Howdy Miles Truex,

It'd be nicer had you IDENTIFIED your make, model and year

The 3.8 non-turbo isn't particularly intuitive... but hey...
Why bother giving free volunteers a break...

So... What you need to do... is look it up yourself.

Lets say (just for yuks) ... yours is a
popular USA market vehicle.

You can go up on ROCKAUTO and look up the entire engine's collection of "SOFT-PLUGS"... aka... "FREEZE PLUGS".

Why wont my car wont hold water or anti-freeze and i cant figure out where its coming from or even going?


its possible that the engine is burning the coolant which would not show either by causing the oil to turn a milky color or leave a puddle were you parked. it may be just a small problem at the moment not causing the car to overheat. have the head gaskets checked for damage with a head gasket test. it could also be a possible intake gasket leak causing the coolant to be burnt but not leak into the engine oil. just somethings to check out.

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

Anti-freeze leaking from either the freeze plug or intake gasket. I need possible solutions. Tone Mac


Without knowing what year or engine size is, I/m just guessing??????? But the 3.1L engines are FAMOUS for intake maniflod gaskets leaking. Look where the intake bolts to the heads. A freeze plug is in the block. Freeze plugs dont leak unless you have been running pure water or weak/cheap anti-freeze. They will rust out from behind and its BIG BUCKS to replace them all.
