SOURCE: leaking water from front passenger side, under dashboard

It is either condensation water from the A/C unit that should go out a drain tube to the outside (only if A/C or Defrost is on) or a leaky heater core. If it is a heater core you can usually smell a coolant smell and the water will be warm and your windows will fog up inside. Heater core is more common. Joe ASE Master Tech

SOURCE: transmission leaks, clunks into gear

Well your clunking noise is most likely the u-joints the leaking pan is the tranny pan what you would have to do is get a tranny kit and change the pan gasket tranny filter and fluid or take to a shop and have a tranny service done.

SOURCE: My 1999 chevy tahoe is leaking antifreeze. I

it could but- check passenger side front where heater core line go into manifold right behind alternator the hose line is connected by a press clip into an alloy fitting this fitting gets eaten away by anti freeze and hose angle pulls back on fitting the part is $18 at dealer and is screwed into manifold use caution if ur r going to replace at very edge of aluminum manifold---and check ur water pump bolts the 2 longer ones should have a lock sealant on them they bolt in thru a water jacket

SOURCE: is transmission cooler located inside of radiator

I would not worry about antifreeze in the transmission. The pressure in the tranny cooler will not let any coolant get in. If it was leaking you would have tranny fluid in the radiator. You may have some freeze plugs that have pushed out or a cracked block or some coolant passage above the transmission. Get it pressure checked

I have a 2004 model Toyota voxy and the temperature light sometimes come on and it consumes coolant.Put in a new radiator with fan changed the thermostat and sensor but still have same problem.


if it consumes fluid only two ways a leak or burning it ---look for leaks -dried /damaged hoses- reservoir -radiator cap-water pump-heater core -- have a pressure test done of system ----burning coolant would mean problem with --possible head gasket--intake gasket -damaged head

What location of power streeing pump mazda mpv 2000


The most common source it the high pressure hose that feeds the rack-n-pinion from the pump, or the pump itself. If you follow the large hose from the reservoir it will lead you to the pump. The small metal line leaving the reservoir going to the rack will be the pressure hose. The rack itself is also a good source for a leak. You basically need to get the van up in the air and dry everything off the best you can and look for a source of your fluid loss.

Water pump


The most common source of a coolant leak on any engine is by far the water pumps front seal. If you get under the engine you should be able to see the white stains from the dried coolant leading towards the water pump, you can also touch under the front of the water pump and see if it is wet with coolant.

Rattling sound coming from serpentine belt area with slight leak


The Sweet Smell is Coolant
Most likely your going to have to replace the water pump. That will be for you to determine.
If your going to do it yourself,you'll be there a couple of days.
It maybe more than you want to do,if you need a manual,I would take it to a repair shop
