Why do i have antifreeze leaking out from d my pullies?

You probably have a water pump that is leaking. There is what they call a weep hole at the bottom of the pump housing and this is where the coolant would leak out on to the front of the crank pulley which would possibly get in the belt pulley grove of the crank pulley and spread it around when the engine is running. You could have a leaking thermostat gasket or upper radiator hose which connects to the motor that is leaking. There is no antifreeze which circulates in your pulleys nor are they filled with antifreeze.

I have a 2000 pontiac montana and its making a load noise by the belts and its leaking some kind of oil and the water temp is maxed out

its probably the water pump pretty simple to change locate the large smooth pulley on top of the serp belt take out the 4 bolts take off the serp belt remove the smooth pulley the water pump is under the smooth pulley take out the 5 bolts on the water pump and the water pump will come out on the new water pump the gasket will only go on one way make sure you turn it the right way so the holes line up use a little gasket sealer to hold in the right place replace with new pump on the tension pulley there is a 3/8 square hole that you can put a long handled socket or breaker bar in to loosen the tension on the on serp belt so you can streatch the belt back over the pulleys i only wish the thermostat was as easy to change.

I bought a 98 Dakota, it started over heating, I changed the thermostat, and when I went to flush my radiator, it was plugged. Can they put something in the radiator to temporarily make the car run good?...

Drain the coolant when it is cold and pull off the upper and lower radiator hose. Put a garden hose in the radiator neck (after removing the radiator cap) and turn the water up gradually and let it run for 15 to 20 minutes or until the flow is constant. If your water pump is not noisy or leaking and the pulley is not wobbling then you should not have to replace the water pump. You may want to flush out the block with water also. Please rate me on this answer.

97 chevy 1500 coolant leak

It is the water pump most likely,they have ,what they call a weep hole in the bottom under the pulley,so they will leak out to let you know to change them right away.If it is on the top coming from the intake area,it would be the intake,they are also bad to leak,but look at the pump,under the pulley.

Small leak in a 98 jeep grand cherokee near the bottom pulley on front of engine..what is it?

If its leaking coolant, likely it is coming from the water pump above the lower pulley and running down to there. Look carefully and use a light.
If leak is oil, the pulley seal is leaking.

1998 plymouth voyager3.3l has leak at water pump behind pulley

First of all, changing thermostat will not fix your water pump leak. Obviously defective pump or install. Be sure to take a closer look, in case it's a loose hose in the area. Leaking from behind pulley, usually calls for new pump. What I would do though, is take it back to original repair shop & question them about any warranty that may apply. Some have 1 yr. some have limited lifetime etc. If you can obtain a copy of work done, the part number on the pump should give you what you need to call (or shop can call) and inquire about that particular part number as far as warranty goes. (I'd make the call myself, ahead of time, so I know.) That way, perhaps the shop who originally installed it may feel some kind of obligation to replace it at a reduced fee, as in labor only. ($27 for new pump) . Be nice, play a little dumb, it may help, and if they want you to pay the whole shot over again, go elsewhere for estimate.
