Check your hoses where the heater core comes out of. If the clamps are old replace them. Check around your intake manafold and your heads. Check your dipstick for a milky substance at the bottum of the stick. Is your thermostat in the rear of the engine. Check this too. Also if you just replaced any freeze plugs check all of them even the ones you just replaced. They may not be in correctly.

Where is freeze plug on 1995 geo tracker


old post.
This is really a suzuki G16 engine question
thats ok,
The G16s are used on Suzuki's and Trackers
Vitara's , Esteems, no others world wide.

I have all the photos and books on those cars.
real books and all parts lists. on them , graphics tool.
the freeze plugs (core plugs on all over.)
IN 1996 only one engine, G16b.
But all G16 blocks these are the same.
sides on all G16 base blocks.
2 left side 1 above filter, one just to rear of that, they are huge.
have to be blind to miss left side, (left means same as left car door)

the problem here is there are 2 engines in 1995, then one in 1996
the heads on both engine are NOT THE SAME>
the head is 8v and 16valves heads
and the 16v has freeze plugs in the top ,next to the cam. inside under valve cover !!!.

why not say where the leak is so we can narrow the search. or state the JOB?????????

i have photos of all parts in any G16.
there are no freeze plug in any 8valve head.
but the 16v yes !!!
the 16v head small inside plugs, if leaking turn the engine oil to milk chocolate fast and worse of driven. (just undid worst)

the blocks are the same, both engines, not pistons,
there are no front or rear engine block freeze plugs only side plugs 4 total.
and sure the right side under intake man will be hard to see. look under car right side to see em.
2 left easy to see and 2 right harder.
the right engine block has 2 freeze plugs one in easy view center , under intake man.
and one tucked behind that water manifold that can leak too.
now the last plugs
the 16valve head has a front freeze plug behind the cam cog wheel. and none on the rear of the head.
so 1 front and 3 inside, top.
My guess, G16b has 8 plugs total.
G16a has 4.

things that go POP in the night (cold night)
the rear water outlet fitting (head) does explode every time one runs this head on pure water, frozen, ask my how I know that, and what clueless girl did that,, heheheheheheheheh

WHERE IS FREEZE PLUG OF A MOTOR


why ask this? if they are bad , the leak antifreeze, out side engine
or inside. both are obvious. green on ground, or engine oil
looks HORRID, like milk chocolate shake,
answer, there are core plugs (aka, freeze misnomer) are all over the engine, google freeze plug, under image. bingo.
on side of engine, (no engine option stated) on front and rear, in the heads, some have them on top of heads , inside the engine.

my guess someone said, check the freeze plugs. right?

Leaking antifreeze


freeze plugs pressed out by coolent not suffencient to stop freezing at your local temp. Reinstall freeze plug and look for more that may have been forcedout. common locations are sides of engine, and there are some in the very rear against the firewall.. head or engine removal neccessary.

Coolant leak from rear of engine in bellhouseing area


Sounds like you have a freeze plug that has rusted out. And it is located in side the bell housing behind the flywheel. You will need to remove the transmission and the flywheel to gain access to the freeze plugs. There are two of them at the rear of the engine above the center line of the crankshaft. One to the left and one to the right.

Leaking antifreeze fluid from under the engine.


might be a freeze plug leaking, or heater hose. there are three freeze plugs on each side of engine and two in back of engine. most likely if any of them are leaking, it will be the one behind the starter on the far right rear of engine block. they have also been known to leak around the front and rear of intake, where intake, head, and block meet.

Frost plug locations for 1991 gmc 3500hd


i think you mean freeze plugs, any way there will be three on each side of engine block below exhaust manafolds. to get to the one on the right side clear to the rear of engine, the starter will have to be removed. if its the one in the middle, motor will have to be jacked up and motor mount will have to be removed to get to it. also there are freeze plugs on back of engine block, behind flywheel if one or both of them are leaking trans. will have to come out to replace them. also chk. the rear of intake were intake, and head, and block come together, same in the front could be leaking there also. as far as your truck not wanting to start i will need a little more info to help with that, like is it gas or diesel? if its gas does it have spark? can you hear fuel pump run and relay click? i will try to help the best i can but i need the info.

Antifreeze


Do this only if the engine is cold.Set the heater on.Remove the coolant expansion tank cap , place a suitable container under the radiator area , Look under the radiator (bottom rear side) for a plastic screw and loosen this by hand . Move swiftly not to get wet.Remove the bleeding screw on the top radiator hose.Flush the system with a coolant flush solution if the coolant is really dirty.Refit the drain plug , refill anti freeze (check with your parts supplier for the recommended ratio for your area(or your dealer)and top up with water.Run the engine and close the bleed screw once water comes out and replace the cap.Warm the vehicle up and remove the cap when it has cooled down again.Check coolant level and top up.Reset the heater off(if its summer there.)
