SOURCE: leaking antifreeze

could quite possibly be the water pump. There is a weep hole under the shaft, when the bearings go, the antifreeze leaks out at that point. Try checking w/ motor off using a small mirror to get a look under the water pump. If u see corrosion, or it's wet, get a new pump installed. Let me know what u find. good luck countrycurt0

SOURCE: leak

possibly a rusted radiator that you need to either patch up using a radiator repair kit or replace it ?

there are a couple of ways to fix the problem. first you can use pepper to plug the hole if it is a small leak. If it isn't, then use radiator stop leak. You can find this at a parts store

SOURCE: I have a 1994 Honda accord ex. It is leaking antifreeze

If your antifreeze is leaking into your engine oil, it will destroy the engine quickly. Check the level of both. But...you need to get a pressure gauge on it to apply pressure to the cooling system to see where the coolant is going first. White smoke is a sign of coolant in the engine oil.

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.

Water leaking from bottom left of 350 engine


Sounds like a bad freeze plug but running the heat should not affect it. A cracked block is unlikely unless it has been frozen with not enough antifreeze. Does it only leak when running or does it also leak sitting still?

If you have white smoke coming out your exhaust, it has to be a head gasket. The symptoms of an intake manifold leak are either and external leak (leaking on the ground) or water in the crank case (mixing with the oil and making it look like chocolate milk-shake) A leaking intake gasket will not cause the antifreeze to enter the combution chambers.

To diagnose which head is leaking, you can remove the valve covers and remove all the rocker arms then put compressed air into each spark plug hole and watch the radiator for bubbles. Looking at the spark plugs may also tell you without having to do this...The spark plug in the leaking cylinder will be very white on the electrode.

I have a 1997 Chevy Blazer that is overheating and is leaking coolant. It is not the rad hose because I have already checked that. It is a part that is attached to the engine block, directly above the...


Ihave a 96 s10 lt blazer First of all the steering coloum is now where near the engine block and the bracket you mention is for the throttle cable and the cruise control cable and has no gasket for any kind of a seal with the intake manifold. The 4.3 and most chevy engines have a problem with the intake manifold gaskets if you are over heating then likely the intake manifold gasket is leaking you should check your engine oil for antifreeze that will look like a fomey white yellowey residue and also check the radiator for engine oil floating on the top under the radiator cap. This is a big problem with chevy you can't let espesecly the 4.3 ever over heat.There is olny 8 bolts that hold the manifold to the block and there all in the four corners nun in the middle Y ou can save the engine if you fix it now but it is the intake manifold gasket that is leaking

Bent A-Arm on a 1991 Chevy S10 Blazer...repair$???


I would guess $500 - $1500 to do this job depending on how much damage was done when the arm was bent.

"SMALL OIL AND TRANSMISSION LEAK AND THE RADIATOR LEAKS OUT SLOWLY." -- the radiator leak could get bad enough to require repair.

I think $400 obo is an okay price, can't get much lower for a vehicle that will get you to the store and back.
