SOURCE: put water into radiator pours out of overflow

Make sure your drain plug at the bottom of the radiator is tight and un damaged. The 2 aluminum lines are for your automatic transmission and should not be messed with.

SOURCE: will the engine lock up if the freeze plugs are leaking?

The advantage of the rubber expansion plug over a regular freeze plug is they are easier to install when there is very little room to work. But either way, you have to get to the old plug to remove it. You may have to work on it from underneath the car with the car up on jackstands or blocks. If the leak is along the lower side of the engine block, it probably is a freeze plug.

SOURCE: coolant leak, coolant poured out bottom of car..problem? pump?

Sure could be. Or a hose or a gasket somewhere.
You'll need to fill up the radiator and run the engine to look for the leak.
It may have to get up to operating temp before you see anything.

How can i get condensation out of gas

Hello Gary William Hill Sr.,

Water in the fuel is really more common than you'd imagine... in reasonable quantities is no problem that cant be easily handled.

Amazon, Costco or your friendly Chevron Station... (below)

Any alcohol based (most of them) fuel additive will absorb minimal amounts of water... and pass quite harmlessly through (MOST) fuel systems

(all MY caution is about 25+ vintage vehicles).

The alcohol "absorbs" the water... Running gas with methanol should also accomplish the deed for you... assuming you have a MODERN METHANOL capable fuel system.

If it is an OLDER CAR (vintage)... been sitting around... avoid the
MODERN METHANOL stunt... bad idea...
(eats old style fuel lines... among other things).

But all winter (above water) should NOT pose any major issues.
If you want to be super careful shoot a little penetrating oil into your SPARK-PLUG holes before turning on that ignition.

The fool-proof way is to drain the bottom of the tank (preferably) before any corrosion starts (routine preflight fuel check).

Hope this helps... Work/Drive safely.

1997 Chrysler concorde LX 3.5 Put water in reservoir and it came pouring out under the middle of engine and now car won't start...Radiator is fine so...Any clues as to why or what is wrong with it?

You say the head gaskets are fine, yet the compression is not.
How do you know the gaskets are not blown ?
Normally, when an engine runs hot, the gaskets expand and cannot contract, and the heads warp so they are not flat. You loose compression and usually have coolant in the cylinders.
You can also loose compression but not have coolant leaking into the block. It depends on what warped.

How do I winterize my 2003 Winnebago Minnie?

You need to blow the all ware lines clean with a air gun nozzle. Empty/ drain all water storage units and pour windshield washer fluid or pool safe antifreeze in toilets and let stand. I would remove all batteries and stored with a 2Amp trickle charger until spring

How do i put water in my radiator?

you need to replace thermostat and radiator cap.look under hood around engine compartment.look for a radiator cap near radiator,add 50/50 antifreeze and water to coolant system to bring up boiling point.pure water will cause engine run hotter because water evaporate away,remove radiator pour coolant in the radiator until coolant stop dropping in the radiator now some vechicle pour coolant in the coolant overflow jug,pour coolant until coolant level stop dropping and the coolant level stay at cold full mark.start engie let idle few minutes, watch coolant level in radiator if coolant start dropping add more coolant, when coolant level stop dropping put radiator cap back on let engine idle until both top radaitor hose and bottom coolant hose get warm turn off engine wait until it get cool then take a large rag slightly open radiator just a litle at a time to keep from getting scaled.once radiator remove add more coolant if low,put radiator cap back on start the engine let it idle watch the temp gauge if temperature gauge going hot zone stop engine wait until cool then add more coolant,keep doing this until engine stop overheating going into hot zone and coolant level stop dropping,make the coolant overflow jug coolant level stay at full cold mark, dont let jug run empty if so air will get in the coolant system causing engine to overheat.

I have a 1994 Isuzu Rodeo. Two weeks after changing the water pump the temp gauge would show an overheating although the engine never really seemed to be overheating. It needle moves toward the red at...

this sounds like you need to put more coolent in the car if the needles moving back and forth on turns maby its low on fluid. after changing the water pump you could have a air bubble in the system that has worked its way out and now needs more fluid. i hope this helps

When i put water in the radiator it runs out the bottom of the engine and i don't know where its coming from

Water runs all over and can confuse you as to where it is actually coming from. Is the engine damaged? Did it recently overheat? It could be a busted hose, a cracked radiator, or a cracked engine block. You need to ask a buddy to pour the water in the radiator, while you look for the leak.

How to winterize pop up camper 2007 fleetwood pop up it . this site won't let go any where except this car site so if you know how to winterize a pop up camper let me know

Any place that sells campers can advise you. I would disconnect the water supply line underneath the camper and open all faucets. This will drain the lines. Pour some antifreeze especially designed for this purpose in the toilet and in all sinks. Don't forget to flush the toilet and pour a little in the tank after you turn the water off. This will prevent the traps from freezing.

Hole in freeze plug; water pours back out

Hi, the freeze plug is removed from the outside of the engine, so if it already has a hole in it, put a screw driver in the hole and prize it out, then the new one simply taps back in. As for the size, once you have removed the knackered one, just simply match it up

Water/Coolant pours out of engine as soon as I put it in.

It has popped the freeze plugs out and you won't know the extent of the damage it has made till you replace the freeze plugs. You never i mean never pour water into a vehicle around time for freezing weather
