f 150 fuel throtlebody

I have a 1996 ford f_150 and I just found water comming from the throttle body.I kn ow that it is water cooled but I do not know why the water flowing out when I turn on the Heater.The water is comming out of two holes between the water inlet and the water outlet. Can anyone tell me what is going on with the throttle body?the engine is a 302

Are you stating there is a leak around the thermostat housing area?

It is not leaking water around the thermastat.I have since found out that there are two 1/4 in freeze plugs in the throatle body. I now need to find out where I can buy them,the Ford dealer did not have any in stock.

Take one to any parts store for a match.

Or, if the Ford dealer showed a part #, have them order it for you. Should only take a few days.

I went back to the dealer and got the part number,then went to another FORD dealer and found the freeze plugs. It took about an hour to remove the old ones and replace with the new ones.
Thank you for your assistance,it was greatly appricated.
