Did you replace the gasket with a new one, and made sure the old one was all scraped off of the housing and engine block? check the housing to make sure it didn't get cracked if the bolts were overtightened.

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Escort. Heater is not warming up.

well most likely your 10 year old heater core is plugged, or the cool air flap on the box is broken. Ask a dealer to tell you which, if it is the door they may have a quick fix. if it is the core, then you are talking about more labor costs and you should find a shop which does heating & a/c work so they are good at pulling and replacing dashboards and are familiar with any short cuts.

SOURCE: Fan was running fast and leaking antifreeze in my

Sounds like you have another hole somewhere. The cheaper part would be the lower radiator hose, but any hose like a heater return hose can leak.

The proper way to test can be one of two methods. The pressure tester, which may be borrowed from places like Autozone, Oreilys, or Advance is similar to a bicycle pump.
There are fittings used to test the cap or the Radiator. What is good about this method is that it can be used on a cold engine.

In conjuction with this test or as a stand alone test is a chemical dye test. The chemical is added to the Radiator and after the water is circulated an Ultraviolet pen light is shined on the engine and Radiator.

With enclosed Yellow glasses(in some kits) the light is shined on the leak and the glowing dye will help you spot the leak. You should NOT pressurize the system with the pressure tester BEYOND Factory limits. Most of the time the Pressure rating is on the Radiator cap.

If there is just a loose hose clamp, use an adjustable clamp which can be opened and then reconnected once it is around the hose. This way you will not need to remove either end of the hose to slip on the new clamp. The old clamp can be slide up out of the way and remain on anyplace on the hose.

Thermostat replacement

take the 2 bolts on the thermostat housing out, pull up on the housing, antifreeze will go everywhere, pull the thermostat out, put the new one in, in the same position you pulled the old one out. replace gasket, put the housing back on, put bolts in, fill radiator, start the car warm it up looking for leaks and monitoring coolant level until car is up to temp. you will be able to see current in the coolant with the radiator cap off when the thermostat opens. A couple things to keep in mind. 1 coolant will expand and slowly rise out of the filler neck between open cycles of the thermostat, 2. VERY important keep the cap off the radiator while warming up the car and monitoring coolant levels.

Leaking antifreeze

could be from numerous locations or just a hose,water pump freeze plug ,you will need to look for antifreez leaks on the floor to get general location of leak, and then try to pin point for external leaks ,leaks under pressure can be confusing,they will beharder to pinpoint,sinse they spray coolant everywhere.

My antifreeze is leaking and its freezin cold?

first find the leak and repair it. second, make sure it does not overheat again or you may also need a thermostat. Your heater will not work when coolant level drops below a certain level. since it's leaking, likely that level has been reached. After repair has been made, re-fill with 50/50 antifreeze mix, with the engine running and heater on full heat to allow air in system to escape. If while filling it begins to overheat and keeps spitting out coolant, replace the thermostat.

you may have antifreeze in your electrics, in some cases it can turn acidic. and cause electrical faults, if you have a leak and it goes everywhere you need to flush the hole area with water to clean it off, it can even remove paint is some cases depending on the type you have put in the water system. all your wiring will need to be check and cleaned, remove battery when doing this. as you dont want to short out the battery with water.
