See for crack's or leak in any of the water or coolant circulating line connected to the engine, radiator, & coolant resivor bottle. see for those part's this are rubber tube connected from engine to the water or coolant liquid cooling system. see for that if your coolant resivor is not crack or broken that can too also cause the problem. see for raditor weather it is ok or not & lastly finally see for water pump system in engine that can also cause the problem if still doubtful just look for your nearest VW, SKODA, AUDI ..etc. dealer or authorised service centre for the help & so till then my friend have happy motoring & see you soon....!

How do I fix this coolant leak?


This could be a hose or a radiator leak.

And antifreeze is supposed to be bright green or pink for a car of that age. Brown is never a good color for antifreeze--it means car was run with too little antifreeze for a significant period of time and the block and water pump has rusted internally. This is not a threat to the engine block, but it will kill the water pump eventually.

Find the leak, and take appropriate action--if it's a hose, you can replace that yourself and save $. If it's the radiator or even heater core (not likely), it's a trip to the shop for sure, unless you are able to handle the degree of difficulty that goes along with replacing a radiator (about 6-7 on a 10-scale, and usually a major hassle). A radiator shop can fix the leak, saving you new radiator $.

The 2001 ford ecsort ls is leaking all the water out in a short distance and is overheating


Are u referring to the coolant,if so find where it is leaking,if u find out its a hose u can replace it.I suggest after u fix the leak to flush out your coolant system and use antifreeze when u re fill it.Fill it with half antifreeze and half water.

My coolant is rapidly disappearing, and I have no clue why?


IF YOU GOT TOO MUCH WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM AND DONT HAVE 50 / 50 MIXTURE OF ANTIFREEZE AND WATER. WATER WILL EVAPORATE BOIL AWAY.CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS LOOK AT TOP AND BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSES LEAKS, CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND BOTH RADIATOR CONTAINER AND RADIATOR CORES LEAKING. CHECK WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE. IF LEAKING WATER NEED REPLACING, CHECK ENGINE CRANKCASE ANTIFREEZE WILL LEAK IN CRANK CASE OR LEAK IN THE INTAKE GASKET COOLANT WILL BURN WITH FUEL.MANY THINGS WILL CAUSE COOLANT LOST.

Why my oldsmobile alero 1999 wont keep water in


CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND THE RADIATOR LOOK DOWN BETWEEN COOLING FANS AND RADIATOR SIDES FOR SIGNS OF ANTIFREEZE.CHECK ALL RADIATORS HOSES AND HEATER HOSES.IF ALL LOOK GOOD CHECK ENGINE OIL FOR COOLANT LEAKS.IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE COOLANT LEAKING IN CRANK CASE.YOU HAVE A HEAD GASKET LEAK.YOU NEED TO CHANGE OIL + FILTER. GET THE HEAD GASKET FIX.BECAUSE LEAK IN THE CRANK CASE WILL LOCK UP THE ENGINE.IF CRANK CASE OIL LOOKS OKAY.YOU DONT HAVE THE COOLANT CORRECT MIXTURE.YOU SHOULD HAVE 50/50 ANTIFREEZE AND WATER.

There is smoke coming from under the manifold area i can't see any visible leaks but i have noticed there is a nasty smell of antifreeze as well. The low coolant light is on but there is enough coolant in...


have your cooling system pressure tested, that should give a place to start as to where the leak is and how much it is going to cost to have the problem fixed

I would not use stop leak, I would try and locate the leak as it may just be from a hose which is an easy fix. If you can't locate it I would consider purchasing the UV dye for your coolant system then using a black light and you will be able to easily find the leak. As far as coolant if you go to your local auto parts store they have coolant that is made to be added to any kind of coolant and will be safe for your vehicle. Just make sure to note if it is pre mixed or not, if it is not you should be diluting it with 1 part coolant 1 part water.
Thanks,

I have a 1999 jimmy with 115,000 miles and I,m hearing about the intake manifolds leaking antifreeze what concerns should i have with my jimmy and what type of antifreeze should I be using


A leaking manifold could cost you a VERY expensive repair. I recommend getting it fixed as soon as you can. And with the antifreeze...seeing how it it a GM it should take DEX-COOL. But look under the hood and look for a white sticker and it should say "This vehicle takes DEX-COOL coolant. Do not mix with any other coolant" and if not the cap for the coolant should say so. If so, then obviously you need DEX-COOL or universal coolant. Universal will not harm anything, but I would use the manufacters reccommendations just on the safe side.

92 Toyota Camry, antifreeze leaking no leak found


have you had the undercarriage inspected for white stains from coolant, rust stains if your system is corroded? How many miles? has the water pump ever been replaced, that would be my guess, water pumps leak while the eng is running and the hot engine evaporates the coolant, so in many cases none on the ground. Also have the system pressure tested by a shop and put on a rack to check for signs of leaking under the car.

Smoke coming out vents when defrost is on and temp gauge goes up and down in 1994 Taurus


The fluctuation in the temp gage indicates a low coolant situation. The smoke you see from the defroster vent is actually antifreeze that is leaking from the heater core somewhere and as the antifreeze evaporates from the heat it causes a vapor to produce. You should smell a very sweet smell when you see the vapor. If so it is definitely antifreeze. Find the leak and fix it. Then refill your coolant system to specs and you should be good to go.
