The back of the head is where the temperature sender unit it, the heater hoses, and the head gasket.
I hope it is one of the first 2.
Use a mirror is you have to.
And you can also borrow a cooling system pressure tester, to make the leak more obvious.
Just make sure it is filled with water, because a pressure test won't show a leak if there is only air coming out.

How come when I start up my 1999 Cadillac deville I smell antifreeze real strong through the vents ? Is something wrong?


The heater core may be leaking / faulty - not familiar with Cadillacs, but normally it is located inside the car, behind the dashboard (glovebox) on the passenger side (near the blower motor). This may be something for a mechanic to diagnose if you are not familiar with automotive heating/cooling systems.

Overheating when I sit idle.


Over heating the engine is a serious concern. With the hood raised you should hear the motorized fan turn on just behind the radiator as the engine requires additional cooling.. If you look in from the rear of the radiator you should see the fan blades.

This electric powered motor operates on a thermostat and when the engine temperature rises this fan should come on. I'm assuming from your description that when driving and air is flowing through the radiator as the car travels the engine is nor overheating.

Check fan motor thermostat, check fan motor and check wiring.

Motor engine cooling fan only runs as engine temperature requires additional cooling.

Oil leak front engine timing chan


1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

My 1998 jeep grand cherokee is running hot and leaking water, is the water pump bad?


well first i would check all the water hoses in the engine compartment for cracks and leaks then check around the radiater for leaks if you don't see any water leaking from the hoses or the radiater then try to see if you see water coming from the water pump behind the cooling fan if the water is leaking from behind the cooling fan then it is most likely your water pump

Have water leaking in front of motor behind a c compressor.checked and replaced water pump,still leaking.is thier a freeze plug behind a c compressor?


You don't say which engine you have but if I were you I would get a cooling system tester and test your cooling system. Very simple to use you just remove your radiator cap and install the tester and pump it up to the PSI listed on your radiator cap. You may be able to rent one. After you pump it up watch for the leak and pinpoint it. Not knowing which engine you have, I'm guessing the 4.3 liter. I believe there is a heater hose connector in the right hand side of your intake manifold. Those are common for leaking. I'm not sure where your compressor is located. Also you may have an intake manifold gasket leaking which is common. With the tester you should be able to trace it down. Also it is possible that your new pump could be faulty or it it possible that you didn't get the gasket surface area clean?

I have a water leak near the front passenger sideof the motor its above the oil pan near a freeze plug but its not the freeze plug that i can see is there another freeze plug maybe behind the motor mount?


If the car is at operating temperature and the water is cool then it could just be air conditioning condensation.. Air conditioning units are usually located at the passenger side of the engine. If it is cool water it is nothing to worry about.

Why would my coolant be leaking out behind the moter


There are several cooling lines that run through your vehicle, Cooling you engine block, oils, and there are two lines that run from the back of the motor to inside your cab.(these line run to your heater core, which is the unit that makes your heater work) one of these line could need replaced. Have a machanic check them because its not to costly but tricky to diy.

Coolant Leaking


Well from what I can tell is that your intake manifold is leaking at the back of the engine, what you can do clean the engine off with some degreaser, put some leak dye in and check it with a ultraviolet light, you could also pressure test the system with a proper tester from stant or snap on. It might be a cracked hose or cracked head, have you overheated the motor before?
