Question about Ford Bronco II
I just bought a 1989 Ford Bronco 2 with a 2.9L engine. I fixed two freeze plugs, and then noticed a leak coming from another part of the engine. I finally located the source of the leak. At the front driver's side of the engine, under the left side of the AC condenser, there is what looks to be some type of circular plug. It is about the size of a freeze plug but has a hexagon bolt with the option of using a flat head. beside the bolt, there is a crescent shaped male end where a possible plug may go. Although, there was nothing plug into it. In the crescent shape area there are 3 prongs. It is leaking coolant when it runs. The plug or seal is no longer in the hole allowing coolant to leak. What is this part? I cannot figure it our.
This part your looking at is a form of a freeze plug... the three prongs is a block heater. it can be replaced with a normal freeze plug or replace it with another and plug it in on these cold cold nights..

SOURCE: Leaking coolant water
This L shaped hose is a drainage for the heater core compartment. Once we removed the panel to the heater core it was obvious the heater core was leaking into this compartment. We changed the heater core out and the problem has been solved :)

when installing new o-ring on tube, lubricate o-ring and stick it in water pump. Then pull pressure back on tube and then tighten hold down clamp. problem solved

It is not the freeze plug but the o-ring gasket at the back of the 23 radiator lines back there, there are 2 that you have to replace, Easy fix, but a nightmare to get to. The o-rings are nothing special, reg off the shelf. It wold be a good idea to take fotos before you start so you can see where everything was when you started, then it should all go back. the intake, dist coils, all the pipes, have to be moved out of the way. You get to clean up that mess back there while you are at it, Good luck.
