What is causing my 90 pontiac firebird 3100. v6 to be pouring antifreeze out the back side of the motor

Most probable would be the intake gasket. Make sure heater hoses are not leaking.

I have a 2000 audi a4 quattro with a 1.8t motor something blew apart and caused it to drain every bit of the antifreeze outta my car so what's a antifreeze I can get fast to put in it so it's not sitting...

Any antifreeze that has ethelene glycol in will do . For freezing conditions a mix of 55-60% anti freeze will be required . Castrol concentrate is a good one and mix it before pouring in the radiator. So for a 10 litre system mix 6 parts of antifreeze to 4 parts of water. Work out your requirements like that.

Antifreeze coolant

You add antifreeze coolant to the radiator. Wait until you car hasn't been driven for a long while or until engine has cooled off. Then open your radiator cap. Before adding anything you will have to drain some from your radiator first. Near the bottom of your radiator there is a drain plug that you turn to let out what you already have in there. Once it drains you close it back. You can buy premixed antifreeze that you just pour straight into the radiator until its full. Remember to check the antifreeze level the next few days after you car has cooled down. Some of the coolant will remain inside the cars coolant system lowering the level of coolant in the radiator. Remember you can get scald with boiling hot water opening the radiator cap if the car motor is hot. caution!

I have a 95 chevy tahoe v-8 engine. When u put antifreeze in it, it leak's out the back part of the motor... Then when i start it, it pour's out of the front of the motor. Is it the freeze plugs? How hard...

I dont think its the freeze plug, there might be a hose there in the back, or if you had a block heater then that might have come loose, but where in the front does the antifreeze lean?

I just flushed my radiator and bought two gallons of antifreeze. I have a 1998 GMC Sierra 2500 4X4 454 7.4 L. How and how much antifreeze/water do i put it. I have no owners manuel.

the final ratio is half water and half antifreeze, since the engine will have water left after the flush add antifreeze first thenwater and check it with a hydrometer or tester

Antifreeze resevior is empty

if you are using straight antifreeze a 50 50 mixture will be fine, most parts stores now carry a premixed as well that you can simply pour straight in.
