Water/coolant leak above the catalytic converter

There is a metal line running above the catalytic converter and a short piece of hose connecting the line. What is that line for? it looks like a transmission cooler line. Can anyone tell me what the line is for.

If your having to add coolant
Then this is a line running back to the rear heater core,
if this is by the exhaust id recommend replacing it with a steel line /ruber hose might not handle the heat.

Tip

Engine coolant leak


There are no coolant lines etc running on the lower part of the engine.Usually water will leak from above and run down finally dripping from under the engine. Coolant will not leak from the "engine" it leaks from a hose or thermostat housing.


Start from the top and work down. Check each hose by feeling with your hand. Look for a wet spot. wipe the hose with a cloth to clean if necessary. If you think you found it dry the area and check again.Sometimes you need to move the hose around to open a small tear and expose the leak source.

Tip: park overnight on a piece of cardboard. Look for the spot where it is dripping. This will give you and idea where to look.

If a hose leaks around a clamp tighten the clamp. Screw clamps can be tightened. The spring style can not. Once moved the spring type often leak. If moved try moving to the exact position it was in using the impression left on the pipe. I could suggest though that your replace it with a screw type clamp.

If you find a torn hose you may be able to disconnect, cut the end and reattach. If too short replace.

Check where each hose connects to the engine. This will be the thermostat housing and the heater supply line. If a housing is leaking try gently tightening (careful they crack). Or replace the gasket. Use a new gasket do not just use gasket sealer.

Check at the radiator. There will be a heat sensor there. They screw into the radiator. If it is leaking try to gently tighten (take care you can break it). If that does not work remove the sensor and put Teflon tape on the threads. That should do it.

If you don't see a leak at all. Start the engine and run. This will build pressure in the cooling system. Look for leak using the same process. Careful as the engine is hot.

2005 buick lesabre AC hose plugged leaking water onto passenger floorboard. How do I fix this?


You need to find the drain pan line that comes through the firewall. Open the hood and search for the line on the passenger side firewall. The line is probably clogged from insects, animals, or other gunk. use a short piece of dowel or wire to unclog the line and allow the pan to drain to the outside of the vehicle.

ENGINE COOLANT LEAK FROM BACK OF ENGINE WHERE IS THE WATER PUMP LOCATED


Hopefully just a water hose or connection leak...some parts of these hoses are now metal, and rust away...these factory metal hoses are dealer, and salvage yard only...Many times you can replace the entire metal line with a rubber line...as long as you can connect to both sides...there is a water hose that runs under the coolant overflow, to the firewall...(many times the culprit)...the water pump on your motor is under a pulley located on the front of your engine...Hope this helps.

1998 Kia Sportage heater return hose location....


Actually it does make sense. All you need to bypass the heater core is a section of pipe that can be used to connect the Heater core Supply and return lines together. All they actually do is make a loop using the heater core as the turnaround. This is normally 5/8 hose and any metal pipe section can be used as long as the hose fits on it and you can put a water clamp on it to hold it in place. In fact, if you have a control valve on your heater core line going into a piece of hose connected to the Firewall you can disconnect that and use it to connect the two lines together in a pinch. radiator flush kits come with a piece that attaches to these lines for flushing the system. Your supposed to cut the line and put this part in between the two pieces but you can just as easily disconnect the lines from the firewall and attach them with this piece. A Yard water hose slicing kit, metal, would work just as well as long as you have to correct size. Good Luck.

1987 HONDA ACCORD LX WATER LEAK


Yes, there is a "bypass outlet" coolant hose that connects from the water pump inlet pipe (metal pipe that runs from back of water pump along engine block to lower radiator hose) to the intake manifold.

I am not sure about the "black box" - not enough detail.
