Question about Cars & Trucks
Found a leak where the water pump bolts to motor. Is it a cracked block or a seal?
Only way to tell for sure is to pull the pump off and inspect it. Odds are very good that it's just a bad gasket.

This is a shot in the dark depending on how much it is leaking you can try a sealent called bars stop leak it is poured directly into the radiator (a cool one) and is run for an extended period of time you are not out much if it d'ont work. other than that you will have to have the gasket replaced with a sealent tempeture over 500 degrees good luck!

if its anything like a 4.6 v8 in a 2000 f150 then there may be a hose under the intake,which the intake has to come off to fix it.and its a steel hose with a 3 inch piece of rubber hose on the end which is where it leaks,right behind the water pump\or alternator but actually down in the valley under the intake

A crack in that area of the block, while possible, is highly unlikely. A crack in the block usually happens in between the cylinder walls on the side of the block. It is most likely leaking from the intake manifold gasket that connects the intake manifold to the heads, or if the upper radiator hose connects to the intake manifold, it could be leaking from the thermostat housing or hose. There are also coolant temperature sensors that are mounted in that area. Or last but not least, it could be leaking from one of the freeze plugs in the end of the head. Coolant runs through the block, heads and intake manifold.
