Water leak mx5 1993 - HELP NEEDED !!!

I have a 1993 Mazda Eunos Roadster, I have recently found a water leak on it. I am definately no mechanic and can only describe the leak coming from the following place....... on the right hand side of the thermostat housing there is a pipe approx 10mm dia and this seems to connect to the engine block via a fixing to the engine. I have taken the pipe off from both ends and this is ok, but the leak is on the bend of the fixing that is attatched to the engine block. It seems as this has corroded, and I wondered if anyone could tell me if I can obtain this fixing and if so how easy it is to fix ???
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards Andy.

That's the bypass hose connector. It should be bolted to the motor. If so u can obtain the connector & gasket (if it has one) from the dealer. Before u remove it, remove the rad cap to release any pressure from the system & u will lose less coolant. Don't forget to refill the coolant upon repair. Good luck

I'm assuming no-one deliberately added petrol to the cooling water. You'll probably find there's a heap of oil in there too. It sounds like you've got a cracked head or a dead head gasket. Pull the head off and check. You could also do a leak-down test or a compression test to try and tell where the problem is.

A note on the side - the car probably overheated BEFORE the oil/petrol leaked into the coolant. If you continued to try to run the car, the overheating would have got worse and worse - resulting in a crack or the gasket being destroyed.

If you're not mechanically minded, you've probably got a rather large problem on your hands and need to get someone else to look at it.

1991 mazda mx5 eunos roadster radiator clogged with oil


Your radiator is leaking internally, leaking transmission fluid from the transmission fluid cooler into the radiator where the coolant is. You can't fix it, just get the radiator replaced and then flush the coolant.

Mazda eunos leaking cold water, engine running hot and smells like burning rubber, temp gage is not showing a problem. Could it be the themosat?


Unless your gauge is faulty you engine probably is not overheated. Any vehicle engine at normal operating temperature is hot. I'm guessing but I bet your normal operating temperature is about 185 degrees. You say it is "leaking cold water". Were you using the air conditioner when this took place? If so that is normal condensation. As for the burning smell I would look at the exaust area to see if a piece of trash has caused it.
