Coolant leaking on pass side

I just bought a 1999 grand prix gt the other day. I know the fuel filter needs to be replaced. I just noticed another problem. When I start it, the coolant leaks (kinda squirts out at a good rate) on the upper passenger side of the engine. Can you tell me what this is and an estimate to fix? Thank you

This is where the water pump is located as well as some cooling system hoses, have them checked, don't overheat this engine, if u do u are looking at $1000's to repair.

1999 pontiac grand prix gt overheated. coolant is in the spare container, stem came from topside on the passenger's side. did not see fluid leaking and temp gauge had been up and down for at least...


Sounds like you have air in your coolant system. Take it to a mechanic shop to have them bleed the cooling system. That should cure your problem. Hope this helps. :) Please rate this. James Booth

Pontiac grand prix gt 3800 dexcool leak


Do you see the coolant leaking on the motor? From the drivers side, you can inspect the intake manifold...unfortunately as good as this motor usually is...it is known for leaking at the intake manifold...and requires a new intake gasket...DO NOT USE dexcool after the replacement...many teams believe the dexcool is part of the problem...use the coolant that "For All Coolant Systems" is still the green anti-freeze...Hope this helps.

Where is the fuel filter on a 2006 pontiac grand prix gt


Pontiac stopped installing the fuel filter on the rail in 2006. The 2004-2005 models had a fuel filter on the driver's side under the rear passenger seat area clipped to the frame. 2006 beyond the fuel filter is part of the fuel pump unit inside the tank.

My 04 grand prix is leaking coolant. It was first


I had the same problem.The leak was from the block heater.I did not notice any leaks on the ground,but was always low on anti freeze.The block heater came apart on the highway and blew all the fluid out of the car,luckly i shut the car off and had it towed to the shop.They replaced the block heater with a rubber frost plug to get me back on the road.Have your block heater checked,they maybe your problem has well.

I got a 1997 pontiac grand prix gtp coupe. the low coolant light constantly flashes. the coolant fluids are full. i just bought it and i am a little frustrated.


Sometimes the float in the low coolant sensor gets stuck.Find where the electrical connector is on the overflow tank and lightly tap on this area.This might dislodge it,if its stuck.Good Luck!!!
