Default Leaking coolant near firewall down near trans

Low Coolant light came on. Then added Coolant. Two days later light on again and smell antifreeze. Finally put pressure tester on it and got antifreeze to pour out near the transmission underneath. Not sure where this is coming from. Please tell me this isn't the Head Gasket. No smoking or smell from the exhaust. It seems to come from high up the firewall, yet is doesn't seem to come from where the heater hoses go through the firewall unless they go in lower down. Please help.

First place to check is always the water pump. That's the usual coolant leak issue. I assume you've looked and it's further back than that?

Needless to say, don't drive until it's fixed. If the engine overheats the aluminium block warps easily and is wrecked. A $10k problem...

Thank You for your response. I called myself checking Water Pump. Is there any chance that coolant would run down the block and out the back? I did have the car on ramps (in front only).

Could be heater core or those lines running to it

There are. I am hoping that is the culprit too. I found a thread where someone lifted manifold up on Range Rover and a crossover was leaking. Same engine different vehicle. I sure hope thatís it. Will update tomorrow as I am putting it on lift and will pull manifold to see. Fingers crossed.
