You need to get it checked out by someone with mechanical knowledge as it may be a freeze plug or cracked pump housing, burst radiator, just try to see where the water is coming out if you can while you pour it in.

99 GMC Yukon is pouring out water from behind motor and under transmission, looses 1 gallon of water/coolant in 5-10 minutes. is it the freeze plug in the back, or what can it be and how can i fix it

It might be a freeze plug, but I bet it is an O-ring on a pipe back there under the manifold that is leaking, It is a job to get to, but it can be done. Either way, you have to take a bunch of stuff out of the way. There are about 10 little pipes running around back there and one or two big ones, about 1 1/4 dia. Check it out.

Overheating. coolant pour out of overflow when added

ryder2011, An overheating situation where the coolant is pouring out of the overflow usually means that you have a bad head gasket. Combustion gases are getting by the gasket and heating the coolant in the water jackets by the cylinder head. The coolant heats up very fast and escapes from the overflow bottle. Having the head gaskets replaced should resolve this problem. Good luck with this.

You will have to get under there to see exactly where the coolant is pouring out from, while someone is pouring it in. That's the only way to determine exactly what is leaking. Might just simply be a hose.

Water pouring out when poured into radaitor

You have a bad casting plug in the side of the engine. A lot of people call them freeze plugs because they pop out if the coolant freezes. They also rust through. They are driven in place and the size can be looked up at the parts store. You will want to change all of them . Lee
