Coolant leaking I have a 1996 saturn that is leaking coolant from the passenger side tordge the front closer to the tire area. I recently put a new radiator in. So im assuming thats not the problem.Also my fan doesnt always turn on like its suppose to I have to turn on my air conditioning in order to turn my fan on sometimes.Anyone know what could be wrong??
Im not too much of an expert but if you just replaced the radiator, one of the hoses may not have been securely tightened or damaged all together, and if im correct, you're fan runs off the water pump, which might not be getting enough pressure to tu ... 1996 Saturn SL
I'm leaking coolant from area of the water pump. It is not overheating when running even when at idol. When I replace the fluid it starts leaking from the bottom as I'm refilling the radiator but not from the radiator. What could be the problem?
No decent tech will guess where the leak is. You need to actually get under there and look. When you find the leak source, that is the part you need to replace. As for overheating, it eventually will get worse and loose enough coolant to overheat. do ... 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Overheating Problem Hello Everyone: I have a difficult overheating problem that I am trying to solve for my 88 ford thunderbird. I had the hoses, water pump and radiator replaced but I am still losing coolant in the radiator. I lose about 1/4 a gallon every 100 miles. It seems like a slow leak. My question is: Where else could it be leaking? Jon
There are a lot of places it could be leaking from,it could be a head gasget, freeze plug, intake gasget, ect. best thing to do is pressureise the cooling system and look for a leak, and watch the pressure guage on tester. Do you have the right radia ... 1988 Ford Thunderbird
My car keeps overheating. Initially I was told it was the radiator so I had the radiator replaced and it was fine for about 2 weeks but now its overheating again. Its not leaking coolant like before but once it overheats when I stop the car and park I hear like a boiling sound and sometimes the coolant will boil out. What could be wrong

1994 Pontiac Sunbird was driven for three months without coolant until it overheated a day ago. It overheated on the way home and started smoking out of the air vents. That night, I filled it with coolant, the radiator and the overflow, but still overheated. Took it into the shop. They said that there was a problem with the heater? A whole somewhere where the coolant would just leak out. It would cost $400 to get this fixed before they could see if anything else was wrong. I don't know whe
I assume the shop was talking about heater core being bad and even if heater core is bad they should be able to test for a head gasket being bad actually you can totally bypass the heater core so there no reason to fix that before you check for a hea ... 1994 Pontiac Sunbird
My 99 Saturn SL2 has recently been leaking the engine coolant. Every time I drive it, I need to put in a 1/4 to 1/2 bottle of coolant. It was overheating a couple weeks ago and I replaced the fan motor. A few days later, the low engine coolant light on my dash began blinking and I have to add the coolant. I can see a puddle of coolant under the car after I turn it off but with the engine running, I can't see where it's leaking...Just dripping onto the ground. Any advice? Thanks.
Take it to a shop and ask them to put it up on a lift, take a look and figure out where it is leaking. They can tell you and also how much to fix. ... 1999 Saturn SL
2003 hyundai elentra overheating and already did alot of standard procedures to fix the problem and still overheats. Car vurrently has 64k on it. Here is the history. Last year it overheated and changed the thermostat, radiator and fans. Work fine and now this year again. The radiator had a very muddy cap. As if mud was in the radiator. We flushed the radiator checked all hoses for leaks filled with new coolant. Ran okay for about 30 miles and problem started again. Changed water pump, timing b
The only other thing I can think of is maybe you put in the wrong kind of coolant? Not every type of coolant works in every car. Other than that, try head gasket sealer because if your head gasket is leaking, it can't be a big leak, otherwise you'd h ... Cars & Trucks

Sometimes the pipe that runs under the intake will leak. Can you smell antifreeze burning while you are driving? Another way to tell, is to let the vehicle run with the cap off. IF you get alot of bubbles out of the radiator, you have a cracked he ... 1992 Plymouth Voyager
Radiator Flush I have drained the radiator and need to know what do from here. Do I leave the valve open while the engine is running and keep water from the hose introducing fluid into the cooling system? Or should I be going about this differently? Ultimately, I have a small leak in my head gasket and will be adding Bar's Leaks to fill the viod. The jeep has never overheated and loses water. I have to add water about every 4 days. I have checked the coolant system for leaks and found none. No w

Engine Overheating My truck keeps leaking all of its engine coolant somewhere near the water pump. The coolant tank is full and no coolant is being pumped into the motor so I have to keep filling up the radiator. However it completely leaks out of the truck within the hour. There is a cranking sound coming from the engine when the temp goes to the highest point and then the temp comes down a little. Then when i turn the truck off there is a loud hissing sound. Is it the thermostat gauge or the w

Coolant surge tank on my 93 saturn SL2 has a pine hole leak on the inside seam which is leaking out coolant and causing overheating. It is a plastic tank. Is the tank by itself replaceable?

I have a 1991 Volvo 940 Turbo with about 240K on the engine.The water pump was leaking. I drained the coolant by removing the lower radiator hose. I replaced the old water pump (for the first time) with a Hepu pump, removed old gasket material from block area, cleaned the thermostat housing of calcified corrosion, reconnected all coolant hoses, etc, and filled the reservoir with anti freeze. I started the car to check for leaks. No leaks from hoses. But during the idle process of about ten plu
Did you bleed the cooling system after you reinstalled? Chances are high that there are trapped air pockets in the system. Those systems will thump you big time for not bleeding them (sometimes repeatedly) after a water pump change. It's possible, th ... 1994 Volvo 940

If your radiator is clean inside and you water flows and circulates with the radiator cap then it is OK. The leak is probably coming from the intake area or the head gasket. You could try some BARS leak that you can get at your auto parts store and s ... Chevrolet Impala
