Yes, it is leaking whilst running. You need to locate the source of the leak. Do not drive the car until the leak is repaired as you may overheat and damage the engine.

Does any of the heater hoses run thru untop of fender well? I never worked on your type of car, but i have worked on some that had the heater hoses that ran thru there might be worth investagating. When the water pump went out the last time did it leak? and if it did was the coolant running down the fender well like it is now?

Sounds like you have a defective water thermostat as long as nothing is seen physically leaking when it is warming up in the first 2-5 minutes.

If you are a do it yourselfer, carefully remove the thermostat without damaging the gasket.

Replace it as preventative maintenance if it has not been replaced from 50-95k miles. It can be lower but that is a good range when you replace one.

Ensure that there is no leak, checking all the coolant lines and the radiator.
If there is no leak and the car is consuming coolant liquid, then you may have a faulty head gasket.
What happens is that the head gasket allows coolant leaking and being vapourised inside the engine.
To find out if your head gasket is starting to go you can perform a compression test.

Regards.

My car is running hot but all my fluids are at the correct levels.


hi connie.... One possible reason a car for overheating is that antifreeze is not circulating through the engine as it should. Antifreeze serves two purposes. It not only keeps the engine temperature level during the winter (preventing the engine from freezing) , it also keeps cars from overheating during the warmer months. It's always a good idea to periodically look under one's car to see if there are any materials dripping from the car or if your car leaves any puddles or stains when parked. If so, dealing with the problem at this point may avoid ever having to deal with an overheating car problem. Antifreeze loss can "sneak up on a person" though. You can see no leaks or evidence of drips and still be low on antifreeze. Use, evaporation and time are enough to lessen its supply. If you forget to replace antifreeze you can be driving along and suddenly notice that you car is overheating. An ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure. If you want to avoiding overheating, make checking your antifreeze level a habit. J.

LOW COOLANT LIGHT COMES ON SOMETIMES AND TEMP GUAGE SHOWS ENGINE GOING TO OVERHEAT. HEATER GETS COLD. IS IT THE THERMOSTAT?


There may be a thermostat problem, but your symtoms indicate low coolant level. When coolant is too low, it will not circulate, so you get no heat in car, and the coolant remaining in engine block overheats because no cool fluid coming in.
You need to fill the system up properly then look for leaks.
With cold engine, open radiator cap. Fill with antifreeze directly in radiator. Start engine, top up rad if level drops. Put heat control on Hot. Fan on low, heat on high. Gently rev engine and top up rad as needed. IF as engine heats up, it starts kicking fuild violently out of radiator, then the thermostat is bad. if not, then recap radiator, top up overflow bottle and you're done. Look under car for any sign of leaks. Steady dripping indicates a leak, then address that.

Antifreeze leak at lower raditor housing? antifreeze dripping down oilpan by dipstick tube and aircondition compressor only when hot.


you may have a water pump that is starting to fail. Look for the water pump that's driven by the fan belt. look at the housing of the water pump there is a relief hole that they drill in the casting and when the pump begins to fail it will drip out this hole. If that's where your leak is, it's time to change the pump.

There is water dripping on my foot when my foot is on the gas pedal this has just started what can this be?


It could be that the drain that removes water when the a/c evaporator drips is plugged and it is backing up into the passenger compartment.

If it happens when it rains it could be a leaky windshield or water leaking in through the cabin air filter.

Antifreez is leaking, not at radiator or overfill


If it has a 3.1L or 3.8L engine there is a good chance that its leaking fron the intake manifold seen on the right of the engine when facing it. Where abouts does it drip on the ground at ?
