Whooooeee!
Freeze plugs are about the size of a silver dollar. They are close to impossible to see, much less replace.
If there is any way you can do so, go to a junk yard, or a place where you can see an old motor that has been taken out of a car.
The freeze plugs are halfway between the top and the bottom of the motor, on the sides, and usually there are 2, 3, or 4 on each side.
Be Blessed.

SOURCE: Leaking Freeze Plugs

usually what will make them leak all at the same time is when coolant becomes weak and freezes in cold weather ,coolant expands and puts pressure against the plugs.

Location of freeze plug on 2001 malibu


I had a 2000 malibu 3.1 and the manifold gasket was leaking. Model years affected, 97-04. Check the recovery coolant tank and if it looks like a milk shake instead of coolant, then you have a bad intake manifold gasket. I replaced mine a few years ago and all was fine. Engines affected are the 2.4-3.1-and 3.5, look very carefully around the intake manifold and you will see it if its leaking! operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks. Because oil will mix with coolant if gasket is bad. Hope this helps you out! Good-Day!

Bad water leak probably heater coil


Sometimes, not the heater coil...this leak usually smells inside the cabin...can you see anti-freeze build up anywhere? These motors are more prone to a water pump leak (needs replaced, inexpensive and not to difficult) or the intake manifold gasket...more costly about $400. for a mechanic to do...you should see some anti-freeze build up around the intake bolts...this assumes that there is no water in your oil...which is far more costly as this indicates an internal cylinder head leak...Could be just a hose leak...a bad radiator cap...or thermostat housing leak, (maybe a cracked housing? Help me help you...do you see any anti-freeze build up anywhere? Hope this helps.

Steam from antifreeze coming from right side of engin


I would check the hoses in that area. It maybe the the water pump bearing shaft seal. There is usually a small drain hole towards the bottom of the pump, that will leak anti-freeze when the seal goes bad. With an inspection mirror, you may be able to see if anti-freeze is leaking from the pump.
