    well its hard to tell so ill give you guesses

    1 could be a loose or bad filter

    2 oil pan gasket

    3 could have threw a rod and there could be a hole in the side of the motor

    again just guesses so if you can provide any more info i can pinpoint you in the right direction a little better

I have dexcool pooring from the bottom of my 2005 pontiac grand prixs a/c compressor? does the A/C compressor have rad fluid in it?

The dexcool isn't coming from the A/C compressor ! More then likely coming from the engine . No the A/C compressor doesn't have coolant in it , has refrigerant ! Sounds to me like your engine has a problem ! Your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop !

Antifreeze leak from rear of engine on pontiac grand prix

Rule out leak from water pump. What engine is it - 3.0 3.8. Could be intake manifold gasket. Have the cooling system pressurized, about 12 lbs. and look for leak, bubbles.
check oil for coolant in oil also. Possible head gasket leak.

Do you have to lift the motor on a Pontiac grand prix 6 cyl. to get to the back freeze plug that is leaking oil?

if you have a freeze plug leaking oil you've got major problems....freeze plugs or expansion plugs are for engine coolant only, they are there in case the coolant freezes it will pop out one of those plugs before it cracks open the engine block. at least in theory. you should probably start with the valve cover gaskets and then do upper and lower intake gaskets...

84 Grand Prix. Air only blows from the defroster vent. Will not switch to dash or floor.

you probably have a vaccum leak.check all the hoses for a vaccum leak under the hood around the engine.

My grand prix jerks around 80 km/h. Also it jerks when trying to accelerate at times. This problem is intermittent at the moment. This problem started after the mechanic worked on an oil pan leak, front...

Did he weld it? If so, did he disconnect the battery?

I had a 1990 Cadilac Devile that jerked around 35 mph and it was missing on a cylinder because the fuel injector was not firing.

I wonder if this is happening to yours.

The solution, in my case, was another ecm because the old ecm was not firing the fuel injector.

You can check this by using a fuel injector tester that lights up or by listening to the fuel injectors click with a stethoscope.

04 Grand Prix oil leak

if it is not leaking then it is being burned by the engine, how many miles go by before you need to add oil?, if u are adding more than one quart every 1000 miles u have piston reing problems and or valve guide seal leaks. U won't see any smoke in most cases unless you are really going through the oil, like 1 quart every 300 miles.
