Leaking anti freeze

My Aerostar is leaking anti freeze ( alot) replaced lower hose and clamps but I can't see where the leak is. It is not on top looks like it is leaking above the lower heater hose. I recently replaced the water pump and see no indications it is comeing from it. I can't find a scematice showing 3.0 V6 so I can trace up. Too much in the way to see what it could be any body know what it could be?

May want to see if you have a leaking heater core. Core is in the passenger compartment but there is a drain hole that leads to the engine compartment.

If you are not seeing any coolent of the floor when parked, the chances are that you may have an internal engine leak, such as leaking thru headgasket and coming out as steam. Take your van to PepBoys for pressure testing for which they carge about $40.

I have anti freeze leaking from the drive side of the engine on a 2008 Mini s clubman around the the thermostat area does any one know for sure if it's the thermostat housing or a hose that leaking?

if the hose clamp is tight it is possibly the housing, if you squeeze the hose near where the leak is you may be able to see the coolant leaking if the hose is split or has a pin hole in it

I HAVE A 94 ford escort that is leaking antifreeze on the drivers side floor

there is only so many things that can cause this and are you sure its anti-freeze and not washer fluid.just something else.a damaged heater core is usually what causes a leak inside the car.when the heater cores were replaced did the shop say there were signs of them leaking or couldn`t see anything.the other is coolant from a previous leak could have spray aroung the air ducting in the dash and has finally found a way out.but this should have been gone shortly afterwards and usually there is only a mist that is sprayed into the air ducts which usually shows up on the inside of the windows,so i don`t think this is the problem.if the hose clamps are loose were the hoses are fastened to the heater core spigots/tubes it could be leaking inside the cars air duct.and yes its unusall for anti-freeze to leak onto the drivers floor but stranger things have happened.

I changed the lower raditor hose. Standard remove and replace. No problem. Replaced water and 1 gallon of anti-freeze. Let system warm up and turned on heater. No problems. Test drove and no leaks. Next...

the sweet sickly smell is normal for new anti freeze.once you have run the car for a couple of miles the smell will dissipate.the white foamlike stuff is chalk/lime in the water,harmless.

Anti freeze leak

it could be anything, hoses are common, have the system pressure tested to determine the cause of the leak, a dealer can do this.

2002 chryler sebring is leaking anti freeze

It depends on where the leak is coming from. If the water pump is leaking, it has a hole on the bottom of it. You will see a trail of dried anti freeze coming from the bottom of it, indicating a bad water pump. It's best to dry everything off, crank it up and let it come to operating temp and check for where the leak is coming from. It may just be an old hose or loose clamp.

Anti-freeze leak

If it's leaking at the top of the engine down. Look at the top of the engine at the front and you'll see a bleeder valve on top a black housing. These housings like to come apart at the glued seams. If it's leaking at the lower part of the engine towards the front, it could be your water pump leaking. Check your oil and if you see the color of the oil looking like chocolate milk, your water pump needs replaced, the oil will need changing as well. Do a coolant system pressure test and see if your hoses somewhere are leaking. Also check for your surge tank leaking. This is the tank that you put coolant into.
