Freeze plug


The passenger side of the engine is also where the water pump sits.
The freeze plugs would be along the block between the engine and the radiator and between the engine and the firewall.
The water pump would be behind the serpentine belt or the timing cover depending on which engine you have.

It sure sounds like the heater core, especially if you have water leaking inside the cabin. The two heater hoses only go from the engine to the firewall, and do not go into or through the firewall. They connect to the heater core right at the firewall.
Check carefully around the back side of the engine and the heater hoses, though. If a freeze plug is leaking, water will be dripping off the bottom of the engine. If it is leaking before the firewall, that would not be the heater core.

  • When your heater core leaks it will not leak in the engine bay. The heater core is behind the dash and will make the passenger side floorboard wet. Also the windows will fog when on defrost and a sweet smell will take over the cabin. I don't suspect the heater core. BUT the heater core hoses are against the firewall and one could have cracked a leak. You will notice this though. You will see two smaller hoses going into the firewall on the passenger side of the vehicle. If they are leaking they are an easy spot.

  • Your water pump is more in the mid section on top of the belt drive system. Water could be splattering back there but if you see it steadily leaking from back there with the vehicle off then I would not suspect the water pump.

  • Freeze plugs are where the engine sits as it is cast, when being made. The holes that are left when the engine is lifted after casting are where the freeze plugs go. This is where the antifreeze circulates around the block to keep the engine cool. This is what I suspect is the problem. If that freeze plug is accessible the you can replace it no problem. If it is not then you may have to take it to a repair shop so they can lift the engine up a bit and replace it.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a water leak near the front passenger sideof the motor its above the oil pan near a freeze plug but its not the freeze plug that i can see is there another freeze plug maybe behind the motor mount?


If the car is at operating temperature and the water is cool then it could just be air conditioning condensation.. Air conditioning units are usually located at the passenger side of the engine. If it is cool water it is nothing to worry about.

Freeze plug/plate leak


if this is the plate above LH side of the oil filter and behind/below the alternator, the gasket is leaking. Its called Water/coolant seal plate. Hopefully this helps

Clear Oil leak on Mitsi Mirage 1989


could the clear oil actually be water?. if it is leaking out in the area around or behind the passenger side front wheel on hot days, it is probably water from your A/C, system. it has an overflow or drainage pipe, as the process of cooling the air dehumidifies it and produces water. just a guess though
