Look for a crack in the overflow tank. It will be somewhere along the bottom if there is one. The other possibility is that the hose to the tank is leaky and/or the lid to the overflow tank is loose and you are suffering from evaporation. Once you fix the leak, refill with a mix of 50% anti-freeze and water.

Steam coming out from under the hood near the fan?


Did the vehicle overheat? Steam is indicative of overpressure. This could be caused from a stuck thermostat or a blown head gasket. Do this with vehicle all the way cool take the radiator cap off. Start it and if any blows out of the radiator the head gasket is blown . If nothing comes out and it's full stick your finger in the fluid. If it gets where it's too hot to touch in a couple of minutes , that also indicates a blown head gasket as exhaust gasses escape into the coolant.

Can a year-old water pump that doesn't leak or make noise just stop pumping ?


The impeller could break loose from the shaft. You would have to remove the pump to find out for sure.
Could be a blockage in one of the passages too.

2005 Jaguar s-Type Couple of weeks ago red light came on to indicate engine coolant low. Went by Goodyear and they put in anti freeze. Yesterday and today, the red light and same message are coming on...


You are leaking fluid. Check to see that the hoses don't have residual fluid on them indicating a leak. Also check to see if your water pump isn't leaking out the seal. Another thing to check is the oil dip stick. Make sure the oil looks normal and not watery indicating a crack in the block. These are only a couple of things I would start with.

Loosing anti freeze engine over heating


replace the viscous fan hub or check the electric fan operation as you do not have a forced air flow at idle. When the engine is working hard at low revs (pulling up hill) there is insufficient road air flow and at idle at lights there is no road air flow

We are changing the water pump need to refill the system


If you are asking if you will need to drain the fluid then yes you will have to drain at least half of the anti freeze before removing the water pump. I would recomend buying an extra gallon before you start because if you are needing a new water pump the chances are that you have lost some fluid already. but you can reuse the fluid that you drain just make shure that you use a clean container to catch the fluid. Another note is when buying you anti freeze check what color anti freeze you have. You never want to mix green with orange.

No heat , antifreez leak not visable...


A car this new should have a warranty right? the only other place for anti-freeze to go is through a blown headgasket into your oil. Pull out your oil dipstick and make sure it is not milky in color. If not check behind the engine and see if any coolant lines going into the firewall are leaking. When inside the car do you smell steaming coolant(anti-freeze) or hear gurgling? The temp gauge that stays on is the overheat indicator?

Dodge stratus R/T 2002 antifreeze problem(antifreeze coming out the cap)


First the "service engine soon" light is a manufacturer installed reminder for you to get an oil change or other pre-determined maintenance service done. It is different than the "check engine" light which indicates a sensor malfunction. Secondly, when the engine is cold the thermostat is closed and the antifreeze or coolant is not circulating. The cooling system is a closed system and the tank that the cap is on is not an overflow tank but rather an expansion tank. This tank allows for the expanding coolant that is now hot to leave the engine coolant jackets, that won't expand, into a tank that can expand slightly. When your engine got to normal operating temp., aka.. hot, the thermostat opened allowing coolant to circulate and fill the expansion tank probably over flowing with the cap off. This is a normal operation for your car.
