On the bottom of the engine on passenger side water is streaming out. Is this a freeze plug? If it is, how do I replace it?

Iam sorry but your my eyes I can't see where the leak is coming from and the information I have so far I can't say for sure where the leak is. Your going to have to get in there and see where the coolant is coming from. Could be the water pump or a hose.

Facing the car on left side it is leaking. It is too tight in there to reach hand inside to find exact spot. It is leaking clear water.

Hi guys. Do you have red or green antifreeze in the cooling system? If you do, the clear water is likely condensed humidity from the AC system? Do you only see this leakage when the AC is running? Is the coolant level dropping in the reservoir?

All of the coolant has leaked out so it's just water running out. I add water when I'm trying to find exact spot the leak is from.

It is on the passenger side but I'm not sure if it's from the back. I don't think so but I'm not sure.

It is leaking on the side of the engine - not the back of the engine.
