Change out your thermostat gasket and upper radiator hose. This should fix the problem.

I have a 1999 vw Passat v6 2.8L 5v and its not holding coolant. As fast as I dump it in it drains right out. I dont think it could be a freeze plug because the car is off and the thermostat is closed. So...


Possibly a hose or a freeze plug. Yes, the coolant will go into the engine when it is off and the thermostat closed. As you fill the radiator, coolant will go into the engine through the bottom radiator hose. Keep looking-save your coolant and use water till you find where it is leaking. Stick a garden hose into the radiator, turn it on low, then you can see or feel where the leak is.

Anti freeze leak I hear hissing sound under neath fuel injection system


could be leaking at the top radiator hose going to thermostat, that is a hard spot to see leak remove the air filter and air filter housing look below throttle body you see thermostat housing, check for leaks around thermostat housing gasket and check for leak at the top radiator hose going to radiator and thermostat.if all is good check all radiator hoses for leaks check small coolant lines going to throttle body for leaks and check make sure bleeder screw on thermostat housing not loose it will leak also check around radiator and water pump heater bypass metal lines for leaks.

My 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix is overheating and leaking antifreeze, I add coolant every few days then the temp goes up and I have to add coolant again. There doesn't seem to be any smoke coming from the...


You should look under the car after it sits a while and see if there is antifreeze on the ground. If so try to see where it could be leaking under the hood directly over the puddle. You could have a leaking water pump. If so there would be dampness under the right side of engine compartment. Also check the radiator hoses at front of car.

My s 430 has smoke coming from under hood after driving but not all the time temp gauage reads normal. I had oil and trans leaks sealed but it is still happening, what else could it be? Thanks


SMOKE UNDER HOOD COULD BE COOLANT LEAK FROM RADIATOR ITSELF OR CHECK FOR LEAKING TOP RADIATOR HOSE AND CHECK FOR LEAKING BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE.LOOK UNDER THE HOOD IF COOLANT BOILING OUT COOLANT OVERFLOW JUG ENGINE OVERHEATING FROM BAD THERMOSTAT OR BAD WATER PUMP.CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAK AT WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE.IF SO WATER PUMP NEED REPLACING.ADD MORE COOLANT UNTIL LEVEL CORRECT.TRY LOCATE LEAK. IF CAR OVERHEATED AND BOILED IT OUT. SMOKE UNDER THE HOOD CAN ALSO BE CAUSED BY LEAKING VALVE COVERS WHICH CAN BE FIRE HAZARD IF OIL LEAKS ON HOT EXHAUST MANIFOLD.

Ok, thanks. i have put a lot of water into where the coolant suppose to be. now i want to put the anti freeze coolant. do i need to drain all the water in the radiator before add the anti freeze coolant or...


If it is a 6 cyl they are known for lower intake gasket failure. look by the drivers side near transmission that is where they leak. if it is leaking there it is about a $400.00 job to fix and unless you are qualified to do it you should go to a garage

Anti-freeze is leaking from the right side of my car towards the front right tire. It's not leaking from the radiator. I have to constantly refill the refill container that holds the extra anti-freeze.


Cheap fix first: inspect the line connecting the overflow jar to the radiator. Inspect the overflow jar for cracks. Does it leak while it's parked? Sight down to the puddle from under the hood, It should show you where it's coming from. That's a nine year old car. If it's hard to find you'll need a pressure test (any shop). Perhaps you need new hoses and clamps? Perhaps you're due for a flush and fresh coolant? How long has it been, how many miles? Coolant's a maintenance item. The worst case scenario would a leaking head gasket. It's a joint partway down the engine a few inches below the valve cover(s), Not as common, but it will only get worse. Coolant problems are best dealt with before summer arrives and you become stranded on the x-way.
