That is bad.---- The only way to fix it right is to pull the engine or transmission. That's the only way to get to it.

Stop leak mite work for a while. But it won't last.

1996 Sonoma freeze plugs i'm leaking water between the transmission and the engine block pouring out


Sucks to be you - just kidding. You will need to remove the transmission from the engine and possibly the flexplate as well to access the freeze plugs. You may consider just having the engine and transmission pulled together and having ALL the freeze plugs replaced. If some are failing, the others are not far behind.

Where are the freeze plugs located on a 2000 Plymouth breeze


Two on each side of the engine. Two in between the engine and transmission. The others are in the head. Front and back. these leak to muck oil to be freeze plugs. Unless you ran threw winter with no antifreeze. Where is the leak coming from? front or back?

Could freeze plugs cause my Lincoln navigator 5.4l engaging leak water from back of engine and oil from the side of engine


Yes, that is a possibility. I have a 4-liter V-6 in my 1993 Ford and it had two freeze plugs that had rusted and were leaking. It was easy enough to replace them because they were on the side of the block but I learned there are two freeze plugs hidden under the transmission bell housing. It they are leaking, antifreeze would be dripping off the back of the engine.

Freeze plugs should not cause oil leaks as they are a safety device for the water jacket.

Got a leak at the back of the engine after a freeze on a 1996 Ford f-150 v8 where are the freeze plugs back there


You have to remove the transmission to get to the freeze plugs on the back of the engine. Remove transmission and flywheel and you will see the freeze plug. Replace the plugs in the side of the block as well if you replace them.

Where are the freeze plugs located on a 2001 Dodge Intrepid 2.7


There are several freeze plugs but should only be 2 where the transmission and engine bolt up together. You will have to remove the transmission (transaxle) to replace them. To make 100% sure those are the only thing leaking coolant you may want to invest in a coolant pressure pump tool. They really aren't all tht expensive and will pump the coolant system up to normal operating pressures without having to crank the engine and getting it hot. After you pump the tool up just get a light and look for leaks. Also when it comes to freeze plugs. There is kinda of a unwritten rule (change one, change them all). Because freeze plugs are very inexpensive, but the labor is gonna be high usually. And while a technician is already removing this an that to change one. It will save you on labor in the long run. I promise. Because something caused that one to leak probably won't be long before the others start leaking as well. And you'd have to start over. Hope this helps.

I have a 1987 2wd ford f150 and there seems to be rusty water from my rad leaking out of my transmission area???


Hi, there are freeze plugs on the back of the engine block. If one of them has rusted thru, it will leak coolant into the transmission bell housing and out the bottom. You will have to separate the transmission from the engine at least a few inches or more to repair the freeze plug. If you need instructions for doing this, please reply with your engine size and type of transmission.

My truck is leaking anti-freeze between the engine block and transmission bell housing. Anti-freeze leaks onto the crossover exhaust pipe. Any ideas on how to fix this cheaply?


There is a freeze plug back there that must have came out. The plug is cheap, but you have to take the transmission off to get to it.

Leaking water from the back of the engine . it comes out of the bell housing of transmission. where is it coming from and how do i fix it????


Water is leaking from the engine block rear freeze plugs, transmission will have to be remove to replace freeze plugs, there's two, I would also have the rear main seal replace at the same time, there there already, or if it starts to leak later, you will have to have the transmission remove again to replace seal, hope this was very helpful.
