The below statements are basically saying the same thing:
J'y vais
Je vais y aller
So why isn't the "Y" in the same place?

In the present tense, the y goes before the conjugated verb--vais in this case. In the future proche--vais+aller-- it goes before the verb in the infinitive (aller). The past tense also goes before the conjugated verb--j'y suis allé--(I went).
