94 toyota camry xle v6 overheating noticed leak in overflow res.

I think the leakage out of the reservoir is being caused by the overheating, not the other way round.

This can be caused by several things:

- failed thermostat (not opening)
- failed temperature sensor (not turning on the fans)
- blown fuse or failed relays in fan supply (if electric)
- soft hose from radiator to water pump "sucking in" and preventing flow
- blown head gasket allowing combustion gas into the water jacket (less likely)

Dripping water? underneath engine from small black rubber tube can anyone help

if the tube is dripping only when you've run the AC then its just condensation being dripped out of the unit and is normal, the location of this would be someplace near the firewall, it shouldn't be anything but clear water, if you detect antifreeze or rusty looking water, then its probably the radiator o ver flow tube, that would be located to the side of the radiator

I found some oil linkages around the fuel pump is that from the pump its self or gasket

Usually observing the dripped fluid on the ground as first encounter to acquire if is gasoline leak or oil leakage. A gasoline leakage should have been caused due to overpump at the gas station. Second, a leak from the engine if is antifreeze overflow because of over filling the hydrant with water causes overflow when AC is turned on for the first time. Third, the engine oil would dispense when too much was put in container. The reason is as vehicle precaustion, else the car would not start due to too much oil lubricant. Perform a vehicles fliud levels inpsection to acquire if any require refill due to the leakage. Alternatively, if any requires reducing for example, a mechanic would determine how to dispense the old fliuds in replacement of new oils. The vehicle should perform better. Usually changing fliuds causes efffecient engine performance,least heating, AC cooling capacity, and least polutant generation like air or gasoline leakages.

I have a 2008 Elantra, and water is dripping on the passenge side floor. I suspect that the AC drain tubing is blocked. Also a swooshing noise can be heard when making a sharp left hand turn. How can I...

They can be hard to find. Do you remember where the water dripped on your driveway after parking. That's where the water came from. It will be in the area of the firewall since that's where the evaporator is located. It may drip on the frame and run down from there so you'll have to get under there when the engine is not hot and use a flashlight to look everywhere. If you're lucky a little water will still drip helping you find it. Blowing through the drain hose is the best way to clear it. Compressed air is even better.

Overheating,leakage in overflow tank and under car

I had this problem with my 6.0L diesel. It turned out to be the head gasket. Compression psi was getting into the water jacket in the cylinder head and forcing all the water out through the overflow bottle. Check the psi of the overflow water reservoir, especially under load (acceleration, etc).
