There are really only two possibilities there. One could be a leaking heater hose. That would be the good news. The other would be a rusted out freeze plug. That would be the bad news since it may be difficult to replace it where it is.
Sounds like a broken or torn vacum hose, pcv valve clogged, or bad Idle air control motor. Did you spray carb cleaner on vacum hoses or near the plastic intake., and did the motor rev up or down? Those codes represent a lean condition which means most like a vacum leak or clogged idle air motor. Sometimes the intake manifolds crack or the intake manifold gaskets crack. FInd that vacum leak or inpect iac motor
Out of coolant? Got a leak? May just be liquid in the radiator, switch off, turn it all upside down (emptied) for 30 minutes, then right way up, leave for an hour, then plug it in and switch on to see if it has helped to get fluid in the compressor. Cant hurt, sounds pretty bad really, sorry!
really this could be one of several issues, does the vehicle run Hot, are you having to fill the reservoir with water or coolant, there is a hose that runs from the cap (overflow hose) to the reservoir, in addition to the upper and lower hoses, finally the water pump. the water pump is equipped with weep holes, which allow fluid to weep out when the pump is bad. finally the thermostat, hopefully one of these can solve your issue, good luck!
best way to go about this is clean it off first and for most. you cant really tell where its coming from if the stuff oozing out likes like the rest of the motor. so start with that and go from there. honestly though any car ive ever bought used ive had to tighten everything up and most the time it stops leaking so it could very well be your problem. if it was your rear crank seal to the mess would really more over be inside your bellhousing and dripping out of your inspection cover.
