SOURCE: I have a coolant leak

Sounds like either the water pump or the thermostat housing. The water pump has a small hole in the bottom where the shaft comes through, when the water pump gets worn it will leak here so you know to replace the pump. The thermostat housing will be at the motor end of the upper radiator hose where it attaches to the motor. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1998 mustang gt coolant leak

I just had the same problem. Ford design the intake manifold with plastic water crossover which cracks. The coolant will leak onto the top of the block and and then down the back of the engine. This intake design is a known defect and was ocvered under by Ford for 7 years past the date of mfg. The crack either is in the crossover or the thermostat housing. I happed on this when I found the same leak and traced it back to the thermostat housing. I changed the thermostat, but it leaked worse. You can pickup a aftermarket for $200 and it's about 4-6 hr job to replace.

SOURCE: Mustang Transmission leak

it is possible it is bad. It is also very possible that the fluid is too low to work correctly. If the fluid level is right, Id say the tranny is no good.

You need to put pressure on the coolant system and look for the leak. If you are lucky you can find the coolant leak by following the coolant trail. It could be a head gasket, intake gasket, or coolant sensor near where you say, but take a good look to try to round it down.

SOURCE: Coolant leak in my 2000 Ford Taurus

I don't have the same coolant system that Ford has listed, my is different for my 2000 Ford Taurus SE 6cyl 3.0L. Where can we find the right part. I want to the junk yard 3 years ago and find one but the problem with that one is the top keep popping off. I have replaced the top three times and I am pissed because I love my car but I keep having to spend money on this system. H.E.L.P!!

1998 ford mustang 3.8l v6 leaking cookant from bottom of engine. Not sure where. Looks like it could be from the pan right under the engine


most probably from a rusted welsh plug in the block. Have the coolant system pressure tested and watch for the leak as it is probably running down from the welsh plug and collection at the sump flange.

Coolant leaking from 1998 ford mustang


If you have coolant leaking from the top of your engine then you have either a bad hose or your thermostat housing is leaking and requires a new gasket. Either one is an easy fix for anyone with even basic mechanical knowledge. Just ask your local parts shop to point out the problem to you.

I have a 1998 4 litre v6 that i want to put in a 1995 3.8 litre v6 mustang, will the transmission bolt pattern line up?


No, the transmission will not bolt up. Also the engine will sit too far forward because the holes are different in the k-member.

Leaking coolant


i believe this part you are referring to is the intake manifold. it seems to be a big problem with the older ford mustangs. make sure before you spend the big bucks on it that it's not just the water pump gasket.
