SOURCE: Intake manifold cracked and leacking coolant (External)

You can clean the area really good with degreaser and apply JB Weld but that is only a temporary fix it will leak again

Toyota Camry v6 1998 overheated now have a clattering noise in top end at 2000 rpm


Get a compression test done to eliminate a warped head or cracked head . Hopefully you have not cracked the block as this costs 6000 dollars AUD to fix or $3500 AUD for a Reco Engine.
If it is an alloy head the two metals cool at different rates and warping or cracking can occur. $$$$$$$ costly $$$$$$ to fix

Signs blown head gasket


Cracked head means replace your engine, head gasket if you do it yourself approx $150 , dealership cost $800. Remove the oil cap on the top of the engine block , put your finger in and see what color the oil is if it's dark it's not a cracked head , if it's white and or milky looking, you have water in your oil, cracked head !

Water appears to be leaking from behind the water pump. Could this be a gasket? Compression tests are showing no leaks or cracks in the aluminum block.


Compression Test -- isn't for cracked heads or blocks or
even a head gasket,depending on what is taking place

I would remove what is necessary to get a closer look
You may be there a few days,as I would expect a bad
water pump or a gasket

Your going to do the pump anyway, as well as a timing belt
hoses etc,once your in there

So you may want that done by a repair shop
Timing belt may have to come off to get to water
pump
Not a job for you, if you never did one before

We replaced the theromostat and the radiator but it is still leaking under the car on the drivers side


Leaking water on teh drivers side indicates a cracked block or cracked head in most cases. Unless you have a water injected motor, I don't remember Ford using one, there are no water ports on that side of the motor. It could be the water pump leaking and being pushed back when the vehicle is running so check for leaks around the water pump. You need to check the heads, side of the engine block and the freeze plugs to make sure there are no cracks or leaks around the head gasket seal.

Leaking coolant.. its hard to see where it is coming from.. it leaks out heavily when car is cranked,, it looks like it is comin from right behind the belt drive (the bigger one) is that the water pump?


This does sound like your water pump is leaking, or your head gasket has busted on the outside edge. I would check the water pump first, as it is fairly common for the seal to bust and leak coolant from the water pump.

My 2000 dodge stratus starting overheating every other week due to water pump failing. before it was replaced it got hot pulled over it started to shake then stulled. Replaced water pump did timing belt...


Most likely a cracked head or block '
When engines overheat the heads warp and something has to give. Even with just one overheating incident the heads can warp. You say you changed the timing belt, I think you mean the belt that runs the alternator and water pump. Big difference there. You might be able to save the engine with a big overhaul by pulling the heads and having them boiled out and pressure tested for cracks. It is also possible that the engine blocked cracked in which case you are looking at about $2000.00 to replace the engine. Oil on the plugs usually means water in the oil and oil in the water. If all those things are going on it looks like a disaster.

The water pump was replaced,thermostat replaced,car spews water from the overflow tube and emptys the water from the engine!


Probably either head gasket blown, or crack in head or block. Have you had the engine hot lately? Look for white smoke out of exhaust that will confirm head gasket or cracked block or head.

Anti freeze/coolant leasking from the front lower part of the engine, is this the end of my motor???? Its 2000 LHS w/3.5 ltr. V6, thanks.


It sounds from what i can make out that it's leaking from your water pump and will need to be replaced if you mean the engine of the engine where the serpentine belt is. Before you go replacing the water pump, inspect the hose clamps first to ensure that you cover all bases. Good luck and keep me posted, and don't add any radiator stop leak. They just clog up the coolant jackets and restrict the flow of coolant.

Block liner crack


Most cracked blocks will put the coolant into the crankcase and you would see a milky colored oil. Thoough it can also crack and allow the engine to burn the coolant. In this case, at the rate you are saying the overheating is occuring, you should easily be able to see white smoke from the exhaust.

More than likely than not the cylinder is pressuring the radiator causing the overheating, you can verify this by removing the radiator cap with the engine cold and placing the palm of your hand where the cap was. Start the engine, within less than a minute you will likely notice pressure building.

This can be caused by blown head gaskets, cracked heads or cracked block. The way to diagnose a cracked head/block is to disassemble it and send it to a machine shop capable of doing a magnaflux on the part.

It sounds like they stood behind thier repair and did the right thing with the second repair.
So your options are to pay to have a second shop diagnose the problem or believe the first and replace the engine and or car.

Sorry about your misfortune.
