IF the coolant leak is on the right side of the engine near the top of the trans,inspect the coolant hoses for the heater core. This is common leak point on the 98 exped. Thankyou Please rate this info

two possibilities. first, it may be your intake manifold that is cracked, or it may just be the intake manifold gasket. if you determine that the leak isnt coming from that high up on the engine, then you may have a damaged freeze plug, which are installed to keep freezing water from damaging the engine in cold weather. sometimes they can pop out. I believe on that engine there is one on the engine block right in front of the transmission. hidden away between the two mating surfaces.

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.

The radiator in my 1998 Ford Expedition is leaking from the side. As soon as I put coolant in the over flow reserve it comes gushing out of the radiator. Can this be fixed?

Hi, the side of the radiator is plastic, if its leaking there its getting ready to leak other places to, you need to replace radiator. Patching the problem will only waste your time.

1998 ford expedition 4.6 engine without tow package...overheating

If you're running it without a thermostat it's clear there isn't enough/any coolant circulating through the block. When the motor is running are the hoses off the radiator soft and flexible or stiff. If they're soft there's no coolant flowing through them. Chances are the radiator core is bad or there is a crack in it somewhere. Have it removed and tested.

I have a coolant leak near the Transmission of a 1998 Ford Expedition, what could be leaking?

Mind did the same thing. The heater core went bad and on that model the box drains out under the car were condensation from the ac would let it out, instead of leaking inside the car on the passenger side on the carpet like older cars do.

I have a 1999 Ford Expedition that has coolant leaking out the back next to my spare tire. It's a lot of fluid. Is there a hose disconnected?

you need to put it up on a hoist and see where it is coming from.i just did a windstar that was dripping down the back of the transmission to the ground,but it was a broken pipe on the heater core and it was running down the firewall behind the fire mat.
