I think you got a head gasket leak,,,if its buring coolant the only thing that will burn it is a leaking head gasket,,its probably leaking into the cylinder and burning it and leaking externally where you see coolant on the tranny,,,replace the head ... 1990 Chevrolet Cavalier

My 2006 ford taurus has a loud grinding noise coming from one of my pulley's. I have the squeakey sound too, that I think is coming from the tensionor pully that is common with ford's. The grinding sound comes and goes gets really loud and then quiets down as the car warms up. But even when the car is warm, if I shut it off then back on the grinding comes back. I am not getting a water leak so i don't think it's the water pump (yet). none of the pully's look like they are loose or wobbling. Any
The tension pulley on the Ford products is famous for wearing out. If you are positive about where the noise is coming from, then the only real solution is to purchase a new pulley from the dealership. Installation involves removing tension from the ... 2006 Ford Taurus
My 1998 grand am wont start :( my uncle think its the engine..he thinks that the engine has a water leaking in it...I dont know i really dont ! :( i just want my car fixed immediately.
Pull the oil dipstick if there is only oil then uncle is wrong. if you overheated it really bad then it could be that though. depending on the mileage and service done already it could be the starter or timing belt failure. ... 1998 Pontiac Grand Am
Losing water Ok I am losing water form my radiator and resivor tank. The obvious places i have checked (i.e. water pump, thermostat housing, hoses and no obvious leaks and there is no water in the oil (thank God). I am noticing the more than usual ammounts water comming from the exhaust. The vehicle is a 1998 Chevy Silvarado 1500 with a 5.7 (350) with about 148,000 miles. It does not run hot when the water is at normal levels. and tough i dont really drive it alot of miles per week about 150 or
Probably is a leak in the head gasket between the water jacket and the cylinder or possibly a cracked head. Either way, it's not cheap even if you are fixing it yourself. Rick ... 1998 Chevrolet C1500

I'm assuming it's a 3.0L engine. Could you please confirm? If all else fails, most rad shops have a dye they add to coolant, then use a blacklight to shine all around and pinpoint where it's coming from, as the dye glows, when hit with the blacklight ... 2001 Ford Taurus
Engine noise I have a 1997 Wrangler 2.5L. When running there is a good bit of noise that appears to be coming from the water pump. The rest of the engine is tight and clean. There are no oil leaks around the main seals and no water leaks around the water pump or shaft. When I take the serpentine belt off and start the engine the noise disappears. The idler pulleys seem to be fine as well. I am thinking the water pump needs to be replaced. What do you think?
You guessed it, the shaft bearings are shot. ... 1995 Jeep Wrangler
I am leaking coolent underneath my engine. I have replaced all hoses, water pump, and as well my res. I cant find where the leak in coming from. I am thinking it is my head gasket, but I dont know.
Good Evening, the first thing you need to do is park your car in a dry spot that way you can get a general area as far as reference where it could be leaking. Things it could be are a heatercore, a freeze plug or a headgasket or an intake depending o ... 1991 Buick Century
Ok on my 95 bmw 525i I had a hole in radiator hose and repaired it but my bmw still overheated. Replaced thermostat and it still overheats. Fan comes on but top of hose is hot. After a few mins. of driving it gets really hot. I dont see any leaking so im not sure if its my water pump. Any ideas before I go ahead an replace my pump?
You should make sure there is no air in the cooling system. With the engine COLD open the bleeder screw, take the cooling cap off, make sure it is full, put your mouth on the neck and blow until a clear stream of antifreeze comes out the bleeder. T ... 1995 BMW 5 Series

My 1994 Tracer is overheating, I have changed the thermostate. The radiator had a couple leaks so I plugged them and now there are no leaks. I think the water pump is still pumping and I get an check engine light now. Could it be a bad water temp sending unit or just that the water pump has eroded down far enough that its not pumping water. Car has 219000 miles on it.
You may have to flush your system out. just take and loosen the nut on the bottom of the radiator. get all of the radiator fluid into a container. then connect a water hose to the top of the radiator. with the drain plug still out, turn the hose o ... 1994 Mercury Tracer
I have a 1993 chrysler lebaron that leaks antifreeze out of both sides of the motor onto the ground. I just had the tube that comes out of the water pump replaced since it had some corrosion along with the o rings and the necessary hoses. I don't think the water pump is leaking because the leaks are on both sides of the motor. Can a pressure test be done with the manifold off so I can see where the leak is coming from? What else could be leaking since the only things down there are the water pum
Go to the auto parts store and get the good stop leak.....get the one in the round tube (silver). Your already 450 dollars into it. If it is just small leaks, this will or should stop it. This stop leak also lubes your water pump, and is good stu ... 1987 Chrysler LeBaron
My malibu 03 heats up could the radiator be clogged? i changed the spark plugs plus the water pump, the upper hose and the bottom hose, and the thermostat i dont think there are leaks in the coolant tank, but the coolant tank does have a burnt smell to it.... i havent drained anything yet either could that be the problem?
You may have air trapped in the system. Air can get sucked into the system if you have a loose hose or a bad seal on the radiator cap or the over fill tanks cap. Try to see if your vehicle has any bleeder valves. Should be at the highest point in the ... 2003 Chevrolet Malibu
I have put freon in it seems to cool untill it all leaks out i have noticed my floorboard is full over water i dont think its the heater coil cause it doesnt get hot. My question really is where can i find the drain hose for starters im going to see if it is clogged but i cant find it dripping anywere outside the vehical. Drip from condinsation normal runoff
The evaporator is located inside the boxed housing on the firewall incorporating the heater core as well\015\012The lower section of the box has the drain which can be clogged as well I do think. Go under the truck with a coat hanger and try to ... 2002 Dodge Durango

Hi, I have an Subaru Outback 1999 model, its done just over 200,000kms. It has some issues and I dont know whether to sell or get fixed. I have been told by a mechanic that it needs a replacement engine, compression gone on one cilinder, still runs but a bit lumpy. Is close to needing the clutch replaced and water pump needs replacing as it leaks. Apart from that the car is in good nic and I'd like to keep it. Mec tells me it will cost about $5000 to do the work. I cant run to this, $3000 is top
You could also consider a used engine. Typically it is cost prohibitive to rebuild an engine. The key is how much oil is the unit burning? If 1 quart in 2000 miles, not bad at all and I would normally proceed with surgery. HOWEVER, if you have had a ... 2001 Subaru Outback
I have a 1988 4wd bronco 2, 2.9l. it's overheating when i drive too long, just changed the thermostat and its still doing it. my mechanic said it may be the water pump. it leaks out the upper hose coming from the radiator to the engine and the cap was not getting hot so i dont think the radiator is bad. i just want to try to figure this out without spending too much money
That does sound like a water pump. When is the last time you had the cooling system flushed? You can check to see if the pump is working by removing the radiator cap then starting the engine. If you look into the radiator, you should be able to se ... Ford Bronco II
1991 ford explorer 4.0L push rod type engine Im leaking water from underneath, but not all the time usually once or twice a week. But when it decides to leak it just pours out, so i let it cool then when I add water it starts pouring out again. (after it cools?) weird Anyway if its not the water pump is there anything else it could be? I changed the thermostat already. It looks the the water is comming from behind the water pump. Is that possible? I dont see any water from the weep hole, b
Very difficult because from your description of the area i would say waterpump ,but it could be a core plug or even a hose split and it moves causing the leak ,who knows its impossible to say without getting my oily fingers under the bonnet ,please ... Ford Explorer
I have a 2003 dodge stratus SE, the other day it started overheating. I replaced the thermostat and it was fine for a day, then it started overheating again. I saw that my coolant was completely empty and notice it was leaking so i thought it was the water pump but when i filled it up with water to take me down the street it started overheating but all the water was still there and smoking, my radiator isnt leaking and i dont hear my timing belt squealing. Could it still be my water pump or some
