Rear crossover ports on the intake manifold, and/or freeze plugs at the rear of the engine. Also see if there is a hot water control valve for the heater in that area.

No way for it to get into engine. Inspect calipers and rear wheel cylinders. Also inspect lines. May be leaking onto exhaust system.

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.

My 07 impala is losing anti freeze but nobody can find a leak anywhere how can i solve this problem


if cant find any spots on the ground an you're still losing anti-freeze, from my experience its always been the headgasket, if the headgasket isnt fully blown out your car will seem like its running fine an burn the antifreeze up during the combustion stroke of the engine, or it could be leaking onto the exhaust. check to see if theres any puddles of anti-freeze on top of the engine an check for leaks around the heads. if there is no puddles of leaks it could be your antifreeze is leaking into the engine an burning up during the combustion stroke

Leaking anti freeze from back of engine cannot see where the leak is it is not the heater hoses or the waterpump


It is possible that it may be the intake manifold leaking. If it is a 3.8 or 3.1 liter V-6 I would check the intake manifold gasket. These have a plastic gasket with silicone on each end that tend to crack and start leaking. you can normally see the leak behind the exhaust crossover pipe on the back side of the engine.

check for a wet tailpipe,which might indicate a leak between water jacket & combustion chamber.i.e.headgasket.check heater hose isn't leaking onto exhaust manifold,'cooking' the anti-freeze as it leaks.

Anti freeze leeking


I have seen a couple of these now with headgasket leaks to the outside of the block just as you describe. I solved them both with a stop-leak additive, not something I would normally use, but I really didn't want to pull the heads because the exhaust studs always break on these engines. I would find out for sure where the leak is before proceeding though. If it's a hose or frost plug, you'll have to repair it properly.

Not really. The head gasket is not mendable from outside with epoxy or inside with sealers. Good luck.

Losing Anti-Freeze


hi get it prussure tested if you are correct in saying there is no sign of a leak or signs of water in the exhaust then you will have a leak and what is happening is it is evaporating as it leaks hence on sign of leak usually theseleaks are found where hose are near something hot example exhaust manifold the pressure tester will make the leak visable yates210456
