I know this darn hose, u have to pull the intake to replace it, we used the factory hose but you can use any type of water/coolant rated hose in that size.

Coolant leaking from under engine 97 5.7l silverado


It is most likely the water pump, the air flow under the engine causes the coolant to go back under the truck. Fell under the front of the water pump for moisture or a slimy liquid.

Lower radiator hose inlet tube leaks


the tube runs under the intake if it is a 3.0 liter. so the first step is to remove the intake. you may also have to remove the timing belt and water pump since the tube attaches to the rear of the water pump.

Coolant line under intake is leaking 95 town car


95 Lincoln town car coolant leak under intake SOLUTION EASY

Ok this is a 4" piece of hose leaking on a tube that runs under the intake manifold and fastens to the rear of the engine with 2 small bolts that are very hard to get to. The heater core hooks up to this tube with a 5/8 hose that's 3/4 on the other end going into the heatrer core.
Solution:
remove alternator
see clamp on hose?
remove it.
If you can't remove it, clamp vice grips on it and take a steak knife and cut through the hose towards the rear of the engine. Now with large screw driver pry the hose and clamp off the nub on the rear of the water pump housing. You may have to move the tube and remaining hose out of the way first. Just stick your hands in there and force it out of the way. Now you have a clean nub to hook a 5/8 bypass hose to. Here's where you get it. Go back to the heater core and and remove the hose that connects to this tube that runs under the intake. Just cut it where it hooks to the tube and remove it carefully from the heater core because this is now your needed bypass hose. Now with a couple feet of 3/4 hose and a coupler you have all you need to reroute this water outlet around the engine to the heater core. Take your hose you cut from the other end of the tube and removed from the heater core and and fasten it to the nub on water pump housing use new screw type stainless Steel clamps. You have to take this one apart to put it on. Stick a 3/4 coupler into the other end and route a long section of 3/4 hose under alternator to the heater core using SS clamps where needed. job done... Just leave the old tube where it is under the intake manifold......Thank you Very Much

Where are all the freeze plug located on 4.6 w/auto. is there one between the block & transmission


Yes, there are expansion plugs (freeze plugs) on both sides of the engine block and at the rear of the engine block between the engine and transmission. There are also a couple in the ends of the cylinder heads.

With all that said, I would like to add that many times with that engine, the heater tube and connecting hoses can leak and be mistaken for a rear expansion plug leaking. I would definately check this before pulling the transmission out.

There is a tube that runs from the back of the water pump under the intake manifold and out the rear of the engine where it hooks up to the heater hose/heater core. This tube has a small hose connecting it to the back of the water pump. There is also a hole in the back of the engine block that will allow antifreeze from under the intake manifold to leak into the transmission bell housing area. When this tube or hose leaks, it often gets mistaken for a leaking rear expansion plug.

It is very easy to check for this. Remove the serpentine belt and remove the alternator and look under the intake manifold down in the "valley" between the cylinder heads. If there is antifreeze in there, the hose or the tube is leaking. Look at the picture below. Item #3 is the tube and hose assembly I am talking about. Usually, just the hose is leaking. It should be replaced with a short piece of SILICONE heater hose. On some of the vehicles, there are 2 hose clamps. On others, the end of the hose that is attached to the tube has a crimped collar on it. If yours is like this, you can fix it by carefully cutting the crimp collar off and replacing the hose using band clamps. (screw-type)

Also look for antifreeze leaking into this area from the front intake manifold runner. They tend to leak on the front runner near where the thermostat housing is located. These will also leak into the valley area and run out the back of the engine. If the manifold is leaking, chances are it is warped. DORMAN makes a replacement intake manifold kit just for this purpose because it has been so common. It is also very easy to check for this with the alternator removed.
The DORMAN part number for your vehicle is 615-178 (See second picture below)

This is for a Mitsubishi 3.0 V6 that is in a 1994 Dodge Caravan.I have water coming out from under the lower radiator hose water outlet, but it's NOT coming FROM the hose or water outlet as I have...


I ASSUME you are leaking from the engine, not the radiator? These engines have a tube running from a radiator hose to the back of the water pump. The pipe is 2 pieces. if thats what is leaking buy new pipes from the dealer with all o rings (2) . Theres also a BY PASS hose on the end of the pipe, replace that also. You should be able to replace them without taking off the intake manifold. They usually last forever unless you have not been keeping good coolant/ anti freeze.

I have a leak and cannot find where it is coming from!? Could it be coming from the water pump?


Yes its likely most water pumps have a small hole on the under side of them called a weep hole. Its there to let you know that the seal is starting to leak and the pump needs to be replaced before it completely fails say on the highway and dose a lot of damage to the engine If its coming out the bottom center of the pump shaft and just driping a little then its time to replace the pump you should be able to feel the hole with your finger

On my 1993 town car (4.6) there is a 5/8" hose that connects to a nipple behind water pump and runs toward rear of car under the intake. It sprung a leak. I disconnected it by water pump, but after it...


Sounds like one of the heater core hoses, a problem with Ford in general is there lack for engineering that makes sense as in this case. You may need to get a Haynes service manual with the fully detailed diagrams before you attempt this repair. You can get them from your autoparts store for about 10-15 good to have on hand for concise details

MY 1965 lincoln town car is running hot due to leaking water. it is not the water pump or the thermostat had both check don't know where leak is comming from


The only way to fix it, is to find the leak, and repair it. Hoses? the intake manifolds are famous for cracking behind the alternator if it has a plastic intake manifold. But you are the one that has the car, so You have to find out where the leak is.
