Yes there would be a welsh plug in that area and it is probably rusted out.

mmmmmmmm they are really hard to replace but most likelly is goin to be a intake gasket, i do recomend you to call arrown the auto repairs and ask for a pressure test to the cooling system
this test is not that expensive and will tell you exactly where is the leak coming from, but on this type of vehicles i badly see a freeze plug leaking.

SOURCE: COOLANT LEAKING, BUT NOT VISIBLE UNTIL IT GUSHES OUT OF THE BOTTO

U need to get under the car to see where the coolant is coming from. The car should be driven up on sturdy ramps, or placed on jack stands so u can safely go under the car to look for the source of the leak. It could be a heater hose, a radiator hose, freeze out plug in the block, the radiator. U must be careful of the hot coolant while checking it out! If u don't want to do the checking yourself, u should go to a garage with a lift. They can easily get under the car, and u can ask to see where the leak is. Get this checked asap, as u can blow the head gasket when the car overheats (this also may be the source of your leak) Let me know how u make out or if u need more info

there are a couple of ways to fix the problem. first you can use pepper to plug the hole if it is a small leak. If it isn't, then use radiator stop leak. You can find this at a parts store

SOURCE: antifreeze/coolant leaking from under passenger side dash

If it's your heater core, unless you're a mechanic you probably should get professional help. The heater core is located on the firewall and many parts need to be replaced to get to it. Do you see water on the floor inside the vehicle, Many times a heater core will leak inside.

How many freeze plugs are on a 2000 blazer 4.3 vortec


The freeze plugs are spaced out in a straight line along each side of the block. If you see others at the same height in front or behind where the motor mount is, then yes it probably is a freeze plug.

Put a jack under the engine with a block of wood between the oil pan and the jack head. Raise it slightly to remove the motor mount through bolt, then remove the mount from the engine block. Now you should be able to replace the plug. Use a punch to drive in one side, then grip with pliers and pull it out. Clean the recess before installing new plug. Auto stores stock them in all dimensions, or take your old one in for matching up. The rubber expansion plugs work well, too, and easier to install.

1992 chev s10 , 2.8 v6 , leaking freeze plug


If the welsh plug is in a position where by removing several items ( manifold --engine mount etc and you can get enough space to swing a hammer to install the new plug. then it can be done with difficulty. If the plug faces the fire wall then unfortunately the motor has to be pulled . The only advantage is that it is just not the one plug because if one is rusted out the rest will not be far behind so it is an opportunity to do the lot.. IT is a good reason to always ensure that the coolant conditioner is always changed regularly and kept up to percentage required.

Overheating


Was the coolant old and weak? At ten degrees, a weak coolant could result in freezing and that can cause an engine freeze plug to burst open. Check the side of the engine block for signs of leakage around the freeze plugs. Another possibility is the heater hoses. They run along the passenger side of the engine as well. The last possibility is the heater core. If it leaks you may smell coolant inside the passenger compartment. You MAY get a wet floorboard on the passenger side. Coolant leaking from the core usually will fall into the condensation pan for the A/C and run out of the passenger compartment thru the firewall on the passengers side.

My 2001 Pontiac montana is leaking coolant when it cool of. Its dripping from the transmition passenger side. I croled underneath and found that the coolant is leaking from the pass side of the engine...


probably a gasket that seals coolant behind cover. I don't remember if there is a freeze plug there.
sometimes a head gasket leak can do the same but not very common.

Coolant leak behind motor


No, on the freeze plug. A freeze plug leak would immediately start leaking as you were pouring coolant into the radiator. And would be leaking constantly, whether engine was running or not. More likely a head gasket, or if there is a coolant passage into your intake it might be an intake manifold gasket.

I have an 01 f150 when I pour water in the radiator it's pouring back out between the motor and trans bell housing out of the dust cover does anyone have any idea what the leak is I figure a freeze...


If you never overheated the engine and it never froze, then most likely a freeze plug has failed. You will need to either pull out the engine or remove the transmission (easier) to inspect the rear of the block. About the only way to crack a block is running it without any water in it and super overheating the engine. If it is a freezer plug, then I would replace it with a brass one if available.

I have a water leak near the front passenger sideof the motor its above the oil pan near a freeze plug but its not the freeze plug that i can see is there another freeze plug maybe behind the motor mount?


If the car is at operating temperature and the water is cool then it could just be air conditioning condensation.. Air conditioning units are usually located at the passenger side of the engine. If it is cool water it is nothing to worry about.

Py 1997 plynouth voyager is leaking antifreeze could it be freeze plugs and where are they


They are called CORE plugs as when they are made they take out all the sand out of the holes and fit in plugs.But if your leaking water out and cannot find it then yes its a core plug... as all summer you use coolant min 20%,Winter coming on 20% Antifreeze. and soon as winter is finished you should flush out the engine and radiator as Antifreeze causes the block to go rusty as its cast iron and the core plugs must be BRASS not steel because antifreeze eats away the plugs
But the plugs are fitted 1Rear of engine behind the flywheel 3 either side of engine block and some times 3 or 4 in the heads under the rocker gear..
Let me know how you get on .. Ron
