Does this car have the coolant 90degree elbows in the tension-er pully? If it does this would be where I start. Cheap fix at any parts store for $4. Mine split causing slow coolant leak, then when replaced worked great for about 6 months then split again. Slow leak for about a month then blew completely out. Parts store tells me they sell a lot of them for GM vehicles.

Why does my 2000 pontiac grand am leak coolant


coolant leaking could come from different areas, i would 1st start checking for leaks around the thermostat area, this is normally where the top radiator hose connects too, then i would look at the water pump area to see if any coolant is visable on the outside of it, also check your heater hoses for leaks too, some cars have even had antifreeze leaks coming from the freeze plugs, which are installed into the engines block, they are normally on the sides of the engines. don't forget to check out the radiator, a good way to find antifreze leaks is after you drive the car for a while, and then park it, and then put a large piece of cardboard under your car, make it large enough to go from the radiator to at least the windshield area, if it leaks then, you will be able to see what area the antifreeze has leaked.

I have a 2000 grand am I replaced the head baskets car runs great but it still runs hot heater want work and it leaks water from tail pipe help


If you're getting water out of the tail pipe, you could have a head gasket that is leaking coolant into an exhaust port. When you replaced the head gaskets, did you properly clean the gasket mating surfaces of both the heads and the engine block? Did you check the heads for warpage? Did you check the block deck surface for any unevenness? Any of these areas could prevent a new gasket from properly sealing. Are you having to add coolant? Did you replace the thermostat? Did you make sure that the thermostat was properly positioned in the housing? It should go in with the coil spring side to the engine. Did you flush the cooling system and install fresh antifreeze?

Leaking coolant somewhere below after car is warm and shut off can not find,recently replaced water pump, and it is not the radiator


Does this vehicle have a 3.1 or 3.4L motor. If so they commonly have intake manifold gaskets failures. This leads to coolant leaking, usually at the corners of the intake manifold and in some instances leaking into the oil. Look for signs of coolant leaking at the corners of the intake manifold and check the engine oil for coolant.

check your water pump for leaks. If its coming for the pump housing it will need to be replaced. Check the gasket area where the pump bolts to the block.. If water is not from the pump or around it check your hoses and clamps. check thermostat housing.

O2 sensor location 1997 pontiac grand am 2.4 4 cyl auto trans


BANK 1 SENSOR 1 IS THE ONE IN THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD. BANK 2 SENSOR 2 IS BELOW THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER.

P0171 SHOULD GO AWAY WITH A GOOD O2 SENSOR BUT DO CHECK FOR VACUUM LEAKS TO BE SURE. 3.1/3.4L ENGINES HAVE A BAD DESIGN INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET, THE LEAK OIL, COOLANT, AND AIR.

Coolant leaked out leftside of motor.


Check your oil if it's cloudy and watery you've got a blown head gasket, a very expensive repair.

Radio fuse keeps blowing - check tire pressure and low coolant lights come on - wipers will not go down when turned off


look for any leaks at the firewall and underneath the carpeting in your car. Mine did this a while ago and stopped when it was dry out. The check tire pressure is resettable by a little button under the right side of your dash next to - but under the instrument panel. Low coolant could be a leaking head gasket or intake manifold gasket(common), or a clogged radiator try having it flushed and look for any excessive coolant consumption or fluctuating coolant temps.
