    Do you have coolant in your oil, or a white mucky substance on your oil dipstick?

    have you tried to tighten the intake bolts? and have you checked the heater hoses for holes for leaks?

Sounds like you have a freeze plug that has rusted out. And it is located in side the bell housing behind the flywheel. You will need to remove the transmission and the flywheel to gain access to the freeze plugs. There are two of them at the rear of the engine above the center line of the crankshaft. One to the left and one to the right.

V6 coolant leak


If it is in fact between the bellhousing and block, and not leaking down onto the outer surface of the bellhousing, its the freeze plug on the back of the block.
The engine or trans would need to be pulled to get to it.

I have a 97 passport and my engine coolant keeps leaking out of a small hole right above the flywheel on the back of the engine block. Is this hole supposed to be there and if so where would the leak...


I Have a 94 Rodeo,3.2l v6 I had the same problem...Yes it is a drain hole..You might have a coolant pipe running under your lower intake if so it's the "O" ring on that pipe..It runs from the upper radiator hose to rear of block...50 cent part. If you are doing it yourself check the other heater hose metal pipe O ring also. towards the front under the thermostat housing. I just fixed mine.I had antifreeze coming out the inspection plates on the trans took off the upper plenium and lower intake and the rubber O ring was shot.Clean out flange use a wire V shaped wheel. make sure the Ring fits Snug on the coolant pipe,dry fit in the flange.( Got assorted sizes at NAPA) put a good coat of Black RTV silicon on O ring,And some in the hole itself press pipe in hole and install the bolts.Allow to set for 3hrs. Again this is on a 94 Isuzu Rodeo 3.2 L V6 5spd. Hope that helps you

I have a water leak on my 96 camaro. It has a 3.8 v6 engine. The water is leaking, not from the water pump itself but from behind the part the water pump mounts on. Not immediately behind the water pump...


It is your Lower Imtake Manifold gasket (LIM). Late Production Camaros and Firebirds used Dex-Cool coolant which nortoriously caused the LMI to actually disintegrate. The failure of the LIM allows coolant to leak to the exterior of the engine as well as into the interior of the engine eventually getting into your oil. Check your oil for a brown milky color... if you have it immediately drive your car to you favorite repair shop and replace the LIM gasket. The GM 3.1L, 3.4L and 3.8L engines are famous for disintegrated LIM gaskets and a good shop will have replaced 30-50 of these in a year. The LMI is part of the reason the public dissed Pontiac and eventually led to its demise (not to mention bad management at GM). Find a shop familiar with the LIM problem and it shouldn't cost more than $500 to replace (or less). If you have any mechanical skill you can replace it yourself... the gasket kit costs about $35 at NAPA AutoParts and it takes a whole Saturday if it's your first time. I just finished replacing the LMI on my wife's '94 Firebird.

Leaking coolant from the rear of the engine compartment near the ac drain on a 97 isuzu rodeo 3.2 litre. Not coming from the heater core hoses.Cant seem to find the leak.


try using a mirror to see in the rear of the motor because ther are freez or welch plugs at th rear of the head & engine block!
it may also be leaking behind the flywheel & can only be seen coming from where the transmission or gearbox bolts to th motor!
Cheers Rob
