The only thing I could think of is that you might have a leaking freeze plug on the back of the block.

V6 coolant leak


If it is in fact between the bellhousing and block, and not leaking down onto the outer surface of the bellhousing, its the freeze plug on the back of the block.
The engine or trans would need to be pulled to get to it.

Coolant leak bellhousing 27


More than likely the housing has a crack or a bad gasket. The best way to find out is to disassemble it or take it in to the shop.

Coolant leak on 97 grand cherokee,looks to be coming from the rear of the block between the transmission and oil sump is there a core plug (freeze plug) that end of the block, and how do i get at it


There are two on the rear of the block. If leaking, the coolant will be coming from inside the bellhousing. This part you won't like....you need to remove the transmission to get at them. Check carefully that nothing external is leaking before doing anything further.

Do i have to remove transmission to replace freeze plug on 1996 gmc sierra 5.0 vortec engine


Usually you can get rubber freeze plugs and if the freeze plug that is in the very back is leaking you will see the water coming from between the bellhousing and block - just be sure it isn't leaking above that and just looks like it is coming from the freeze plug between the block and tranny.
I would for sure check with a local mechanic first and let them see if it is just a heater hose or something above it. Usually a freeze plug goes for life.

Coolant leaking,I have to keep refilling the reservoir, but I do not see where it is leaking?


if there are no visible leaks ending up on the ground, check the engine oil level and see if it is overfilled or looks like there is coolant on the dipstick, could either be a head or intake gasket leaking coolant into the engine. Also check for white smoke coming from the exhaust which shows that the engine is burning coolant. If the engine has overheated recently there is a good chance that you have a cracked head and coolant is leaking internally in the engine
