LEAK BEHIND FLY WHEEL UNKNOWN

2000 Chrysler Cirrus • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 160,000 miles

Chrysler cirrus 2000 2.5 leaks water down out fly wheel plate, no visual where it comes from everythings dry. It jus pours out the plate. Is there water flow inside the bell housing on the block driver side. Could water be leaking out of there where I can't see.

There's a tube with an o-ring on each end that goes from the back of the water pump housing on the passenger side to the thermostat housing on the driver's side. Look closely under the thermostat housing first. If there's no sign of leakage there, suspect a corroded core plug at the back of the block. The service manual doesn't show them all, but it's common to find one or two there. The transmission has to be disconnected from the engine and lowered to access those plugs.
