Under what conditions? If it's when the A/C is on thats just condensation. No problem there. But if its mixed with antifreeze, that's different. So just water or is it a mix?

no antifreeze just setting still motor off

Hmmmm. If it's just water and the radiator is full and not leaking it must be condensation. But why.is this constant or only under certain circumstances?

its a hole lot of water and its not stopping and the radiator dose lose water

Well scratch the A/C from the possibilities. If the vehicle is running good other than that it's possible the freeze out plug is rusted out.

is a freeze plug between motor and trans

covered by the trans

Your motor is mounted sideways so the water could be draining down from most any where. Can you trace the source of the leak? Is the engine running good other than the leak? Any water in the oil? Could by chance be a radiator leaking and the water traveling down to where the engine and transmission meet? I know that is a lot of questions but I am trying to narrow it down.

where the water is coming from is dry around the leak can not see no other place water come from checked every where just from bottom f plate no water in oil engine runs good

Well that's good news that there's no water in the oil and it runs good. The only thing I can suggest is to fill the radiator and have it pressure tested to see if you can see it pissing out in a streem. I still thinking it maybe a freeze plug.

is there a freeze plug in the trans bell housing

Not in the transmission that I know of. But now I have another idea. The radiator also cools the transmission fluid. MAYBE there's a hole in the transmission cooling line that runs through the radiator??!! Check the transmission fluid for water. It's worth a shot.

would that make water come out the trans

It's a bit of a stretch but if the water is coming out of the transmission it's a possibility. To recap. The radiator is losing water. There's no water in the oil. The water is pooling where the engine and transmission meet. The transmission fluid is cooled by the same radiator. The coolant could be leaking into the transmission and over flowing to the ground. Check the transmission fluid level.

there is no water in the trans oil and the radiator was lower and still leaking transmission fluid ok

Oh man I'm going to have to get back to you. I need more time to think about this one.
