I have a 1999 Plymouth Voyager van that is leaking engine coolant. upon closer look, it appears to be coming from an oval hole on the block of the engine, located on the passenger side near the back of the block....
coolant streams out even when engine is not running

The oval recess in the block is called a freeze plug. It is an expansion plug designed to protect the engine from freeze damage. Many mechaics agree that the so called "long term" coolant, should not be used too long. the coolant corrodes the plug from the inside. This can be a DIY, but as much as I like to do it myself, I had a mechanic do it for less than $100. This was 2 years, 26,000 miles ago, and have had no more problems.
