Our 2004 Isuzu Rodeo has developed a coolant leak. The leak appears to be around or above a little panel or plate immediately behind the oil pan? Cannot find any other source. What is inside the littl


You will have to clarify behind the oil pan. Front of engine towards fan. Rear of engine transmission side. Or above the pan towards engine side. If there is coolant leaking from behind the engine (between the engine and trans) and is not running down from above eg head gasket or hose connection, chances are good that there is a frost plug leaking on the rear of the block.

Why is my 96 camry spraying coolant?


The overflow tank is not pressurised, so will not spray coolant around. The little hole is a breather. On the other side, possibilities are a cracked radiator top tank (it is plastic, and your Camry is about the right age to develop this), or a leaky hose or hose connection on the driver's side. Open the bonnet, wash the engine with a hose, allow it to completely dry, then start the engine and idle till hot, watching like a hawk with a torch to see where the leak appears. This is easier if you have a helper and the car is on wheel ramps.

I need photoes of radiator


Those hoses go from the transmission to the radiator. The radiator will have, along one side, two connections for the trans lines. The radiator has an internal plate that allows engine coolant to cool the trans fluid. The hoses from the trans should terminate to some metal piping with flare fittings that attach to the two ports on the radiator.

Oil and Coolant leak of about 11/2 quarts coolant - 1/2 quart oil per night Leak 1 (Coolant) Appears to be coming from the radiator bottom right corner. Leak 2 (oil) Appears to be coming from the engine...


The passenger right side of the car doesn't have any flanges for cooling system, if that's correct then your radiator has a leak or puncture.

The driver side of vehicle has both the in and out flanges for the radiator. Very common to see leak at the drain valve leaking (not closed tightly). In the same area would be bottom flange of radiator which the composite flange is degrading and causing the leak.

The middle part of the bottom engine compartment is where your oil/coolant cooler assembly just above the oil filter. A loose oil filter could be the cause 95% of the time and 5% would be a bad o-ring from the oil cooler to the oil filter flange.

My H2 is making Chocolate Milk Coolant!


The radiator has an internal trans cooler that must be leaking, the radiator needs to be replaced and the cooling system flushed of all the trans fluid. Usually the radiator hoses and hoses going to the heater core will need to be replaced because the trans fluid will soften the rubber and make them swell. Good luck, Honda Al

Can't find coolant leak


This sounds like you have two problems: a vacuum leak and a coolant leak. First the hissing sound you are hearing is more than likely a slow vacuum leak caused by a disintegrating rubber PCV elbow. The length of the PCV tube is mostly plastic with a foam rubber insulator. At each end are rubber connectors that joint an engine vacuum port (near the throtle body) to the PCV valve. The "connectors" are made of a cheap rubber that disintegrates with the presence of oil. Replace the tube with an updated part number from Ford. These are easy to over look and often missed. Next, the coolant over heating issue. I would have the system pressure tested by an independent, reputable Radiator shop. Nowadays most technicians use an infarred thermo-sensing device (you can get yourself one at Sears for about 70 bucks). You should start the vehicle and allow it warm-up normally. Once the vehicle has been running long enough check the difference in temperature of the thermostat housing (looking at the transverse-mounted engine the front of the motor is facing the passengers side of the vehicle, the thermostat housing is on the drivers' side just under the coil-pack for the ignition) and the upper portion of the radiator. Keep in mind the thermostat is the most common leak point for these engines. If there is a major difference and the radiator is relativly cold, then the radiator is plugged and needs to be replaced or this could indicate the thermostat is stuck closed. If the upper radiator hose is hot and feels firm, then I would suspect the radiator being plugged. If the Hose feels relatively cool and soft, I would suspect the thermostat.

My guess is that the thermostat housing is leaking. This is a very common problem with these. If you find that the housing is leaking, you should also find that there is probably stagnant coolant on the top of the bell housing of the transaxle, located directly beneath the thermostat housing. At this point you should replace the thermostat housing, thermostat and gasket (usually sqaure rubber).

Hope this gives some direction and helps you!
