It sounds like there is a rubber gasket problem, i would take it out and seal it. autozone has a blue sealant that is made for the coolant system. take it out, make sure its dry, and smear it in the screw, make sure to get it in the threads. it takes an hour to set and 24hrs to fully cure

SOURCE: 2002 chryler sebring is leaking anti freeze

It depends on where the leak is coming from. If the water pump is leaking, it has a hole on the bottom of it. You will see a trail of dried anti freeze coming from the bottom of it, indicating a bad water pump. It's best to dry everything off, crank it up and let it come to operating temp and check for where the leak is coming from. It may just be an old hose or loose clamp.

SOURCE: Leaking coolant

Highly unlikely that is the case more likely it is the radiator leaking onto the fan. Also check the upper hose to make sure that it doesnt have a pin hole in it. Good luck and dont forget to rate.

I top off my 1998 Nissan Altime's engine coolant evreyday. Also, the radiator fan stays on for appromiately 2 minutes after I shut the engine off. Is something wrong with the cooling system or the...


The fan running is normal. you need to find where the coolant is leaking. If there are no visable leaks. then suspect the radiator/reservoir cap.

Antifrezz is leaking from the engine no hoses are broke whers is it coming from


If all your hose and hose clamps are good. There is a good chance that the water pump has to be replaced, once the water pump bearing is worn. The coolant will leak from the weep hole on the water pump when the engine is running and the only way to stop the leak is to replace the water pump.
Thank you for using fixya.
Depending on engine size a 3.1 liter v6 and a 2.2 **** 4cyl. are both located in the front of the engine.
Remove serpentine belt,remove 4 10mm from pulley (v6)(three 13mm for 4cyl.)remove pulley.v6 will have 6 8mm bolts,4cyl. will have 4 13mm bolts-remove clean surfaces install new pump.
About 40 mins.v6,60mins for 4cyl. Be sure to drain coolant before you start, refill whith proper coolant, some 95 up gm require dexcool anti freeze (orange in color).

Engine coolant


you may want to try finding a tube of graphite usually sold at wal-mart in the automotive section that will clearly state it is for coolant systems; the graphite will build up around the hole and usually fix the leak; if not, consult your local mechanic to find the root of the problem... most likely a leaking coolant line, hose or radiator

1998 chevy monte carlo leaking coolant


It's a 99% chance of water pump leak or the housing at the timing chain that the water pump sits on.
Water pumps can and do leak one minute then seal themselves.
A cheap fix most use is go to a 7 lb pressure cap on the rad.

1997 Cevrolet Cavalier 2.4 liter engine leaks antifreeze


If it is the water pump it will have a rad hose attached to it. There is supposed to be a small hole in the bottom of the water pump. When it starts leaking, it's time to replace the pump. You can do it yourself. A few wrenches and a couple hours is all you need. If you are unsure pick up a Haynes manual for your car when you get the new pump.

Leaking engine coolant from bottom of engine front passenger side


Probably a water pump seal unfortunately. Pressurize the system, with the engine off, use a mirror to look under the water pump pulley to see if any fluid is dripping from the water pump seal weep hole.
If it is, change the water pump.
Good luck, let me know.
