Loosing coolant


the test is easy
it uses the magic of the system has 12 to 14PSI pressure all the time.
hot. so park it get it hot. to 180F (old thermostats fail, they are #1 failure ,so why would you discount that?????)
ok its really hot , my pryo gun shows 180F ,ok real hot is true. no bs.
so now look for leaks.
if you see none
and the passenger toes are dry (heater core drips)
then there are on external leaks,
if true that, then its INTERNAL LEAKS!

head gasket is failing or the A/T or engine oil pan is full of AF.
are you running 50%^ AF all the time, ?????

everywhere you drive do you look after parking, for ground leaks.?
as you leave car and when you come back.
you must. or miss the boat.

Leaking engine coolant. the coolant eventually all leaks out and car over heats.


Does the leak show up on the ground when you are parked with the engine running or stopped.
Determine where it's leaking from. Hose? near fire wall, near radiator. Water pump will leak when it's worn.
Can you smell it when you're inside the car? heater core.

I am having a problem with antifreeze smell and leak. I can't see where the leak is coming from but I do see spots on the ground. It does not over heat but it does have a sent of pancake syrup once heated....


LEAK COULD BE COMING FROM RADIATOR.WHEN YOU FIRST START VECHICLE UP IN MORNING LET ENGINE IDLE TO GET UNTIL THERMOSTAT OPEN AND COOLANT PRESSURE BUILD UP. TURN ENGINE.OFF. RAISE HOOD YOU WILL SEE LEAK. THE COOLANT PRESSURE WILL PUSH OUT ANTIFREEZE.LOOK FOR LEAKS AROUND TOP RADIATOR HOSE AND LOWER RADIATOR HOSE.LOOK ON SIDES RADIATOR AND LOOK BELOW RADIATOR AREA WHERE COOLANTS FANS LOCATED RADIATOR CORES WILL LEAK AND LOOK AROUND WATER PUMP + BYPASS HOSE + CHECK HEATER HOSES TO HEATER CORE THAT GOES THROUGH BACK LOWER FIRE WALL.

When you bypass the heater core the path for the water to go through the core is gone. Correct?, you have connected to engine water line out to the engine water input? thus bypassing the heater core........


No, you just won't have water flow through the heater core, Coolant flows through the engine through the lower radiator hose as the water pump sucks it out of the radiator and pushes it through the engine. It then flows out the top radiator hose when the thermostat opens. It then flows into the radiator to cool off.

Is your heater core leaking?

I hace a coolant leak that comes from a line that comes out of the engine and 90s into the base of the serpentine belt tentioner. I dont know name of coolant line to replace it but I can see it leaking and...


It Is probably a "Coolant Bypass hose" If its possible...take it off and bring it in to an auto parts shop and have them match it up...some cars have "Several" coolant by-pass hoses. A Site might help you identify the hose as well

http://www.rockauto.com

Go to it and Click "pontiac"
Click "1997"
Click " Bonneville SE" or "SSE"...then click "Cooling System" and then click "Coolant Hose"
Click the various pictures in hopes to "Spot" the one thats in your car, And read the label as to what its called or even get the part number!
I hope this info has helped you out

Temperature/heat wont work/dashboard lights on and off


It sounds to me like you're low on coolant. When you checked the coolant level, did you actually open the radiator cap and make sure the radiator is full? The plastic tank you generally add coolant too is actually an 'overflow' or 'reserve' tank. There is a hose that runs from that tank to the top of the radiator so if the radiator gets low on coolant, more coolant -should- run in from the overflow tank. However in practice this does not always work. I have a Jeep that leaks coolant and experiences this exact same problem. Coolant will not run from the reserve tank into the radiator because the hose is plugged up, and whenever the radiator gets low on coolant the temp gauge will go real high and then drop, and the heater doesn't work well. This is because the cooling system of your car is supposed to be a closed system, full of coolant and no air. When coolant leaks out, the space it used to occupy is now occupied by air, which does not transfer heat well. When 'air' is passing through your cooling system, no heat can be transferred from your engine to the heater and radiator, resulting in a hot engine and no heat at the heater. Then when a pocket of water passes through the system, the temperature gauge quickly falls as the water absorbs the heat from the engine. The hot water that cools the engine is where the heater gets it's heat from as well, so when water passes through the heater core, the heater works, but when it's filled with air, it doesn't.
