88 Cherokee with a straight 6. I have a small coolant leak that appears to commimg from the pass side or center of engine. All the hoses are good, no leaks from them. Just cant seem to find where this is from. Heater core is good. Could it be from any plugs on the rear of the engine? Which ones?

There should be plugs on the side of the engine block. That could be the cause of the leaking.

I looked at the ones on the side, they appear to be ok. There are two behind the flywheel, one on the back of the head. Guess I will have to try and check them too.

It could be the resevoir bottle itself. I had the same problem on my 87, the nipple 1/2 way up the bottle on the right has a tendancy to crack. If this is the problem just order a new one off of ebay (i used 1aauto or something like that, they are located maybe 20 minutes from me). Make sure it has the steel reinforced nipples or you might end up doing it again.
