Welcome to the FFO!

How long have you owned this vehicle?
How many miles on the vehicle?
Has the coolant level dropped?

There is a coolant passage in the intake. A crossover. Has been known to leak. Is the intake plastic or aluminum?

Other coolant leak issues occur at the temp sensor and heater hose connections. Those areas should be inspected.

The service cycle of these vehicles when new can be extreme. Changing all fluids and filters would be recommended. To include
Coolant
Transmission
Brake

I had it for over 6 months I think and it鈥檚 just got a 160000 miles and yes coolant did dropped but my first problem was my fan module it was burned a lil so my fan wouldn鈥檛 come on unless I zipped tied it or move it around a lil bit and if my fan didn鈥檛 come on my car would run hot and coolant jug will over flow and it鈥檚 aluminum

160,000 is pretty low mileage for the Police use.

The overheating will put added stress on the cooling system joints and connections.
Do get the fan working correctly.

And fluid changes if not already done as mentioned above would be a smart thing. And I would add replace all of the O2 sensors.
The maintenance on these vehicles when in public service is just minimum based on use, Sometimes not the best for that use.

Very likely a leak from the intake manifold somewhere. (not a cracked head)

Find it and get it repaired. Then bring up the maintenance for the rest of the vehicle. You should be able to get at least double that vehicle life if you keep it well maintained. Back off on the love and it will let you down.
