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.

Hi All Please help, what is the capacity of oil in a ford ranger 2.2 2014 base line? Also after the oil filter and change the oil light comes on. I used 7L of oil. Feedback will be appreciated

My best research shows this engine holds only 3.8 liters. If the engine is overfilled, the crank and connecting rods will be submerged in oil and can aerate air into the oil as it turns, causing low oil pressure, causing the light. If it is high enough to touch the piston bottoms, engine damage can result.

Vw chico keep blowing gasket of oil filter

There is a relieve valve inside the part that holds your oil filter. It sounds like it may be stuck open which causes too much oil pressure to be relieved on the filter causing it to blow. So this art needs to be taken off and inspected.

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

How much oil is to much for 1999 winstar, that would cause motor to lock up and throw rod

if you overfill it too much, maybe. Most likely it will just foam up the oil cause the crank is splashing in the oil. It holds about 5 qts

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.
