    Antifreeze leaks whenever i park my landrover. Staines of antifreeze is seen by the inside of drivers front wheel but unable to find leaks on any of the hoses.

    Saw a mechanic recently who said the thread on the cap for the bottle is not good. Bought another cap but the problem continues. What next shoud i do.

    Off course head gasket went twice at 32,000 and 61,000 miles. Current mileage is 64,939.

Hi are you overheating and are you having to fill it up because it is leaking or were you just toping up and is it coming out of the overflow on the expansion bottle to find a leak that at first appears not to be leaking the best way to find it is to put a pressure tester on it see if the pressure goes down as it will if there is a leak but then you will see it and don,t take the water cooling systems caps off when hot yates210456

1996 Olds Cutlass Supreme BAD coolant leak. Pour in it pours out the bottom. Drive a bit there is smoke or steam coming from the right side up by the battery. What could be causing this?

Could be one of a few things, but the most common and first consideration would involve a badly ruptured radiator hose which is leaking onto a hot exhaust system. Its should not be that difficult to isolate the hose and replace it, refill your radiator with the proper anti-freeze/water mix appropriate to your geographical area and take it from there. If it's leaking that badly, it almost has to be a hose, or more than one, or perhaps the radiator itself. . . this doesn't sound like, on the surface anyway a serious, expensive fix - even if it is the radiator itself.

Fill radiator with antifreeze but still low when checked no signs of leaks

You could have a slow leak somewhere near the engine or exhaust and when it does leak it just hits the hot part and burns away before it hit the ground. Your best bet is to get/rent a cooling system pressure tester. You can build up the pressure as if the vehicle is hot and since you are doig it when the engine is cold, you will be able to lovate the source of your leak. Like a freeze plug or even in your heater coil. That's what I would suggest. Hope this helps.

In the last week i have filled the coolant reserve tank several times, total of 2 gallons of coolant, and yet the reservoir runs dry and requires more coolant. I cannot find any coolant leaking under the...

hi, if your 100% sure that their is no coolant leaking onto the floor then look inside the car where the drivers and passenger feet are if the floor is wet then this means the heater rad is leaking and needs replacing if its dry then this could be a more serious problem now what you need to do is check your oil pull the oil stick out and check for signs of water if water is present then it will look a grey color and this would mean head gasket failure if how ever the oil level is ok and the color is normal then this could indicate that the head gasket has gone and the coolant is being burned out with the engine gasses, you need to get a compression test done and possibly a sniff test to test the coolant for signs of gasses from the engine.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Water leak from the plastic bottle when the car coms so hote ,how can i re full water in the radetor if i change the plastic bottle with a new on?

If you are changing the bottle then you may need to empty the cooling system,change the bottle and refill and make sure you add anything that is needed with it,(like anti freeze if applicable).Once new bottle fitted you will need to fill it with water and preferably from a hose...then you will need to make sure there is no air inside the system..This should solve your problem..

1998 cadillac catera anti-freeze leak

First things first don't use Dexcool.

It would happen only once in a while likely because the overflow bottle doesn't always fill to the point of where the leak is located. It would be very easy to unbolt the bottle and fill it with water to find the leak and patch it up.

Losing Anti-Freeze

hi get it prussure tested if you are correct in saying there is no sign of a leak or signs of water in the exhaust then you will have a leak and what is happening is it is evaporating as it leaks hence on sign of leak usually theseleaks are found where hose are near something hot example exhaust manifold the pressure tester will make the leak visable yates210456
