We had the same problem on my 97 rodeo and thought the same thing but it so happens that there is a water tube that runs under the intake and has an o ring that over time gets hot and ends up dry rotting. which causes it to leak you wont be able to tell unless you remove the intake manifold and see. i had water filling up and running over the back of the motor which cause us to thing is was a freeze plug but in return it was a lot less work. though you might start here before you pull your tranny

Could freeze plugs cause my Lincoln navigator 5.4l engaging leak water from back of engine and oil from the side of engine


Yes, that is a possibility. I have a 4-liter V-6 in my 1993 Ford and it had two freeze plugs that had rusted and were leaking. It was easy enough to replace them because they were on the side of the block but I learned there are two freeze plugs hidden under the transmission bell housing. It they are leaking, antifreeze would be dripping off the back of the engine.

Freeze plugs should not cause oil leaks as they are a safety device for the water jacket.

Why is there antifreezes leaking out of bell housing on a 1999 dodge Cummings diesel engine, is it a freeze plug or a crack in block


there almost certainly will be a freezeplug in that area , but first make completely sure the coolant isn't leaking higher up and looks like from bell housing , get the area steam cleaned and make sure it's not from the head gasket or another freeze plug , 30 minutes spent doing this could save you time and money dropping the gearbox etc , hope this helps

I have a 1987 2wd ford f150 and there seems to be rusty water from my rad leaking out of my transmission area???


Hi, there are freeze plugs on the back of the engine block. If one of them has rusted thru, it will leak coolant into the transmission bell housing and out the bottom. You will have to separate the transmission from the engine at least a few inches or more to repair the freeze plug. If you need instructions for doing this, please reply with your engine size and type of transmission.

My truck is leaking anti-freeze between the engine block and transmission bell housing. Anti-freeze leaks onto the crossover exhaust pipe. Any ideas on how to fix this cheaply?


There is a freeze plug back there that must have came out. The plug is cheap, but you have to take the transmission off to get to it.

Leaking water from the back of the engine . it comes out of the bell housing of transmission. where is it coming from and how do i fix it????


Water is leaking from the engine block rear freeze plugs, transmission will have to be remove to replace freeze plugs, there's two, I would also have the rear main seal replace at the same time, there there already, or if it starts to leak later, you will have to have the transmission remove again to replace seal, hope this was very helpful.

It sounds like you have a freeze out plug broken. This is a job you may have to remove the engine just to see that you did not crack the engine block. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. thanks.
