Hello & thanks for being here to try to help!

I have a 2000 Explorer AWD 4.0L FI SOHC 6cyl with 110K miles. Does *not burn much oil at all. Replaced water pump, bypass hose and thermostat a month+ ago. Had a minor leak at thermostat housing with new slightly thinner gasket. I since then repaired that. I am now seeing water leaking from the bottom center of the bellhousing at a good steady drip when running. All hoses look sealed including to the heater core and transmission lines. I wondering if you have had an experience with this type of problem and if so how would you proceed with getting it repaired.

Many thanks in advance,
