Could be from several areas...best way to check is to pressure test the system when it is stone cold...you will find ALL the leaks this way.

Could be the rear heater hose leaking..or one of the freeze plugs on the side of the block..or the worst...the freeze plug in the back of the block...needing to pull the trans to replace it

it's the one on the dipstick side of the engine and towards the back where the hardline connects to the flexible hose on the return side of the heater. If that is leaking it will drip where you have the problem. Also possible the supply side is leaking, but I have no experience with that one as far as leaks.

i finally took a closer look at things and coolant is pooling up on the block near the engine mount, on the dipstick side. but i cant see it leaking out of anywhere? there's the bolt for the engine ground. . . there's another bolt directly next to it, but it's not leaking anything if its a plug bolt. .

wall: the 2 hoses that go through the firewall to your heater, are part of the system and they have gone out on me this year in Sahara. They fatigue over time. They never get replaced in a standard hose replacement . Check them both for integrity- Especially where the hose clamp tightens the hose- that is where my "breach" occurred". you may also see some spash and smell some coolant on that area. that would explain the rear-ward coolant position. Caution: there are differences in the hoses between tii and 2002, and parts guys rarely realize this. The hoses are about $20 each. dealers still have them . Justmake sure they know which isde hose you need and what year/model your car is. that all makes a dsifference apparently. They made different sized hoses. there is in and out. driver's side and pax side. they have different "kinks" to tell difference, and length is diff. too. Finally, the grommet that protects the hose from the firewall metal is no doubt going to crumble to pieces when hose removed. You can try to find one that big..... i ended up buying a table leg rubber cup ( to protect floors) and eyeballed that it was correct size for use. cut out middle of the rubber and used the continuous circle surround as a grommet for the new hose. works like charm. Not OEM: but try finding one of those firewall grommets when you want to compete the job.... See if that is your problem- it surely might be someone's problem now, or soon to come. Good luck.

The left side of the car is always the left, no matter where the observer is standing. "driver side" is relative; it's the right side in Japan, England, etc.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
