ENGINE BLOWING FREEZE PLUG IS CAUSED BY RUST OR CORROSSION DUE TO TIME WEAR, HEAT STRESS, OR ENGINE GETTING TOO HOT PRESSURE BUILT UP DUE TO.ENGINE BLOCK CLOGGED NEED FLUSHING ALSO RADIATOR.REPLACE THERMOSTAT ALSO.
I had a problem similiar to that, it ended up actually being a small 5/16 coolant hose that went to the head (one for each side). it was difficult to find but right where the hose enters the engine it was cracked and leaking. it's kind of behind each side of the coil rail.
try using a mirror to see in the rear of the motor because ther are freez or welch plugs at th rear of the head & engine block!
it may also be leaking behind the flywheel & can only be seen coming from where the transmission or gearbox bolts to th motor!
Can't help locate the leak, but I have the same problem. I can tell you that in my situation, leak is not coming from the hoses behind the intake mainfold as I removed it and looked. I am going to try and find the freeze plugs next, but have been unsuccessful locating any information on the location via Haynes manual or internet.
If I rember correctly, there are two freeze plugs in the back of the block, behind the flywheel. They generally dont go bad often because they are pretty much protected. As that angelo guy said, more likely a hose or rear of intake gasket, but you have to look, from here I can't see it!!!
