Freeze plug,, a plug located in the engine block. 2 are at the rear between the motor and transmission housing, not a fun fix by any means. the tranny has to be removed and the new softplug, (usually brass) has to be tapped back in,,

1996 Chevy cavalier Over heats smells like exhaust coming from coolant reservoir any suggestions ?

It sounds like a head gasket failure or a possible cracked cylinder head.
The engine combustion exhaust gasses are leaking into the coolent system and causing the overheating.
Have you noticed a loss of coolent with no apparent leaks?

Try taking the coolent header tank cap off and placing your hand over it creating a seal. If after a few seconds you feel pressure building and when lifting your hand slightly you'll hear the pressure release as a hiss confirming either of the two I mentioned.
Only do this if the temperature is low or you could burn your hand.
If the engine has overheated badly it could of warped the head needing it to be skimmed if it's aluminium. Likewise if the engine block is aluminium also but them two are only likely if you cooked the engine so I would say firstly it's a failed head gasket.
I hope this helps you out.

I've got a 2003 F150 5.4L with 114K. Recently had the 100K service done at about 105K (plugs & boots, fuel system flush, coolent flush, tranny flush). Wife left for grocery store and said truck was...

Code P0155, 1155, will get those code's with vacuum leaks, I have seen that many times here at my repair shop, many times customers come in, after they have done a tune-up, as you have, and same problem, check for vacuum leaks, more so on top of engine to the back, by fire wall.

1984 F150 302 Had oil pan gasket and both valve cover gaskets

you have several points to check!
the dip stick tube has a "O" ring seal at the bottom where it fits to tranny.
a reverse switch on tranny & the shifters selector shaft has a seal that may be leaking !
there are the cooler pipes from cooler to tranny [in & out] plus pump seal to the torque converter [leaks out between engine & tranny bellhousing] & then there are the drive shaft or shafts seals
so wipe it all clean & park it in a diffrent clean spot!
some will only leak when its runnung due to tranny,s internal pressure!

Car is over heating and leaking engine coolent

Look for wet spots after the car sits for a while. Follow these up to the engine. You will find a leak. The leak should be fixed.

Red temp light comes on. i look at resivoir and it is empty , i fill it with coolent and the light go,s off and then the coolent leaks out again , i can see it dripping from the bottom of engine


You probably should take it for repair as soon as possible. It sounds like your lower hose may be leaking. If you overheat the engine it could cause you a lot more problems:)
