Could be anything - a pump, hose, radiator, frost plug, failed gasket, etc. Inspection... or pressurize the system to make it leak will reveil the problem

Had sencer replaced in anti freeze resavoir now I have no heat Any tips?


If when the sensor was changed , the system lost a lot of anti-freeze, you may have an air pocket. Also you may have a bad thermostat. Was your no heat problem reason for changing sensor? Either way change thermostat, and bleed the system. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

93lebaron overheated blowed a rubber plug from somewhere . What is it?


this plug was installed in place of a frost/freeze plug. you will have to find where on the engine it came from and install a proper plug then refill the cooling system with the proper ratio of water and anti-freeze.

I have a 1996 saturn 1.9 litre. Ohc. I replased water pump and still getting very warm. I found a pin hole in the underside of the radiator cap. Its on the bottom on the part above the water hole. Could...


Pressure test the radiator for leaks if it holds pressure start the engine. And check if pressure rises and keeps rising ,if it does it points to blown gasket or cracked head. A faulty thermostat can make it over heat so check it out . I would not mix the anti freeze as a lot of them don't mix well. put the anti freeze in all year as it stops corrosion of the cooling system.

My Chrysler Concorde 2000 3.2? Overheated and melted a hole in the water resivour tank,so we replaced that, it still got hot fast, so we replaced thermostat, then it started making a loud noise it sounds...


The whistling noise is steam. The problem is you never attacked the source of the problem. What you need to do now is drain your radiator completely at opening T-spicket at the bottom of the radiator. While you drain with engine off, run your water hose on top, to flush out the radiator. Then run to the Auto store and buy "radiator flush" -- follow directions. After flushing out the radiator flush, close the T-spicket, and fill with NEW anti-freeze. By enough to fill to the very top. Mix the anti-freeze with water per instructions to your environmental weather.
Buy a new radiator cap which could have caused the problem in the first place by not allowing the correct pressure to blow off. Being a 2000 car is a little early for radiator problems, but an incorrect anti-freeze solution causes radiators to fail prematurely.. Better to have more than less because anti-freeze keeps the radiator from corroding.
Your radiator never cooled the water sufficiently, and boiled much of the water out, hence it got so hot that it would melt the water tank. The Thermostat could well have been the cause because it got corroded from the inept ant-freeze mixture. Did you find rust on the Thermostat ? If so it was the case. If not the radiator has lost cooling either by low water or the cores have become plugged up, in that case you will need a new radiator. See if the flush loosens the rust within the cores before buying an expensive radiator. Check the water hoses if leaking cooling. Run the car allow the engine to become hot before accepting that your water hoses are fine. Because heat expand everything, and may not leak until after the expansion.

Not circulating


Hey Tyler,

Your posting does not indicate if you have a good clean mixture of antifreeze coolant in your heat & cool exchanger ( ie. radiator ), this valuable component of the vehicle coolant & heating system alway's need's a good supply of 50% water to 50% antifreeze which is under pressure and could hurt you or anyone standing too close to your vehice in question.

Purchase the anti-freeze in either full mixture (100%) or 50% water 50% anti-freeze just about anywhere out there with a vehicle repair isle.
Personally speaking I mix 50% water 50% anti-freeze since this is much cheaper than buying the already 50% water to 50% anti-freeze simply due to economic reasons.
After filling this radiator container, remember to alway's follow your vehicle manufacture's safety guidelines, remember there are many moving parts in the engine compartment that could hurt you or people standing around your vehicle while the engine is running.

Hope this helps!

Heat not working properly seen anti-freeze leaking from what looks like water pump on the under carriage of vehicle


My best guess would be that you have a bad water pump. When thhey go bad, they will often leak antifreeze from weep holes in the housing. Since your car's heater is nothing more than a small radiator that relies on hot coolant being circulated through it, a bad water pump would explain your lack of heat. Conversely, it may just be a leak. If your system has lost enough coolant, your heating system will suffer the same.

it prob isnt the heater core usually when that goes u blow antifreeze steam into cab from heater vents. prob water pump or pin hole in radiator line if from the front of the engine or bad gaskets or bad freeze plugs if from the rear also check ur thermostat to make sure it working prop because u could simply be blowing out ur over flow line cause **** is plugged an over heating

We are changing the water pump need to refill the system


If you are asking if you will need to drain the fluid then yes you will have to drain at least half of the anti freeze before removing the water pump. I would recomend buying an extra gallon before you start because if you are needing a new water pump the chances are that you have lost some fluid already. but you can reuse the fluid that you drain just make shure that you use a clean container to catch the fluid. Another note is when buying you anti freeze check what color anti freeze you have. You never want to mix green with orange.

I have a 2004 Monte Carlo SS, while driving I lost all water and it over heated. turns out the frost plug at the front of the motor (block heater one) had blown out. I never saw any leaks on the ground...


your main concern right now is to replace the frost plug and while you are at it flush the engine then fill with proper anti freeze mix, you should be good to go
