Water leak near transmission

Not sure where exactly the water is coming from but positive its not the pump nor radiator. we have checked all the hoses and havent seen any leakage there either. it seems as though the water is leaking from the front of the transmission around the little pipe that connects it to the motor. if the jeep isnt running it doesnt leak. but once its started and warms up it is a really steady stream whether it is moving or not. please help it is our only running car and i have to use it for dr.'s appointments for the kids and school and work . thank you very much in advance. heather

    i think i put that in the right spot on here :)

    freeze plugs checked they are fine all 3 of them. and nope the air
    conditioner nor heater are running. example: if i start it and let it idle it
    will leak visabaly but not a steady stream. after the motor starts to
    heat up the stream gets bigger and bigger but no gushing. oh and i
    forgot to mention the water is just water not other fluids in it. not
    to sound stupid but im not sure about which of the hoses are heater and
    radiator but we checked them all. there is a plate covering the face of
    the big end of the transmission and a pipe coming out of it and looks
    as if it is going into the motor. its leaking at the plate and entrance
    of the plate is what it seems like.and i forgot to mention that the reason its pure water is cause we have been working on it and havent put any coolant into it until its fixed.

    If you have coolant leaking from inside the bellhousing (big part of transmission) there are freeze out plugs (welch plugs) at the back of the block which are inside the housing when the engine is attached to the transmission (only way to get to them is to remove transmission and flywheel) They rarely fail but if they did that's causing your coolant loss. Because the plugs are made of thin metal, it's rare that any block sealer will get a grip and seal the leak.

On most engines, there are areas called "freeze plugs". They are along the base of the engine and in some cases, they are located close to the transmission and could be the cause of your antifreeze leak. Have someone get underneath the vehicle and check where the leak could be coming from. It also could be the heater hoses running to the heater core inside your vehicle. Have all the components to your cooling system checked.

    I agree with jmassengill. WATER?????? That's the only logical spot where it could be coming from. Is it leaking from the base of the transmission and running from a spot higher up?? Make sure for certain your A/C compressor is NOT running when you check for the leak again. If it is running, condensation from the evaporator could be your problem, which is normal. I'll second guess myself and say that if your compressor (A/C) is running while the heat is on, this in fact is not normal. Unless your climate control is in defrost mode (winshield). Most vehicles or should I say a good portion of them run A/C to eliminate humidity from the winshield, even in the wintertime. Or they draw outside air into the mixture.

Are you running your air conditioner when you notice this happening? the air conditioner drain on most Rear wheel drive cars is located near the front of the transmission.

Small drips of coolant underneath radiator it seems but not overheating not sure what to check idk if its the radiator, a hose or maybe water pump.


You need to find the source of the leak, Follow the coolant residue to the leak. It can be tricky to find with all the plastic covers on vehicles now, You may have to remove to some covers to see the leak.

Iv changed the upper radiator hose but truck is still going threw coolant and water way to fast and dripping under neath. whats wrong with it?


sounds like the water pump might be going out.
try letting the car cool down, open rhe radiator cap and check for flow.
If you have flow detected while engine is running put the cap back on.
Once pressure builds water will pour out even faster under the car the pump is going bad.
One good indication for a bad pump is water being thrown up against the radiator after a pressure build up.
A cooling system pressure tester can be loaned to you at a local Auto zone shop.
You use this tool in place of the radiator cap and pump up pressure in the radiator and cooling system.
Once a presure is obtsined you can check for the leak location better with the engine not running.
Good luck,Gary

My 1994 sierra 1500 is leaking antifreeze right out. IS THIS MY WATER PUMP?


look in engine compartment from underneath- if water coming from directly over crank pulley(big one closest to ground) ,yes its the water pump- could also be lower hose(radiator hose closest to ground),if leaking up top - could be other radiator hose- if leaking near fire wall- heater hose- ?where is the water appearing?

My 1990 toyota corolla is getting hot really fast - i fill radiator up and after 5-10 min the water has evaporated - it appears to be leaking somewhere around the right side of engine (facing front of car)...


Well there are only 3 things that could have gone wrong.

1. Radiator Leak - this means the radiator has developed a hole with via corrosion of the metal parts of simply integrity failure of the plastic parts of the radiator.
2. Hose leak - this could be a hole in 1 of 2 hoses that connects the engine to the radiator. Or it can also be a leak where the hose connects to the radiator (clamp Failure).
3. Water Pump breakdown - this is where the gasket in the water pump has failed and is leaking out the water rather than pumping it.

All the problems above has different ways of diagnosing. but we can probably narrow it down.

1. if the leak is near the radiator then it could be a hose connection, hose breakage or Radiator hole.

2. if the leak is nearer the engine then check the other end of the hose and if its not there then it could only be the water pump is leaking. You can check this if there are water stains on the water pump. The water pump on a 1990 corolla is mechanical turned also by a fan belt. Look for a pulley that has a hose connected to the radiator and that would be the water pump.

I have a 1993 jeep cherokee limeted i had to change the water pump but now iam getting water spray from the bottom of the radiator but from the engine any 1 know what it could be?


Let it cool down and then get a flashlight (droplight bulb will break if it gets wet) and get under there and take a good look. From what you said, sounds like you have a leak from the lower hose. Check the end connections and make sure they are tight then start it up and watch.
Only other places it can leak that low there are from the pump gasket or the radiator.

Small coolant leak at front of engine hose area, not always maybe 1 out of 5 times driving to work.


If you can narrow down where the leak is coming from, it will be easier for you to fix, but it is most likely either a minor radiator leak, or your water pump. You can put a can of radiator stop leak in your vehicle, such as bars leak. It wont hurt anything. If the leak continues, and appears to be coming from the engine area, the water pump is failing, but also check around the thermostat housing, near where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine

Leaks small amount of coolant, but I don't see


Check the engine oil, see if the level is going up and what the condition is. you can take the oil cap off and inspect under it. if there is a milky fluid then the antifreeze is leaking in to your engine crank case which is bad for the engine bearing. The other thing to also check is the transmission fluid. make sure that its till bright red and not over filled to make sure it's not leaking in to your transmission through the transmission cooler which is apart of the radiator too. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.
