My vehicle is losing coolant with no signs of any leaks

I have replaced the radiator and thermostat and ensured the coolant hoses were intact and tight. It's losing coolant at a rapid rate! Also I there is a loud ticking noise and my vehicle is losing power every time I press the gas peddle.

Have you pressure-tested the cooling system? Has the engine been overheated? If there are no signs of external leaks, you may have an internal leak. You may have a cracked cylinder head or a blown head gasket. Check the engine oil on the dipstick- is it pure oil or does it have bubbles of moisture on it? Does it smell like coolant? The ticking may be a result of little lubrication of the engine oil due to the presence of coolant. It would also cause your power issue.

There is a plastic heater pipe junction behind the inlet manifold against the fire wall that could be brittle and leaking.

SOURCE: My 96 Isuzu Rodeo does not indicate that it is

sounds like you might have a head or head gasket problem, combustion pressure leaking into radiator/cooling system causing pressure build up (hose swelling) the noise could also be from this failure.
get engine warm so hoses swell, turn off engine remove spark plugs leave radiator cap on and pressure from cooling system as is(hoses swollen) wait 5-10 minutes crank over engine with plugs removed and keep clear of spark plug holes, put paper in front of spark plug holes if water comes out of spark plug hole or slight wetting of paper with water head or head gasket is at fault.

SOURCE: My 98' Isuzu rodeo Has just blown Head Gasket how

If you are not very mechanically inclined leave this to a shop, head gaskets can be very complicated for some. the block can be flushed once the head is removed or even before. the fan is actuated by a sensor (usually on the radiator). Replace it since the motor got that hot. Sorry to say you may have warped the head or even cracked it if the heat was that high. You need to invest in a mechanics manual for your vehicle and read all that pertains to cylinder head R & R before you attempt any of this yourself

Lower radiator hose or core


Before you go replacing a radiator, you need to check out why the quick overheat. Most likely due to low coolant which indicates a leak. Yes the core could be leaking...but it is not the most likely problem. If there is coolant dripping from the lower hose, it could be a simple matter of the lower hose clamp just needing to be tightened. They do work loose occasionally. Check the clamp, and tighten if needed. With the vehicle cold, check and refill the coolant in the both the radiator and the reservoir bottle. Run the vehicle to normal temperature and observe all connection points. IF no leaks are seen, use the vehicle normally and monitor coolant level for a week or so to ensure that you have solved the problem. If you are still loosing coolant, but have no visible signs of loss (drips or puddles under vehicle), then the problem could be a worn out water pump. They often tend to leak only when running and the lost coolant often evaporates on the engine block out of sight.

I have a 2004 BMW 330i and have replaced everything in the coolant system, and my vehicle is still leaking coolant out the expansion tank, or the cap where you add coolant to the radiator. I have use OEM...


We have had some similar problems with some BMW's,the last one we replaced the expansion tank.Before we attached the upper radiator hose to the radiator we filled the engine with antifreeze through the hose.Install the hose and fill your expansion tank to the proper level and run the engine to operating temperature.

My car's over heating and losing water. 2004 Suzuki Verona. Is this the thermostat?


Yes, it could be the thermostat, but overheating may also be caused by many other things. Ensure engine tune or other mechanical disfunction is not contributing to the overheat problem.
Replace the thermostat, but if overheating persists I suggest you carry out the following checks:-
1) Check coolant system is not leaking fluid due cracked/perished hose or hose fitting, leaking water pump etc,
2) Check engine cooling fan/s are operating as required when engine temp rises above cut-in threshold - check fan control relay is ok,
3) Check for collapsing radiator hose on suction side of water-pump when motor revs raised above idle.
4) Check coolant reservoir pressure cap is serviceable,
5) Check coolant system is properly filled - carry out any bleed off procedure specified to clear any air locks- (ensure heater core coolant flow is turned on).
6) Check condition of radiator core:-
i) for blockage of air flow to (bugs/grass etc),
ii) for core internal blockage to coolant flow,

99 deville head gasket leak?


A head gasket leak is usually indicated (among other things) by continous overheating of the motor, and subsequent loss of coolant.
It can also be indicated by the presence of engine combustion gas bubbles in the coolant resevoir.
Ensure the coolant system has no external leaks, such as faulty hose/s, radiator etc.

Ensure motor tune or other motor mechanical condition is not the cause of overheating.
I assume the motor is actually running hot.

Check cooling fans are operating ok (as necessary when car warms up):- if not check
1) fuse,
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.

Check/replace the thermostat,
Check the coolant pressure cap is serviceable & of correct rating,
Ensure cooling system is correctly filled, bleed off any airlocks as necessary when re-filling,
Ensure radiator hose on suction side of waterpump is not collapsing at engine revs above idle (due softening),
If the motor has been severely overheated, the head gasket could be blown - look for combustion gas bubbles in the coolant resevoir.

My car is over heating and cokkent oil is leaking


Cars generally overhead when engine coolant is below acceptable levels. That can be caused from leakage, blockage or equipment malfunction.

  • Inspect coolant level in the vehicle's reservoir or radiator.
  • Inspect radiator and heater hoses for cracking causing leaking.
  • Inspect the radiator for leaking.
  • Inspect the inside of radiator for smudge build-up, a sure sign that the water jackets might be restricted.
  • Inspect water pump for leaking or broken belt (serpentine belt)
  • Check to ensure water pump properly functioning, does the pump's pulley turn?
Repair or replace any faulty item.

Temp gauge goes high. Radiator leak just the


It could well be a faulty thermostat- test or replace same.
Could also be a blocked radiator core, - check coolant or airflow is not restricted,
Ensure any radiator leaks are repaired,
Ensure coolant level is correct, without airlocks - bleed as necessary on re-fill,
Check operation of cooling fan - ensure fan runs at appropriate engine temperature - if not check sensor switch and associated relay operation.
Thermostat is located at the end of top radiator hose where it connects to engine housing.
