Leaking Coolant Had a freeze plug blow out on the freeway. Car didn't overheat at that time though. Since then I have to put coolant in about once a week but dont see any signs of a leak. What could be causing my coolant to evaporate? Also, anyone know where all freeze plugs are at on a 1998 Mustang V-6?? Replaced one on back side of motor

I believe the other one is underneath the motor mount, which means you will have to remove the mount of you need access to it..

Suggest you check your engine oil, it should be either light brown if just replaced, and black if you have over 30K miles on it.

If the oil is brown like in color, maybe you have an intake manifold leak and anti freeze is getting into the motor oil (Bad Bad) Check for leaks in the heater core inside the car and see if the rugs are wet.

Check radiator for discoloration in the fin areas and tank areas. Finally check your radiator cap, maybe its defective and you loose antifreeze through the overflow.

Serpintine bely slung off cold weather cause freeze plug to blow out


Change the oil right away, just in case coolant did somehow get into the crankcase.
Those rubber plugs should not leak. Did you clean the block good where the freeze plugs goes? It needs to be free of rust, scale, and dirt so the plug seals good. When you get it sealed tight you can monitor the coolant level to see if it leaks somewhere, like the head gasket. That is the only place coolant could get into the oil. Or if you have the coolant system pressure checked, you will find out if there are any leaks like a head gasket. If the system holds pressure, you are good to go. That means the gasket is good, and since no overheating, there is no or little chance you would have a cracked block or head-another way that coolant could get into the oil.

Opened the coolant resovoir and the coolant was frozen


Please add antifreeze on your coolant to prevent this situation. A frozen coolant is dangerous to your car.

Leaking antifreeze


Sounds like a freeze plug popped out, or at least leaking.

Two possiblities; a blown head gasket, or a freeze plug leaking. If possible take it to a trusted shop and have the pressure checked on the radiator, they can tell you if your radiator is stopped up, or the freeze plug is leaking, and if it's blowing back in the radiator when you remove the cap then it's a blown head gasket.
