I will like to know if the antifreeze leak could be from the water pump if the leak comes from the bottom of the car and not from the radiator


ALL antifreeze leaks will be seen coming from the bottom of the car. Yes, it COULD becoming from the water pump. But then again, it could be coming from an intake manifold gasket, a heater hose, a throttle-body heater hose, a freeze plug, a timing cover, a heater control valve, etc..
To find out where it is leaking from, you must follow the antifreeze trail UP from where you see it leaking. Antifreeze leaks ALLWAYS travel downhill. Sometimes they can be deceiving also. I have seen intake manifold leaks at the front of the engine run all the way to the back of the engine and make it look like a rear freeze plug is leaking. Again, you must follow the trail to find the actual source.

Radiator fluid dripping down transmission bellhousing


Either one of the coolant hoses routed near the firewall is leaking (heater core lines, etc) or the intake manifold gasket (common failure point on those vehicles) is leaking and will need to be replaced. You will have to either run the engine or pressurize the system and look for leaks.

Antifreeze leaking from rear of 4.6 liter engine in 1994 Crown Victoria


Will be coming from either bad freeze plug(s) [most likely], a heater hose that is dripping so that it is running off the back side of the engine, or a leaking intake manifold that is located such that it is running off the back side.

My van is leaking antifreeze for the botton of the car isee it dripping off the transmission pan it is over heating and i loosing a lot of antifreeze


you may have blown a manifold gasket. check oil and see if it is milky looking. Does oil pressure light come on? If so the gasket is blown. I had a leak once and it was ths gasket, but none was leaking into oil, just out onto the engine near the intake manifold. You may also have a corroded freeze plug. If you live up north and get a lot of snow and road salt, this could really be the issue. They are not easy to change on front wheel drive engines. Sorry. Have a great 4th of July.

Antifreeze leaking from the back of the motor


Probably a intake manifold gasket leak. If you can see in the back part of the engine or know that the anti-freeze is leaking down the back on the transmission then on the ground then that is probably where it is coming from. The other place to check is the heater core which would be on the passenger side and see if where the hose come through the firewall that they are not leaking and running down and dripping on the ground. If your leak is on the intake manifold you will have get anther gasket and change the gasket which means removing about everything on top of the engine.

Water leak


And you are sure it is Anti Freeze that is leaking or is it water condensation dripping down from your air conditioning? And yes it could be coming from the backside of the engine on top from the intake manifold or up towards the top of the firewall near the two hoses going into your Heater core.

Have a look for a heater control valve that may be leaking in area near firewall on passenger side, just follow your heater hoses.
