Water leak behind alternator leaking on top of motor


This could be your water pump (large hose coming out and routed to bottom of radiator) or it could be a loose thermostat housing, (large hose coming to it from top of radiator) or it could be the hoses themselves.

I have a 1988 isuzu truck, I have a leak behind the thermastat housing, I can not tell if there is a hose there or not, but I can see water squirting out, at the base of the housing on the backside,


may be that thermostat is cracked or could need to replace the gasket. would try gasket first if you cant see exactly where the water is coming from.

1998 for expedition 4.6 engine leaking water beteen the back of the motor and the transmission


Not very likely, check the coolant passage between the cylinder heads. (The front part of the intake, right behind the alternator) That piece which is part of the intake manifold has been a source of coolant leaks for many vehicles like yours. The alternator is pretty easy to remove... Disconnect the negative battery cable, turn the belt tensoner to remove the belt from the alternator, take out the two long 10mm bolts under the alternator and the three on top. I would check for leaks there because it was a common problem area, coolant would leak behind the alternator, fill the space under the intake manifold, and leak down right where the transmission bell housing is. There are expansion plugs, and allen plugs on the back of the cylinder heads, but they rarely leak.

MY 1965 lincoln town car is running hot due to leaking water. it is not the water pump or the thermostat had both check don't know where leak is comming from


The only way to fix it, is to find the leak, and repair it. Hoses? the intake manifolds are famous for cracking behind the alternator if it has a plastic intake manifold. But you are the one that has the car, so You have to find out where the leak is.

Water\coolant leaking from engine after shutting engine down


It takes a lot more than a small leak to consider your engine as "totaled"
Have the system pressure tested and carefully inspected. Every leak has a source. some are easy to find, some are a bit more difficult. A shop can use a fluorescent dye and a black light to locate the source if you can't.
I'd check the corners of the intake manifold and timing chain housing. Also, check the hoses again. A small pin-hole can squirt coolant far away from the hole itself and is often very difficult to see.
