Question about 1998 Chrysler Cirrus

Leaking radiator fluid

My 98 Cirrus is leaking radiator fluid from underneath the engine on the passenger side...I can't tell exactly where it's leaking from, but it's leaking at a very rapid pace. Any ideas on what the problem might be or where the fluid might be leaking from?

My trans fluid poured out


Determine where the fluid is coming from. Start with checking the transmission lines going to the front of the vehicle. There should be 2 that connect to a transmission cooler or to the radiator, typically on the passenger side. If one of these started leaking it may have sprayed transmission fluid onto your engine, causing the smoke.

How can i tell if my waterpump is bad? shut the car off and came out later to anti freeze in the driveway


If it's leaking that bad, open the hood take off radiator cap and fill with water (without making a mess and spilling a bunch. Then simply watch for where the leak is at, if it's leaking from a hose, the radiator, or from around the area where the belt is located on the passenger side of the engine compartment. If it's leaking from the passenger side around the belt area your water pump is the most common cause. They are made so when the bearing wears out around the shaft the pulley bolts, it has what are called weep holes and the water just runs out to tell you to replace the water pump.

its hard to diagnose this with out looking at the motor and finding the leak... sounds like you have some power steering fluid leaking onto your motor. check the power steering lines for leaks. fix the leak..and clean the motor.. if you cannot find a leak.. try power washing the motor... do this by turning on the car and degreasing the motor where you see oil stay away from the spark plugs and distributor and battery terminals while washing the motor.. Good luck..

2000 grand prix leaks water underneath the radiator. It looks like a round circle with black rubber around it. It has two of these look like plugs, but only leaks on the passenger side. What do you call...


Those are the rubber insulators that insulate the radiator from the metal part of the lower radiator support. They have nothing to do with the radiator leaking fluid. The fluis is likely coming from the tank seam on the side of the radiator and running down to that part. There is nothing you can service on the radiator. If its leaking the whole radiator will need to be replaced.

My 98 chrysler cirrus is lesking water and im told


First open the hood of your car and check where the leak is coming. Thermostat gasket is one source but
it could also come the radiator, radiator hose, or the
water pump. Check all these items, and you can do
the repairs by replacing the defective parts. Except for
water pump that really needs a mechanic to replace the
bearings and the mechanical shaft seal.

My lincoln started leaking radiator fluid once i turned on my heater,now it want stop unless car is off..


Where does it leak? If inside the car on the passenger side floorboard, then your heater core is leaking. If it is leaking under the engine on the passenger side of the car, you might just have a heater hose that goes from the radiator to the heater core that is leaking.

Good luck
