Check if the water pump needs replacing. Sounds like the pump, but will have to be checked.

SOURCE: Radiator is empty

Always fill you radiator & resevoir with a 50/50 mix of coolant / water. Your vehicle should have dexcool which is a red/orange colored coolant. You can buy a universal equivalent which is premixed and is yellow (not green). It is safe to add universal coolant but not green antifreeze. Premixed (it will say on jug) would be your safe bet. Fill the radiator, add to overflow tank to full cold line, run vehicle until fully warmed up. Let cool back down & then recheck.
Don't forget to check for leaks....it is not normal to have your coolant get that low. You likely are leaking coolant.

If this helps please rate me!
You can do it.

SOURCE: im leaking transmission fluid from what appears to

Make sure you don not run low on transmission fluid in your transmission. Low transmission fluid will cost you a new transmission. You have the transmission line that connects to the upper passenger side or the radiator and the lower passenger side of the radiator. Determine which line has gone bad and you can buy a rubber transmission line hose at most Auto Parts store like Parts Source. Cut off out the section with a pipe cutter that has corroded through and replace with the transmission hose. Make sure you tell them it's a transmission line hose your looking for and don't use any other hose and double clamp with a compression clamps at ether end. If it's the connection at the radiator that has gone bad, replace that end and do that same as you would to sectioning off the the corroded line and try not to have more then 3 inches of repaired section. What ever you do, do not add any stop leak, this will create problems with the shift solenoids and check valves in your valve body in the transmission causing a transmission replacement soon after adding. Good luck and keep me posted.

No heat


Check for the following causes:
  • Insufficient coolant - i. e., not enough to permit flow in the heater core.
  • Anti-freeze concentration (too much water will allow the liquid to freeze in the radiator, heater core or hoses). This can also cause engine overheating.
  • Collapsed hose to heater core (check both hoses).
  • Bad thermostat on engine.
  • Heater blower not working.
  • Heater door not opening.

Water pump 2004 suburban, coolant has a slow leak. Had the coolant bottle pressure tested and it was OK. System pressure tested and it was not holding pressure but the mechanic could not tell if it was...


Possible leak areas waterpump, heater core, intake manifold gasket, radiator or hoses. Waterpumps have what they call "weep holes" which is an early warning system to prevent major damage when pump fails. The weep hole needs to be inspected from below and is usual behind waterpump pulley. If it's your heater core, you should smell anti freeze inside truck and in most cases windshield will fog up. Radiator could be pin hole to front side of radiator (which is buried behind AC condenser & grill) and if it was head gasket, intake manifold symptoms would be coolant in oil OR lots of white smoke from exhaust. Try parking it on a clean dry surface and see if you can narrow down area where leak is coming from.

Low coolant


Regular Prestone or Peak Anti-Freeze. You should always pour it in the coolant tank, as the radiator needs coolant, it is drawn in from the coolant tank to the radiator, and also the reverse, so you only want to fill it up to the "FULL" level on the bottle. Recheck it after it's been driven.

My heat doesn't work in my 1993 toyota corolla


Could be vapor lock, or air lock/bubble. First make sure the coolant is topped off, never do this when the car is hot! Take off the radiator cap and poor in anti-freeze, replace cap, now start the vehicle COLD remove cap and pour in more anti freeze if needed. When the engine runs it will **** anti-freeze(coolant) and therefore you may need to pour in a little more. Now wait until the car is hot and check for heat. If you have ever heard a gargling sound or bubbling when you turn your car off, this is a sign of low coolant and or air lock. If you still do not have heat, make sure your coolant lines by the engine are connected as well as any electrical wires going to your temp control valve located between your coolant hoses where coolant runs through it. If you still do not have heat, your water pump may be failing, how ever if your engine does not overheat, then do not replace it. Lastly there is a control valve that opens and closes a flap door to allow/block heat. If this controller failed then you will need to have it replaced.
