Automotive Expert
you may need to get a mirror to see better in there , it has to be spraying onto there from something else.

i have used a mirror and dont see any other possibilities! the heater hoses are removed, the i9ntake gasket isnt wet. idk what else to do
Automotive Expert
is the intake cracked in the back ? There is no possible way for water to come out of there

ill take a photo with a mirror!it all looks good!it cant be spraying from anything because im pouring water into the radiator with the vehicle off

Try having someone else pour the water in while you watch it
