My estimate is that it's time to change the water pump because when they start leaking a little, it will turn into leaking a lot pretty soon. That's what i would do if it were mine. Rick

98 grand cherokee little heat.heater hoses hot top rad warm bottom is cold collant barely luke warm


While it doesn't seem likely, if you've changed, or had the thermostat changed.... I'd say you got a faulty thermostat. I am curious as to what your temperature gauge says the temperature of the engine and coolant is.. If your gauge is showing hot, I can think of two more possibilities... the water pump isn't pumping right... and, if the water pump isn't working right, the problem can be a cracked head or block, which can cause an airlock in the coolant system. Check the coolant or radiator cap.

Are you sure that it is coolant. Puddles form under vehicles where the AC drain is under the car. Check that the puddle is actually coolant and not water from the ac evaporator core.

Coolant leak


Hose ? The drain valve on the lower radiator ? The water pump has what's called a weep hole built into it. When the water pump fails water weeps out of that little hole to let you know it's bad. I think the ion probably has the water pump onth the front of the engine under the plastic cover ? ( not sure on that ) if it is the water will leak from behind that plastic cover making it look like its coming from the area where the oil pan and that plastic meet. It could get blown around by the cooling fan making it look a lot worse that it is. Check the lower hose and all the other coolant hoses for cracks or leaks as well as the entire radiator area ( sides, top, bottom ) check your rad cap when its cool and be sure the rubber seal on the inside of the cap is good and not cracked or dry rotted. If it is then when the water gets hot and pressure builds in the rad it will leak. When its cold it may not.

The heater isnt working.. theres no water going through the heater to bring hot air through i only get cold and freezing cold, pulled the hoses off to clear any blockages form the pipes and there's...


hi make sure there is def enough water in the cooling system as a leaking hose or split radiator hose can leak water out so it cant pump around. Second make sure your thermostat is working, and last it all else fails check your water pump isnt getting worn

Heater will not blow hot air while truck is idle. When truck is moving hot air blows. There is some clear redish leakage underneth the truck. How can I fix this problem?


You are low on coolant. Find the leak, the red is most likely the coolant.
Coolant comes in 2 colors red and green.
Your leak is probably either a hole in a hose or a faulty water pump. The water pump has a small hole, usually on the bottom, when the seal goes bad, it will leak there. The only fix is a new water pump.

If it is a hose, just replace it. Make sure when you fill it that you fill the radiator and the overflow, just filling the overflow could cause it to over heat.
Also, depending on your climate, you need to mix your anti-freeze with 30-50% water. If you live in a very cold climate, you want to go with 30%water-70%anti-freeze.
Make sure that you use the right anti-freeze. red with red, green with green. Some green ones are now compatible with the red, if you change the color, make sure it is compatible.

Leaking coolant from around water pump just put in new radiator on monday and no leaks from it or hoses, think is weap hole in bottom of water pump.


If it's the weap hole the pump is going bad. That hole is designed to leak as a "warning" that the pump is going to fail.

When you start the engine look at the water pump and see if engine coolant is pouring out the weeping hole.If so you need a new water pump.Use a light source to see this

1995 Ford Ranger Splash Model had water pump


you already have two solutions where you posted this before...as an afterthought to my original solution, I also suggest checking pump bolts to make sure they are all tight (don't go overboard with this and snap any, just make sure that they are not easily turned.)
