Hi , if you lift up your passenger side floor carpet and check underneath if there any coolant. If it`s dry you know the leak is in the engine bay ,if it`s wet could be either inside or outside of the firewall. In the engine bay check the hose clamps on both side of the hose if you can tight them or if one a those spring clamps try to reposition them. If you have hose clamp right at the firewall then you can easily change the hoses otherwise you have to access it from under or worst case behind the dash. Hope that helps.

Could it the water pump


Coolant leaks can be difficult to trace because the leak can migrate away from the source. To start with, dry off all areas that are wet. Then ,with a flash light, inspect the hose and water pump to see where the leak originates. This is done with the engine running so be mindful of all moving parts as you look through the engine compartment. It may be the hose that is leaking.

Hello: Check the coolant overflow tank, the hoses and the metal pipes the hoses attach to. If there is bubbling in the tank after driving the you may be low on coolant or have a blown head gasket problem.

Imy 98 buick is overheating the water comes out from the pasenger side inside da car..right under the glove box


That is where your Heater core is located. Its like a little radiater that your vents blow thru to get hot air for heating your interior. If thats leaking, its not gunna stop. Take this car in right away before you run your coolent dry and trash your car.
