SOURCE: antifreeze wont stay in car leaking for bottom

You need to look closely at the hose connections, freeze plugs, and the water pump. Water pumps are designed so that when the shaft bearing wears out, they leak from a small hole under the pulley shaft. Sometimes they will only leak while the engine is running. Freeze plugs can rust through causing a leak usually from the side of the engine. Hoses can leak from anywhere. You'll probably have to get under the engine to narrow down the possibilities. You may also want to rent a tool to pressurize the cooling system. That might help you to see where the leak is coming from. If you've never changed a water pump or a freeze plug before, you might be better off taking it to a professional. If it's just a hose, you could probably do that yourself. I hope this was helpful. Thanks.

Leaking coolant and antifreeze


Have you checked the water pump? It has what is referred to as weep holes (2). Just before failure in a water pump, it will leak antifreeze out one or both holes, usually the bottom hole. Also, check passenger floor for dampness, which would mean heater core or heater core hoses are leaking

How to check for leaks of antifreeze/in 97 expedition smell of antifreeze


Hi Sharlene,so you smell antifreeze.Raise your hood and check your antifreeze over flow container,you should have a l and a h mark on it,high and low.If low,then it's leaking somewhere,look at the radiator cap and overflow hose for leak,look at over flow container for leak from hose going to it from radiator,look all over engine,look at top and bottom radiator hoses and clamps for leaks,if leaking there,tighten clamp with flat head screw driver,if no leak is found,get under vehicle and see if any antifreeze is visible,maybe water pump,look on ground for leak and follow,check floor board on driver side,heater core could be bad,check hoses going to heater core from engine firewall.

Sounds like the heater core is leaking. Locate where it is and see if antifreeze is leaking out the bottom.

I will like to know if the antifreeze leak could be from the water pump if the leak comes from the bottom of the car and not from the radiator


ALL antifreeze leaks will be seen coming from the bottom of the car. Yes, it COULD becoming from the water pump. But then again, it could be coming from an intake manifold gasket, a heater hose, a throttle-body heater hose, a freeze plug, a timing cover, a heater control valve, etc..
To find out where it is leaking from, you must follow the antifreeze trail UP from where you see it leaking. Antifreeze leaks ALLWAYS travel downhill. Sometimes they can be deceiving also. I have seen intake manifold leaks at the front of the engine run all the way to the back of the engine and make it look like a rear freeze plug is leaking. Again, you must follow the trail to find the actual source.

Antifreeze leaks out as soon as added to engine. car shuts off as soon as all antifreeze leaks out. what could be wrong? when antifreeze leaks out so badly


Depending on the mileage & other facters unseen I would hesitate a guess! You may have a blown head gasket, A frost plug leak, a water pump leak. Have a rad pressure test done to ascertain the leak location, but you can first check the tail pipe for antifreeze smell, if you smell it you have a head gasket problem. Also check the oil dipstick to see if you have any traces of white residue, an indication of a head gasket leak. I hope this helps & good luck!
