SOURCE: water pump hose/pipe

The only fix I have found is to purchase the ford replacement part at a local dealership. Its rather expensive at $185. Dont know the part number off hand, but any experienced parts counter person should know of the part. Its common.

SOURCE: water pump bottom hose to radiator oem rubber hose

Always give make and model of course, but most important (so they give you the right part) give year according to the sticker on drivers door opening, this is the production date i.e. 10/98 and it assures you right part, ya see, ford could have changed that hose three times that year,....Explain the part the way you did to me, and they'll be able to show you a picture on computer screen, if not, you'll be able to compare to the one you have,.....good luck, cracklin joe

SOURCE: Coolant leak - 1981 Ford F-150 straight 6cyl., no AC

You know what i would do if i were you. I would get some BARS radiator leak stop. This stuff is unbelievable for the price. I bought an older grand am for a work beater, had a bad coolant leak and i didnt feel like pulling the water pump and jacket because it woulda cost me more for the jacket and gaskets then i bought the car for. Put a bottle of leak stop in there for 10 bucks and it stopped and hasn't leaked sense.

SOURCE: what are the three hoses

The metal tubes that come out of the water pump are not replaceable independent of the water pump. you have to have a new pump.

My 1999 dodge caravan is still overheating. I have already replaced the thermostat and the water pump, also there is no heat. please help me someone!


Hi there.
Well you can either have a problem with either radiator outer {dust/dirt in outer core of radiator or clogged up inside were water goes, or soft hoses,blowen head gasket plus a few others ,but first go to garage to were you blow up your tyres and use the air hose and blow out the radiator core where the air goes in, 2 drain out radiator water and then refill with water at 1 ltr at a time and then check your info car book and find how much water the radiator takes ,if it dosent take all the ltrs then the radiator is blocked inside.
if engine runs rough missing etc then get your Head gasket checked out.
When you say no heat is that with heat on gauge or no heat from heater, as it could be heater blockage same as radiator core. So let me know how you get on.

Radiator fan not working unless ect switch is unplugged, also lower rad hose cool to the touch


Hi
Do you have a bleed valve on or around radiator / radiator pipes.
if yes the undo the valve and leave the car running till it bleed.
once its bleed, you will have full circulation of the water and both pipes will heat up also the fan will come on.

If no bleed valve then undo the water bottle or metal cap.
start the car up and leave it running till the fan kicks in. it will only kick in when the system is bled and no more air in the system.
Thanks

Need to know where the thermostadt is at. Have leakage but can't find any hoses etc leaking.


If you have the V6 (2.5L) engine, be advised: it's a wearing task. Just getting to the radiator drain plug can be a problem without a 3/8 inch drive ratchet, a 3 inch extension, a universal joint. and a 19 mm socket. The drain plug is on the passenger side of the radiator on the engine side. The 19mm socket will fit over the drain plug to turn it open.
The coolant plumbing on this engine is the craziest I have ever seen. The thermostat is on the rear face of the engine (where the radiator hoses connect), but not on the upper hose where it connects to the upright pipe with the radiator cap on it, it is on the lower hose connection. Pull that hose off the housing, and remove the three bolts holding the thermostat housing to the engine. It will help if you first remove the big air inlet hose from the air filter housing to the throttle body. I wouldn't even bother with the thermostat till you have found the leak. Is any coolant leaking from the front of the engine, dripping off the bottom behind the crank pulley? That would be a water pump problem or SEAL, an o-ring on the back of the water pump. Now get on the driver's side and look around on the rear of engine nearest the firewall where engine and transaxle mate. Look down there for signs of coolant coming from rear of engine and running down onto the transaxle case. There is a metal pipe laying in the valley below the lower intake manifold, connecting the water pump at the front and the rear housing where the radiator hoses and heater hoses connect. This metal pipe uses an o-ring for a seal into the water pump, and the same size o-ring to connect to the rear housing. If one of those o-rings is leaking, you have a big problem getting to it.. I took the rear housing off once (never again!), Now I'm taking the water pump off to fix a leak. The water pump is run by the timing belt, so the front of engine needs to be stripped down, and the timing belt removed to take off the water pump. That metal pipe is held in place by a bracket with one bolt on the rear of engine; it may require taking the lower intake off (again) to get to both of those pesky o-rings. I hope you don't have the same problem, and if you have the 4 cylinder engine, the thermostat is a snap to replace, plus you don't have that crazy plumbing problem.

2.4 liter 4 cyl 1996 grand am were is thermostat located


Follow the lower hose from the radiator to the metal pipe that runs under the engine and connects to the back side of the engine to the water pump housing. Remove that metal pipe from the water pump housing and the t-stat will be right there.

Need to locate and replace thermostat for 97 pontiac grand am se with a 2.4L engine.


The thermostat is under the car on the backside of the engine. there will be a metal pipe attached to the lower radiator hose. Follow that pipe to the back of the car. It is bolted to the water pump housing. The thermostat is in between the water pump housing and the metal pipe.

Where is the thermostat in a 98 chevy malibu 2.4L? It does not appear to fit behind the housing where the top radiator hose connectts


No it not at that housing, Its under the car kinda. If you remove the heat sheild for the exhaust manifold you will be able to see the top of the housing. It connects to the bottom of the water pump housing then to a metal pipe that goes under the oil pan to the lower radiator hose. You will be able to remove the two 8mm headed bolts from the top, then unbolt the stud that holding the metal pipe under the oil pan and then you can get to the t-stat. Lots of work in tight spaces but it is possible to do with out pulling the exhaust manifold or the water pump housing!

1987 HONDA ACCORD LX WATER LEAK


Yes, there is a "bypass outlet" coolant hose that connects from the water pump inlet pipe (metal pipe that runs from back of water pump along engine block to lower radiator hose) to the intake manifold.

I am not sure about the "black box" - not enough detail.
