    the leak is in the back of the van not the front. Fan is working fine and water pump seems to be working fine also. no leaks around motor but antifreeze is pouring out the back when the van is moving

    not sure what it is pouring out of. looks like just steel piping in the back of the mini van. also the very back of the van floor is wet with antifreeze

    I had the same problem. although my carpet wasn't wet. It was a leak in the lines going to the rear heater.

    Pouring out of the back o f what?

  • Tommy Walker May 11, 2010

    I need more information to help you. It could be a number of things. Is the fan running while the car is overheating? Any smoke coming from the exhaust?

How do i get antifreeze back in a radiator after it over heats


You have a reservoir that has fluid level markings for hot and cold for the coolant fill it to the full mark for cold after the engine is cooled down. If this is the reservoir that burst and it leaks then replace it. If the engine just overheated and boiled the antifreeze out then find out why and fix that issue.

2002 dodge caravan sport overheated. It has a new radiator and hoses; we changed the thermostat and replaced the relay and pigtail for the cooling fans after it overheated but we still have the overheating...


Double check the thermostat and make sure the water pump is doing its job. To check the thermostat, simply take it out and reassemble the housing with out the unit. Run the engine and hopefully it will get warm to hot. If not check the pump.

engine running too hot.check coolant level, should be 50/50 antifreeze and water.replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.check antifreeze level in the radiator,coolant level should be just below radiator cap, add coolant to overflow jug,should alway be at the full cold mark.empty coolant overflow jug will allow air be drawed in the coolant system causing overheating.if overheating happens when coming to a long stop.could have faulty engine coolant temperature sensor or bad coolant fan fuse or relay.

Over heating


Try checking your antifreeze levels. If you antifreeze tank is low try filling it to the "Fill" or "Full" level. If your antifreeze tank is empty, remove your radiator cap, (make sure the engine has cooled off. If you try to open it while it's hot, you could get sprayed with hot antifreeze) and fill the radiator slowly. Then refill your antifreeze tank. Remember to always mix the antifreeze with water (50/50 mix) for full protection.

99 Firebird still overheating after repairs and antifreeze


overheating is most likely a bad thermostat, but the coolant loss is a second big concern. Does the exhaust look like steam? You could have a cracked block and the coolant is leaking into the engine. Also check the oil for contamination.

Water overheating on a year 2000 seat toledo 1.9tdi se, is the water pump easy to replace??


Water pumps are not normally what causes overheating, in fact that would be my last item to change. The only way that a water pump fill cause overheating is if the impeller has come off the shaft or completely worn down. I would first start with the thermostat. If this dosn't fix it, then I would be looking at the condition of the radiator I.E. is it plugged, are the fins up front full of bugs and debris ect. Then I would also check the cooling fan operation, does it come on when engine is hot? also does it come on with the A.C. operation-it should. Then last of all the water pump- and no its not easy on this one, due to lack of clearance.
