Question about 1987 Dodge Ram Wagon B250
My van was overheating, it has stopped now but it leaks from the front of the block, in the area where the radiator connect to the side of the engine, not the top. Please help I'm trying to sell it and would like to get as much as I can without having to spent much to fix
Plugs are located on the side not on front, tray and check water pump seal.

Sounds like your right rear freeze plugs are probably leaking .. but first you need to make sure its not coming from up around the rear of the intake before pulling the transmission . this would be the best way to fix this problem .. thanks jerry holler if you need more.

Replace the bad radiator hose first. Second- get you special formulated anti-freeze dye from the auto store and pour it into the radiator. Third- make sure you got all the air pockets out of your system, cause the coolant system won't work with air pockets in it. Fourth- Check for leaks by looking for the colored dye. If it's not the radiator hose, then could possibly be a pin hole in your radiator. Would suggest replacing all the radiator hoses at the same time while you got the coolant system disconnected, cause you don't want to have to come back and replace another hose in a few months.

One note- many thermostat elements can be installed backwards and while they will function, they don't allow full flow of the coolant like that.
Dunno what the bolt might be for-
Another possibility is a blown head gasket; if these fail between any combustion chamber and a coolant path, it will heat the devil out of coolant and generally cause exhaust fumes in bubbles in the cooling system. You can check for signs of rust on your plugs since the cooling engine will **** in coolant and that will leave deposits. Also check your coolant for any signs of a milkiness and your oil for signs it is turning into hand-lotion.
