Antifreeze won't stay in reservoir. Driving along fine and all of a sudden indicator was where is should have been but only getting cold air. Drove for another 10 minutes and it shot from normal to high-overheated. Then the heater kicked in and the amount of heat it threw out was above the normal amount. Checked the antifreeze reservoir and all fluid had leaked out. Replaced the antifreeze and it leaks out with exception of about an inch in the very bottom of the reservoir. You can see it

Not holding antifreeze, found puddle of oil and antifreeze under the car. reservoir was empty, added antifreeze to reservoir ....still leaks
You likely will not like my answer but what you need to do is get underneath and actually look very carefully for the source of the leak. There is no place where both coolant and oil can leak at the same time. If you find oil in the radiator or cool ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Antifreeze leak my 01 lincoln ls leaks antifreeze but the strang thing about it is that it doesnt leak all the time.

What would cause the antifreeze to back up into the reservoir and overflow out the cap. The temp. is normal, I removed the water pump, it appears to be in good condition.Replaced the termostat. flushed the system but when the car gets to normal tempature the heat works for a short time than cools off, and when I shut off the engine the antifreeze backs up into the reservoir and slowly rises to the top and overflows.
It appears that you have a leak in the gasket system or in the internal engine system.\015\012\015\012You'll need to get the system pressure tested to identify the leak, once the pressure in the system is too high, even though the heat is ... 1997 Ford Taurus
Hose for antifreeze reservoir 1997 saturn SL2?

Car is leaking antifreeze and over heating even though there is antifreeze in the reservoir and is smoking after I turn car off. I bought a bottle of stop leak for radiator's and even added that and it still continues to leak. A friend of mine says it could be a water pump. I dont understand how that could be if it is leaking antifreeze. Pleae advice
The water pump is what pumps the anti-freeze half of anti-freeze is water so its called a water pump. but to me it sounds like theres something slugging up your radiator theres a small drain on the side if nothing comes out then its clogged, if it do ... 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix
1993 Camry v6 le overheating and fluid in reservoir boiling and smoking on that side only. Nothing seems to be leaking from radiator, but I'm having to add antifreeze daily. Once antifreeze is in there it runs without a problem for at least a few hours, then overheats again and the antifreeze is gone. I don't know what to do I have little to no money to fix it and am a single mom trying to do this on my own. Any DIY suggestions?
Hi Lil Cutey, The proof that you have a leakage is the fact that you need to add coolant every day. The leakage is somewhere else in the cooling system other than the radiator. Look at the places where the radiator pipes join to the engine to see if ... 1993 Toyota Camry V6

ANTIFREEZE LEAK I'm losing about 1/2 pint of antifreeze over a two or three week period. After I fill reservoir I loses it sporadically and after it gets down about one inch it stops losing fluid. The leak seems to be toward the front of the engine and a bit to the right. It never seems to get low enough to cause overheating although the low antifreeze light does come on.

Engine Coolant Thanks for such a quick response. I just want to make sure, the engine coolant and the radiator are two different reservoirs. The one I am asking about is the engine coolant container. It is a white plastic container much like the windshield wiper fluid. So, I do not need a special engine coolant, I can use the same antifreeze (Prestone 50/50) I put in the radiator, in the engine coolant reservoir, right? Thank you.

My 3000 gt overheated on me and when I pulled over a small hose was spewing antifreeze. This hose one one of the two connected to the coolant reservoir. Not the one connecting to where the radiator cap is, the one running away and down. There is a black cylander right underneath the coolant reservoir that has a small hole that perfectly fits that hose but I don't know what it is and don't want to hook up the wrong thing. My water level is extremely low but not empty. What's that black cyland
Hi, the coolant reservoir has two hose connected. The ipper one is going to radiator, and it is the return hose. The lower one is going to water pump.The hole on the lower side of reservoir must be the water pump hose. ... Mitsubishi 3000GT
My Malibu dumps all of its antifreeze only at times. Seems to happen when im idling for any longer length of normal time. But after the reservoir is filled again, there are no leaks. It seems to come from around the area of the reservoir, but cant pinpoint where. Is this a thermostat problem?
Sounds like a thermostat,but as the car is eight years old it would be wise to start with that ..... ... 2002 Chevrolet Malibu
My antifreeze is leaking when I drive the car. I've had it diagnosed and the mechanic says I need a new water pump and antifreeze reservoir tank for my 2003 Jaguar, 6c 2.5 x type. do I need to get housing along with the water pump? Or,could it be another less expensive solution?

How do i replace the antifreeze reservoir bottle on 98 plymouth breeze? it cracked and wont hold any antifreeze...
There usually pretty straightforward. Most bottles are attached with a bolt, usually located towards the bottom of the bottle somewhere and on the opposite side a bracket usually retains it. Then of course you have the overflow hose that needs to be ... 1998 Plymouth Breeze

Car is running hotter than I like. I just had the heater core, radiator hoses, reservoir cap,replaced, put a 195 thermostat in it, new antifreeze and had the guy check if the radiator was plugged. All was good. Has original water pump but no problems out of it as far as leaking or sound. No milky oil and no bubbles in the reservoir. No white smoke from the tail pipe. And bled the coolant system like the book suggested so no air in the system. But still it is running to hot for my liking. It has

Running Hot There is no leak from tha radiator but the gauge is displaying that it is running hot. I put antifreeze and water in both the radiator and the reservoir. But after driving for a few miles it still says it's running hot. The reservoir is empty. What could it be??
You need to have a pressure check don on the radiator. this will pinpoint the leak if you dont see any leaks externally it could be a head gasket or a manifold gasket but the simplest thing to check is the thermostat. it may stuck in the close pos ... 1992 Chevrolet Suburban
