2005 ford freestyle leaking coolant really bad is it my head gasket

Asked by Oct 08, 2017 at 04:15 PM about the 2005 Ford Freestyle

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

My truck had a very small leak I noticed a small amount
under my truck. Now it is really bad basically pouring into
the ground and emptying within 10-15 mins, I seen where
the leak was coming from but I don't know what the name
of the part was. It is the front of my engine right hand side
"when facing it" almost on the side of the engine. I haven't
noticed coolant in my oil thank god. But could this be my
gasket and is it a lot to repair it ?

If its not the water pump or leaking down from a radiator/heater hose or thermostat housing and actually coming out between the cylinder head and the engine block its a head gasket or a crack in the head or if lower down from head, a crack in the engine block or if its between head and the intake manifold then it is a intake gasket. Take a picture and use a picture editor to add a pencil arrow point to the place it is suspected to be leaking from and add it to your next question/answer here on this post, thanks It will help us to know for sure, may need to add some lighting to back ground point toward area at an angle to avoid shine back and yet to add some light on that spot.

If this is a V6 then you have a housing that the water pump bolts on

Its your water pump, its driven by the cam (well one of the cams). Must be leaking from water pump and making its way out there. A cam seal will leak oil out there if it were to be bad.
