Lower intake gasket is a common place to leak, coolant will run off the back side of the engine. freeze plugs can also leak. you will need to inspect the underside of the vehicle to locate the leak for sure.

It might be the coolant in your car, or it could be the window washing fluid. There is a lea for sure if there is water coming off of it. Just to be safe you want to take it in a get your hoses inspected for any holes that might be in them so that they can get it repair. Or if you have been able to locate the hose you can buy some sealant to cover the hole and you will not have to pay as much for getting someone to look at it.

Why would my engine block be spewing water out under neath next to the oil filter


Hello,

On an engine block there are 'Freeze plugs'. The reason for freeze plugs is to allow for expansion (E.G.--when water freezes it expands). If water does get cold enough or does not have enough antifreeze in the system the water will expand and 'pop' a freeze plug to prevent the engine block or heads from cracking. However--these plugs can fail (not cold related) causing a leak in the cooling system. Thus water circulates through the block and heads to provide cooling (water pump-radiator-heater core). Also--water pumps when they go bad have a hole that 'pops' and leaks to let you know the water pump needs to be replaced. Therefore--Location is key.

I hope this helps.

Water leaks


water pumps have a drain hole on the bottom next to the block and it is there to allow water that has passed a faulty seal to leak out before it damages the bearing.. Pull the water pump and if that is the case replace it with a new item as it is more expensive to repair than to replace.

We replaced the theromostat and the radiator but it is still leaking under the car on the drivers side


Leaking water on teh drivers side indicates a cracked block or cracked head in most cases. Unless you have a water injected motor, I don't remember Ford using one, there are no water ports on that side of the motor. It could be the water pump leaking and being pushed back when the vehicle is running so check for leaks around the water pump. You need to check the heads, side of the engine block and the freeze plugs to make sure there are no cracks or leaks around the head gasket seal.

Where can you find from the engine block the water jackets of my 300m. It suspect that these waterjackets are already coroded causing water leaks. Is it advisable to put solution on the water reservoir the...


the water jackets are part of the casting of the engine block they surround the cylinders water jackets dont corrode away they clog or if they are leaking u have a cracked engine block if u are getting antifreeze into oil and steam out of exhaust more than likely its a head gasket-- because if u crack a water jacket that usually means a blown engine and need to replace or rebuild ---and the additive usually works for radiator leaks and some minor head gasket leaks

Check out your freeze plugs. They are thin metal cups that press fit into the side of the block. Use a mirror and a light to inspect while the engine is running.
