2002 Chevy suburban after driving for couple hours it losses power and I have to stop wait 20 minutes and then it goes again...what's the issue

The engine is overheating, check the anti-freeze level when cold, refill and repair the leaks. Check belts that drive the water pump.

Will a broken water pump cause anti freeze to mix with oil and drip

Yes, your water pump attaches to the front of the engine block. If a leak opens up between the two, coolant goes into the crankcase along with oil. That means water and oil are being circulated through the bearings and cylinders of your engine. Don't drive it in this condition.

My car is leaking anti-freeze daily and there is a noise like maybe a barring sound. The anti-freeze leaks when I turn the car off and then runs hot until I put more in it? Could this be the water pump?

Yes, it is the water pump, the bearing to the water pump have gone bad, and that's where more then likely where the water is leaking out of, be careful, if engine gets to hot , the cylinder heads will get damage, then you be looking at alots of $$$ to repair.Hope this was very helpful, good luck.

Leaking anti freeze in the right under the hood near right front tire

it could be the water pump if the front of the engine is on that side. or heater hoses. with the engine cold, fill the system full. use straight water so you won't waste anti freeze. run the car until it gets hot. the system will pressurize. inspect the suspected area. the leak should be apparent. if the leak appears to be running from the engine block, it's most likely the pump.

1999 gmc suburban has water loss

Good chance that it will be a bad heater core if your floor boards are getting wet, but has the inside of your windshield been fogging up. Most of the time when a heater core goes bad, the inside of the windshield fogs up. If the leak is not that bad, you can add 2 to three table spoon of common kitchen black pepper. The Black pepper will work it's way to the leak and plug it up till your can have it repaired properly and the black pepper will clean up easily when the cooling system get's flushed. Good luck and this should by you some time so you can work on it in the summer. Don't use any radiator stop leak, they just make a mess to your cooling systems water ways.

The car is leaking anti-freeze. The suggestions we received were, that it could be the water pump. Where is the water pump located, and can it be fix without taking it to a mechanic.

Could be water pump, bad hose, bad gasket. First thing is first, find out what the problem is. Go to auto part store, get some dye for radiator system. dump it in, run vechile, use uv goggles and a uv light to determin where it is leaking from. Once found, a step by step process can be described for you to replace needed parts.

2000 chevy suburban has a cooling system leak what kind of sstop leak do you recommend

I try not to use radiator stop leak to fix any leak, the stop leak will tend plug up the cooling journals and jackets through out the engine, radiator and heater core. If you are going to use any stop leak just to help you get to a repair shop, use just plain black kitchen pepper. The black pepper will plug up the hole where the leak is coming from and when it's time to repair the cooling system, the pepper will clean right out with just a simple coolant flush. Locate the leak and have it repaired, if it's the water pump leaking through the weep hole. Your going to have to have the water pump replaced, and if it's the heater core that is leaking. That's going to have to be repaired, and at worst, if the intake manifold gasket is leaking antifreeze in to the engine. That's bad and need to be repaired as soon as you can, the Antifreeze is corrosive to the engine's bearing and it's know to have the engine's bearing to go bad in 3000 miles of antifreeze mixed in with the engine oil. Good luck and hope it's just a small leak through a hose clamp or the radiator.

Anti-freeze leak

If it's leaking at the top of the engine down. Look at the top of the engine at the front and you'll see a bleeder valve on top a black housing. These housings like to come apart at the glued seams. If it's leaking at the lower part of the engine towards the front, it could be your water pump leaking. Check your oil and if you see the color of the oil looking like chocolate milk, your water pump needs replaced, the oil will need changing as well. Do a coolant system pressure test and see if your hoses somewhere are leaking. Also check for your surge tank leaking. This is the tank that you put coolant into.

Car leaking coolant

First of all ensure that your car is leaking coolant fluid, and what is dripping is not just water condensation from the air conditioner.
If you have a coolant liquid leak, it can be from one of the ducts leading to radiator , from water pump or radiator itself. Check liquid levels, and if you have a leak have the car inspected by a qualified mechanic.
A broken water pump, for example, can cause your motor to blow in few miles.
