The engine was starting to overheat so we stopped to check it out. There was water and pressure leak coming from behind the waterpump area. Couldn't see the leak but could see water spray. We got the car home, turned off the engine and noticed there was no pressure leak from front of engine anymore, but looked under the car and coolant was coming out from back of engine, in the center. Filtering between the bell housing and engine. What could this be?

That engine has a valley pan under the intake manifold that has a water pipe running through it. It also has a plastic intake manifold that often cracks and leaks coolant. You need to pressure test the cooling system and follow the leak to it's source. You may have to use a small telescoping mirror to see everything.
