water leaking from back of motor

when my car is running til the time it cools down im leaking water off the back of the motor. none of my hoses are leaking ac is never running. i can only think its the head gasket or maybe a crack in the block. possibly leaking from the back of the intake manifold gasket or plenum? any ideas?

White 96 Camaro 3.8L V6 5spd. lots of hopes and dreams for this beauty.

pretty sure its your intake gaskets man,, I was replacing a O2 Sensor last year and I noticed the same things, and sure enough the intake gaskets were all pridle and cracked,, check around your upper intake near fuel injector, if theres pooled up coolant/water then yep that's your problem.
