I think it's better to track the leak down before pulling anything. Run it and find the leak but don't let it run out of water while you are looking. Back there it is likely the head gasket at the very rear or like you said a frost plug. Find where there is no water on the engine and work down from there.

SOURCE: freeze plugs ford econoline 150

The freeze plugs can be fixed with the engine in the veicle. There are some rubber plugs available that have a bolt thru the middle. Pry out failed plug, push in rubber replacement, tighten bolt to expand rubber. Fixed.

SOURCE: my 2001 ford F150 is leaking water from above the trans

First off, is this water or antifreeze? If it's water it could be coming from the heat/air conditioning. If it's antifreeze, it's probably either a heater hose or the back of the intake manifold.

Coolant leaks from front of engine compartment on 1989 Ford F-150


have a coolant pressure test done on the system and find the leaks. If it is an old radiator with plastic tanks then the tanks may be split (common) -check radiator hoses for splits and radiator cores for leaks. If the hose is enlarged past the clamp replace it as it is about to burst anyway check water pump and check all points where hoses are clamped onto aluminium housings as they corrode under the hoses.

My ford has a leak on the right side front it smells like coolant over a two day period all the coolant leaked on the ground what do i do?


Well depending on what engine is in this vehicle, it could possibly be the water pump that is leaking or possibly a "freeze out" plug on the block. I would say it is more than likely the water pump. If you have no noticeable leaks from any of the hoses or radiator, i would definitely suspect the water pump or possibly the thermostat housing may have cracked and started to leak. My suggestion would be to look at all your hoses carefullly and then check the housings where the hoses connect to the engine block, if no signs of coolant are present, check around the water pump for noticeable coolant leaks. Hope this helps in your search for that coolant leak.

My oil gauge goes from low to hjgh and tappits get loud and my engine gets hot and its full of oil and water and coolant and can't find any water leaks and the water in the raidiator is circulating well


Pour a quart of auto trans oil, dexron, in the engine, run for ten minutes high idle and change boyh oil and filter. The Dexron works as a cleaneaner and will help flush anything that may have made house in your oil pump or bypass valve. Then change both oil and filter filter. do not throw out the old oil. Let it sit overnight tolrt it settle and separate. After 24 hours, check the bottom of the pan for water and trash. Let me know if you find either. Drag a magnet through it also,.

Heat blow cold air


most likely a problem with the water circulation around the heater core. if you've never used the heater, some vehicles have a hot water shut-off valve for the heater hoses. another possibility is the thermostat had been removed. the easiest way is to start the vehicle and slowly allow it to warm up monitoring the water temperature. it should heat up to normal water temperature, then heat up and then drop down. the thermostat is usually around 180 degrees or 192 degrees. it allows the water around the engine block to heat up then once it reaches 180 or whatever it opens up circulating the cooler water from the radiator into the engine block and pushing the hotter water into the radiator to cool off. no thermostat, then the water keeps constantly circulating not allowing it to properly heat up. this can slow the heater down, lower fuel economy, alot of things especially in the winter driving...

Drain and refill with the proper fluid, and keep truck out of deep water. There is no trans. cooler on these manual trans. vehicles, so there is no chance for contamination.

Water in standard trans.1992 f-150


The only way I can think of for water to get in a standard transmission is if the rubber boot on top of the transmission has deteriorated and is allowing the water picked-up from the road and swirled around the undercarrage by turbulence to seep into the transmission. If you ever pulled one of this transmission then you know a lot of sand gets deposited on top of them by all the water that swirls around them.
