My 99 Sierra eats up antifreeze like crazy but it isn't leaking into the oil and I haven't been able to find an external leak. I also have a misfire problem on my number 3 cylinder but I don't know if it's related or not. I have tried using Bars Leaks gasket sealer and it hasn't worked. I did find one of the heater hoses barely hanging on the firewall but I fixed that and it still uses antifreeze. By eating up antifreeze I mean to say I have to poor a gallon in about every 2 weeks.


Have you rechecked all the hoses? If it has an electric fan, is the fan working?\015\012\015\012I had a similar problem and it was a combination of a hose that only leaked under pressure. If you have scaling at the end of a hose, suspect ... 1999 GMC Sierra

I have a 1995 dodge caravan with a 2.5L 4 cylinder engine that I have replaced the water pump on, I still have a antifreeze leak that I cannot find which is around the back of the engine.

I would also like to know if I do away with the metal pipes for the heater hoses and utilize rubber hoses instead would there be any problems and could this be the problem leak that I cannot find

Can a bad intake plenum leak antifreeze into the engine on a 2002 century 3.1?The computer code was misfire #1 cylinder. Complete tune-up done, same problem, new#1 injector, same problem. Now the coolant is gone, no leak on ground. Shop says blown head gasket but I have been told to have them check the intake plenum by a retired GM shop tech. They tell me it can't be the intake plenum as "that only handles air, no coolant involved with that." HELP!!! Scott


I see a lot of lower intake gasket leaks on these but usually you get an external leak or you'll find coolant mixed with the oil, not a misfire. Upper plenum is dry on the 3.1 and just bolts onto the top of the lower intake. We usually apply pressur ... 2002 Buick Century

I have a 2004 GMC Envoy 2WD 6 cylinder 4.2 liter engine The car has 150,000 miles and we were told that rear heater leaks and it will cost for the replacement part $1,240.00. Is there a way to repair this for much cheaper.The smell is like antifreeze so we have to do something.The dealer offered to reroute so that heat would come in the front only. There's got to be a better way.Thanks


If you are handy you may be able to take out the rear heater core and take it to a radiator shop to test and repair the leak,,,other than that you can probably find a used one for alot less ,last you can do what the dealer suggested,just block off th ... 2004 GMC Envoy

Took my 2004 nissan sentra 1.8l to dealership to get catalytic converter changed due to restriction. Well they said it was the timing chain needing adjustment. Well that didn't fix it. So they now put new catalytic converter on and it runs great except on start up. It runs rough on startup. I have antifreeze in the oil and comming out of the tailpipe and I am throwing the p0300 code random cylinder misfire. Could they have caused the head gasket to leak by adjusting the timing chain?


HI. The random misfire will be the result of compression leaks, due to the damaged head gasket, in this case. The leaky head gasket is allowing for the coolant to be introduced into the cylinder chambers, thus, disrupting normal combustion and compre ... 2004 Nissan Sentra

2001 mercury cougar, master cylinder ran dry because slave cylinder below is leaking at the firewall. I filled the master cylinder and tried bleeding the clutch at the transmission until fluid stream consistent. I still have no clutch. There is a rubber hose that runs from the bottom of the master cylinder to the firewall (in to slave cylinder), immediately below that is where it's leaking from (slave cylinder out). The clutch was working fine prior to the leak. Do I need to replace the c


No, you don't need to replace the clutch itself.\012Don't be surprised if the slave cylinder replacement doesn't fix it.\012Could be the master cylinder. ... 2001 Mercury Cougar

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
