Why is there antifreezes leaking out of bell housing on a 1999 dodge Cummings diesel engine, is it a freeze plug or a crack in block


there almost certainly will be a freezeplug in that area , but first make completely sure the coolant isn't leaking higher up and looks like from bell housing , get the area steam cleaned and make sure it's not from the head gasket or another freeze plug , 30 minutes spent doing this could save you time and money dropping the gearbox etc , hope this helps

Hydraulic leaking


Do you have a hydraulic operated clutch? The slave cylinder for a hydraulic clutch would be on or sometimes inside the bell housing. Some ford and chevy trucks put the slave cylinder in a very difficult to reach place-the transmission has to be removed to service the slave cylinder. Most cars have the slave cylinder mounted on the outside of the bell housing. If they leak, replace or rebuild, although those internal slave cylinders I think can only be replaced.

Leaking from the front of bellhouseing


Gday mate,geoff here, there are 3 things that can leak there, 1st is coolant as there should be a freeze plug at the back of each cylinder bank in there.
2nd engine oil as there is a seal on the crankshaft and a plug at the back of the Cam tunnel, mostly if its engine oil it will be the crank seal.
3rd is gear/transmission oil, front seal on the gearbox if that is the case, also make sure that the oil isn't coming from the top and leaking down to look like its the bell housing leaking, as the valley cover and rocker covers extend back to just above the bell housing, hope this helps, geoff.

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.

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.

Leaking coolant from rear of engine is there a


No, that would probably be a freeze plug on the back of the block if the coolant is coming out between transmission bell housing and engine.

If you are ABSOLUTLY POSITIVE this is where the Coolant is coming from the ONLY Sorce is Freeze plugs ,There are Usualy 2 Behind the Flywheel. Sorry For the BAD NEWS but this IS the only thing that can Leak Out of the Bell Housing, Transmissiou Must Come Out and Flywheel also, Once The Flywheel is OUT you will see the FREEZE PLUGS. Good Luck !! Please RATE ME !!!!!!!!!!!!

Huge Coolant Leak


It is most likely the cylinder block core plug at the rear of the engine, there was a recall to repair corrosion in the cooling system I think in 96, but they still rusted up allot, saw many new cars with rusted core plugs leaking. Press test the system on a lift, if that core plug is leaking you will have to pull out parts, most likely the transmission to get at it.
