Water Leaking from a 1995 Buick LeSabre!!!

It's not coming from the radiator or from a hose (that I can see). The leak looks like it's coming from closer to the leftside of the engine.

Right above the water pump there is a water hose that goes into the manifold. the nipple that the hose goes onto is made of plastic and tend to break. the repacement one from a part store is made of metal. if you remove the alternator you will see where it is broke. you can pull back or remove the hose, using the correct size easy out you can remove the broken piece or if you don't have one very carefully use a hacksaw blade and cut the remaining nipple into 3 pieces. you don't want to cut into the metal threadss of the manifold so again be careful not to cut too deep. you can then easily break the nipple into pieces and remove them from the manifold.

Sounds like you may be leaking from your water pump. Sometimes you will get splatter marks from water hitting the pulley, that would be a good or bad sign to look for.

1998 Buick LeSabre 3800 V6. Coolant is leaking fro an "L" shaped hose that leads from the engine block to other heater hoses. Is this a major repair or can i do it myself?


My guess is you can fix it yourself if you posses rudimentary repair skills. Dump the radiator. Remove the hose, Take to parts store. Try to describe to them. Take a picture beforehand, just in case. Replace hose, refill radiator. Start engine, put heater on high, top off radiator again, close radiator, check for leaks, that's it. If you are really cautious then you will fill with all water first, check for leaks, dump and refill with proper antifreeze/water mix.

Water leaks from bottom of engine


If it is antifreeze, then dry off the area as much as possible...then run the engine and look underneathe while it's running to see where it is coming from....could be a loose radiator hose to the water pump, the water pump itself or leaking manifold.

Leaking anti freeze


You need to isolated the location of the coolant leak. Check the radiator, hoses, and water pump for leaks. The water pump should have a vent or "weep" hole. If there is any coolant leaking from the hole, the water pump is defective. When checking the hoses, look for cracks or obvious signs of deterioration. Pay particular attention to areas where the hose clamps are located when looking for leaks. Overheating and coolant loss can also be caused by a faulty thermostat. The thing is that you need to find out where the problem is before it can be addressed properly. Hope this helped and best wishes.

We have a 1995 buick lesabre.we installed a new water pump thinking that was where the antifreeze was coming from.(not so)can anyone give any ideas to where the leek might be coming from?


Hi There;
This is kind of an open question isn't it?
You might have a head gasket leaking or a heater core leaking or the radiator could be leaking or a heater hose or a casting plug (frost plug), might be rusted out & leaking, I'ld like to narrow it down for you but... your best bet is to park the car some where there is no stains on the ground. let it sit. then later move the car & try to find out what area the puddle is at. I might be able narrow it down for you. The biggest issue is with a 14 year old car it's gonna be hard to pin point it for you just because there is so many possibilities.
Most common leak would be the side tanks on the radiator. check for moistness along the edge of the fins on the rad or coolant pooling below the radiator.
Please get back to me if you need more input.
Good luck, Hope this helps
Farrout!
