1995 Mercury Villager Question: coolent leaks



salemjos, 3.0L V6, Lewisville, TX, December 02, 2010, 19:36

The water leak is coming from the right side of the engine, I can't see where it coming from, not from the hoses, is it freeze plug or a water pump, I thought the water pump is visible from top.

    I believe the water pump is behind the timing cover - with the timing belt. Could be the source of your leak.

    could be a few things - but look at the water pump first as these are known to fail.

    Two hoses feed water/coolant at the rear of throttle body; check these.
