Hello again, I have a coolant leak and seem to figure out where it is coming from, with the front of the car lifted off the ground and engine running a slow driping leak appears.
It seems to come from inside the bell housing, I am worried that it might be a cracked block I will attach a pic. I was just wondering if anyone has had a leak here before and if it was just something simple, BTW this started a couple hours after turning on the heater. Ironically I was getting ready to do a coolant flush the same day the leak appeared.

The carpets are not wet. The heater hose i cant see any leaks around it, but there is a spot right under the cowl where the hose attatches, i am thinking maybe from there but it is hard to tell. i will try to run it again and put a light close to it and see if does leak.
since it would be higher up do think the coolant would seep through the between the bell housing and engine?, because i dont see any coolant trails going around.
you were right there was a heater hose connected to side of the engine right under the intake manifold that would only leak when pressurized and indeed there was a view hole on the bell housing that i haven't seen before where the coolant leak into.
