SOURCE: radiator leak

if you want to make sure you can put some soap bubles on the hose and see where the leak has actually taken place as a first step in diagnostic.

just pour the soap on the top and you can see (not inside the radiator), once it blows then there is your leakage.

either the radiator itself is the prob or the hose

bad headgasket = water in oil (milky) or oil in water (foamy I think).
but yea, ah... I had a Ford once. My experience is that once something like this starts the only thing you can do to repair it is to buy a japanese car. lol

hi jasso, I would recommend checking the water pump if you see no flow in the radiator. Make sure when you fill up the cooling system, that you fill it cold, and that the vent screw in the radiator is loose. fill system until fluid comes out the vent screw. tighten the screw, start the car and have someone run at 1500rpm and check for flow.also, make sure that you have your temp setting full hot and blower on middle speed so that you don't trap air in the heater core.

SOURCE: coolant does not seem to be circulating in

Remove the thermostat and run the car. Without the thermostat you should see FULL flow thru the radiator. You can pull the top radiator hose WHERE IT ATTACHES TO THE RADIATOR and start the engine with a garden hose stuck in the filler opening. Don't turn the hose on so hard that it blows water out the radiator hose. You want to water pump to shoot water out the disconnected hose, not the garden hose. A hose COULD be blocked, but it would have to be a pretty big blockage to cut off all flow. Not likely in my opinion. You could take them off and look in them and the heater hoses too. You can blow compressed air thru the heater core to see if it is blocked. As for it being the water pump...they rarely break so bad they won't pump water. Usually the seal goes bad and they leak water out the shaft. Look around, I kinda think you have a bad thermostat. Stuck closed. Drop it in boiling water and see if it opens. You didn't say what engine is in the Camaro, but most of them have a small bypass hose on the top of the water pump running to the intake manifold. Pull it off and see if water sprays out when the engine is running.

make sure thermostant is good. most important is to make sure you didnt blow a gasket when it overheated, if you have a 3.8 engine those are famous for blowing headgasket. anyway have a block test done first, its a liquid they use to see if exhaust gases are entering the cooling system, good luck ,hope this helps.

Radiator leaking anti freeze

Take it to a radiator shop. They can tell you if it can be fixed, or if you need a new radiator. If they can stop the leak, they will clean, flush and test it before giving it back to you.
A new radiator for a 95 Jeep costs $120, to give you a general idea of new radiator cost. Your import might be a little more, or a lot more.. A radiator shop's cost to you-probably around $100. Compare prices and decide.

1996 Honda Odyssey overheating and has engine warning light.

Did you change out the thermostat? I would also change out top and bottom radiator hoses if they feel soft. They should have firm sides.

Your getting some bad radiators. If the replacement was brand new, then I would be looking for any points of vibration that could cause something to rub on the radiator, also check your water pump flow, it should be good and strong to eliminate hot spots

If you are sure the water isn't leaking somewhere - run the car stationary and look for spots on the floor - then is lost thru evaporation. Look at the caps of the radiator and the state of the expansion bowl.

The overflow tank ( sorta off white see through bottle with green stuff in it) has a hose attached to the bottom of it that should feed itself into the radiator ( usually right where the radiator cap is ). Make sure its connected .

Coolant leak at the front of the engine

The water pump is located along the left side of the engine underneath the plastic covers. You coolant leak is most likely a radiator hose.
