Question about 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix
Flush the radiator a couple times put drain plug back in to fill with anti freeze and the plug was leaking.Took back out tried again but never seemed to filly tighten.Got a new drain plug twisted it in feels tight but still leaking what could be wrong? And I did clean the hole and blew air in to make sure it was clean
Try fitting a flat rubber gasket on the plug before fitting. It is possible the there was one on it but it fell off unnoticed or was cracked and broke off.

SOURCE: anti freeze leaking
Sounds like they installed the pump incorrectly. Gasket misalignment? Started right after the waterpump was installed? Hose clamp not quite tight enough? Just a thought. The passenger front wheel area is just the right area for it to be the pump. I hope this was able to help you. If you still need me, I'll be here. Best wishes to you.

It sounds like the WaterPump is Bad. On this Car I would have a Mechanic Repair this. It can be Really tough to Replace on your Own. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

There are no plugs in the block. You need to leave the radiator plug open and run the engine with a water hose running in the radiator. Keep a close eye on the temp. This will clean the system as good as you can with out major work. Good Luck
