The best thing you can do is get some dye and check with a black light to see were it is coming from if it is from the water pump you can see that easy just look at the bottom of pump there is a hole in it were it will leak out good luck

Overheating,temp gauge not working. Loses water with and without boiling over. has new water pump and sepintine belt.

I'd be looking at a head gasket or worse. If you're loosing coolant and there's no leak, the water has to be going somewhere...

Check for any signs of water leaking to the ground and if you do locate a leak follow the path. There could be a leak from the drain plugs, water jacket freeze plugs, water pump seals, the coolent temp switch, damaged gaskets, or a small crack somewhere in the coolent system. Check all hoses to see if they leaking or loose at clamps and connections. And if you cannot find a leak anywhere. check the radiater core or header tank, if the leak is in the radiater you should remove and replace, or have professionally repaired. Still can't find any leak. Ckeck your oil for water or foam. And if you do see that it is here, it's most likely a head gasket leak.

My 96 Jimmy leaks coolant from below, sometimes worse than other times. What's the problem do you think? How expensive? Thanks! Gordon

Look at the water pump. These will usually leak more when the engine is cold, such as when it sits over night, and can sometimes stop leaking all together when the engine is warm. There is a breather hole in the pump, right below the fan blade, and that's usually where you'll find the leak. See if the lower hose has a coolant stain on the bottom of it. follow it up to the water pump and you should probaly see the breather hole leaking.

Car over heating

any leaks? if your coolant is disipearing then yes its a leak or the head gasket is eating it, make sure your over flow is full, if it keeps eating it with out leaking out of the engine you need a hg, if its not eating it and still over heating then the water pump is out or it could be leaking from the water pump also. either way your loosing coolant somewhere and the water pump cant push air so the engine over heats from lack of coolant and with lack of coolant it doesnt flow up to the thermostat and to the heater core and that is why you arnt getting heat in the car. sorry if its not an easy fix but atleast its explained clearer for you. good luck let me know how it works out
