I HAVE A 1996 DODGE RAM 1500, 5.2L (318) 118000 MILES. COOLANT IS LEAKING OUT OF THE TORQUE CONVERTER PLATE.
IS THERE HOSES IN THERE? WHAT COULD CAUSE THIS? THANKS FOR YOUR ADVICE.

Leaks can travel from source. If slow enough and hard to isolate try pressure test, mirrors looking for anything that hold coolant. Wipe or blow area off dry can help. Gaskets of manifold may not be visible. Freeze plugs may or may not be visible and IMO if that's what you find if one is leaking it suks as that doesn't bode well for all the others,

IT IS THE REAR FREEZE PLUG. HAVE TO DROP THE TRANNY TO GET TO IT. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

Make sure about that. A leak in the intake area can run down the back and appear to be a rear plug.
