Have a buddy with a '98 4.6 'Stang that is leaking water at the rear of the engine block. Sounds like it may be the rear freeze plugs. Another friend said it was the plastic intake manifold. Did the '98 use a plastic intake manifold? Is there even water in the intake manifold on the 4.6?

Yes plastic. Yes water jacket in the intake and rear heads. Thats all folks, we no little about stangs here.

I do understand that there are little plugs in the back of some PI heads that are forgotten by some people who put on new heads.

the manifold could have gone, but also check the water hose in the valley - if the hose breaks the water will spill out the back and through the bellhousing, and you wont be able to tell from above.
