Question about 1998 Ford Mustang
While I had the front end on a ramp to change the oil, I noticed coolant leaking. Alot of coolant is leaking down between the transmission and oil pan. But I can't tell where the coolant is actually coming from.
I just had the same problem. Ford design the intake manifold with plastic water crossover which cracks. The coolant will leak onto the top of the block and and then down the back of the engine. This intake design is a known defect and was ocvered under by Ford for 7 years past the date of mfg. The crack either is in the crossover or the thermostat housing. I happed on this when I found the same leak and traced it back to the thermostat housing. I changed the thermostat, but it leaked worse. You can pickup a aftermarket for $200 and it's about 4-6 hr job to replace.
