Water pump is close to that area. I agree, it's more likely a water pump leak.

Water will pour out from a dislodged frost plug. You most likely have a leak from the water pump or intake manifold gasket. Also, check your heater hoses and water pump by pass hose for leaks.

Could a freezeplug blow out?


freeze plugs ( welsh plugs ) rust out and will leak water under pressure . they are replaceable with some difficulty-- working space required
water pumps will leak out a small hole under the housing behind the pulley to stop the leaking pump seal from putting water into the bearing-- replace is the only real fix as reconditioning is almost as expensive as a new pump
to find the leak have a pressure test done on the cooling system as it reveal where the leak is
if you have plastic radiator tanks then they are known to crack or even come loose of the cores
a pressure test will reveal all this

What's the first few things to check when my heater isn't giving me any heat. Car is a 1994 Chevy Camaro.


you have air in the system ,if you have not done a radiator clean ,the put radiator flush in the radiator then go for a short run.about 5 miles then go back and drain the radiator.now remove both radiator hoses.fill with water it will pour out as you do so..if clear refit you hoses.fill will a 50/50 mix of antifreeze. now put your heating on full open your window .with your expansion bottle cap off ,run your engine on tick over till the water starts to head up.then refit the cap.this is done to bleed the air out both in your heater core .and the radiator.

My 1993 lumina apv is leaking coolant from behind tension pulley


Check if the water pump needs replacing. Sounds like the pump, but will have to be checked.

1994 honda accord ex pours antifreeze from bleed holes


If the antifreeze is running out of the hole in the water pump housing, you need a new water pump.

Where is the drainedge for the radioter


For a 2001 Buick Regal GS 3.8 Liter, Supercharged engine:

First, let engine cool some. Second, locate small drainage hole at the bottom left/drivers side, of the radiator. From the bottom of this small drain hole, go straight back toward rear of radiator, then up about 1 1/2 to 2 inches up. (Have a drain pan or pail handy, to catch the old antifreeze.) You'll find a dark colored drain nut. Use a larger, correct sized socket ratchet wrench & loosen this fitting a turn or so, counter clockwise. Old antifreeze will begin to come out the bottom drain hole. The more you loosen the fitting, the faster the fluid flow out. I wouldn't remove the drain plug completely, or you'll loose control of the draining flow rate.

I just changed my anti-freeze just last week. I also changed the 2 large radiator hoses & smaller 2' overflow hose at the same time, as long as I was doing the job. They had never been changed before. I also used new hose clamps & a small packet of "radiator hose grease", from Autozone.. I drove the car up onto front car ramps to make it easier. I used safety jack stands for extra care. " You-Tube" shows some, "how to videos", that are helpful.

The old hose clamps are difficult to get to. (You'll need a few tools, some time & patience.) To get to the upper clamp, near the right/passenger side of the of the car, near the battery, I removed the outer serpentine belt & tension pully. I then removed the factory installed spring tension clamp, with the help of an adjustable battery pliers. The bottom of this hose wasn't too bad to get to. On the left/drivers side of car, remove black air intake box to access upper clamp. Remove the black metal brace bar, the will allow access to the air intake black box.

I also changed the small overflow 2 foot long hose & 2 clamps, that goes from radiator cap area, back to the overflow white plastic tank, close to passenger firewall. I removed the overflow tank to clean it out as well. I drained the fluid & changed the 3 hoses & clamps. I then placed all removed parts back where they belong, including white plastic overflow tank, tension pully & outer serpentine belt, air intake black box & metal diagonal brace, contacting air intake box. I flushed the system with some Prestone Radiator Cleaner & clean water. Start car & get up to temp., then run for about 10 minutes. Let cool, then drain again. I flushed my car at least 2-3 times after this, until the drain water ran clear.

The best price on a 5 year/150,000 mile anti freeze, came from Wal-Mart. I then mixed about 50/50 with Distilled water, as suggested on the bottle. All went well & no leaks! I took my time and did a thorough job. Good luck!

1994 Camaro making a noise


Yes, it could also be the tensioner or idler pully making the noise. I would remove the belt and try to turn each pully by hand and at the same time try to move side to side to locate this.

Water leak


the round opening you are speaking of is known as a "freeze plug" a concave "lid" shaped metal plug inserted in the block to prevent the engine block from cracking during extremely cold weather; any shop can easily replace this plug but, have all of these plugs checked just in case another one is about to go

Water leaking behind oil pan on a 95 chevy camaro-3.4L


If I rember correctly, there are two freeze plugs in the back of the block, behind the flywheel. They generally dont go bad often because they are pretty much protected. As that angelo guy said, more likely a hose or rear of intake gasket, but you have to look, from here I can't see it!!!
