Question about 1991 Ford F150
Leaking water and antifreeze out of back of engine
Check soft plugs in the back of the engine block (also called freeze plugs) which are there for the purpose of expansion in cases of freezing solid in order to prevent the engine block from cracking under the pressure of freezing. its not a costly repair if you can get to the plug to replace it yourself ? if not get it to a shop pronto because soon the temps outdoors will increase causing overheating of the engine to occur without proper coolant capacity. Good Luck and i hope this helps you.

Yes there are lower hoses--to radiator. Also heater hoses (smaller). Does the radiator fan(s) work when it's hot? Is the radiator fin structure in front full of bugs or other blockage? Check the coolant reservoir for leakage. Check the radiator pressure cap (when engine is cold) for bad gasket material (replace cap with new if part bad). Could have a leak from the radiator itself.

Sorry, but you are going to have to crawl under the car with a flashlight to find out where the leak is. It could be a freeze plug on the rear cylinder bank, a bad head gasket, or a leaking heater hose. Look for white marks where the anti-freeze has been leaking. In any case, it is going to be a royal P.I.T.A. to fix. Don't forget that patience is a virtue.

How about just get a piece of auto hose at the parts tore and clamp it on there. A lot of rubber parts are not dealer items, just shelf items. There are a bunch of different hoses, some reinforced, oil and gas proof, high temp, rubber, nylon, etc, etc. Just get a good one of the right diameter. Hope this helps.
