    Well, let me tell you from experience....RUN. Seriously, if you havent sold it or shot it, do it. I had THREE....ALL DIED after overheating and nobody being able to diagnose. The last one I tool to the dealer..he called an hour later and said "no problems, I dorve it 20 miles and its fine"...NOT. I got there and he had blown the motor because he "had no idea it'd lost ALL it's water". I kid you not, this is a recurring issue with these cars, and I think it is safe to say that there will NEVER be a recall. (Although, with car #3 I ended up with the pick of the lot (suppose they didnt want to be sued). This time I got a foreign car. My 3 Pacificas were THEE biggest pieces of you know what that I have ever owned........and I have owned a LOT of cars. STAY AWAY FROM THE PACIFICA!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: why is my car running hot?losing water

Blown head gasket resulting in super heated water (pegging gauge) then creating excessive pressure and blowing the hose off. Take the cap off and rev it and if it shoot water out like Old Faithful that's the problem.

SOURCE: 2002 VW Jetta 1.8T has a leak somewhere.Need diagram

Bring the car into a repair shop and have them pressure test it for leaks or you can purchase a pressure tester make sure you get the appropriate adapter for your cars radiator filler neck or resovoir, and check for leaks yourself. Make sure the car is cold and there is the appropriate mixtiure of coolant and water in the system, prior to pressure testing. Also do a visual inspection of the cooling system when the vehicle is cold and look for leaks.

SOURCE: Blazer running hot. Antifreeze level low cause of

If you are seeing coolant on the top side of your engine, it sounds to me like it may be the intake manifold gasket. Does this have the 4.3L engine? If so, this is a common problem with these engines. If the leak is severe enough, the cooling system will not build up the pressure it needs and this will cause it to run hot. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1991 camaro overheating

There are two freeze out plugs at the rear of the block (V8) and many v6 engines. If coolant is coming from where you say, likely they have failed. Unfortunately, the only way to reach them is to remove engine or transmission, It's rare that they fail because they are "protected " by the bellhousing, but can still rot from the inside out. There is no sealer known to man that will fix this. It's a shame that you need to do all that work for a pair of $2.00 plugs, but that's what needs to happen.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Windstar is leaking antifreeze

Could be water pump, radiator, freeze plugs, hoses, ect. try and isolate the area by putting a piece of card board down on the ground and line up what is above it. Garages use a pressure tester on the cooling system to see where the leak is. I would guess water pump,or small bypass hose

How to change the radiator on a 2004 pacifica


Drain the antifreeze or coolant and then remove any parts obstructing the removal of the radiator itself, the cooling fan, etc. Unclamp the top and bottom radiator hoses, remove retaining bolts and remove. Replacement is opposite. Refill unit avoiding air pockets by running heater while car warms up and you are adding coolant.

If a water pump in a 2004 chrysler pacifica with 3.5l is leaking would it run out right below the crank pulley


This is common water pump failure on the pacifica, the bearings start to leak.
Since it is ran off the timing belt it is very common for the coolant to eat away at the timing belt, once that belt breaks your engine is destroyed.
This is not a repair that is OK to put off, replace the water pump timing belt and tensioner

How to put antifreeze in 2004 pacifica


If the car has been driven recently, let it cool for at least 15 minutes. There is a silver cap on the right side of the engine compartment. Undo it with a rag to protect yourself from pressure build up in the radiator. Fill the reservoir up to the (cold fill line) and to remove air from coolant system, I believe you need a 10mm socket and an extension to barely loosen the air bleeder located on the back of the intake manifold (where the radiator hose goes to the engine) Hope all goes well for you

What type of antifreeze should i use


I myself as a mechanic, prefer Prestone freeze. You can get it almost anywhere. AT for example K-mart it runs about 12 bucks. It is 50/50 mixture, which means you do not have to add water, it is already ready to poor and diluted to right mixture. However, at auto parts stores like Auto Zone, they also have a tester to check the strength level of it. You want to make sure that the mixture or ration of water to antifreeze is correct, for a couple reasons. If it not proper mixture of water and antifreeze, could cause break down of internal parts, which could over time, cause damage to radiator, hoses, thermostat etc.... So, best thing to do, after adding or before adding any antifreeze have it tested with a cheap tester they sell, and they can explain to you what the ratio should be for your car and size of radiator. I hope this helps. Mike

Thermostat is acting up is it easy to change


YES! DRAIN THE RADIATOR! THE THERMASTAT IS AT THE ENGINE SIDE OF THE TOP RADIATOR HOSE! REMOVE THE HOSE! AND THE THERMASTAT HOUSING HAS TWO BOLTS HOLDING IT ON! REMOVE THE TWO BOLTS, AND THE HOUSING! CLEAN THE AREA AROUND THE BASE OF THE HOUSING! SCRAP OFF THE OLD GASKET FROM THE HOUSING, AND ON THE ENGINE! REPLACE THE GASKET WITH A NEW ONE! PLACE THE NEW THERMASTAT IN THE SAME DIRECTION AS THE OLD ONE COMES OUT! REPLACE THE HOUSING, TIGHTEN THE BOLTS, AND PUT THE RADIATOR HOSE BACK ON, RETIGHTEN IT, AND FILL WITH ANTIFREEZE, AND CHECK FOR LEAKS!

My 1996 sc Saturn is still losing coolant after being in the shop twice change the water pump sensor and thermastat


Well if there is not a puddle of antifreeze underneath where it is most often parked, then I would suspect you have a head gasket or cracked block/head problem. If there is a puddle of antifreeze under the car, or under the passenger side carpet, then you can easily track the leak back to its source. I assume your shop did some basic checks for oil in antifreeze and vice versa and for an odor of antifreeze in the exhaust?

2004 chrysler pacifica water in floor board


the ventilation system of this vehicle has a drain. This may have been plugged from debris that lays in the cowl. I would suggest on your next oil change to have the mechanic clean the drain hose underneath the car.
