My car is leaking antifreeze. But I dont see it on the ground. I have to fill it up every once in awhile. Awhile back I flushed it out and put napa orange antifreeze in it. Now its temp is raiseing alittle bit?
and
when I start my car up. It looks like its runnin at 600 rpms. When it useally runs around 1000rpms. But when I put it in drive it starts like hopping. And makes a bumpy type sound.
and
when i`first got the car. When I turned it on. I couldnt even tell it was on when it was runnin. It was really quiet. Now its kinda loud
and
there is a very high pitched sound comeing from the rear end. My friends say its the fuel pump. Like it makes the sound when im sitting still.
and when I turn my wheels. I can hear a squelin sound

Okay, lets focus on those cylenders. Have you removed the plugs to see what condition they are in or if they are getting spark? If not, do that first. If they are dry and have spark, you will need to check the injectors for those cylenders. I will explaine how that is done after you let me know about the plugs.

Let me know.

If you have a way to safely raise and secure the vehicle, you can reach the rear plugs from under the vehicle. (Much easier on a lift.)
