Check the coolant elbows. Check the water pump. Best way to find the leak is to pressure test the system. Go rent a coolant system pressure tester from an auto store.

1998 for expedition 4.6 engine leaking water beteen the back of the motor and the transmission

Not very likely, check the coolant passage between the cylinder heads. (The front part of the intake, right behind the alternator) That piece which is part of the intake manifold has been a source of coolant leaks for many vehicles like yours. The alternator is pretty easy to remove... Disconnect the negative battery cable, turn the belt tensoner to remove the belt from the alternator, take out the two long 10mm bolts under the alternator and the three on top. I would check for leaks there because it was a common problem area, coolant would leak behind the alternator, fill the space under the intake manifold, and leak down right where the transmission bell housing is. There are expansion plugs, and allen plugs on the back of the cylinder heads, but they rarely leak.

My Alero has been leaking coolant heavily for the last few months. It has been checked for leaks in all hoses surrounding radiator, the system has been flushed and refilled, water pump replaced,...

if you need a quik fix, try aluma seal, maybe use 2 , just add them to your coolant and run engine till warms up, sometimes you need to use longer before leak stops. it is relatively inexpensive and available anywere you find automotive parts, or try another qualty rad stop leak. when you checked for leaks before did you have system under full pressure?

Anti-freeze is leaking from engine 1999 plymouth voyogar

Have someone top off the cooling system and run a pressure test to find the leak. There are a lot of places it could leak from. Do you see coolant dripping on the ground and if so in what area of the vehicle is it coming from? Front, center, right side behind tire? Need more info to be of any help.
