Overheating and when the fluid is being refilled it is coming out the bottom of the vehicle.


Most likely your heater hoses or radiator / lower radiator hose has been worn through or otherwise unclamped from your engine. The fluid could be seen as coming out of the bottom even though the tear or break is at the back, side or top of the engine block.

Soak up the fluids up after the engine cools. Dry off everything in and around the engine with rags or whatever you can spare. Then as you slowly add fluid you may be able to pinpoint the exact spot where the fluid is leaking. That's your repair spot.

It is VERY unlikely your engine is actually broken. The worst case would be a rusted through freeze plug (these are located below the exhaust manifold to keep frozen fluid from breaking your block in extremely cold, say minus 50 degrees, temperatures). Those take a mechanic to replace. Parts are cheap. Labor should not be more than a few hundred dollars at most. Probably less.

Where is the drainedge for the radioter


For a 2001 Buick Regal GS 3.8 Liter, Supercharged engine:

First, let engine cool some. Second, locate small drainage hole at the bottom left/drivers side, of the radiator. From the bottom of this small drain hole, go straight back toward rear of radiator, then up about 1 1/2 to 2 inches up. (Have a drain pan or pail handy, to catch the old antifreeze.) You'll find a dark colored drain nut. Use a larger, correct sized socket ratchet wrench & loosen this fitting a turn or so, counter clockwise. Old antifreeze will begin to come out the bottom drain hole. The more you loosen the fitting, the faster the fluid flow out. I wouldn't remove the drain plug completely, or you'll loose control of the draining flow rate.

I just changed my anti-freeze just last week. I also changed the 2 large radiator hoses & smaller 2' overflow hose at the same time, as long as I was doing the job. They had never been changed before. I also used new hose clamps & a small packet of "radiator hose grease", from Autozone.. I drove the car up onto front car ramps to make it easier. I used safety jack stands for extra care. " You-Tube" shows some, "how to videos", that are helpful.

The old hose clamps are difficult to get to. (You'll need a few tools, some time & patience.) To get to the upper clamp, near the right/passenger side of the of the car, near the battery, I removed the outer serpentine belt & tension pully. I then removed the factory installed spring tension clamp, with the help of an adjustable battery pliers. The bottom of this hose wasn't too bad to get to. On the left/drivers side of car, remove black air intake box to access upper clamp. Remove the black metal brace bar, the will allow access to the air intake black box.

I also changed the small overflow 2 foot long hose & 2 clamps, that goes from radiator cap area, back to the overflow white plastic tank, close to passenger firewall. I removed the overflow tank to clean it out as well. I drained the fluid & changed the 3 hoses & clamps. I then placed all removed parts back where they belong, including white plastic overflow tank, tension pully & outer serpentine belt, air intake black box & metal diagonal brace, contacting air intake box. I flushed the system with some Prestone Radiator Cleaner & clean water. Start car & get up to temp., then run for about 10 minutes. Let cool, then drain again. I flushed my car at least 2-3 times after this, until the drain water ran clear.

The best price on a 5 year/150,000 mile anti freeze, came from Wal-Mart. I then mixed about 50/50 with Distilled water, as suggested on the bottle. All went well & no leaks! I took my time and did a thorough job. Good luck!

Medium colored green fluid 2-3 drops every other day the size of a nickel, what could it be its on the passener side of car in front, 2006 hyndai sonata


that would be anti-freeze. check hoses to radiator and heater tubes. alot of those cars ran metal tubes about 3/4 inch diameter with stubby rubber hoses for for connections one of those could be dripping. You will probably have a better chance at finding leak from the underside of car

Need to replace 97 toyota camray radiator how do i go about it


Drain the coolant & recycle. Anti-freeze is toxic so please clean up any spills. Remove the top covers & trim to gain access to the fan & radiator. Disconnect the fan/sensor plug-ins and any other wiring to prepare the electric fan assembly for removal. You could have a line or two secured to a part of the fan assembly that will need to be removed. You've got a few screws holding in the fan assembly & then it pulls up & out. You'll need to remove the hoses & lines if auto trans, need to be raised or plugged to keep them from draining. fluid will drain out of the radiator once lines are removed so you'll need to catch that small amount of fluid in a pan or onto a shop towel. Now the radiator should be exposed with two mounts, one on the top left & one on the top right that have a few bolts to remove, lift up the mounts and the radiator will pull up & out. It fits into rubber grommets at the base, you'll need to line those up when reinstalling. I think that's it. Good Luck

What is the hose for that comes out from the top of the radiator for and where does it go connected


This hose connects the engine to the radiator. Coolant flows thru the thermostat located where the hose attaches to the engine into the radiator to cool it.

Car leaking coolant


First of all ensure that your car is leaking coolant fluid, and what is dripping is not just water condensation from the air conditioner.
If you have a coolant liquid leak, it can be from one of the ducts leading to radiator , from water pump or radiator itself. Check liquid levels, and if you have a leak have the car inspected by a qualified mechanic.
A broken water pump, for example, can cause your motor to blow in few miles.
