Time for Intake Gaskets and possibly head gaskets, very common problem with these, the intake gaskets go bad and the coolant actually burns in the cylinder and of course the cylinder pumps air into the coolant system because of intake gaskets being bad. :-(

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.

Leaking coolant but no crack in reservoir or radiator hoses


If it's leaking from center front of engine compartment it's likely to be waterpump. Waterpumps have a small hole called weep hole for early warning when waterpump seal fails leaks coolant into bearing.

No heat


Check the coolant level in the rad and reservoir. If its low most likely a leaking intake gasket. top it up and recheck. If leaks when running the waterpump is most likely leaking. They also have issues with blown headgaskets loosing coolant, (but generally runs very hot).

My Chevy Malibu 1997 has a major problem with leaking in the coolant system. The coolant light comes on and stays on. We put prestone in the recovery system until its filled. The coolant light continue...


I'm guessing that the mechanic fixed a coolant leak around the gasket on the upper air plenum. The gasket leak was probably caused by Dexcool antifreeze deteriorating the gasket material. If that is the case, then the lower intake gasket is probably leaking too. If the mechanic refilled the cooling sysytem with DExcool antifreeze, then it probably destroyed the sealant he used to make the initial repair. I would have the car towed back to the mechanic to avoid any further damage from overheating. Have the mechanic remove the lower intake and check the gasket for leaks. DO NOT refill the cooling system with Dexcool. Use a compatible antifreeze that will work with aluminum engine parts.

Low coolant level light comes and goes off, but never over heats.temperature gauges has gone up halfway, but never in red area.what could be the problem


you never want the temperature guage at the red, at this time usually something major becomes damaged. Check your coolant level, if low inspect hoses, radiator, waterpump for leaks.

take a look at the waterpump, these cars have problems with waterpump leaking, take caution, the waterpump is driven by the timing belt,if that belt pops or jumps due to coolant leaking on it and causing it to fail,then you will have a costly repair,i belive its about $4,000 to fix, it will cause cylinder head valves to bent, have this coolant leak check asap.

This is usually the lower intake manifold gasket. The problem you are describing is due to a large air gap/bubble in your cooling line. This usually happens when the manifold gasket begins to fail.

You can add coolant, and bleed the coolant system (make sure to get out all the air to eliminate the no heat/overheat problem), but unless the lower intake manifold is fixed, it will probably contunue to leak (it can be a very very hard to detect leak). There are UV dyes u can add to the aNTIFREEZE TO CHECK FOR LEAKS THAT AREN'T OBVIOUS. But the worst case for this is that coolant gets in to the oil, and can ruin your engine. Check your dipstick for milky, creamy oil, a sign that there is coolant in the oil. Get it fixed immediately if this is the case, or you will ruin the engine.

There's info online about doing it yourself, but it's a bit invlved if you are not a mechanic. Expect to pay from 800 to 1200 to get it fixed at dealer or mechanic.
