SOURCE: coolant is leaking from what appears to be a hose

Are you sure it's not water. It could be a drain for the cowl (rain water). If it is coolant it's coming from the heater core and hose should be changed. Good luck

SOURCE: water leaking from back of engine compartment

More likely the heater hose. Most run back behind the glove box. It could also be a leak in the heater core- normally that would fog the windshield on the inside.

Freeze plug


The passenger side of the engine is also where the water pump sits.
The freeze plugs would be along the block between the engine and the radiator and between the engine and the firewall.
The water pump would be behind the serpentine belt or the timing cover depending on which engine you have.

Where is engine heater


There should be a plug sticking out of or near the front grill. Block heaters are generally connected to the oil pan.
If you meant the heat exchange that brings heat from the engine into the passenger area, that is on the psssenger side betwern the firewall and the dashboard, usually near the glove compartment. This heater core will leak sweet-smelling radiator fluid (engine coolant) onto thr floorboards if it is defective. If you just aren't getting heat, be sure your coolant level is full, and if it is (but there is no leaking into the passenger area,) then look at the valve inside the engine compartment, and at what is called the Blend-door.

01 durango leakiing coolant nea trans and inside of vehicle


Leaking inside sounds like the heater core. If the core is broke right where the heater hoses connect, it might be losing coolant down both sides of firewall, inside and outside. Otherwise, look for a leak at the intake manifold. That might run down back of engine near the transmission, as you indicated.
Good luck.

What exactly is the "round


that is where your heater core is. Its leaking, or the feed hose to the heater core is leaking. You really need to pull the plastic cover off, just below the dash on the passenger side to look. the heater core looks like a small radiator. If coolant is leaking out of it, replace it. the coolant will cause problems in the long run, if you don't fix it now. After fixing it, steam clean the passenger side of the suv, to stop having a smell, and stop the corrosion. hope this helps

There is a water leak on the passenger side just in front of the firewall. It is a steady stream when I fill the radiator even when the engine is off. No water in the passenger compartment.


The heater core may be leaking or a coolant line near the firewall. The fact that the inside isn't wet doesn't mean it is not a heater core problem, as the plastic catch pan may redirect fluid to the firewall 'weep' hole.

Leaking oil left side of motor


Since it's not clear whether you mean driver side or passenger side, I will address both.

On the driver side, the most common leak is from the distributor. This can be caused by the distributor shaft exterior o-ring, or it can be caused by the distributor shaft interior bearing seal. To determine which it is, remove the distributor. First detach the spark plug wires, then undo the bolt that holds the distributor to the head, then pull the distributor out of the head. You will see the o-ring on the exterior of the distributor shaft. This is a $0.50 part, so just replace it with a new one as long as you have the distributor out. The bearing seal is on the inside of the distributor. To inspect it, undo the three bolts holding the cap to the distributor body. Pop the rotor off the shaft, the unclip the inside plastic cover. If you see any oil inside the distributor or the distributor cap, this means the seal is leaking and must be replaced. You can get a seal and bearing replacement kit from kbox.ca. Or, you can just buy a new distributor. Note: To get the distributor back in place you must align the shaft correctly with the notch in the camshaft. There is a right way and a wrong way. If the shaft seems to be aligned but does not go in, pull it out and rotate it 180 degrees, then put it back in.

The other possibility on the driver side of the engine is the main seal between the engine and transmission. If this is the case, you would have to either drop the transmission or pull the engine to replace it.

What if the oil is leaking on the passenger side? If it's coming from behind the timing belt cover, there is a camshaft seal and a crankshaft seal, both of which can leak oil. To get to them, you will have to remove all accessory belts and the alternator, remove the exterior crankshaft pulley, remove the engine mount (support the engine) and the timing belt covers, remove the timing belt, then the crankshaft pulley and/or camshaft pulley, whichever is necessary to replace the leaking seal(s).

Where else could oil be leaking from? If it's coming out from near the top of the engine, that's the valve cover gasket. Remove the valve cover and replace the gasket. While you're at it, replace the spark plug tube seals.

If it's coming out from near the bottom of the engine, it could be the oil pan gasket. Remove the oil pan and replace the gasket.

One more possibility for oil leakage: The head gasket. But in this case you would have noticed other symptoms besides just an oil leak.

Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

I have anti-freeze leaking from somewhere near the back and bottom of the motor, not sure if it is exactly the motor or a fluid line or what...what could the problem be?


Well fortunately core/freeze plugs rarely leak anymore so the most likely cause of your leak is a heater hose at the passenger side firewall. Place a piece of clean cardboard under the area and run the engine. Watch closely the two heater hoses coming from the heater control valve and into the firewall(heater core), I'm sure you will find your leak up there. Thanks, Dana
