Service engine soon is an engine code not likely related to the leaking heater core. I can almost guarantee your heater core has developed a leak. Bars Leak is recommended from the factory for Jaguars, and might accidentally stop the leak, The only other solution is heater coild replacement, The coil is not expensive, but the labot to install it is. The light indicates a malfunction in engine controls and emissions. Any auto parts store will be glad to run the codes for you, with the codes I can help yuo find a solution to the light issue also. ! Good Luck and I hope this helps!

Leaking water on 4.6 2000 deville on right side against firewall possible causes


Is it antifreeze or just water? If water, your AC system will frost up under use, which will melt and pool under the car on the passenger side (normal) after the engine stops. If antifreeze, there is a complicated cooling hose system, with some of them near the firewall. Check the overflow tank to see if you are losing coolant, and if so, check the hoses there while the engine is running.

if it leaking in Passenger compartment of car

Check the engine see if leaking out of side of engine. Could be welsh plugs are corroded.. Check when engine cold under the inlet manifold of the engine for any thin rubber hoses that might be hidden from normal view.

Why does my car lose antifreeze


did you replace the radiator cap. most people forget about this very important part, but with out a pressure test its almost impossible to find the laek unless you can see it. make sure yo run the vehicle & get it up to temp so the coolant will circulate!!!

I am loosing antifreeze collant about a cup a day. I am brown gook in my radiator and the reservor. I smell antifreeze and for a couple of days my windsheild would fog up. I have not seen any antifreeze...


Usually when you have these symptoms, the first thing you should look for is coolant in the passenger side floorboard. Just run your hands over the carpet and feel for dampness. if you have floor mats, ne sure to check under the floor mat. If it is damp you are most likely going to have a leaking heater core or heater core hose

1996 Beretta Z26 Antifreeze Leak


You should run the engine and watch it to see if you can see where the leak is coming from, it is most likely coming from a hose or the water pump.

Slow leak of water under car no antifreeze in it no water inside car what can this be


It is normal for all cars that have an air conditioner. It is the condensation of the water in the passenger compartment air.

Like a house window air conditioner, the water collects on a pan and drips out a tube.

Wet under driver's side floor mat


Is there a sweet smell inside the car?Heater core leak I beleive would be on passenger side floor.Antifreeze will be sweet to the nose.Are you getting any white smoke out the tailpipe? would likely be head gasket leak.Put a piece of cardboard under the car near the radiator and under the motor to see where its leaking from .One thing Ive learned over the years is that its going somewhere.On the ground? Or out the tailpipe.
As for the floor board leak the 98 s were prone to have the defrost area in front of windshield collect water from being plugged up .Mine was passenger floorboard.Daughter resealed small oval vent (that defrosts /heats hood?) LOL .Its on pass. side under hood on cowl .I think this will take care of my problem but you may need to investigate under the dash/defrost area and drill and then install a drain line to bottom of defroster.Exit drain line to O/Side of car...lol .Also was it raining ? was car outside in rain .if so it could be this issue.Sorry so long ,hope you can make heads or tails of this.

Coolant Leak


Well this is going to be like finding a needle in a haystack! You can get a test done where they put a flourescent ink in your coolant, run the engine and then go over your engine with a black light. With a leak this small, that might be your best bet!
