Damn that's leaking. Hope it's just a hose. Check all around that housing. Good luck brother. And yes I have 2 spare motors and 4 svtf.

How did the O-ring look on the housing? I know sometimes the inner lip the gasket sits on gets broken, even on newer ones so the water seeps.

I know your probably checked, but you never know, kind of grasping at things here without looking at it. It's clearly leaking from somewhere.

the oring looked good, the housing is a year old , the coolant level now is below the housing and its still leaking so its either a hose or freeze plug, but the hoeses on the back of the motor are hard to get in there and see
