coolant leaking between block and trans

OK, this is my problem. I have an 02 focus dohc. I have a coolant leak that I cannot pinpoint. It is seeping from the rear of the motor, by the trans from the bottom. It seems to be coming from between the block and the clutch bell housing.
I already replaced the thermostat housing, so that should be good.
Thanks
vinnie

I was going to say that it is your thermostat housing... but since you said you had that replaced I have no idea. Coolant is supposed to go through cluth, I think, to cool things down, get under the car wipe all the coolant off and see where it starts.. that is what I will say...

Cheack your heater hoses at the back of the block leading into the firewall.

If one or more are leaking, coolant can poll at the back of the block and trickle down...
