Why is water antifreeze coming out between block and transmission on 1973 350?
There is 2 freeze plugs between the rear of the engine and the transmission. The freeze plugs are in the back of the engine block. Do not bother the big plug that is in the center of the block, That is the cam plug NOT A FREEZE PLUG.
YOu will either have to pull the transmission are the engine to replace those 2 plugs.
If it is motor oil in the anti freeze, then it is either a cracked head, cracked engine block, or a head gasket blown. If it is transmission fluid in your antifreeze, then the radiator is leaking from the transmission cooler ----- although usually that would cause antifreeze to be in your transmission fluid.
There are two line up pins in the back of the engine block, 1 on each side and they fit into the transmission bell housing. They are froozn in the bell housing. You will need to drive a screewdriver between the block and bell housing alittle at a time on both sides until it comes apart. Are you sure you have all the bolts out ???
You have 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9L antifreeze is leaking down right side of block back to transmission case Only leaks after sitting for awhile Help?
How do you fix a water leak between the engine and the manual transmission on a dodge Ram 1500 truck?
You either have to remove the transmission from engine or vice-versa. The engine block has freeze plugs in rear that rust out through time,( lack of antifreeze makes them rust out faster) try replaceing them with brass freeze plugs, there much better then metal. You will have to remove pressure plate, clutch, & flywheel to access freeze plugs.
Why does water or coolant leak from between the motor and transmission on a 1995 3.8 wind-star engine?
What causes an antifreeze leak towards the bottom of the engine block on a 1991 Honda Civic hatchback?
Do you have to remove the engine to replace freeze plug on a 1982 GMC diesel stepside pickup 1600 Sierra 6.2 liter 350 8-cylinder engine?
this is a mess of a question and the answer is NO. why? because there was never a big block 350 made by Chevrolet and as far as a short block 350 on the transmission? who cares rather the motor had heads or not (i.e. short block= crate motor sold without heads). if you asked me if a big block Chevy will bolt up to a transmission that came in a vehicle with a small…
What may be the problem is antifreeze is leaking in the engine compartment up by the fire wall in the middle of the motor but not in the vehicle and it is not coming from heater hoses?
if it appears to be coming from where the cylinder head meets the engine block, it is the head gasket. if it appears near the intake manifold and head, it is the intake gasket (or intake AND exhaust gasket on a straight six or Chrysler slant six). if it is coming from the engine block it is a freeze plug. some v-6 and v-8 engines are common for springing coolant leaks at the intake gaskets.
If you have antifreeze coming out of your oil pan you're in trouble. Knock comes from poorly combusting gas/air mixture in the cylinders. Engines need oil to lubricate the pistons moving in the cylinders and the crankshaft, gears and mechanisms controlling the valves. If you have antifreeze coming out of your oil pan, that probably means you have a cracked engine block because antifreeze circulates in the cooling system, which is supposed to be entirely…
The most common reason would be a ruptured oil cooler in the radiator. Check to see if you have oil lines going to the radiator, if you do, you need a radiator. Also, don't forget to change the anti-freeze because it will be contaminated. Don't forget to check your transmission for contamination also, as transmission fluid also runs on the outer region of your radiator to cool the transmission fluid.
Antifreeze also provides corrosion protection for the cooling system parts , head gaskets etc. ( until the corrosion additives in the antifreeze " wear out ") so even if you live in an area that never freezes it's a good idea to use a 50 / 50 mix of antifreeze and preferably distilled water Water expands when it freezes , so freeze plugs / expansion plugs are installed in an engine block to hopefully pop…
