Freeze plug/ coolant
I have a 1972 Ford pinto with a 2.0, it hasn't ran in
years, I can get it to turn out and found and oil leak
that I fixed, but now when i dump coolant into it, its
leaking out of transmission (pours out), I am
wondering if there is a freeze plug or something
that is right where the tranny bolts to the block.
Wonder no more there are 2 freeze plugs on back side of motor where transmission is connected trans will have to be removed or moved back enough from motor to get to plugs.
There's a transmission fluid cooler inside of the radiator. You'll see two metal lines bolted to one side of the radiator or possibly the bottom of the radiator. These are from the transmission. Sounds like the cooler inside of the radiator is rotted out and coolant is going through the transmission fluid cooling lines into the transmission. I'm assuming it's an automatic transmission. Hope that helps! Jim
