Antifreeze leaking from gasket under engine

Leaking from bottom of engine gasket that runs around the circumfrance of the shape of the bottom... maybe a 30 inch gasket. Leak changes place in gasket as to level of car. It could be coming from some place else, but I looked high and low...twice...and never found any other place where a leak was coming from.

SOURCE: Car is leaking antifreeze from underneath of car

watch for leaks and follow them after you drive i would geuss checking your thermostate housing both parts, the hoses that go to the heater core by the throttle body and the hose that goes to the throttle body, im guessing this is the turbo, if it is a non turbo it would be a hoses the waterpump or the oring that goes into the waterpipe on the front of the block, just get in there and take a good luck and remember the rules of gravity =) good luck man and if you need any parts for it let me know we got alot of these parts cars out in our yard

SOURCE: car loses oil checked under car no leak checked

Normal oil consumption for a car is about 1 quart per 3,000miles. If you can calculate how much of a quart low you are per oil change you will be able to tell whether your oil consumption is excessive or not.

Check out your freeze plugs. They are thin metal cups that press fit into the side of the block. Use a mirror and a light to inspect while the engine is running.

I have aan intermitint antifreeze leak from under my car. their is no hose leaking and the radiator is not leaking


I don't know what you are driving..but sometimes the leak that you see under the car starts in the front area and runs to the lowest point and drops off...try getting under the car or up on a lift..follow the tale tale signs of the water/antifreeze running olong the underneath of your car...my bet it your water pump is starting to go bad..they have a small weep hole at the bottom of its shaft..if the seal/bearing is wearing water will start to leak and run along the underside of the motor..good luck..

Antifreeze dripping from the gasket around bottom of engine


Sounds like a blown head gasket they were really bad for blowing. Check your dipstick if the oil is light brown or white or water on it its a blown head gasket. not a cheap fix

My 1995 F250 is leaking radiator fluid under the engine behind the fan


Is antifreeze coming from "weep" hole in bottom of case under shaft nose?
is it coming from the heater hose (small hose coming of side and going into firewall to heater core inside engine compartment?
is it coming from bad gasket between pump and front case?

get a paper towel and dry these areas then start engine. when it starts leaking that will tell you if you need to change the water pump (gasket leak or weep hole shaftseal leak) or if you just need to replace/repair heater hose.

Antifreeze in the motor wut do i do?


It's normal for the check engine light to be on when the car's engine is not running. If the car is turning over but won't start under its own power, then there maybe another problem unrelated to antifreeze being low in level. Did you ever notice white smoke coming from the tailpipe indicating a head gasket leak? If so, then the antifreeze is likely coming out of the tailpipe when running, or there is a slow leak in something say like the water pump gasket or shaft. It's a good idea to check what codes are tripped using an obd-II scanner to point you in the right direction. Good luck on this repair.

Where is the antifreeze going? cracked head or blown head gasket? This is a 4.0 with 217,000 miles . Did they have a problem with heads cracking??? Houston


Faulty head/head gaskets will usually show up as oil in your antifreeze. It'll be a brownish grey color with darker "spots" floating around. You could be leaking out of your water pump or w. pump gasket. It may only leak here while it's running and a small enough leak would be obliterated by the fan, leaving no visible evidence. Feel around the bottom of the gasket and see if it's wet when you park it next time. Make sure your radiator cap is tight and in good shape. Could be evaporating from there.

Antifreeze leaks out as soon as added to engine. car shuts off as soon as all antifreeze leaks out. what could be wrong? when antifreeze leaks out so badly


Depending on the mileage & other facters unseen I would hesitate a guess! You may have a blown head gasket, A frost plug leak, a water pump leak. Have a rad pressure test done to ascertain the leak location, but you can first check the tail pipe for antifreeze smell, if you smell it you have a head gasket problem. Also check the oil dipstick to see if you have any traces of white residue, an indication of a head gasket leak. I hope this helps & good luck!
