Check your oil and see if it has a creamy brown color.If it does then check the intake manifold gasket for the leak.I have seen and fixed many of these tahoes and GM pickups with the same problem.

What would cause my 2001 Saturn Sc1 to overheat without leaking antifreeze?


Clogged radiator, worn out water pump fins, oil pump failing, head gasket blown and leaking into the cylinders, thermostat stuck closed.

Radiator overheating


If the overheating is only occasional, it sounds like the radiator still has some blockage that moves around and plugs up again. Try flushing it backwards again. If it continues, consider a new radiator. A radiator is cheaper than head gasket work, which may happen if it keeps overheating.

Car is overheating after short drive (3/4 hour) had thermostat changed, put new coolant in radiator. radiator was pressure tested no leaks? car ok short drive to store. resevoir seems always overfilled...


The expansion tank will be more full when hot. Let it cool down and check it then. The level in the axpansion tank should go lower. If not then you may have a faulty radiator cap.
Also have you checked the cooling fan? Engine driven? With the engine off, spin the blade. Does it spin real freely? Continue to spin for more than a quick second? May have a bad fan clutch. They have fluid inside and the fluid can leak out of the seals after age.

My 1999 Alero must have a leak somewhere because the thermostat gauge rises every few days. I put coolant in it at least 1 a week. I had a new water pump and thermostat put on it, but it is still...


CHECK AROUND WATER PUMP AREA.AND THERMOSTAT HOUSING FOR LEAKS.THE MECHANIC WHO PUT THE WATER PUMP ON MAY FORGOT TO PUT SEALANT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE WATER PUMP GASKET CAUSING LEAKS.LOOK AROUND THERMOSTAT HOUSING FOR LEAKING.IF THERMOSTAT SEAL WAS DAMAGE DURING INSTALLATION IT WILL CAUSE LEAKING.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND RADIATOR .CHECK RADIATOR TOP AND BOTTOM HOSES FOR LEAKS AND CHECK HEATER PIPES AND HEATER CORES HOSES FOR LEAKS.IF ALL HOSES GOOD.CHECK FOR LEAKING CORE PLUGS.

Put a new thernostat on it and its still over


it will cause it to overheat if you are losing a lot of water otherwise it should not, fix the leaking hose first & see that fixes the problem,if not you need to investigate further,it could be a blocked radiator or a faulty water pump......hope this helps.....cheers

Small coolant leak at front of engine hose area, not always maybe 1 out of 5 times driving to work.


If you can narrow down where the leak is coming from, it will be easier for you to fix, but it is most likely either a minor radiator leak, or your water pump. You can put a can of radiator stop leak in your vehicle, such as bars leak. It wont hurt anything. If the leak continues, and appears to be coming from the engine area, the water pump is failing, but also check around the thermostat housing, near where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine

Leaking coolant from around water pump just put in new radiator on monday and no leaks from it or hoses, think is weap hole in bottom of water pump.


If it's the weap hole the pump is going bad. That hole is designed to leak as a "warning" that the pump is going to fail.

My car is over heating and cokkent oil is leaking


Cars generally overhead when engine coolant is below acceptable levels. That can be caused from leakage, blockage or equipment malfunction.

  • Inspect coolant level in the vehicle's reservoir or radiator.
  • Inspect radiator and heater hoses for cracking causing leaking.
  • Inspect the radiator for leaking.
  • Inspect the inside of radiator for smudge build-up, a sure sign that the water jackets might be restricted.
  • Inspect water pump for leaking or broken belt (serpentine belt)
  • Check to ensure water pump properly functioning, does the pump's pulley turn?
Repair or replace any faulty item.

1998 plymouth voyager3.3l has leak at water pump behind pulley


First of all, changing thermostat will not fix your water pump leak. Obviously defective pump or install. Be sure to take a closer look, in case it's a loose hose in the area. Leaking from behind pulley, usually calls for new pump. What I would do though, is take it back to original repair shop & question them about any warranty that may apply. Some have 1 yr. some have limited lifetime etc. If you can obtain a copy of work done, the part number on the pump should give you what you need to call (or shop can call) and inquire about that particular part number as far as warranty goes. (I'd make the call myself, ahead of time, so I know.) That way, perhaps the shop who originally installed it may feel some kind of obligation to replace it at a reduced fee, as in labor only. ($27 for new pump) . Be nice, play a little dumb, it may help, and if they want you to pay the whole shot over again, go elsewhere for estimate.
