My 2001 Pontiac Montana is leaking coolant. It's dripping down between the oil drain plug and the transaxle fluid pan. I can't see where exactly it is coming from. I've checked the water pump, radiato

Any where back there is a head gasket leak, unless it is at the very front of the engine(passenger side). Then it could be the timing chain cover. Use a mirror and bright light, You can find it.

Loosing a lot of coolant

it has to be either leaking somewhere, or it is going through the engine-check passenger floor for heater core leak, or a hose/clamp leak near or over the exhaust. Is the system holding pressure when hot? {squeeze the upper radiator hose when hot, you should feel it as a solid hose, that is not collapsed}. If you have pressure, it is some sort of external leak if you do not see smoke coming out the exhaust.

Reoccuring Coolant Leak - Now major leak

The Jaguar XK8 has a coolant hose on the rear of the engine that is prone to leaking. The leak is typically on the right side, right above the catalytic converter. There is a quick disconnect fitting that has an o-ring in it. This O-ring fails with age, and the coolant leaks from the connector.

2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport 135,000. 3 issues. 1). I have a small oil leak somewhere, I check the levels but never seem to need to add any. I smell burnt oil when I walk by the vehicle after driving. 2)....

Seems that you have some problems that may or may not be related. The one of most concern is using coolant. You need to have the system pressure tested and checked for hydrocarbons in the cooling system. If you have a 4.0 engine, they are prone to developing micro-cracks in the cylinder head. (bad castings). You need to make sure that the coolant isn't escaping into the oiling system or you will loose the engine. Before testing, you can take a really good look at all hose connections, the water pump and the radiator, especially where the end tanks join with the core. Look for dried coolant stains as well as wet residue.
The burning oil smell can come from minor seepage that is getting on either the exhaust manifold or exhaust pipes. Even a tiny amount can smell really bad. The leak does not have to be coming from the engine but could come from the power steering or transmission as well. (all need to be checked).
As for the steering problem, without seeing it, it could be caused by worn shocks, or any steering component that is worn and loose, causing wandering. All bushings and joints need to be checked for excessive clearance or play.

Right Hand Drive 98 Cherokee Sport XJ 2.5L Diesel VM - Coolant Leak

I think the labor to check out the leak is too much.
If a qualified tech. pressurizes the system, he should tell more or less where it's coming from.
Could be freeze out plug.
