Why radiator wont hold water


Is your antifreeze leaking on the ground in the front of the motor ? There are many different things to do to find the right answer to this question. 1 : pull the motor dipstick. If oil mixes with the water - antifreeze the dipstick will look milky. If it does not. And looks good. Then 2: with water in the radiator don't put antifreeze in it keeps wasting $$ til leak is found. 3 : start motor look from under the front of the water pump with a flashlight if you have a dripping from a weep hole in the water pump bottom behind the fan. If you can't find a leak shut off the motor. Feel the bottom of the water pump if there is a presence of water you'll need a new one. If not .4:if the motor is over heating or has been blowing antifreeze out of the overflow hose along the side of the radiator. If so the thermostat may be stuck. Much cheaper repair.

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.

Water is leakingon my floor from my a/c


Water inside the vehicle can only be from a few causes, it is very likely that it is not from the AC since that drain, (condensation from evaporator, takes place outside the vehicle) usually from the location you describe it is more likely that it involves the heating core, (hot water from the engine is circulated through this unit when a valve is open to provide heat to the interior of the vehicle.

during the summer most of the time this valve is not open but closed, leaving an amount of water up to several quarts of water, (over time the heater core can become damaged and begin to leak often inside the vehicle.

This is likely the cause, of your trouble

Car is from 1987, a Subaru ,has a waterleak just after the fan, wat could be the problem?


If this LEAK is Just BEHIND the FAN (ON ENGINE SIDE this 1 Thermostat or 2 WATER PUMP, At This AGE I Would have to Bet On the WATER PUMP and if so Have the Thermostat Replaced at the SAME time this Will Help WINTERIZE it and Eliminate any Cooling System Related Problems.

Waterleak front passenger side , blocked drain holes?


Check first where exactly the water comes from. It may come from the drain from the AC since the evaporator is located at that side. It may just be accumulating more moisture. If it is towards the engine it may be a bad water pump.

Waterleak nopressure in hose loud knocking at top of engin


That doesn't sound good. It appears you have 1 of 2 issues. The no coolant is a bad/blown head gasket or cracked engine block. When the head gasket is bad or block is cracked the coolant leaks into the cylinder blows out the exhaust (have you noticed the smell of coolant or white smoke in the exhaust) then runs by the pistons and into the oil pan (check your oil level it is probably way high) where it mixes with your oil and reduces its viscosity/lubrication. After prolonged driving with coolant/water in the motor your bearing will wear prematurly and cause parts to become looser then they are (hense the knocking sound). If you continue driving with the knock the motor will have a mechanical breakdown and more then likely throw a rod. THis is usually a motor swap at this point. Some mechanics will replace the bearings but either or you will nee extensive work to correct. The head gaskets need to be replaced/checked and the head for warpage/seepage and possibly a cracked block plus fixing the damage to the lower end. Its usually cheaper to purchase a new/used motor as this is somehting that will cost $1000's of dollars so please pick a reputable mechanic for this kind of work... If you have an extended warranty this is the time to use it..
