Question about 1988 Ford Crown Victoria
I have a 1988 Crown Vic with the 5.0 and it started leaking from the back of the block. It hasn't gotten cold enough to pop a freeze plug and I know the block is not cracked. I guees it is a heater hose but I'm not sure how to check it because there is no room to see. any help would be great.
Well, i can say that i had the same problem with my 88 ford cv. i agree that it could be the return or delivery hose to the heater core. now the in's and out's are on the passenger-side of firewall, which you say something is [water] leaking from the block. check the return and delivery to the throttel-body. could also be the 4 piece gasket set of the lower intake manifold. look carefully at anything that is wet under the hood, even when motor is hot. o-yea, the heater hoses are easy to see. i already replaced all hoses on mine.

With the use of an automotive mirror and flashlight, you should be able to check the back and see what is actually leaking. May have to remove a few things to gain better access, but you would have to anyway to make repairs.

It will be the heater hose that popped off...you will have to take the breather off to be able to get to it and put it back in place. usually they are held on with a clamp so if theres not one there you will need to locate that one or buy a new one
