Front passenger floor wet from rain, where is leak at?


Do you have a sunroof or moonroof? If so the problem is going to be in the drain for that sunroof or moonroof. If you open the roof, on either front corner you will see a small circular hole. Take some compressed air and blow it through each of those holes. You may see debris come out of the bottom near the back of your wheel well. Take cup of water and slowly pour that near those holes and make sure it goes through. Usually when that drain is clogged the water from a rain storm will flood into the passenger cabin.

My 1990 honda accord is leaking out water from underneath it and also dries out water from the radiator and when i put water it boils up. What might be the issue


Your water pump may have failed, or your radiator hose may have a crack or pin hole. The best way to find out is to first fill your radiator, then run the car for about 5 to 10 minutes, then shut the car off and look underneath. First at the water pump. There is a small hole on the bottom of the pump, just behind the pully (this is called the wheep hole) If water is "wheeping" from this hole then your water pump is bad, if not do a visual check on your bottom and top radiator hoses to see if there is a problem with either of them. You may also want to inspect your radiator itself for leaks as well. You could have a cracked radiator.

Leaking ****** fluid, seems to be a hole in bottom, looks like factory hole, have I lost a plug?


Bottom of what & what kind of fluid? If it's greenish/yellowish like antifreeze - you may have lost the drain-plug at the bottom of your radiator. If it's oil - you've lost your oil pan drain-plug. If it looks like water - it may be condensation from your A/C & not actually a leak at all.

How do I drain the radiator in a 1998 Cadillac DeVille?


The radiator drain is on the drivers side all most to the bottom of the tank. Remove the bottom shield, then gently move the lines that may be blocking access to the drain plug. The plug has 2 wings, Just loosen it the plug does not have to come all the way out. You may have to put a small screwdriver in the drain hole (on the bottom of the side tank of the radiator to get the radiator to drain) Also remove the cap on the surge tank.Hope this helps

How to replace the radiator fluid


- Make sure the engine is cold and not running.
- Drain the radiator fluid by opening the drain plug at the bottom of the radiator or for a better/faster drainage and cleaning, carefully remove the bottom radiator hose by first loosening the hose clamp.
- Open the radiator cap and water rinse/flush the radiator core via a garden water hose until you no longer see any dirty water coming out of the bottom hose (or drain plug).
- Flush the radiator over flow (plastic) container by overfilling it with your garden water hose.
- remove garden water hose, carefully refit the bottom radiator hose, tighten the bottom radaitior hose clamp, refit/tighten the radiator drain plug.
- refill the radiator with approved radiator fluid for your climate and also refill the radiator overfow tank to the indicated level..
- Refit radiator cap
- Start your engine until it warms up and check for any water or steam leaks. Refit and or replace any faulty hoses or radiator (regulator) cap!
It is not difficult and have fun!

1997 Cevrolet Cavalier 2.4 liter engine leaks antifreeze


If it is the water pump it will have a rad hose attached to it. There is supposed to be a small hole in the bottom of the water pump. When it starts leaking, it's time to replace the pump. You can do it yourself. A few wrenches and a couple hours is all you need. If you are unsure pick up a Haynes manual for your car when you get the new pump.

Coolant leak under the motor


The leak is probably coming from your radiator's drain hole. Try looking under neath your car at the bottom of the radiator and see if the plug is in (driver side).

No, what you're seeing is the weep hole leaking on the water pump. This is the warning sign that the water pump is worn out. Don't use any stop leak or anything to attempt to stop it. You'll be waisting your time. You'll have to replace water pump at this point.
