What you need to do is pressure test the system.Jack the van up and see if you can pinpoint where the leak is coming from.Always use jack stands when the vehicle is jacked up and block the wheels.You can check the motor area also.Sometimes the coolant will run down the side and it looks like it is leaking from the bottom.Good luck.

Leaking antifreeze

Yes, it is leaking whilst running. You need to locate the source of the leak. Do not drive the car until the leak is repaired as you may overheat and damage the engine.

I have a 1999 plymouth voyager 3.3 liter van that is leaking antifreeze. I assumed it was probably in one of the hoses. When I got underneath to investigate it seems to be leaking from the rear of the...

I am assuming by anti freeze you mean the radiator coolant.

If it is leaking from the rear of the engine then it is very likey a few of the welch plugs are leaking due to rust.

You need to replace them. Hopefully it is not the engine head gasket which can cost a lot to replace.

1999 Dodge Caravan 3.0 on the right side there is a large square pan (larger that oil pan) looking underneath it appears antifreeze is pouring out in a steady stream from one of the bolt holes on this...

I believe u are referring to the tranny pan. And if u are loosing that much fluid I would start looking around the block for any sings of a blown head gasket. If u live in colder climate it could also be a freeze plug that is bad. In Minnesota I see this all the time. People think they can do there own coolant flush and end up putting to much water in and freezing the block partially and when it thaws loose coolant from that plug. I would suspect a bad rear seal in the motor or a bad oil pan gasket be the cause of the oil. But without seeing the vehicle and the leaks I cannot say for certain but those are the things I would think it to be. Now no offense to you at all, but I think I would take it in to a shop to find the problem, or a food friend that knows about cars, like what a tranny pan is. And like I said no offense to you. But to me this sounds like it could be a big deal of work not for the novice.

Leaking antifreeze and it's not a pipe or the water pump

First, No your truck engine shouldn't need to come out if it is a frost plug. May be hard to get at but most times patience & the right tool will pop that bad one out for you if thats what it is. Do yourself a favor though, unless its the hole with a block heater in it, just by a rubber plug (similar to a thermos plug) designed to replace the metal frost plug. take your old plug with you for correct sizing. It's just a round plug with a nut in the center that you tighten once you've put it in the hole, and it expands & seals. Just remember you want it tight but not so tight that you snap the nut. Clean hole good prior to install. Will save you lots of time and aggravation. If it is your block heater, just buy another the same, they are pretty easy too.
Now to the Caravan, click on link below and scroll down to figure # 2 and click on the picture, that is your engine. Where about do you see leak from (area) Maybe below # 9?

May require vehicle on hoist or at least on ramps, and a flashlight/troublelight to see exactly where its coming from. Could be just a frost plug, but until you can pinpoint the spot, don't drive it, or run it for that matter & cost yourself more money.

Freeze plugs are usually on the side of engine block. If the freeze plugs leaking, it is a simple job to replace them without removing the engine. You should get under the truck to locate the source of leaking antifreeze.

Water leak near transmission

freeze plugs checked they are fine all 3 of them. and nope the air conditioner isnt running. example: if i start it and let it idle it will leak visibaly but not a steady stream. after the motor starts to heat up the stream gets bigger and bigger but no gushing. oh and i forgot to mention the water is just water not other fluids in it. not to sound stupid but im not sure about which of the hoses are heater and radiator but we checked them all. there is a plate covering the face of the big end of the transmission and a pipe coming out of it and looks as if it is going into the motor. its leaking at the plate and entrance of the plate is what it seems like.
