I have some coolant leaking from the engine it is droping out of the rear side of the engine. The hoses feeding to the water control valve and the valve itself have recently been replaced. Anything else that might be causing this?

Thanks!!

Look up inside the bolt holes in the bell housing, if you have coolant residue there then you may have a leaking "belly pan" which is on top of the block in between to 2 cylinder heads. Intake manifold must be removed to replace it.

Make sure all of the hose clamps on the auxiliary and heater hoses are tight, check below the expansion tank for leaks as well.
