My 2001 Pontiac Montana is leaking coolant. It's dripping down between the oil drain plug and the transaxle fluid pan. I can't see where exactly it is coming from. I've checked the water pump, radiato


Any where back there is a head gasket leak, unless it is at the very front of the engine(passenger side). Then it could be the timing chain cover. Use a mirror and bright light, You can find it.

Yes the timing cover gasket can leak coolant.

My 2001 Pontiac montana is leaking coolant when it cool of. Its dripping from the transmition passenger side. I croled underneath and found that the coolant is leaking from the pass side of the engine...


probably a gasket that seals coolant behind cover. I don't remember if there is a freeze plug there.
sometimes a head gasket leak can do the same but not very common.

Good chance you have a cracked head. (or possibly warped). There are many passages that are close enough together but don't share proximity to the cylinder, where coolant can migrate from a water jacket to an oil passage yet never enter a cylinder at all.You also need to check the block deck as well to make sure there aren't any defects there.

Still overheating after head is skimmed


waterpump? No movement of water/coolant, engine overheats. Engine overheats, warp heads. Next time you rip a head off, check gasket to see if head gasket failed or if there is a different cause to car overheating.

Water pump


Is it a 99 or an 03? Either way fairly simple. You will need to remove the splash shield on the passenger side wheel well. Removing tire is optional. If it is a 99, the pump should be located near the radiator. Loosen the bolts that hold the pulley on the pump before removing the belt. This will save you time later. Remove the belt, then remove the pulley. Take all the bolts out of the waterpump. Install in reverse order. If it is an 03, it is near the firewall side of the motor. Remove shield, loosen pulley bolts. The pulley will not come off until you get the water pump out, but you need to remove the bolts for it any way. Take the bolts out of the waterpump. You will need a pry bar to get the pump/pulley out. You can pry on the tensioner against the fenderwell and wiggle it out. Install in reverse order.

Vehicle is 1999 T/C Limited (3.8L, V6) Leaking in 2 places.


Hi Briseno,

Solenoid pack leaking,
Cooler Lines to Radiator leaking,
Timing cover leaking,
They suggest changing the water pump at the same time as the lower rad hose, timing chain, and valve cover gaskets. This is because it either looks like the water pump will die soon, preventative measures, or the shop is trying to rip you off for an hours labor.

Either way, I would suggest taking it to a mechanic, unless you're a bit of a handy man.

Hope I've helped, don't forget to rate.
