    I am leeking cooliant and it is not coming from the radiator. I have to add cooliant about once a month. I am not over filling it. I had someone look at it and told me it was one of the freeze plugs. I just wonder if it is even worth the money. I have 128,000 miles on it.

1999 Grand Marquis mercury oil on spark plug


If its running rough & you see clouds of blue/black smoke from the exhaust, that is a blown head or gasket or cracked engine block. Ck your anti freeze for oil mixture & oil for anti freeze. Try a compression test If all is well? Ck the valve cover gasket for leakage above that plug into the cylinder w the oil. Good luck Frank M.

1999 buick freeze out plug


Sounds like you have a leaking freeze plug, you will need to replace it, hopefully it is rusted and leaking and did not pop out due to freezing temp, some of these plugs are in spots thatcan cost alot to replace, the plug itself is a few dollars and new coolant . the cooling system needs to be drained because when plug is removed all coolant will run out , the plugs are all over the block, this is designed to pop out plugs and not crack block if there is not enough coolant and to much water and it freeze in cold weather the water expanding pops plugs and not cracking block, some are behind ****** or bracket and so on, you will need to locate the leaking one and see if it is something you want to do. good day

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...

Need freeze plug replaced on 1999 nissan sentra 4 dr sedan. What would it cost where is the plug?


there are several, and it depends what has to be remove to access the plug. Be prepared to spend a lot of money on these, as usually they last the life of the car, unless you have not used good quality anti freeze. If one is leaking, others may not be far behind.

Leeking antfreez by intake gasget


Check that the antifreeze is coming from either a freeze plug which is round and about 1-3/4" in diameter, or the head gasket.

If it's a head gasket, it will have to be replaced.

If it's a hose leading to the intake gasket area, replace that part.

If it's a freeze plug, then a rubber expanding one (with a screw in adjuster) may substitute for the original metal one.

Good luck on this repair.

IS THERE A FREEZE PLUG BETWEEN THE BELL HOUSING AND ENGINE ON A 1999 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE AND IF THERE IS WHAT KIND OF LABOR AM i LOOKING AT/


Yes. Generally there are two on the rear of the block. What most people do not understand is that the "freeze plugs" are not put there to serve that purpose and won't save a block during a freeze up. The actual function is to allow removal of the "stuffing" used when the block is being cast, in order to keep the internal water jackets open. They are actually called welsh plugs.
You are looking at removal of the transmission and transfer case as well as the flywheel Cost of that depends on local labor rates. The freeze plugs themselves are rather inexpensive. Being fairly inaccessible, when replacing those particular ones I always use brass plugs made for marine engines. Even though externally protected by the bellhousing, they generally fail from the inside out, making the brass plugs a good option.
good luck

150,000 mile service for a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE??


150,000 you should have the brakes checked, check brake lines, tune up (spark plugs, wiers, air filter, ect.) rotate your tiers replace if needed, oil change, be sure to change your cabbin filter to, most people don't know that their car has a cabin filter. The shop should tell you exactly what they would do to it.
