The car heated up to day the temp was about 104 out side and the A/C was running and there is a leak from the back of the motor or the front of the transmission. This hapen to my son who was the driver when I got there I filled up the raidator and the only place that I could see that was wet was the front /bottom of the trans/ bellhousing what is back there that may be leaking I look from the top of the motor and from the front but didn't see any other place that where it was wet the leak looks more to the passenger side of the car thank you.

This engine uses a plastic intake manifold that is notorious for cracking. It also have a rubber heater hose that runs under that manifold. Any leak in this area will flow to the rear and leak from the back of the engine. The system will need to be pressure tested and it may require using a mirror to see the leak. Dorman makes an aftermarket replacement manifold for a reasonable price
