TO make a long story short...

I went out to warm up the XJ monday morning after a night of playing in the 30" of snow we got. Noticed it wasnt warming up.. ie no heat. Soon after temp light came on(damn XJ's with idiot lights). Looked under neath and there was coolant all over the ground. That would explain the over heating and no heat. So i added almost 2 gallons of anti freeze and started it back up. Then I noticed its coming out of the bell housing. At the bottom of the bell housing there is a gap you can see up in. It was definetly coming from in there, and when you revved the engine it would come out of the starter as well. Im assuming its from it dripping down on the flywheel and getting splashed around. SO after seeing that my first thought was fawk I cracked the block. I go back in the house and pout for about a half hour, then go back out. Started it up.. warms up fine, getting heat and lo and behold no more leaking :confused: Drove it home(was at my parents) and still no leakage. Start it up this morning no puddle underneath and no leakage after starting it..... SO WTF I never seen coolant come out of the bell housing... and then stop on its own.

BTW its a 95 XJ 4.0 spd..

Any thoughts

Is there a way it could be leaking into the bell housing by running down the block. Isnt the bell housing sealed all the way around except for the bottom by the inspetion plate

i know but youd think it be if were dripping on top of the bell housing some of it would rund down the side of the housing. Instead its all coming from inside

The thing that gets me is i doesnt leak now. I dont see a freeze plug resetting it self, and if its coming out of the bottom of the bellhousing... thats just weird.
