1998 Isuzu Rodeo. My ac stopped working and is leaking coolant. Having a hard time finding the leak. Pulled the timing cover off but don't see fluid coming from the water pump.

Go to the dealer and have them put a dye in the radiator. Run and drive vehicle. Take vehicle back to dealer they will use a UV light and determine the location of the leak. I have done this several times to multiple vehicle and it works all the time. The dye will glow.

Sebring overheating 2.7 V 6

This is hard to say without a test. The test is going to be a pressure test of the coolant system. You hook up a cap that has a pump and guage on it and pump the pressure up to the rating on the original cap. Then you watch for leaks. If it was head gasket, you would most likely get coolant in the oil, white smoke (steam in the exhaust) or bubbles in the radiator. If it was the water pump you would have coolant dripping out of the "weep hole" on the pump shaft.

06 sebring is over heating and there is alot of leakage under the car

It sounds like you are leaking coolant from somewhere, or your water pump is out and it is pouring water(coolant). See if you can see where it is coming from. In the meantime, you should definitely fill the radiator up with coolant to keep it from overheating and causing catostrophic failure. This needs to be fixed ASAP or the damage could run well into the thousands of dollars.

What is the easyiest way to get to the freeze plug?

Check the water pump before you go for a freeze plug. Look on the under side of the water pump shaft and you will see a weep hole. If coolant is coming out of this hole your water pump bearings and seals have pooped out. A freeze plug is not likely for the year of vehicle you have. Also grab the pulley of fan that is attached to the water pump and wobble it. If it moves at all your water pump is probably the culprit. There should be absolutely no play in the water pump shaft.

Radiator toyota camry 1998 v6

You may have

- a coolant leak somewhere, comes out when the engine heats up and pressurises the radiator. Camrys do develop a crack in the plastic radiator top tank, which can be hard to see if on a seam. Another place which leaks is under the intake manifold, which is not visible. There is a test, called a "leak-down" test

- thermostat stuck closed, preventing coolant circulation

- a leak through a head gasket from a combustion chamber to the coolant jacket. This will quickly cause overheating, and sometimes causes white bubbles in the radiator neck, like dry ice. There is a test kit available for gases in the coolant.

Last night I saw a light saying check engine could you explain the problem ,that>s all it says it was working fine all of a sudden that just came on also I am seeing water leaking from some where...

The check engine light may be from a low coolant condition. the green fluid inside the car is probably from the heater core that is leaking. so you should check the coolant level and you will have to verify the leak.

Over heating

Would have to suggest water pump at this point if all else has failed.

Water/Coolant pours out of engine as soon as I put it in.

It has popped the freeze plugs out and you won't know the extent of the damage it has made till you replace the freeze plugs. You never i mean never pour water into a vehicle around time for freezing weather
