    Defiantly not a crack... Thinking maybe water pump or water pump gasket

  • randytrav296 Apr 24, 2013

    Did They do A Pressure Check?

  • randytrav296 Apr 24, 2013

    With a Pressure Check You Will See A Leak ie Gasket water pump

  • randytrav296 Apr 24, 2013

    The picture Shown Is That Before Or After Inspection?

  • Kara Stokes Apr 24, 2013

    We have done a pressure check yes... The leak is near the pipe that goes into the back of the water pump but we replaced the orings and its still leaking. Unfortunately we cannot pressure test once the area is able to view as the plenum and intake have to come off to do it... IE: won't hold pressure anymore.

SOURCE: 1998 mustang gt coolant leak

I just had the same problem. Ford design the intake manifold with plastic water crossover which cracks. The coolant will leak onto the top of the block and and then down the back of the engine. This intake design is a known defect and was ocvered under by Ford for 7 years past the date of mfg. The crack either is in the crossover or the thermostat housing. I happed on this when I found the same leak and traced it back to the thermostat housing. I changed the thermostat, but it leaked worse. You can pickup a aftermarket for $200 and it's about 4-6 hr job to replace.

If it's a 2.2 ohv it's a head gasket. If it's a a 2.3 or 2.4 quad-4 ohc it's a water pump.

SOURCE: transmission line leak

Buy the kits from the dealer, lube them with oil and push into the tranny end. Make sure the old orings are not in the tranny. The kit has the orings on the installer already. Each line has oring-spacer-oring.

SOURCE: 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking coolant and power steering fluid

Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.

The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.

SOURCE: replace transmission due to coolant leaking into transmission

Get second opinion if you don't trust them 100%. It can occur, through rad which cools both, but for future I would ask about bypassing rad & adding an external cooler large enough to cool transmission properly, then no more problems with mixing again later.
Yes both should be flushed, transmission filter changed & re-filled if this has actually been confirmed. Luckily/hopefully no transmission damage has occurred, and was caught in time.

Loosing coolant not a lot and motor does not overheat is it the water pump

Water pumps usually leak coolant at their bottom "weep hole" when they go bad. Any coolant drips from the front of your engine? That would almost surely be the water pump. If you can't tell where any leaks are, have a pressure test done- that should show where the coolant is leaking or being lost.

Power steering fluid leaking

It could be something as simple as replacing the cap. I had the gaskests go out and had to replace the whole power steering unit itself. The first step is to figure out where the leak is coming from. Check the hoses, pump and power steering unit. and that will tell you what needs replaced or tightened.

How to tell if head gasket nead's to be replaced

There could be a lot of air bubbles in the coolant. The oil can turn a chocolate milk color ( could also happen with a bad lower intake gasket on the V-6). You could see white smoke coming out of the exhaust. The engine could develop a misfire do to lack of compression or coolant contamination. There may be an external oil or coolant leak. There are a couple of test to check to see if there are hydrocarbons in the cooling system. One is to use a four gas analyzer to sniff the coolant. The other is the bulb style with the blue liquid. Seem from the radiator is pumped through a fluid and if the fluid changes from blue to green there are hydrocarbons (exhaust) in the cooling system. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Radiator fluid disappers with out a leak

Half a gallon a week? Bad for the car, bad for the pocketbook.
Have a shop do a pressure test of your coolant system to check for leaks. You might also want a block test where they check for exhaust gases getting into the coolant system-maybe your coolant is getting into a cylinder and burning off. How does the car run? any white smoke out the exhaust? Or signs of overheating?
That's kind of a worst-case scenario (head gasket problem, or cylinder head problem), but that's an awful lot of coolant loss, and it's got to be going somewhere.
Good luck.

I have a break leak and coolant leak. I know this because both fluid holders I've had to fill; now it's hard to shift. How do I fix these?

you will have to check for were the brake and coolant is leaking from by looking for the leaks.with the brakes it could be the lines a wheel cylinder a flex hose even the master cylinder itself.once you have found the leak replace the affected part and bleed the system.with the coolant leak look as well and you might have to fill the system and pressure test the cooling system to find the leak then repair as needed.the shifting check the transmission fluid level and condition it should be a redish colour and not dark brown or black and not a burnt smell to it.if it does then you may have a transmission problem that will have to have a shop repair.if its just low and slightly dicoloured changing the fluid and filter may take care of it.

I have a leak that is coming out of the bottom of the engine under the crank shaft pulley....the engine is sideway mounted. I thought it had to be oil since I see it coming out from underneath the crank...

Please do try this steps:

  • Please do check the hose is connected properly and its not loose.
  • Also make sure that there is no leak and if the hose are old replace it with the new one.
Please check it first to avoid a lot cost of money. If you have additional questions feel free to reply to this solution. Have a nice day.
