SOURCE: radiator leak

if you want to make sure you can put some soap bubles on the hose and see where the leak has actually taken place as a first step in diagnostic.

just pour the soap on the top and you can see (not inside the radiator), once it blows then there is your leakage.

either the radiator itself is the prob or the hose

SOURCE: Coolant filling up overflow bottle

You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

SOURCE: Central locking problem:- doors locking

The central locking system is controlled by the ecu, simply a common fault, disconnect the passenger door terminal to the lock and see what happens if the other doors lock normally then this confirms that there could be a fault in the wiring loom or relay if the doors unlock after locking then its a ecu problem. See an auto electrician
Regarding the water consunption what colour is the oil hope its not cream, radiator cap may need replacing as it could be blowing the water out, if the reseviour bottle is always full then this confirms it..Hope this helps you out

Leaks water undercar from frame and it overheats


You need to find the source of the Coolant Leak. It may be a leaking radiator or Rubber hose Leak if the leak is way up by the front of the car. If it is leaking elsewhere on the engine it may be a bad Water Pump or Head gasket,

It has 266,000 mi after driving about 60 mi you can smell antifreeze but no sign of fluid loss


The fact that you smell it means one of two things:

Either it is getting into the passenger compartment, in which case it could be a pinhole leak in the heater core, with the leakage draining out the A/C condensation tray OR,

It may me a leaking hose at a clamp or the water pump near the block so that the coolant is evaporating on the block and that is what you smell. Look around the hose connections and at the weep hole for the water pump for signs of coolant (darker staining).

2002 monte carlo ls 3.4l Fill coolant reserve up when car cold. Run car till reach normal temperature. Check coolant reserve, coolant gone. No leaks, no coolant smell. Where is it going?


there is either a pocket of air or the car is burning the coolant if there is no leak. check inside the car for any coolant leaking under the dash if so the heater core has a hole in it.

Water is leaking from the floor vents what could be the proble?


Check your heater radiator. It is usually mounted behind/near the glove box areas on most cars. It is like a small version of the large radiator that is mounted on the front of your vehicle under the hood. Antifreeze and coolant (does it smell a little like antifreeze?) flows thru your front radiator, thru the block and hoses, and cycles thru the radiator for your heating system. If the radiator is leaking, often it cycles thru the vents on the interior.
Another possibility MIGHT be the AC system and condensation/AC coolant that is building up in/on the lines and transferring thru the vents.

Leaking coolant


Is the coolant clean that leaks out? Have you put a newspaper under the car to try and isolate the leaks location by the drip stains? Likely spots are the engine water pump and hose connection points at have worked loose. If the leak seems to come from the rear of the engine it may be a leaking heater core, in that case you should have a kind of sweet smell (the smell of vaporized coolant) in the cabin when the heater is on.

Possibility of a cracked block. how can i be sure/


Vehicles: Any with the above symptoms

A cracked cylinder block will cause either:
(a) motor oil contamination of engine coolant
(b) coolant contamination of motor oil
(c) white exhaust smoke, due to coolant seeping into one or more cylinders.
(d) more than one of the above
(e) all of the above

Oil infiltrating into coolant is easy to see - drain some coolant out through the pepcock at the bottom of the radiator, and place it into a styrofoam coffee cup. Oil droplets floating on top of the green (or orange) coolant are easily seen. Or visualize oil by looking into the top of the radiator through the radiator cap.
Coolant infiltrating into and mixing with motor oil will permanently damage the engine (seizing it up through loss of lubrication), and must be prevented.
A leak from above the front suspension is, as physicians like to put it, "nonspecific", with the most likely cause a water pump seal or hose/hose connection.
A leak from near the fire wall will usually be a heater core hose, or hose connection.
A coolant leak on the same side of the engine as the water pump is a leaking water pump or water pump seal until proven otherwise.

To rule out everythng else, here's the 1999 Honda CR-V Troubleshooting Guide for Coolant Loss/Coolant Leaking:

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Water Pump - Worn, Cracked or Leaking Water Pump, or Water Pump gasket.
2 Inspect Head Gasket - Leaking Head Gasket.
3 Inspect Radiator - Leaking Radiator Hose(s).
4 Inspect Radiator Cap - Worn or Damaged Radiator Cap.
5 Inspect Radiator Hose - Ruptured, Cracked or Leaking Radiator Hose.
6 Inspect Freeze Plug - Leaking Freeze Plug(s).
7 Inspect Intake Manifold Gasket - Leaking, Worn, or Damaged Intake Manifold Gasket.
8 Inspect Water Outlet - Cracked, Leaking or Damaged Water Outlet.
9 Inspect Heater Control Valve - Leaking or Faulty Heater Control Valve.
10 Inspect Radiator Drain Pepcock - Loose, Damaged, or Faulty Radiator Drain Pepcock, or Pepcock O-ring.
11 Inspect Engine (DOMESTIC ONLY) - Cracked Cylinder Block Leaking Coolant into at least one Cylinder, causing white exhaust smoke.

I am having a problem with antifreeze smell and leak. I can't see where the leak is coming from but I do see spots on the ground. It does not over heat but it does have a sent of pancake syrup once heated....


LEAK COULD BE COMING FROM RADIATOR.WHEN YOU FIRST START VECHICLE UP IN MORNING LET ENGINE IDLE TO GET UNTIL THERMOSTAT OPEN AND COOLANT PRESSURE BUILD UP. TURN ENGINE.OFF. RAISE HOOD YOU WILL SEE LEAK. THE COOLANT PRESSURE WILL PUSH OUT ANTIFREEZE.LOOK FOR LEAKS AROUND TOP RADIATOR HOSE AND LOWER RADIATOR HOSE.LOOK ON SIDES RADIATOR AND LOOK BELOW RADIATOR AREA WHERE COOLANTS FANS LOCATED RADIATOR CORES WILL LEAK AND LOOK AROUND WATER PUMP + BYPASS HOSE + CHECK HEATER HOSES TO HEATER CORE THAT GOES THROUGH BACK LOWER FIRE WALL.

Water dripping right front underneath


Is what the liquid plain water or coolant (water mixed with antifreeze). touch and smell the liquid, no smell = water, antifreeze smell and oily feel = coolant.
If plain water, could be Air Condition condensation dripping from condensation drain which is normal. (this drain is usually located near the center of the vehicle).
If coolant, could be leak(s) from: radiator, radiator hose, heater hose, water pump, engine freeze plug. A coolant system pressure test should show what is leaking.
