I noticed that i got anti-freeze leakin from the back of motor on my y pipe

Start with the easy part. Are the heater hoses in good condition ? If there is nothing leaking from a hose can you possibly see if it is coming from the back of the engine? Could be several things maybe intake manifold gasket leaking, hopefully nothing as serious as a head gasket leaking externally, any check the easy stuff like the coolant temp switch and hoses etc. Good luck

How do you change the thermostat on a 2004 grand

Is it malfunctioning? If so when you replace it, make sure you get one that is rated for fail safe (if it fails, it stays open. First you need to drain the coolant, then diconnect the hose clamp of the big black rubber hose going into the thermostat. (the hose is on the right hand side of the engine as your looking at it) then remove the bolts holding the thermostat down. Pull the old thermostat out, clean off any gasket residue off, ensuring not to get any into the engine. Don't use the premade gaskets, as they fail rather easily. Use a hig-temp silicone RTV, and put a constant bead around it, while circling the bolt holes as well. Put the new unit in, and tighten the bolts. some RTV should seep out a little bit. When you make your gasket, dont use to much, an 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick is fine. Let it cure overnight. Replace the hose, then refill the coolant. Good Luck.

96 accord cylinder 1 misfire tried changing plugs,wires,cap and roter, as well as taking injectors out and cleaning. still #1 misfire

You probably have a vacuum leak at that intake runner. If there is nothing obvious like a vacuum fitting on that runner with a cracked hose, then try spraying around that runner's gasket mating surface with some aerosol carb cleaner, if you hear the revs change you have a bad gasket. Failing this, possibly low compression on this hole?

Have coolant leak coming from rear of engine i was looking to find the location of the freeze plugs this started after getting hot otherwise running fine

It is not the freeze plug but the o-ring gasket at the back of the 23 radiator lines back there, there are 2 that you have to replace, Easy fix, but a nightmare to get to. The o-rings are nothing special, reg off the shelf. It wold be a good idea to take fotos before you start so you can see where everything was when you started, then it should all go back. the intake, dist coils, all the pipes, have to be moved out of the way. You get to clean up that mess back there while you are at it, Good luck.

Coolant leak

Hello **** B. First double check the hose connection for the leak, it can drain to another connection & appear to leak there. Second, yes there is a gasket on the pipe connection to the block. To replace the gasket, park the car in a location for least 5 to 6 hours to cool down mabe longer. Have the gasket replacement, a tube of gasket sealant, 2 gallons of antifreeze, a drain bucket, and a very large rag or rags. Remove the hose, catch the fluid in bucket, remove the pipe, clean the old gasket area, apply gasket sealent, attache gasket, mount the pipe, tighten all mounting bolts a 1/2 to 3/4 turn each until torqued downed evenly, and attache hose. Fill reservoir, with radiator cap off, start engine and add coolant to radiator until full and you see fluid flowing. Apply cap & check for leaks. Easy???????? Good Luck.

1996 buick roadmaster keeps overheating: already replaced the thermostat, water pump, heater core, heater control valve, hoses and anti-freeze

A shotgun approach to repairs can really rack up the bills.

If your symptoms are loss of water and you have replaced the thermostat, you more than likely have an issue with steam. And that steam more than often comes from a bad head gasket. Most head gasket gasket failures seem to be confined to the water side initially, but let it go on bigger damage will occur.
You can buy a litmus test strip to dunk in the coolant. It will indicate if there are exhaust residuals in the water and thus a gasket failure.

However it may just be something simple, given that you have just about replaced everything:

have you given the radiator a good hosing inside and out?
is the radiator fan running when it should be?
