Dex Cool Antifreeze likes to eat seals and gaskets. My Guess! That the exhaust gasket is leaking on the back side of the engine.
It is a common and expensive problem GM products have.
You could try stop leak (NEVER DUMP THE WHOLE CONTAINER IN! It can plug the system up!) To use, when cool, open the radiator cap, and take a teaspoon full of the stop leak and put in ( run engine to full temp) and watch for a week (Did it slow down or stop?), if still leaking repeat the above. Barring this working, it is very pricey to replace that gasket. It worked for me.

When topping up my mini cooper do i put anti freeze in the radiator or just water and then top the expansion tank with anti freeze


For a little top up simply use antifreeze.

If you need to do a coolant bleed and refill, then depends on the antifreeze you are using. Most products require filling the coolant tank with water and then topping up with 50% antifreeze. Use distilled water. Tap water is mineral and helps corrosion.

I noticed that i got anti-freeze leakin from the back of motor on my y pipe

Start with the easy part. Are the heater hoses in good condition ? If there is nothing leaking from a hose can you possibly see if it is coming from the back of the engine? Could be several things maybe intake manifold gasket leaking, hopefully nothing as serious as a head gasket leaking externally, any check the easy stuff like the coolant temp switch and hoses etc. Good luck

I have a 4 cyl s10. and i replaced the water pump cause it had been leakin. right before i cranked it. i put 1 gallon of antifreeze and half of water. then i started it and it started leaking anti freeze...

have the cooling system pressure tested
indicates a rusted out welsh plug in the head anti freeze and water is mixed in the ratio of 50:50 or 1:1 or 50%
so a gallon of water would require a gallon of anti freeze
That figure is the best to prevent corrosion and freezing of the coolant

Why ia my beetle over heating an make the water

You may have a blown head gasket between a cylinder and the water jacket. The overheating can be caused by exhaust gases being pumped into the coolant at that point and the disappearance of coolant can occur on the intake stroke sucking coolant into the cylinder. This will often cause a 'steamy' exhaust; check for this.
