Those lines are for the transmission cooler in front of the radiator but there is no coolant or water going to the tranny. Those lines are full of tranny fluid.

Testimonial: "thank you that is correct, the lines are dry and free of cracks. The fluid appears to be comming down between the back of the engine and front of the trany. I can't tell where the leak starts?? There is a bit of antyfreeze nere the front of the engine also, but not as much. thank you for the info"

Lawrence is correct, there is no coolant in the transmission. If you see coolant dripping from the area where the engine and transmission connect, then it "could" be the freeze plugs in the back of the engine block or cylinder heads. Either way, the transmission would have to be removed to affect the replacement of those plugs. That said, it's MUCH more likely that one or more of the heater hoses or other small coolant hoses on the engine are leaking. The engine is tipped rearward slightly, so any leaking coolant hose will drain rearward and drip off the back of the engine. There are also two coolant passageways that go from the rear of the driver's cylinder head, through the rear of the intake manifold and into the passenger side cylinder head. It is fairly common for the intake manifold gaskets to leak coolant at these joints on this truck.

There are none. The Transmission does not use water to cool it.

    That iis used to cool the transmission fluid. check for loose connections or a hose clamp might need tightening

When I add water to radiator it just rushes out in the above mentioned area, behind the dngine


Freeze plugs. Your coolent was weak, it froze in your engine, expanded and pushed out 1 or more freeze plugs. To get to the rear most ones, head or engine removal will be required. Hope that is all the damage done, usually the engine block will bust/crack as well as your waterpump or anything that has coolent in it.

Water was used in coolent system with no anti freeze,


Is the water pump now leaking? There are other components that may have been damaged. The freeze out plugs in the engine block are designed to pop out if the coolant is not sufficient and freezes. This is to save the engine block from cracking, which may have happened. U need to get the car in a heated garage, fill system w/ water, check for leaks, and get the car running to again check for further leaks or problems. The radiator/heater core may also have been damaged. Only way to find out is to thaw it out and check it over carefully for leaks. Let me know how u make out.
