I drained the coolant and everything was dry when I pulled the bolt. I am doing as you said. I now have to intake manifold back on made sure everything was clean and dry now waiting until tomorrow to fill up the coolant.
I believe in your comments and would like to stay optimistic.
I believe the threads are fine because I was able to plug the hole and stop the leak with the bolt. Yes I agree now that the head is cracked, and replacing it would be the best option. But I am trying out a temporary fix because I lack experience, time, and resources. It would be cheaper for me to buy a parts car rather then finding a head(This is the price of living in hawaii). I really do like your suggestion of removing the coolant crossover to examine the damage. I think that is spot on in my situation.
Thank you everyone for your time and knowledge. I am surprised on how quick you guys are at caddyinfo! I am on Hawaii time so sorry for the delay.
I think I have found the air leak causing the high idle which was the reason for taking things apart, see picture of intake manifold gasket.
Hopefully everything works out and I will be back with good news.
