Bolt on engine block underneath left side is leaking out hot water it's a 2001 Ford ranger it overheated

My car has 170000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

I’m not sure what "bolt" you’re talking about and you don’t say what engine is in your vehicle. My recommendation is to have a professional pressurize the cooling system to pinpoint the exact location of the leak. Allowing the engine to overheat can cause serious damage, so I suggest you have this leak issue fixed.) as soon as possible.
