"Back of motor" is ambiguous. If it is from the engine block or from the head or gaskets you should be albe to see it. If you mean from the back of the engine compartment, it is probably a leaking heater core (or leaky hose mounts or valves) in that region around the blower fan. In most cars they are not very accessible components but it is feasible for a DIY with a good instruction. I've done it several times on Saabs and Volvos, it is getting easier once you get a hang of how much you can bend AC hoses and stuff without causing damage... :) Google "heater core instruction" for your car model and I'm sure you will find useful instructions. Good luck!

    OP, please post more information. Try to explain more exactly where you find evidence of a leakage. "Back of motor" is too unspecific, evidently.

    Otherwise I'm afraid it is impossible for anyone to guess what could be the problem.

98 Pontiac grand Prix 3.8, over heating, antifreeze disappearing, transmission slipping, is it possible for transmission fluid to leak into the radiator?

Yes, your transmission cooler is inside of the side tank of the radiator. If your coolant looks like pink sludg, then there is a good chance that you need your cooling system and trans fuid flushed and a new radiator installed.

Rad fan

Well I am assuming you are meaning the radiator fan is not working.The radiator fan motor comes on when the fan switch located in the intake tells that the car is too hot.In which case it closes the circuit and sends power to the motor.The motor could be bad,but the easy way to test that is to run power from the battery directly to the motor and see if it turns on.If it doesnt,then your motor is just bad. If it does, then it is probably your radiator fan switch or the colant temp switch.Both can be bought at Advance or AutoZone.Just remember to wrap the threads of the switch with teflon tape so it doesnt leak when reinstalled.

What 's make the water to leak from the engine when filing up the radiator

The first thing to do is look straight up from where the water is dripping on the ground, on the top part of the motor or radiator, sometimes it is easy to see where the water is coming from and sometimes it hidden. After this start checking the hoses for water, also when filling the radiator, it can be going out an overflow, running down because of filling the radiator to fast. There is probably (maby not) a vent screw on the thermostat housing, which would need to be opened turning it counter clockwise a couple turns to let air out of the system while you are filling the radiator. When liquid starts coming out around that screw ,,tighten the screw back. If water is coming from the end of the motor on the passenger side and you can't tell exactly where, the water pump is located on this end of the motor and can leak out slow or fast or more when you are driving. This is a general idea of what to check first and there is a lot of possibilities. Try to pinpoint the area at least where you think the water is coming from. It can have a leak in the radiator, thermostat housing, freeze plug, head gasket, bad radiator cap and more. Those water pumps do go bad.

Radiator is leaking from right hand corner on a 2008 chevy malibu

Radiator leaking...nothing to do here but replace it. The "new" aluminum and plastic radiators cannot be repaired. Kinda sad considering how new this car is. If you need a temporary fix and it's a fairly small leak there a lot of stop leak products on the market. Check your local parts house not the dealer they will rip you off big time for a new radiator and tell you can't use stop leak but it really does work pretty well, but you will need a new radiator, no way around it.

My 97 buick park avenue is leaking and causing the temp to go up where can i find the leak at?

It could be a number of places. I assume you mean that the coolant is leaking. You need to get it pressure tested to find the leak if it is not "dripping" where you can see it.

The fan on the radiator doesn't always come on, and there is a slow leak of water coming from the fan. What do you think is the problem?

Chances are that the radiator behind the fan has a leak (fan has no water supply so can't leak water). Have the system pressure tested to find the leak. As far as the fan not coming on, it is also likely that the sensor that controls it is sometimes deprived of coolant and therefore not reading properly (because of radiator leaking)
Therefore, have the radiator checked, repaired or replaced, then, if the fan still mis-behaves change the coolant sensor, check fan relay and connections. If water got into the fan motor, it may have caused a problem but the motor is supposed to be sealed and that's doubtful.

Coolant leak under the motor

The leak is probably coming from your radiator's drain hole. Try looking under neath your car at the bottom of the radiator and see if the plug is in (driver side).
