95 Ford Ranger 4.0L OHV

Hi,
I don't know if I am doing this right but I have a 1995 Ford Ranger 4.0L OHV with just a little over 200,000 miles on it.

I have been losing anti-freeze from it for a while but I haven't had the time or the money to fix it till now. I love this little truck and don't wanna get ride of it. It looks like the anti-freeze it coming from the thermostat. Is there a housing that I replace on it or is it just the thermostat, the gasket, and the pipe thing going to it?

Also it looks like it is leaking from the intake gasket or the head gasket. Not sure which one it is. I don't think its the head because I haven't lost power. Its on the driver side of the truck. Or maybe is somehow the anti-freeze that is leaking from the thermostat dripping over by the head maybe. I don't know if thats even possible. Help!

I had a similar issue with my 95 Ranger, it was leaking drip by drip out of the little lever that is normally connected to a vacuum line on the left side (when looking under the hood). My original thread from years ago is below, but what I ended up doing is going to an auto parts store (if it's the same part) and got one, kept the receipt and if it started again I was usually able to take it back.. it's only a few bucks, but the truck was totaled in an accident (not involving me) before I had a chance to check the system's pressure to see if that was the cause of it..
