the passenger side of the engine, on the rear/back of the engine. It is actually leaking down onto the starter and then the ground. Strange thing is it only does it when the engine is at just the right temp. I tried pressure testing and nothing.
If you drive the jeep and park it, it will show no leak for 12-18hrs, then after that it leaks for a while. So it must be temperature related. I can see the freeze plugs (atleast some of them) and they are dry. I know the intake is a dry intake. I am thinking maybe a head gasket? I don't want to take the starter out just to inspect but if I did, I am pretty sure I could see something.

Just wondering if any of you guys ever experienced this leak location previously?

Thanks for the help.

Re: Water Leak - Pass Side

A water leak or antifreeze leak? If it's water, the first place I would look is the AC condensation drain.

Antifreeze/Coolant. It is not water. AC Condensate would drain continuously only when the AC is in operation or just shut off. This happens only after the engine has cooled significantly. Very strange occurence. Took it to the dealer years ago and they couldn't find anything. But it is getting worse now.
