SOURCE: Car is leaking antifreeze from underneath of car

watch for leaks and follow them after you drive i would geuss checking your thermostate housing both parts, the hoses that go to the heater core by the throttle body and the hose that goes to the throttle body, im guessing this is the turbo, if it is a non turbo it would be a hoses the waterpump or the oring that goes into the waterpipe on the front of the block, just get in there and take a good luck and remember the rules of gravity =) good luck man and if you need any parts for it let me know we got alot of these parts cars out in our yard

SOURCE: Leaking antifreeze fluid from under the engine.

might be a freeze plug leaking, or heater hose. there are three freeze plugs on each side of engine and two in back of engine. most likely if any of them are leaking, it will be the one behind the starter on the far right rear of engine block. they have also been known to leak around the front and rear of intake, where intake, head, and block meet.

SOURCE: 1999 Dodge Stratus is leaking antifreeze

Hi brandononrolan,
If you can smell antifreeze from the inside of the car it is most likely the heater core.  You can probably feel under the passenger side floor mat and it will probably be wet with coolant..
Replacement is a fairly large job because the dash has to be disassenbled.  I would guess at between 300 and 500 dollars.
You should have a local mechanic take a look at it before you buy and get an estimate.
Let me know if this helps in your decision and please rate this solution.

SOURCE: 2000 Jetta is Leaking antifreeze and smoking

I think you mean you saw water vapor (some call it steam) not smoke.

You probably have a hose leaking (badly). If it's not a hose, your water pump shaft seal is probably kaput.

Can someone help me with a Mysterious antifreeze leak under the hood?

if its making the engine smoke its the pipe or the thermostat housing next to the exhaust manifold even a pin hole will make it come out and squirt on the exhaust, run engine to temp squeeze the pipes, you should see were its come out from then you can fix it.

Antifreeze leaking

why not find source>?/???? is this a stick or A/T?
a hot engine, has 12 psi AF coolant pressure.
and any leak is easy to find.
it will even squirt at that large pressure if bad.
i cant be more help due to you not stating which engine option.
8v or 16valves.
ill roll the dice, and pick 16v, and
the rear of head has main water, fitting that leaks. (housing)
the heater hoses leak
or the cars heater core leaks
and it finds a way out of heater box, to A/C condensate tube under car and leaks.
or the floor boards are rusty and AF leaks there, from same core leak.

are the passengers (USA LHD) toes green with AF?

I saw aqua blue color solution under the car

blue, ran over a smirf?

front, rear, left ,right , center of car. surely you know that.?
i guess there is blue antifreeze, now from green,pink,yellow, orange and none clear.
its not brake fluid, so that is cool.
is car A/T or M/T auto or stick shift
what year, what model, ????

ill guess coolant and is a bad sign.
easy to find though
get motor hot, open hood, and bingo, at 14psi hot, coolant
will leak or even squirt, find it , just look, for 10 mins.
it will tell you , every time.
unless leaking from cab heater then it leaks
from the A/C condensate drain, pipe under car, that
pipe this always leaks pure water....

Drypping water from a smal black tube i think is from the water pump on my 1996 jeep cherokee 2.5 diesel

not water but green coolant right, antifreeze right?
you dont live in Keywest, and run water ?
the reason i say that is only the A/C condensate tray tube leaks pure water...
only you can tell what is leaking. just watch it, take your time.
get engine hot.
open hood, the RAD is under 12-14psi pressure now. (our lil helper that)
now it leaks, so see from where
the object that leaks is bad, what else is there to say, nothing

Coolant Leak 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2WD 4.0L

the cooling system is a bit complex. but leaks are easy.
leaks tell you hey,IM busted fix me now.

don't burn up the engine with ignored leaks,
warping the heads is no fun or cheap... at all.
so what going on
well if you are running 50% antifreeze its good,
if running water bad,
i cant see your flood and judge that color. puddle.
the system is under 14psi pressure if cap is good.
top failure is the thermostat 7 year life is typ.

That pressure is your friend if you had looked
at the actual engine, hose and rad, with hood up
you could find the leak.
at any hose, RAD,engine block , manifolds.
Best is the get engine to 180f + normal temp
1: cold engine,
2: fill the rad(at cap off neck) full of 50% AF
cap back on. start in in PARK
3: get engine hot. 180f+ normal. means normal hot.
4: the system will go to 14psi pressure , normal.
4b: hose large feel hard, yup 14psi there.
5: now leaks happen when under pressure,(failed system)
6: we now look in all directions, of all parts seen below, top,bottom left right and under. yup , under
we then find the leak.
look for squirting,as that can make things wet that are NOT BAD. LOOK and you will find the leak
if totally confused
tow the car to a service shop, ASE rated, best.

It could be lots of things, when experienced them all one tends not to guess.
this is an inline 6, one of the more easy engine
to work on, 2.5L even more easy but is a cut down, I6
look at the head gasket seam for leaks 4 sides.
and all core plugs, in view. for leaks.

those are external leaks , internal a whole other long story.

How to put aitfreeze in my 2000 dodge neon

When you open your hood the first thing between you and the engine is the radiator. There is a tube about 2 inches wide the leads from the radiator back towards your engine. On top of the black tube there is a silver cap that says, "CAUTION DO NOT OPEN WHEN HOT" or something like that.

If the black tube is to hot to hold on to, don't open the radiator cap as it can squirt out and burn you.

If it is cool enough, push down the cap hard while turning left or counterclockwise. Once off, add antifreeze until it stops disappearing.

Good luck!

1999 Carivan has window wash pumps that pump but fluid does not squirt on windshield. Water is seen dripping under van. Blew through tube to see if squirters were plugged but they appear to have no...


simple way to tell is to buy a small tube and attach it to the motor of the washer which is on the water tank and push it. If it comes out then you will have no problem knowing.

Unfortunately, the tubes may be fine but the connectors that split the tubes are plastic that wears over time and if they loose enough pressure, the wipers will not work.

Happy Motoring.

Water leaks below dash on passenger side.

if it is pure water and not antifreeze then i would say the drain is blocked. check under your hood on the firewall around heat/ac for your drain tube

Coolant is leaking into the passenger side of car interior 1997 DeVille happens when AC is turned on,it is not overheating it is not leaking from anywhere visible under the hood

i bet it is your heater coil located under the dash of the car. when it gets cold if its not fixed it will fog up your windows.
