Ford F-150

On a 1989 Ford F150 with a 302 where would a coolant leak be coming from when it appears behind the water pump?

It's the block heater. I had the same problem.

Your coolant pump is behined the fan, you will have to replace the water pump.

That is the water pump weep hole. If coolant is coming out, the water pump has failed.That is the water pump weep hole. If coolant is coming out, the water pump has failed.

HeyHoward==If it is coolant the engine will overheat quickly and the engine will smoke white smoke. The head gaskets will need replaced. It can be normal condensation if it is pretty clear water. Good luck, Joe

Year, make, model and engine info would help but, the intake manifold gaskets are known to leak coolant on many Chevy/GMC engines.

If there is coolant coming from it and it isn't a hose.

Probably difficult to see but it has one, it's behind the lower portion of the water pump pulley. If you have coolant dripping out from behind the water pump pulley, it is coming out the weep hole, the seal is shot and probably the bearing also. Time for water pump replacement, don't wait.

is coolant leaking from engine?or is it leaking from water pump and running down engine and appears to leak from engine

the water pump gaskets start to leak (right or left, or both) and the coolant runs down the block to the oil pan/ block joint and appears to be coming from the oil pan. follow the leak closely, and you will probably see that it is coming from above the oil pan in the front.

I assume you mean smoke and water are coming from the A/C vents. I suspect you are seeing steam and coolant. You probably have a heater core leaking.I assume you mean smoke and water are coming from the A/C vents. I suspect you are seeing steam and coolant. You probably have a heater core leaking.

If you mean engine coolant is getting into the car, the heater core is leaking coolant causing the coolant level to drop and that causes the engine to over heat.

usually coolant leaks come from bad gaskets... or a bad water pump.. i would say drain the system and run water through the radiator (do NOT drive with water in the radiator, your engine will surely overheat!) and see if you can spot where the coolant is coming from... if it is coming from the engine block then you might have bad gaskets.. if not then it's the water pump.

That water is from condensation which is normal. However, if it is engine coolant you have big problems.

Sounds like your coolant is low or your coolant level sensor could be sticking closed after the coolant was low. with the dexcool coolant it becomes thick and cause the sensor to stick closed.

its moisture coming from the wood i think

Often it's a rotted pipe or a leaky hose or a leaky water pump. Usually is't best to look at it and see where the coolant is coming out, then repair it.

The coolant will run out of the timing cover from behind the crank pulley.

You need a head or intake gasket. Coolant is getting into engine. Head more likely.

If you can't see where its coming from, it may be a cracked head, or a bas headgasket. Also, when you add water to the coolant tank, it doesn't immediately go into the radiator. After the car sits a while, the radiator starts to cool, creating a vacuum. Water/coolant is then pulled into the radiator from the coolant tank.

That is the water pump weep hole. If coolant is coming out of it then the water pump has failed.

A failed seal. For example if the fluid is coming from the water pump weep hole, the water pump has failed.

Small pinhead size holes behind the water pump,eventually breakthrough the cover and voila you get coolant mixing with engine oil.
