'94 Crown Vic

This C/V is leaking Anti-freeze at the bell housing. Anyone have a clue. Could it be a freeze plug?

It is probably the heater hose that connects under the front ot the intake manifold to the back of the water pump. That is the most popular place. It run down the top of the block and drip by the bell housing. IIRC, it requires that you remove the intake manifold to replace it. Not a bad job for a mid level DIY'er with a decent assortment of tools. It is also a good time to do other maintenance like clean the EGR ports, clean the throttle body and the IAC as well as replace the thermostat, antifreeze and spark plugs along with any hoses that looked a bit distressed with age. You can also get a good look at all the vacuum hoses and tubes for the PCV system and replace them since they tend to fail or plug as the vehicle gets older. You might also want to clean the MAF in the air intake while your hands are dirty with it. You will of course need about $50-$100 in parts and solvent to complete what is about 4 hours labor for a DIY'er if all goes steady and well. Your CV should run much better when you're done.
