Your leak could be anywhere. The radiator, the water pump gasket... If you have a cracked block coolant can leak into the oil-pan or out of the cylinder head etc

SOURCE: 2005 Corolla LE when to flush coolant and change hoses, thermosta

Change the thermostat and the fluid, that is more than enough. The hoses should be replaced if they are soft or leaking.  I'm presuming your car has 100k+ miles.  so also change the belts.

SOURCE: losing brake fluid(2001 kia sportage)

Check the rear wheel cylinders if you have drum brakes on the rear. Check the master cylinder cap to be sure it's on right & snug. Use D.O.T. 3 fluid,not synthetic. If you're losing fluid there's a reason. Check the front brake pads & slides for the calipers,could be frozen with rust & eating up the pads. Fluid would seem low if the pads are shot.

Water coming out of overflow


Try getting a coolant tester & making sure that you coolant/water mix is right. Also make sure that you're using the right type of coolant for your vehicle. After that I would check the 2 hoses to make sure neither is plugged. If you have too much water in your mix, it could get hotter and overflow.

Why my Kia Sportage 2002 will tend to heat up when running and the coolant is thrown outside radiotor


remove the thermostat and see if it still does the same. if it does, then you have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. if the temperature stays low without a thermostat and it does not throw coolant out then replace the thermostat with a new one.

My heater on my 2005 uk spec sportage does not seem to put out much heat at all on climate control or manual modes, what can be wrong?


Hello Stan. Change the thermostat under the hood. This is an easy and inexpensive fix and it almost always is the fix to the symptoms you are describing.

If you will be changing the thermostat yourself, here is a link to the step-step instructions http://www.ehow.com/how_7373140_replace-thermostat-2001-kia-sportage.html

I have a 1997 kia overheating i have removed the thermostat


You have to install a new Thermostat because if the motor has no water pump thermostat sends all the coolant to the radiator and therefore the engine never warmed and you will not have heat because the coolant never be heated

Getting warmer,maybe just not flowing correctly?bubbles quick in az! not bad yet!!


while your car is running and, warmed up; squeeze the top radiator hose; if you feel coolant flowing your thermostat is open and your waterpump is working if your waterpump fails it usually drips coolant out of a "weep" hole on to the ground first.

How do you know if you cracked your head gasket, or if it's blown, or if it is something wrong with your car.


Engine cold, you open the radiator cap. You'll lose some coolant, so having a deep drip pan underneath is advisable. Be aware that antifreeze is poisonous to pets, as they are attracted to the sweet smell, and will drink it. It is also bad for humans, and should be kept away from children. Can cause blindness.
(Thanks for letting me state that. I feel better now)

First thing, pull the oil dipstick, and observe where the oil level is. You should have your vehicle on a flat level surface. Wipe the dipstick off with a clean rag, and recheck the level. If it is way overfull, and has yellowish globs, you have a blown head gasket, or a cracked engine block.

Getting the engine too hot, can cause a blown head gasket. Not enough antifreeze, or changing it when it's the change interval, can cause the engine to freeze, and crack the block.
Bring the dipstick close to your nose, and see if you can smell antifreeze.

Start the engine and observe the coolant. You may need a flashlight. You will see some bubbles as the coolant flows, through the coolant tubes of the radiator. This is normal. As the engine warms up, and the thermostat opens, if you see a constant stream of bubbles coming to the top, you have a blown head gasket.
