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.

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.

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.

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!!
