By chance, did you use sealant when you put the new gasket on? If not, there is your problem.

What if your 1992 Chevy silverado is leaking engine coolant from the top of the engine just below the distrubutor what is leaking?

There is a heater hose that goes to the left rear top side of the intake manifold and that fitting leaks engine coolant sometimes and it will run down the back of the intake around the distributor. If that fitting is not leaking then the intake manifold gasket is leaking coolant in the corners of it. REplace the intake gasket. That's all that can leak coolant on that year engine. If coolant is leaking out between the transmission and engine block then you have a freeze plug leaking in the back of the engine, between the transmission and block. Must remove the transmission and flywheel to fix it.

99 Chevy Silverado Coolant leaking into the oil?

That is a common problem with the vortec 350 engines. The intake manifold gasket starts leaking in the corners of it. That is where the water jackets are and it's only about 1/4 of an inch wide and when it starts leaking it allows engine coolant to leak into the lifter gallery and into the oil. Need to replace intake gasket as long as you no it did not freeze and crack the engine block.

Why would antifreeze leak from intake?

I had that happen once. That's a bad thing. That's either cracked head, blown head gasket, or cracked block.Not necessarily. The intake on some vehicles, especially late models, the coolant circulates thru the intake manifold. You could have a leaking hose or leaking manifold gasket. You would have other problems like cooant in the oil or oil in the coolant if you had a cracked head/block or a bad head gasket.
