If you say no traces that tells me that you have most likely checked out your radiator well for no leaks. 2) You can loose water via the water pump.You can move or turn the pump by hand and if it gives or fills loose in anyway then the bearings are bad in the pump.3) Check your thermostat.The number one reason for a problem such as yours. If it sticks your motor will turn water into steam and you loose it that way. These are the only ways one can loose that much water on a daily basis.
Good Luck, Phil

Waterleak from timing belt cover


Water pump is, going or gone out. Best make sure the water is replaced daily if your going to drive it. Or the headgaskets next, & the trucks done. Make sure the water is IN THE RADIATOR" not just the overflow or reservoir container. Ive only had 1 stop leak, help get me {in emergency} from point A to B, but it didnt last long. Thats the powdered aluminum silicate? in a small 3- 4 inch tube. $1.99? You add it to hot water, & add to radiator.

Coolant loss, oil in water, heater not working, water pump has been replaced within a couple months


If you are getting oil in your radiator or reservoir, you most likely have a blown head gasket, or cracked block or head.

1993 Cavalier has coolant loss. It's losing the


you should have the cooling system pressure tested and inspected for a leak that may only show up under pressure.it could be a slow leak from the water pump,frost plug,head gasket which wouldn`t show up in the oil,heater core.it sounds like a small leak but this is the best way to start to find it.

Losing water from radiator cap have tried replaceing but problem still there is there diferent caps or is the fault with radiator local garage says no


You should not be losing water from your radiator cap. When the water in your system reaches such a pressure that it needs relief, it will normally flow into the overflow tank (the opposite occurs when the system is cold; water flows from the overflow tank into the radiator).
So, the first thing I would do is to get the proper cap for your radiator.
Second, I would check to make sure my cooling fan was running (I'm assuming that you lose water when the engine is hot).
Third, I would make sure to bleed the system if I had to add a significant amount of water (bleeder should be on top of the fitting that your top hose goes to; loosen and observe until water flows cleanly without bubbles, then close).
I have to think that your cap, new or not, is the problem.
Hope this helps you.

Overheating, losing antifreeze but not from radiator


It may be your heater core. the connections are plastic and do brake. Do you get hot air from your heater or defrost? Can you see the leak? Is it for a head-gasket? How's it running? Is it rough?

Radiator water loss


heat temperature evaporates water, therefore the water level will decrease on a more than daily basis as the vehicle is used. This is just one of the reasons for water loss (or usage). The radiotor drain plug migh be loose or worn. the plug is a white plastic like bolt on the base side of the radiator. Some hoses may be loose, worn or broken. the radiator itself may have a leak somewhere within the accordions. pour in some radiator stop leak.
also try coolant instead of water; coolant has a less evaporative density than water.

Volvo 1994 Radiator


hi my name is paul
these days most cars have a expansion tank under the bonnet or hood
this is were you fill it up with water it looks like a plastic bowl with a screw lid
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES UNDO CAP WHEN ENGINE IS RUNNING OR IS STILL HOT *** DANGER OF SCALDING DO NOT OVERFILL CHECK OUT MAX LEVEL
car manufacturers use expansion tanks because as the water in your engine warms up it expands under high pressure and fills up the expansion tank with excess water when the engine cools down the water cools and it shrinks and goes back into the cooling system hope this information has been usefull
regard paul
