Yo Pastor Josh,
Welcome to our Big Bronco DIY Community!
The most common places where coolant may be leaking at engine rear are:
- Damaged radiator.
- Damaged water pump.
- Loose/damaged radiator hoses.
- Loose/damaged heater water hoses.
- Damaged heater core.
- Damaged engine gaskets.
- Damaged radiator coolant recovery reservoir.
- Internal engine coolant leak.
Hose Cracks, pinholes or splits in a radiator hose or heater hose will leak coolant. A hose leak will usually send a stream of hot coolant spraying out of the hose. A corroded hose connection or a loose or damaged hose clamp may also allow coolant to leak from the end of a hose. Sometimes the leak may only occur once the hose gets hot and the pinhole or crack opens up.
"Freeze plugs leak due to rust. They are located:
Three large per side.
Rear of the cam journal
Two small in the front by the cam journal.
One medium size in the top back of the lifter valley
One threaded per side.
One threaded in the front by the dizzy hole. "
