SOURCE: I have water leaking from

Hi it has the classic symptoms of a failed water pump, when stationary no water/coolant is running around the engine hence cold air, when driving its forcing the water/coolant around the engine giving the warm air,, solution have the water pump changed before the head gasket blows, Hope this helps

SOURCE: got water leak worse when running in front

I would assume that it would be your water pump. Check to see if the fluid is comming off of the water pump in the front of your motor, you should be abe to see a drip on the botom of the pully.

SOURCE: Water leak under truck, had oressure test could

Are you sure the water leak is coolant?

not the ac condensation?
if it is coolant and doesnt show up in a pressure test its probably a head gasket leak

SOURCE: Water running out from top of motor. Intake Gasket?

The lower intake manifold gasket will be the problem. This is a high failure rate item and GM has redesigned the gasket a couple times in an attempt to correct it. Currenty Napa has the best replacement gasket and it is known as a "Perma-Dry".
I have done many and have never seen a warped intake. It's worth the fix, take your time and torque the gasket as per the instructions provided.
Good luck

My car heats up in stop n go traffic. The temperature gauge can go as high as to the 'RED'. I adding water and coolant everyday. Are the fans supposed to come on as I am driving and the car heats up?


if you are adding coolant every day then you are experiencing coolant loss
could be from a leaking pump gasket , head gasket or other leaking item
have a compression test done to check for head gasket , cracked head
next have the cooling system pressure tested to find the cooling leak
lastly check the fan, fan relay , fuses and coolant temp sensor unit for correct operation

Coolant leaking from expansion tank filler cap


Yes im sure it should have a rubber seal.only if the pipes are rock hard during running should u start checking head gaskets.the cooling system runs under pressure anyway but weakest point will give first.it will be a pressure cap so check into getting a new cap first

Hi i have vauxhall corsa 1.2sxi twinport 2005, i recently had a mechanic run some tests because it was losing power there was little bit of cream round the oil cap, he did compression test and emissions...


Sometime it is hard to diagnotic head gasket when leak is very small, Put pressure on 15pound air pressure in cooling system when cold and check leak.

You could find it with exhaust gaz analyser in the radiator cap(exhaust leak from head gasket) if so try BARS leak or head gasket sealer in radiator sometime it work for small leak

How do I check for a blown head gasket on my 1990


Pretty much same answer as I gave for 87 Reliant see below. Shops have equipment to do cylinder leakage test. Do basic stuff below before doing last test ...cylinder leakage...which costs $$$.

Main point you are losing antifreeze/water. Check to see if you have water on the dipstick mixed in with oil. If so...probably a head gasket. If oil looks normal..... Before you do any test, tighten every hose connection. Check for loose connection into antifreeze reservoir. Sometimes there are small cracks on top which lets out pressure from cooling system. Look for leaks on water pump and radiator. Look at spot where you park the car...any liquid on floor? Not sure?..Put piece of cardboard under car to see if liquid is dripping from car. No leaks?...Start with a pressure test of the system. The pressure test is simply equipment that replace the radiator cap, a hand pump connected to it then air is pumped into cooling system. You watch the gauge to see if pressure is dropping. If pressure does not drop ..problem is most like a worn radiator pressure cap or stuck thermostat.. Do not buy the kind with button on cap to push down and release pressure. get original type and correct pressure. If overheating still, thermostat could be stuck, replace. Overheating of engine causes vapor lock, bubbles in fuel, which causes car to stall and kill. When cools off, fuel cools down and fuel will flow through fuel system again. Large amount of oil disappearing with overheating also sounds like head gasket or cracked head....Tighten up all bolts to gaskets, look for oil leaks on garage floor or driveway. If engine has developed a miss when running, pull plugs out and look for wet fouled plug. If antifreeze leaking into cylinder...plug tip will be whitish, if oil leaking into cylinder, grimey oil fouled. Do compression test on cylinder that is fouled and that will pinpoint if bad head gasket or cracked head. When doing compression test, radiator cap is removed and you listen to hear bubbles in radiator from the cylinder leaking into cooling system. 87 Reliant not worth pulling engine apart if head gasket or cracked head. Best oil treatment to reduce oil consumption is "Engine Restore" Used on my 58 Impala 348 tri power for 28 years. If I did not add it after oil changes it used oil and smoked....I swear by it for ANY engine after 100,000 miles.

99 pontiac montana overheaten already changed thermostat what is it?


you have a GM common problem and that is a bad intake manifold gasket. GM change the gaskets to plastic and they crank and leak causing over heating. here is a picture of one i took from a 2005 pon. bonneville with 74,000 miles on it2_12_2013_3_00_09_am.jpg

My 2006 charger 3.5 is leaking coolant but only somtimes is it a sign of water pump malfunction no indications on the gauges but car seems to be running hot


this is most likely the water pump if it is leaking at front of engine, the water pump is under the large timing belt cover and driven by the timing belt, so both are changed at the same time.

Temp gauge went to 260 & stayed there. What could be the problem?


The only real way to answer your questions is for you to open the hood and look it over. Once it has cooled down, re-fill the cooling system (use water...it's cheaper and to do repair you will need to repalce it anyhow...Once full carefully look everything over to find where the leak is.Also make sure that the drivebelt is there. (from what you said, likely it is) If it's water pump, you will see coolant running out from under the pulley. Once you have looked everything over, if you have not found leak, start engine and close the cap...look again...as pressure builds, small leaks will become more obvious. If you don't find leak, remove the thermostat and change it.
After changing stat, if problem persists, it's likely that you have either a plugged radiator or an internal engine gasket problem. If you have any auxiliary electric cooling fans, make sure they are working and also check the fan clutch on the mechanical fan (it should not excessively freewheel when hot). Whole testing, any time you replace the radiator cap you must allow engine to cool down before removing it again. Watch temp gauge while testing...don't allow engine to overheat.
