My 84 dodge ram charger 318 it have a round hole in the block on top of tha starter and its leaking water I dnt remove any seal or someting like that i found it the way it is nd i dnt know what is it

Could be one of the rear freeze plugs, or the head gasket on that side.
Usually a freeze plug drips off the flywheel.
Is it water or coolant ?

Why its my 84 ram charger 318 its leaking water thru the starter

There's no water there. It's probably leaking from above the starter and running onto it. Maybe a core plug, or freeze plug as it is also called, is leaking engine coolant. They are round holes in the engine block sealed by metal plugs driven into them. If they corrode or rust through, engine coolant will leak out of them.

Use the balljoint removal tool to remove. Sometimes a bottle jack comes in handy for the stuck ones. When you put them back on, use a big C-Clamp

If the engine seems to run fine over 1450 RPM maybe there is a vacuum hose leaking or EGR valve is slightly stuck open. Any help from the OBD II trouble codes? Or is there simply no MIL and no stored information in the OBD II computer read at the local parts store through the connector by the drivers knee?

Antifreeze leak in back of engine

Sounds like your right rear freeze plugs are probably leaking .. but first you need to make sure its not coming from up around the rear of the intake before pulling the transmission . this would be the best way to fix this problem .. thanks jerry holler if you need more.
