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.

Why would coolant be leaking from behind the main pulley on a 96 V6 Oldsmobile Achieva?

Sounds like water pump needs replacing The main pulley is near the top of the engine. The water pump is toward the front of the engine. It is possible that water appears to be leaking from this pulley, but there is a manifold gasket right above it. Double check to find exactly where the water is exiting the engine block. My first hunch is a leaking gasket.

My 98 Ford Taurus is not over heating but there is oil in the radiator overflow. However there is no water in the oil. What is the problem?

There are two possibilities, one it is most likely the automatic transmission cooler( in the radiator) is leaking transmission fluid. The other, engine is oil entering the cooling system through a leaking headgasket, cracked cylinderhead or engine block.Keep in mind that the engine oil pressure( normally) is allways higher than that of the coolant system , when engine is running.It is rare but possible that engine oil @ say 40 p.s.i. is entering the coolant system, but when the engine is shut off the coolant system pressure is not high enough to leak into the engine oil .It is not uncommon for(in radiator) transmission coolers to leak oil into the coolant system.

If not the head gasket how is water getting into the oil?

Intake gasket leaking on the inside of engine.

What type of water leak could be on a f150 Triton 5.4 engine. water is leaking and dripping around the transmission hopusing?

this water could be leaking from a heater hose,or the head gasket,or the intake manifold gasket. if it is showing a s coming from inside the transmission housing, it may be coming from a freeze plug. get a mechanic to check it before it gets worse and damages engine, ps: does the coolant level in radiator drop? if not it is more likely to be condensation from running a/c. this will make a huge puddle under car if it is coolant it will be colored red or green.if condesation,it will be clear like water and nothing at all to worry about as that is what it is supposed to do
